GGS Spotlight: Angel Stone

May, 17 GGS GGS Spotlight

Age: Dirty 30’s
Location: Washington, D.C.

What does being a GGS mean to you?
Being a GGS means:

  • Accepting your fears then crushing them.
  • Letting your light shine. And, surrounding yourself with other shiny lights.
  • Forgiving yourself. Missing a workout or eating a cupcake isn’t the problem. Negative self-talk is.
  • Celebrating your strengths. If you’re funny, make people laugh. If you’re disciplined, inspire consistency in others. If you’re a writer, seduce me with your ability to use a semi-colon.
