My husband is one of my biggest influences. He keeps me so grounded and is incredibly supportive no matter what. He reminds me that I am beautiful, smart, and a hard worker and he never lets me forget it.
My mom has always been a huge example to me. She is incredible patient and strong! She has shown me to look for the good in everyone and that a simple conversation with no distractions can be truly powerful.
My mother in law Jaci is one of the strongest woman I know. She gives so effortlessly, always puts others first, and knows that God is watching over her.
My sisters remind me to stay young and naive. They remind me to chase my dreams, that I’ll be a good mom, and that baking cookies/watching Netflix with good company can clear my cloudy mind.
My friends are consistent and supportive. They remind me that my problems and concerns are normal and make me feel like I am a part of an exclusive fun. They keep me laughing and remind me that solitude is unhealthy.
My readers keep me going. Without their encouraging comments on posts, retweets, emails, etc. I wouldn’t feel like my blog or voice was important; but to them it is.
There are so many other influences in my life (other people, church, music, etc.) but these groups and individuals are my daily keystones and I am forever grateful for them in my life.
