Looking Back
Dec. 12, 2018

Collin Weltzien - Vice President
Arcadia FFA Chapter
Section 3

Hi Everyone,

With chapter visits complete and Checkpoint #2 Training in the books, this week marks the first in quite some time where an FFA event isn’t found on my calendar. Now, there’s certainly plenty of FFA related items on my to-do list, but for me, the “week off” means plenty of quality time spent working on the farm. It’s been quite a change of pace in my routine and a slightly different work environment to say the least! Going from interacting with 100 or more students in a school day to maybe encountering a total of 3 or 4 people daily out on the farm has definitely been a changeup. But, as I do occasionally, I got to thinking. And as I got to thinking about my unique week, I realized just how fast chapter visit season flew by.

It seems like yesterday I was given the task of visiting the 25 FFA chapters in Section 3. I can vividly remember the classic, “Oh my, how am I going to handle that?!” feeling. And 3 short months later, here I am looking back thinking, “Wow, where did they all go?”. I can’t even begin to describe how much fun my chapter visit experience was! The conversations I had and the connections I made with FFA members from across my section are memories I am forever grateful for. I came to realize just how special it was to have the opportunity to directly impact the lives of other students through my chapter visit experience. But why did it take me until chapter visits were over to come to that realization?

You see, often times, we never truly understand the value of our experiences until they become memories. We tend to get so caught up with “what’s next” in our lives that we hit cruise control and forget to celebrate the present moments. Sometimes it takes a look to the past to fully appreciate what we’ve accomplished.

As our FFA experiences continue to grow as we say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019, let’s not forget to live in the present and appreciate the progress we make with every moment. But let’s also make sure to take time to reflect on just how far we’ve come.

If you ever need anything, please don’t hesitate to give me a jingle. I wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holiday season spent with family and friends!

Take Care,
Collin

Finding the Good
Dec. 09, 2018

Paige Nelson - Secretary
Ellsworth FFA Chapter
Section 2

Hey there everyone!

Most say it is the most wonderful time of the year; we celebrate the holidays with friends, family, food, gifts, traditions, and more! If you are like me you look forward to all those things, but living in Wisconsin we all know that snow, ice, and the pesky wind come along with all that good stuff.

In the winter, I often find myself longing for warmer days. Are there times when you wish for warm weather too? Maybe we are all guilty of wishing time away so we can hurry up and get to whatever it is we are looking forward to.

The other night I was riding in the car wishing I could be at home already in my pjs watching a movie or hanging out with my family where it was cozy and warm. It was a particularly cold night and while I was being grumpy about the cold I noticed the snow looked like glitter sprinkled over the fields, trees, and whatever else it covered. It was beautiful, and completely changed my mood. Growing up my mom had always told me "you can tell it is really cold when the snow looks like glitter," all of a sudden I appreciated the cold a little more.

Similarly, my mood was changed this morning while driving. Everything had a beautiful layer of frost from the fog I was so excited to drive in the night before. These were just two little reminders to me that we can find the good in situations and our attitude may change. I can assure you I am still not a fan of the cold winter months, but I have a little more tolerance and appreciation after those two reminders of how beautiful winter can be. Maybe I don't want winter to be over quite yet.

Are there times where you could find the good in situations? Would finding the good allow you to live more in the moment? Maybe you would be better able to appreciate the little things by finding good in everything. Everyday can be the most wonderful time of the year if we find the good, stop wishing away our time and allow it to be beautiful and wonderful.

Wonderful Wishes,

Paige

Holiday Cheer
Dec. 05, 2018

Alexis Kwak - Vice President
Prairie Farm FFA Chapter
Section 1

Hey there everyone!

With the holiday season in full swing, I hope you are enjoying your time with friends, family, and studying a bit for all those tests you have before the break. This week, I got to spend some time with my FFA family as we started to plan for the second half of the year.

First item of business was the Halftime Conference. We are so ready to put on a great conference this year for all of you! The theme is Agents of Change, with a dance theme of Blackout. Come prepared, it’s going to be wild. We also got to see our favorite National FFA Facilitator, the one and only Wyatt Shaw.

