When people would ask me “Did you see that soccer game?” I would always say, “I have never watched a soccer game in my entire life.”

Let's Get Gutsy and Get Going. Together.

O.K. there is one other thing. I believe the movement must be forward in motion, or moving toward something, or the best…being pulled toward vs. pushed away.
