Occasionally quotes flow through my Instagraph account that speak to me. This was such a quote.
I am not always the most dedicated person. I have a tendency to laziness that is amazing. I tend to lose interest easily, especially when I am struggling at accomplishing something.
And yet, there are people that believe in me. People that believe in a better me than I think I actually am. People that have given of themselves - be it time, be it talent, be it support - because they believe the see something in me. Something that sometimes I claim I do not see.
I had never thought of this so clearly before. But strikes a chord in me. Just like giving a gift to someone that does not care insults the giver, so does my lack of dedication - in all of its forms - insult those that have seen and invested in me.
It is a humbling - and purifying - thought.
