I have decided that for me writing a book is actually an extensive process that includes the collaboration and support of your friends and family. I have spent many nights awake troubling over pieces of my stories and the characters within them. I have backed myself into corners, and I have missed important pieces of my own puzzles from time to time. It is in these moments that my support network has been invaluable to me.
Sometimes it is only through the eyes of someone who knows us well that we can see the whole picture within our imagination or the future possibilities before us. I know that the people who believe in me the most have always been there to keep me moving forward with purpose. Without the input and direction these people offer me, my first book would have never made it past the images and ideas in my head. It would all would have been a dream unrealized, but now it is becoming a dream come true. Having people you trust, that lift you up to achieve your dreams is one of life’s greatest treasures. No matter your career choice, no matter your passion, surround yourselves with these people, appreciate them, love them for who they are, and learn how to best use their positive contributions to your life.
