To believe YOU CAN strengthens every fiber of your being. To believe YOU ARE WORTHY humbles your core. BUT to be BELIEVED IN creates endless possibilities.
I can’t help but wonder who our children would be if everyone believed in them. If every teacher, coach, parent, and community member believed in every child. Yes, every child. Not just the “good” ones. Not just the easy ones. Not just the naturally talented or goal driven. Not just the ones that are independent and pursue life with ease. Not just the ones with the best attitude or demeanor. Not just the ones with the solid foundation.
I watch as teachers pin students when they are being inducted into an Honor Society. That teacher was chosen because they made that child feel special… believed in. They made an impact that lasted beyond 180 days of school. What if every child felt that way… or better yet, what if every teacher made every child feel that way?
I watch as coaches cheer on players, help them to overcome mistakes, brush off tough games, and instill confidence. That coach made a difference because they made that child feel special… believed in. What if every player felt that way… or better yet, what if every coach made every player feel that way?
I watch the community member that takes time to listen to a child. To remind them they are visible. To give them a family beyond the four walls of their home. To be seen… believed in. What if…
Are you the one who believes in every child? Are you the teacher they need in their life? The coach? The parent?
YOU ARE MAKING AN IMPACT on EVERY child… it’s up to you whether it is positive or negative.
Oh, the endless possibilities in believing!
