I’ve always loved words, talking or writing it didn’t matter. My high school English teachers encouraged my gift for gab every time I gave a speech, but not so much when it came to my writing. So, I never listed creatively putting words together as one of my strengths.
Have you ever given up something you enjoyed because a teacher or parent failed to share your enthusiasm?
Maybe you dreamed of becoming a musician, an artist, a performer, an athlete, a designer, a business owner, a teacher, or ___________; you imagined a future that someone with influence discouraged.
And you wonder:
- What if I’d tried harder?
- What if I’d just gone for it anyway?
- What if I hadn’t given up?