This was Wyatt's last time in Wisconsin with us, making our last training session bittersweet. We made sure to give him a good Wisconsin Christmas before he left. We went to Jill’s, our section 7 officer, home and had Christmas dinner and gift exchange. We sent him back home to Oklahoma with cheese curds, lots of Wisconsin FFA themed items, and hopefully a few memories. We can’t thank him enough for the skills and life lessons he shared with us throughout our training sessions.

I want to send a huge thank you to all of you for the first half of this year. I have loved every moment of it and it’s been you members and advisors that have made it great! You keep doing what you’re doing out there because you all are doing great things. Keep growing, keeping learning, and keep being awesome. I hope you have an amazing holiday season! Hold your family and friends close and if you need anything, don’t be a stranger!

Catch you later,
Alexis

What it Means to Wear Blue
Dec. 03, 2018

Emily Kruse - Parliamentarian
Elkhorn FFA Chapter
Section 10

The blue corduroy jacket. This piece of clothing tends to generate many questions when I have visited high schools. From staff to students, I’ve heard multiple comments on it:

“Do you wear THAT every day?”
“When are you going to catch up with the
times?”
“I did not know corduroy jackets were still
around!”

Those are only a few of the comments I have received on our jacket. Although corduroy may not be the most “in” item, corduroy is full of tradition. Items that are labelled as “in” eventually go “out of style”, our jackets have been a part of our official dress since 1933. There have been so many changes throughout the past 85 years, but our pride in our organization has not changed.

Maybe a fancy blazer is more common, but we are not trying to be common. We are leaders, progressive agriculturists, the future workforce and part of a tradition that continues to grow. We represent those who came before us and lay more groundwork for those who will follow.

There are times that I get shivers when I put on my blue jacket. Shivers from the magnified feelings of pride, confidence and hope. This jacket is not only an article of clothing but it is our organization’s traditions, present and future in one. We are FFA and proud of our organization

Wear your blue with pride!

Stuff That Bus
Dec. 02, 2018

Amelia Hayden - President
Big Foot FFA Chapter
President

Happy December! As we enter the winter months, there are often lots of volunteering opportunities for us in our communities – as we prepare for this, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on experiences I’ve had and what we can learn from them.

Recently, I volunteered at a “Stuff the Bus” event. We wore our ugly sweaters and talked to customers at the local grocery store, inviting them to donate canned goods or purchase a pre-packaged bag filled with items that the food pantry needed. Afterwards, we rode the bus across town and unloaded a whole bus load of food at the pantry! Then, it needed to be sorted. Canned vegetables. Pasta. Soap. Tuna. Canned fruit. Everything has a box, and then the boxes are stacked up on the shelves to make it sort of “store-like.”

While unloading the bus takes a while, it is this sorting process that takes the longest. I’ve volunteered at this event for many years, and there are a few things that seem to challenge us.

1)There’s a lot of people in a small space.
2)The people who work at the food pantry know where everything is, and the FFA members volunteering don’t always know where it all goes.
3)The pre-packaged bags have all the same stuff, but there are always a few extra donations that throw off our rhythm, because we don’t have a box for that.

From those challenges, there are a few things I have learned about service.
1)There are a lot of people who want to volunteer. Sometimes, this can be hard because all those people aren’t quite sure where to start. As FFA members and supporters, one role we can take is to help provide opportunities for all those people. Invite more people to participate in your chapter’s events to learn more about what FFA does in your community. Bring a friend to the next service event you attend.
2)Sometimes, you won’t know everything about the needs around you. Maybe you won’t know where stuff needs to go, who is in charge, or what your exact role is. Find a way to contribute what you know how to do. If you know where the canned beans are being sorted to, make that you mission to sort all the canned beans. If you are good at working with children, sign up for stations at events where there are a lot of kids. You can use your knowledge and strengths to better help other people.
3)It may seem like those strengths don’t fit into a “box.” Just like we had some extra donations beyond our boxed categories that threw off our rhythm, we may sometimes think that our extra talents are out of place and actually just disrupt things more. And it’s not true. You bring something to the table that is unique, workable, and can help to make each service project more impactful.

This season, as you take advantage of ways to volunteer in your community, remember to find the people who want to help, find ways to use your knowledge and strengths, and to serve others in small ways.

Happy serving,
Amelia

Leaders for All
Nov. 26, 2018

Mitchell Schroepfer - Treasurer
Antigo FFA Chapter
Section 8

Hello Again Everyone,

With the Thanksgiving break behind us and the end of the fall semester coming up fast I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my chapter visit thus far. My time with our members has been one full of memories made and lessons learned. Although most of my time has been spent cheery and light-hearted, there have been moments that have required a more solemn attitude. One of these moments has repeated itself more than once.

