When she smiled at me for the first time, my stomach twisted and something rushed up into my throat that made me feel like I was choking. I blinked and realised my eyes were wet. Not the emotion I was hoping for.

They say that you should do one thing each day that scares you. I couldn’t agree more. Or as I like to say, if not scares you, challenges you.
