The overall message is to write your own story. We live our lives hearing lots of messages about ourselves. Who we are, what we're capable of, etc. You get to be YOU. You define who you want to be. "I use the example that I was told from a very young age that I was not athletic, I was a runt. I found out later in life that I'm an athlete in my own right. I may not ever win a gold medal, but I can get out there and play the game." Says Kelly!
Kelly tells funny stories about discovering her inner athlete. These stories have lessons;
• Don't tread water in life, you'll be exhausted and you won't move forward or backward.
• Encourage people and they will encourage you. Your biggest champion might be right next to you.
• Remember everything has a beginning, middle and end. You have to start at the beginning... even if it's humiliating.
