Jean-Paul’s Quote: “In Life we do things, some we wish we had never done, some we wish we could replay a million times. But they all make us who we are, and in the end, they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them, we wouldn’t be the person we are. So just live. Make mistakes, have wonderful memories. But never ever second guess who you are, where you have been and most importantly where it is you are going….”
