Arianna's Random Thoughts
Weekly support & encouragement to #fuelpersistence on your journey!


We all have obstacles along our path but sometimes we may feel like we are the only one who is struggling. 

I truly believe you learn lessons everywhere, especially through interactions with others.  The reason I started to interview individuals for this series, was because I wanted to show others (and myself) that obstacles happen to everyone.  Since these encounters (i.e., hearing the stories of these individuals) have influenced my thoughts and behaviours, it is only fair that they be showcased.   I hope you’ll find their stories they have shared with me as inspiring as I do! Even though differences arise between us, we are all connected and share a similar journey (i.e., LIFE)! 

I created the interview questions and asked the individuals to be part of the “PROFILES OF PERSEVERANCE” series. Some of these individuals I have been connected with for a long time, while others I have met only electronically.  All of them have been a part of my journey. 

These interviews are unique and were done solely for to Arianna’s Random Thoughts. Regardless of their differences, all of these individuals have overcome obstacles and persevered through the difficulties they faced. Thank you to all those who chose to dig deep and share their “random thoughts” with us!

Feel free to peruse the stories of the individuals below, and to share your feedback and encouragement with them! Enjoy!
