    The three things stressing me out are my boyfriend, the fact that my dad might only have a year left to live and preparing myself to be the best I can be during gymnastics season.

    I can only fix the stress of two. I can just decide to put my boyfriend and I’s differences aside and I can start conditioning for gymnastics season. My dad is out of my own control. I can only have the faith to know everything happens for a reason.
