Someone, somewhere, right now, needs to read your words

Someone, somewhere, right now needs to read your words, your gift.Encouragement from a frient Someone, somewhere, right now needs to know that even if the words come out all wrong, they came out anyway.

They need to know that someone transcended their own insecurities, excuses and reluctance.

Someone, somewhere, right now needs to know that because you write you become closer to the person you were intended to be, giving hope to those of us who have yet to find out voice, our vessel …

Won’t you lend us your courage, and write?

(From my friend Jason, in a note sent along with a box of soup when I was sick with the flu.)

If you are embarking on any endeavor that steers you away from the mainstream, you need people on the sidelines, people who love you and believe in you, cheering you on. Find them, keep them in your sights, and listen to the good things they say. It will make all the difference in the world.
