“All I would say is that everyone has a different story to tell and that definitely the sky is not the limit my love you can do anything so long as you have got the capabilities and if its in your reach. Keep going.
“Let us all embrace every little thing that we have in life because there is more to life than just mopping around and being sad about everything, brighten up your face and be high on that gratitude game. You are someone’s star, keep shining,” encouraged Tuntu.
