Before reading my story, watch this video of how one uncle's gift spurred on a child's dream. Who inspires you to fulfill your dreams?
I have this amazing dream and passion to be a writer. It is what I have always wanted to do, but just never stepped out and started doing it — until this year. It has taken me so long to actually get myself in gear and start writing.
I was always afraid of not having a support system, or that our family would suffer if I quit my job and did the only thing that I felt was worthy of pursuing.
But you see — I have this wonderul person behind me, spurring me on, encouraging me to go just go for it and pursue my passions and my dreams. He has believed with me that I can do this, he has prayed with me, and all the while, he has been in my corner, cheering me on with each chapter that I write.
That amazing person is my husband.
He pretty much is the best cheerleader I have ever had — he and my kids. There is nothing like having your kids and your husband stand behind your dreams, inspiring you to complete them with everything in you.
Keep Good Going
Who in your family inspires you? CHeck out this video called My Uncle's Gift. The “My Uncle’s Gift” video tells the story of how a young boy's dream to be a filmmaker was inspired by a gift from his uncle.
About Keep Going Good
Keep Good Going is about the idea of perpetuating the personal good that positively affects everyone in your life (your family). It’s the good you want to pass onto others you care about—in big or small ways—because you know how it can positively shape their life experiences. From a product perspective, New York Life enables you to continue the good in your life by providing life insurance and other financial products so that your children, spouse, etc. can flourish.
The Keep Good Going Life Lessons are welcome nuggets of wisdom and insight that are derived from life experiences. They are often simple, but always profound because they touch on the truths that hold life together. They are personal (not social or community) good, about you and those close to you. They are communicative of the good that continues in your personal life, and always tie back to New York Life and the products and services they provide.