During an activity in which students reflect on leaders in their lives, I have had several students share that they have no leaders to look up to. There are so many emotions that come forth all at once, but this unfortunate truth leaves me speechless every time.

I bring this up after Thanksgiving because I want all of us to remember and be thankful for the leaders that helped us get here today. Some of us may take these leaders for granted, I know I have, but I hope we all take this opportunity to appreciate their impact.

Finally, for those of you looking for a leader, don’t be afraid to start with your chapter advisor. If you aren’t comfortable there, strive to be your own leader, there is no reason you can’t be a role model for others and yourself. I challenge you to be the best that you can be.

Thanks again and take care,

Mitchell

Give Thanks Today and Every Day
Nov. 22, 2018

Amber Patterson - Vice President
River Ridge FFA Chapter
Section 4

It’s no secret that we seem to be hearing Christmas songs being played over the radio earlier and earlier every year. Even before Halloween, stores were advertising Christmas candies and TV shows were revealing “How to Score the Perfect Holiday Gift”. Don’t get me wrong, Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love decorating with lights outside, putting up the Christmas tree, and sipping hot chocolate after a cold day. But, sometimes when we get so wound up in Christmas excitement, we tend to overlook a very special holiday: Thanksgiving!
We need to take a step back and realize how great Thanksgiving really is! It is so exciting every year to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or Football in the morning while you smell all the delicious food cooking that you are going to eat over the next few hours! But, thanksgiving is more than just food, fun parades, football, and shopping. It’s for spending time with family and reflecting on all of our great blessings.
It’s easy to forget how fortunate we all are to have houses to come home to, nutritious food on our dinner plates, schools to attend, and families that loves us unconditionally. The Thanksgiving holiday might only be celebrated one out of 365 days in a year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have an attitude of gratitude every day!

Happy Thanksgiving,
Amber

Continuing the Traditions
Nov. 17, 2018

Jillian Tyler - Vice President
Granton FFA Chapter
Section 7

Hello Wisconsin FFA!

With rifle deer hunting underway, Thanksgiving just days away and Christmas right around the corner come many traditions. Traditions that happen year after year never changing. For some maybe deer hunting is your favorite tradition, hunting with all of your family. Others maybe you love Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, sharing good food, funny stories and memories from throughout the years. Maybe it is secret Santa with your cousins or decorating the house for the holidays with your family. If you have read my profile you will see that cutting down the Christmas tree is my favorite holiday tradition.

This tradition is something that my family has done ever since I can remember. Going to the tree farm, walking the endless aisles of trees until we finally pick out the perfect tree. Then squeezing it through the front door and cutting off whatever necessary, so that way it can stand up without bending on the ceiling. Even after my older siblings and I have graduated high school and began college this tradition still remains in our family today. You see that is what is so special about traditions, they happen year after year never changing.

Looking back to the state FFA theme, Our Tradition. Our Future. Our Legacy. What are the traditions within your FFA chapter? What are your traditions as an FFA member? Do these traditions help to mold your future? Will they help change the lives of future FFA members? The holiday traditions we have as families are traditions that help make us who we are. As we grow up, move on and lose some of those we love, we are left with traditions, the legacies of those who came before us.

Today, tomorrow and every day forward push yourself to start a new tradition, leaving your legacy and changing the future for the better. If you ever need anything I am always happy to help, just give me a call, message me on Facebook or email me.

Continuing the traditions,
Jillian Tyler

Opportunities Are Presented
Nov. 12, 2018

Sarah Calaway - Vice President
Denmark FFA Chapter
Section 9

This past weekend we had the opportunity to make a stop in Stevens Point for the 212/360 Conference. This gave us the chance to catch up with old friends as well as make some new ones as we explored our virtues and vision.

In the 212 conference we looked at how our virtues can lead us down the right path and how we can use accountability partners to help us reach our goals. In the 360 conference we learned about how our vision and how we can use persistence to create followers and achieve our goals. In both conferences we are able to improve our leadership skills and learn more about how setting goals can help us be successful in creating plans for tasks we look to accomplish.

