Encourage, Don't Just Consume (short but sweet:)

It’s not hard to see that the world says that things are all about us. I know that for me, this has made me overlook the enormous impact that encouraging and supportive people have made in my life. From the time I was born into the most supportive family I’ve ever seen to meeting crazy encouraging friends when I moved to Nashville, these people have truly impacted my life a whole lot. Some of these people have spent years by my side helping me through tough situations and forcing me to believe in myself, and some of these people I’ve hardly known but they have uttered words that will stick in my mind forever.  

So really I just want to encourage you to go out and support your people today despite their imperfections. Be a boost of confidence into the life of someone who really needs it. And sometimes the people that need it the most, probably don’t look like they do from the outside. Be willing to open your mouth and say the kind and encouraging words that come to your mind. 

Just a few words at the right moment can make all the difference in someone’s life.

And endless thanks to all of you who have encouraged me to keep pursuing the things that I have on my heart!
