Drew's Words of Wisdom:
RTLO - Rise To Lift Others
It's no secret, making it though sometimes takes a village. Sometimes it's a just little tribe, and sometimes it's a big 'ol city, but we've all been there. At some point we all need a hand, or a word, or nudge to get us on a better course.
So who's in your village? Do you have people around you can call in the middle of the night? That would drop anything if needed? That can tell you the truth, even if it's uncomfortable. At HPA we get a lot of athletes that brand new to town, and we get to be their first village. The first people they meet. And a place to plug in. Thanks for being there, and rising to lift each other up!
