Why I Keep Going: Jennifer Haley

I want to make an impact.

Every interaction, every conversation is an opportunity to leave your mark and touch someone’s life for the better. I believe that what you put out is what you get back and if you lead with a positive mentality and surround yourself with people who support you, love you and push you- then it’s hard to not live a full life. Setting a good example for my son is my driver.

The world is constantly changing and sometimes it’s too easy to see the negative that’s going on around us and feel overwhelmed by it. If we can make a difference in someone’s life by smiling at them, while raising the next generation to be kind and thoughtful, then we have made our impact on this world for the better. My favorite quote and guiding principal in my life: “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes” - Charles Swindoll
