As I watched it, chills went up my spine, tears formed in my eyes. You see, normally it is me supporting and encouraging others. I'm the one sending things like this, posting this on forums, cheering other people on. I started a forum specifically to support and encourage writers. I didn't learn to do this by watching others or because I got it from my family. I learned to do this, because I know how much it sucks to receive discouragement and to have to work on one's own to achieve one's dreams. I wish there were more people in the world like my friend who sent this link to me.
It's never too late to find and follow your dreams. Good luck.
