Have you ever dreaded doing something but then once you did it, you felt

Evinda Lepins as she shares life lessons from her heart to yours.
“That’s a wrap!” James said when we had finished the final week of filming our
next trench. We were finished! We had filmed all eight segments. I was exhausted