On Friday night we were able to meet new people on and off the dance floor at the Dance and Pizza Party. This was a time for members to interact with each other and meet new friends whether that was on the dance floor or through a friendly game of cornhole. All this fun was not had without sporting our best Red, White, and Blue outfits to show our thankfulness of the great country we live in.

These conferences are always a wonderful way to improve ourselves and those around us through the leadership skills gained. I am thankful to FFA for providing so many wonderful opportunities for us as members to take advantage of.

Remember to always be thankful for the opportunities we are presented with and take advantage of as many as possible in your years in the Blue Jacket.

Until Next time,
Sarah Calaway

Giving Thanks
Nov. 11, 2018

Ashley Hagenow - Reporter
Rio FFA Chapter
Section 6

Hey Wisconsin FFA!

I hope everyone has been doing swell during these past couple of blistery weeks! Seeing that snow has already been falling all across Wisconsin, it’s almost time to cut the evergreen trees down, hang the ornaments, and get the cookies and milk ready for the Christmas holiday season! But we must take a step back and first focus on another important day: Thanksgiving. Now, I know we all love Thanksgiving for the delicious food (Is three servings of stuffing socially acceptable?!?) and the time spent with family members that we may only get to see once or twice a year, but we must also remember the important significance of the day itself: giving thanks. Thanksgiving is one day out of 365 others that we take the time to reflect on all that we are blessed to have in our lives, as well as the people, places, and events that bring joy and purpose to our everyday existence. So, the real question is: What are you especially thankful for?

If you are anything like me, you might sometimes take for granted the people and experiences that have brought you to your present state of life. We sometimes forget to thank our parents or siblings for all they do to help us out, whether it be giving rides to and from practices, doing our chores, or cleaning our official dress after an FFA conference. It might slip our minds to remember all of the support and love that our friends and families give to our lives. We might sometimes forget all of the things that our FFA advisors do and sacrifice for us in order that we can compete at an FFA speaking contest or attend a leadership conference, such as Half-Time Conference or the Washington Leadership Conference. There are so many incredible things to be thankful for in each and every day of our lives, but yet there is only one day out of the year that we specially recognize and give thanks for everything we have and experience.

I ask you all to give thanks each day, for the little and big things, and for everything you experience, feel, and think. Give thanks daily for friends, family, and mentors in our lives who inspire and bring out the best in us. Be thankful for the clothes on our backs, the food in our bellies, and the roofs over our heads. Be thankful to play a role in an amazing industry such as agriculture, and for contributing to a long-standing legacy of feeding the world and being at the forefront of innovation and technology. Let us give thanks for the promise of better days through better ways, and for how we can contribute to the success of our future. Give thanks for all that we have done to get ourselves to where we are today, and the journey that lies ahead for each and every one of us to get where we want to go.

This holiday season and every day, remember to give thanks for all that we have, encounter, and dream. If you ever need anything, I am only a phone call, Facebook message, or email away! Have a wonderful next couple of weeks and enjoy the upcoming holidays!

Thankful and grateful,
Ashley

Goals and Gondola Rides
Nov. 10, 2018

Gaelan Combs - Sentinel
Verona FFA Chapter
Section 5

Happy November, Wisconsin FFA!

November brings us from the picturesque cheery fall to a festive and bright December, bridging the gap between pumpkins and scary movies to hot cocoa and holiday cheer.

As I get into November and look forward to December, however, all I bring myself to thinking is how to make the most out of these cold winter months. Now, you see, I am not by any means a fan of winter, but there’s a few winter activities I can rally behind- one of those being snowboarding.

As we roll into the start of snow dusting the ground, I think back to one of my best memories from the winter is my family’s vacation to Lake Tahoe, California, for a ski trip with my sister as my dad went out for a business trip. We arrived at the start of Squaw Valley’s opening for the season, and Aidan and I were exposed to what true alpine snowboarding was like. Of course, I had been to the local ski hill back home, but here was a whole new ballgame, as saplings stood on the paths and steep trails connected me at the summit to the ground below.

After a quick ride up the gondola, I found myself at the top of the mountain. Now, here I am trying my best to make it from the top back down to the ground on courses more challenging than I ever expected, feeling the mountain air hit me as I snuck in and out from trees as I went down. As I flew down, I focused on the path directly ahead of me; I stared at my two feet. However, after a few runs, I felt bold, and lifted my head up to see the mountains stretch out below me. Trees dotted the landscape around Lake Tahoe, as I stood on top of the world! I saw the full picture of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains.

