"Rarely was I focused on the quality rather than the quantity because I was trying to make the most people happy, trying to say 'yes' to as many things as possible - over extending myself, over extending my family. My poor family didn’t get the best of me. They got the last little chopped up slivers that were left over. By allowing myself to focus on those few things - the quality for sure is much better." - Alana Dawson
