Madonna's Boldness

I whole heartily agree about the physical stamina can play a huge part in being successful in life. I know since I have started running and doing CrossFit my self confidence has grown immensely. I walk now with my head held high, and I have been told I have a "positive aura that radiates around me". People want to come up and talk to me and ask for my advice. I am able to creatively give advice. I also am a Interior Designer, but career came to a halt when I developed encephalitis in my right and left temporal lobes. Left me with a lack of memory and epilepsy. Since I started my physical regime of running and cross training my memory and creative juices starting flowing again. I am really wanting to start helping people with picking their furniture and fabrics for their house. Great read and thanks!
