Missing piece

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." ~ Albert Einstein. 

Think about it... nothing more really needs to be said...but let me encourage you to embrace who you are... no one else is you..and you can't be anyone else... could it be that you were meant to be you?  And maybe you are the missing piece!
