Yes, I’m hard-headed. It’s my understanding of how southern women are supposed to be. My daddy was the one who could tell me so. Since I grew up on a farm, my thoughtless choices could spell disaster. Daddy always instinctively knew those times when he needed to say, “this is not one of those times where you figure it out as you go.

Who do you trust? Who trusts you? Keeping these people in your inner circle can often provide you with invaluable perspective and will certainly give you the compass points that you will not have on some days. Your coach will be this for you.
