1: Shannon Marie Staral | Shannon, We are so proud of the women you have become. You have so much living head of you,, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Yesterday is but a vision, and tomorrow is only a dream. But today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a dream of hope. Smile often, dream big, and laugh a lot.
