Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. – Babe Ruth
Let’s be honest… there are some days where I come home from work or school and I want to sit down with a glass of wine to drown my sorrows. My boyfriend has learned to have a nice big glass ready for me when I walk through his door (man, what a keeper I have!)
While I drink my wine, we sit down together and talk about our days. This time alone together is so special to us because our schedules are both so full. We take the time to unplug – no cell phones, tv, or distractions. It is the most relaxing part of my day. This quite time helps me gather my thoughts and reflect on my day.
Dustin has always been my number one supporter and my biggest fan. When I don’t believe in myself, he pulls me up by my big girls pants and gives me the motivation that I need. There are times when I feel like I can’t stand another day of school (HELLLOOOOO Senioritis), where I don’t think my work is good enough, where I feel utterly lost… but then I look up and there he is.
He’s my “coach”. He teaches me how to be a better person, to give 150%, and to keep going until I achieve my dreams. Dustin’s the one to hand me my bat and push me to go after that home run! Because of him, I have no fears and feel like I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
