I AM happy. Love is simple. It’s starts within. You become aware, gracious, patient and more understanding. You simply have to let yourself fall and have faith that they will be there to catch you. Everything will fall into place, everything will work out. Work hard. Believe unwaveringly, hope endures all things and faith never gives up. Love never gives up. Success is a state of mind! Don’t you ever loose sight of your dreams, remind yourself daily who you are, where you are going and have the courage to stand for what you have known and believed in since day one. Remember a goal without a solid plan, is only a wish. You have to make daily, consistent efforts and you have to do them in alignment with your gut! ...finding time is hard, finding a place of solitude even harder, but it is a must for every individual soul. Drown out the white noise and unhealthy patterns. In solitude there is healing. Listen to your heart. Sometimes in the absence of all the white noise we find the answers. Look into the distance and into the future. Visualize the tomorrow that you are going to build and begin to build that tomorrow! No excuses, growth is everything I desire. Peace, patience, true love and understanding is what I want to stand for. It’s not about perfect, it’s about effort, grit and grace. I wouldn’t have written the story any other way. It’s softened my heart, given me purpose and the story, it’s perfect, because it’s our story. • • • #mondaymood #staystrong #beepic #doepic #successandnothingless #peace #patience #sacrifices #HIS #biggerpicture #workharder #retraining #change #enjoytheclimb #blessed #celebrateyourstory #bestpartofme #inspo #driven #eyeontheprize #fitspo #goals #hardworkpaysoff #mindset #lifestyle #entrepreneur #motivated #fitfam #georgiatrails #womenempowerment A post shared by Rachael Ann Gliebe (@rachaelgliebe) on Jul 15, 2019 at 2:27pm PDT\nWebsite\nFrogtown Cellars\nDistance from Atlanta: 1 hour & 25 minutes\nPrice: Call to get your rate\nAddress: 700 Ridge Point Dr. Dahlonega, GA 30533\nWhy you should go: Frogtown Cellars is a wine estate that sits on 57-acres of land.