Oftentimes, we focus on our day to day tasks; we focus on our homework for the night, our next practice after school, or getting ready for the next FFA meeting and drag ourselves from activity to activity. We focus on only what was in front of us. However, we must focus on more than just what stands directly in front of us. We must look up from the ground in front of us, from the day to day activities, like we are on our own ski slope to see the entire picture, to see why we are where we are.

As we come into the middle of the school year and the cold days of winter, focus less on your next day and focus more on your goals. Take time to look past just another practice- see it as a chance to be with friends on your road to the playoffs. More than just another homework assignment, your nightly workload is part of the path to an education. An FFA activity is more than just one thing to plan- it’s building an FFA career for you and your members. Today is more than just one day; today is an opportunity to become great!

We need to never lose track of those big picture moments in our lives. We must always live with the mountains on our horizon.

Keep your head up,

Gaelan Combs

Fall is Here
Nov. 04, 2018

Collin Weltzien - Vice President
Arcadia FFA Chapter
Section 3

Hello Everyone,

Well, November’s here! The “Just One” and only National Convention has come and gone, Halloween is over, corn fields are getting cleaned off, bowhunting is in full swing, football season is getting serious, and the frosty mornings leave no doubt that winter’s on its way. What a beautiful time of year!

When I was in high school, I always looked forward to the start of November. I knew November meant harvest season which transitioned into deer hunting, which led to Thanksgiving, and before long, we’d be cutting down a Christmas tree. As Friday Night Lights started to fade and I prepared for basketball season, I remember thinking about all that had gone on up until this point and looked forward to all that was still coming. November was my tipping point. Once November hit, time seemed to grab another gear.

This year is no different. The transition to November has allowed me time to reflect on the past couple of months. It’s hard to believe how many people I’ve met and places I’ve visited on this journey of a lifetime so far. Between Sectional Leadership Workshops, FIRE Conferences, National Convention, and chapter visits, this fall has been one I will never forget. And as I reminisce on the experiences I’ve had so far, I can’t help but look forward to the remainder of the year. It’s coming. And it’s coming fast!

Let’s all take a moment in November to appreciate what we’ve accomplished and how we’ve grown so far and ponder what we aim to accomplish in the months ahead. I’m eager and enthusiastic to learn what the rest of the year has in store, and I hope you all feel the same. National Convention should have us all fired up, so let’s capitalize on that newfound ambition and use it to keep driving us forward through the FFA year. We’ve come a long way already, but we’ve got a long ways to go! Let’s keep the pedal to the medal and hold on tight because we have more to learn, more to experience, more FFA members to meet, and more memories to make. But we’re ready to rock, so bring it on!

Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you!

Take Care,
Collin

RA....
Nov. 01, 2018

Paige Nelson - Secretary
Ellsworth FFA Chapter
Section 2

In FFA we like to shorten the names of things, its just a fact of life. Who here has even heard of an RA? The first time someone said this did you think, "what in the word are you talking about?" RA...radically astonishing or retiring address? You be the judge.

The first time I went to national convention and sat through a national officers retiring address I was in awe. Since that time I have been hooked. Each year I look forward to hearing all the RAs, even if I'm not in attendance. I am not even ashamed to admit that there are RAs from past national officers still safely stored away on the DVR at home.

Since I have this fascination with RAs, you all may be surprised to learn that this year was actually the first time I have ever had the chance to attend all the sessions at national convention with RAs. I was in heaven! Just as I suspected, none of them disappointed this year. However, there was one in particular that stood out to me, and had me reaching for the kleenex in my bag.

Erica Baier really struck a cord inside me when she was on stage, it didn't help that they showed her getting emotional back stage during her RA. This RA was funny and relatable, similar to most. I was left in awe by how vulnerable she was during this time. She shared her story about something which is all to real and relatable to many of us, she shared her story and struggles of her last 6 months serving as a national officer and battling cancer. Many of us have been impacted in some way by cancer, and it has become all too familiar.

