Chris and I believe that if we only did things that we wanted to do each day, we would eventually get bored because we would lack purpose and challenge. I’m working really hard on embracing the growth and learning experiences that are being presented to me through Lite Pink, and I wanted to share a little more of that journey with you all today. Chris and I discuss why your ideal days might not actually be what you’ve dreamed they’d be because so much of our happiness comes from getting over obstacles. We talk about how we’re learning to embrace the tough days right now instead of wishing them away and waiting for a life that doesn’t have them.
