where we came from

Look back on your life. Who made you the person your are today? There are so many people out there that have impacted me in a way that I will be forever changed. There are so many people how have come at just the right time and lifted me up when I didn’t even know I needed it.

Life if relationships and how we navigate those relationships. Take a minute, take 30 minutes and tell those people they made you. Send a Facebook message to them saying “hey I’ve never told you this but…” We work with and want to change youth but lets not forget we were one once too. And once someone took the time to care for us and took the time to show us that we mattered. They shared some knowledge, some time, some love, some food, some space.

So often the work that we do is not seen or even validated. Go back and validate all the hours of the people who made you.
