Alongside her countdown video, take a look as to why Ariel Terry says hope is one of the most vital pieces of a fresh start.
Hope is hard to keep believing in when you feel like your back is against the wall and you've done everything you could of possibly done. There has been days where I've wanted to just chuck the deuces and say to hell with it all.
Then I think about my purpose and my mission in life.
Breukelen Polished is more than a beauty product, it is a green beauty product to educate my community about the health flaws in the products we use daily. I've decided to keep the hope alive no matter how far the end goal may be because I know it is coming at some point.
Patience is not easy but it makes it all worthwhile. That's why I stay hopeful, because I know there is light at the end of the tunnel.
