I love watching this video My Uncle’s Gift. It’s amazing how one small gift can inspire someone to live the life of their dreams. My own father inspired and continues to inspire me to live out my own dreams of being a professional writer but it wasn’t inspired with a gift… it was inspired with a lifetime of encouragement…. just like his own father gave him. And now that I have children of my own I’m carrying on the tradition!
Ever since I was a little girl my father has encouraged me to follow my dreams. One of those dreams was to be a professional writer. Even when I was too young to actually write I would tell everyone that I was going to be a writer and my dad would always tell me “well, then do it”! He now tells my daughters that they can reach their dreams!
Without my fathers’ constant encouragement to follow my dreams of being a writer I know I wouldn’t be where I am today… living my life long dream of encouraging others through my words.
Has there been someone in your life that has encouraged you to follow your dreams, or were you given a gift that jump-started your dreams? I’d love to hear about how you Keep Good Going!