Erica not only shared about cancer but that she has fears, we all have fears. She challenged us to, "Stop fearing the fight and start fighting the fear." Later in her speech we all took a few seconds and were put in a situation that forced us to identify who and what in our lives were important. We aren't alone, there are many other people who care about us, so we need to "Stop fighting fear alone and start fighting fear together." We all have baggage, battles, fears we fight ever day some are larger than others, but we can all take the opportunity to take those things on together.

This was only one of the RAs this year, if you weren't at convention or if you missed a session go search on Facebook or Youtube if you need a little inspiration or a motivational message. I'll be honest, for the specific reason of feeling motivated and inspired when I'm having a bad day or maybe when I'm sick and want something to watch on TV that's why I have past RAs saved on the DVR.

Until Next Time,

Paige

All Roads Lead to Indy
Oct. 28, 2018

Alexis Kwak - Vice President
Prairie Farm FFA Chapter
Section 1

Many people wonder how to survive the National FFA Convention. There’s lots of driving, walking, sessions, people to meet, and so much more! On top of that, we have to figure out how to fit it all into four days, give or take. Overall, it’s a wild ride.

Throughout the week, I wished I had a survival guide. For all of you attending the convention next year, here you go. Surviving Convention 101: 5 Tips for your trip in Indianapolis.

1.Allot plenty of time to eat

Running down FFA Way on the way to session while chowing down a plate of nachos, pizza, or whatever else you got to eat isn’t fun. Avoid this at all costs by eating during low traffic hours and making sure you have the time necessary to stand in line.

2.Sleep while you can

Bus naps are your best friend. While trying to fit everything in, we tend to have very late nights and very early mornings. Falling asleep in session is no fun and you miss out on some awesome stuff! Another suggestion: Don’t stay up to watch all eighteen innings of the World Series game.

3.Spend time in the Expo

Free stuff and cool stuff. Enough said.

4.Talk to people!

People come from everywhere to attend National Convention. You can learn some new things, make new friends, and have people ask you to say boat and bag quite a lot. Apparently we have an accent, but that’s all good.

5.Soak it all in

The National Convention offers many opportunities we may never get to see again. From Garth Brooks to the President of the United States, National FFA Convention is truly one of a kind. Soak it in, enjoy it, and share your experiences with others. Your words may be the ones that make another member want to attend the convention.

Make convention yours. Use these tips as you wish and remember, its only 367 days until the 92nd National FFA Convention.

See you in the funny papers,
Alexis

What If?
Oct. 24, 2018

Amelia Hayden - President
Big Foot FFA Chapter
President

This past week, the state FFA officers and a few other members served as National Delegates. National FFA assigns each state an allotted number of student representatives they can bring to vote on the state’s behalf. During National FFA Convention, we meet and vote on official business, setting dues, and more.

Picture this: 475 FFA members, all from different states, with different SAEs, and different FFA experiences. You’re all seated by state and are in charge of making big decisions for the National FFA Organization. Unsurprisingly, it takes awhile to agree on what’s happening.

That is exactly what happened to our group of Wisconsin delegates this past week. When in the first meeting we didn’t accomplish all that we had hoped, we should have known that the full 475 delegates wouldn’t be super efficient for the rest of the week, either.

Three long, close to midnight, and passion-filled meetings, and we had finally finished all of the delegate business. “I move to adjourn this meeting!” someone shouted, as a whole bunch of hands shot up to second the motion. And then, it happened. Someone stood up, made some witty remark about Robert’s Rules of Order, and we started debating whether to adjourn the meeting. Positives and negatives, pros and cons, ups and downs were all brought up as the 475 of us debated whether we should end our meeting.

Why were we debating? We had accomplished all our business. We had discussed everything to make sure that we were diligent in our work. It was late. We wanted to go to bed so we could wake up for another great day of convention. And yet, we still debated it.

You see, sometimes we have all the reasons in the world to do something. Maybe it’s signing up for a contest, studying for classes, or spending time with the people we care about. What is something that you want to do? Are you still debating it? Because that’s the thing – we cannot just sit and debate about what we are going to go. We have to choose to do it. If you love it, do it. If you want it, do it.

We kept asking “What if we adjourn and something else needs to be talked about?” What if this happens? What if that happens? What if?

We often get so caught up in the “What ifs” of the world? But let’s ask this: what if we made our decision? What if we chose to do things wholeheartedly? What if we stopped debating?

Stop debating. Start choosing. And do it wholeheartedly.

See ya around,
Amelia
