“It’s amazing how far you are willing to go when someone believes in you.” – Katie Kacvinsky, First Comes Love
You know, I had never heard this quote until today, and it actually brought tears to my eyes. I don’t think I ever realized how much I owe my successes to others. I was so lucky to be born to such amazing parents that ALWAYS believed in me, to grandparents that did the same, to have teachers that reminded me daily of their belief and to be surrounded by the most amazing friends throughout my life so far that also offer the same support. It’s one thing to believe in yourself but knowing that you have others that believe in you just as much as you believe in yourself, and especially when maybe you have days that you don’t believe in yourself, that is truly special.
To all of you that have believed and me and still believe in me, thank you for helping me to succeed and to continue to chase my dreams. I wouldn’t be anywhere I am in my life today without you and I need you to know that I am aware of this.
I’m worried that many of you in my life may not know that I feel the same about you. So here is a reminder,…I believe in all of you that have crossed my path. If you ever lose that personal believe and are finding it hard to move forward, please, call me. I’d be happy to let you know how amazing I think you are and that I’m here for you to believe in you when you can’t find belief in yourself. Remember to remind those around you of this and try to even tell others that you may not know as well, especially children, they need to hear this more than the rest of us I think. We may think others know how we feel, but it’s so nice to be reminded.
