Recently, in a Friday five post I wrote about a local band — a group of young guys who are so talented — that I genuinely enjoy. Would you believe they emailed me to thank me? I turned into such an old lady, telling my husband, “What a nice group of young men. Who says manners are dead? There’s hope for this generation yet!” It was seriously the encouragement I needed to keep writing.
There are so many people that inspire me, influence my passion, and encourage me every day, and most of the time, they aren’t people I physically interact with. They’re bloggers, artists, people making and doing good stuff and putting it out there for the world.
I’ve started reaching out to those people one at a time just so I can tell them, I appreciate their efforts, and it’s not going unnoticed.
