Whatever you love doing, keep doing it. Keep going. Especially when it’s difficult or when others expect you to give up. Don’t. Find someone who will encourage you. Someone who will remind you why you started in the first place. I wouldn’t be where I am today without this guy. Thank you, Michael, for always being beside me, behind me, and in front of me. Supporting me, lifting me up, leading me. Reminding me why I do this and why I keep going.

What is it that brings you joy? The thing that makes your heart light up and come alive? Maybe it’s photography, maybe it’s helping others, teaching kids, creating safe places for friends to be heard, loved and cared for. Find it and make time for it. Then surround yourself with people who push you towards your dreams, your goals. Pray about it. Ask the Lord to bring those people into your life.

Who is that person in your life who won’t let you quit? Tell them today how much they mean to you. Then go and be that person for someone else.

“A generous person will prosper;¬†whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25
