As I’ve ventured into the “adult” world, I have learned to appreciate my dad even more. Chasing my dreams and figuring out how to structure my life successfully for myself presents its challenges. My dad has always been my biggest supporter, reminding me to conquer all the necessary details in college and before so I would have a foundation later. Today, I look to him when I need to remember I have more potential than I realize. He encourages me so matter-of-factly, making it known my talent will make my dreams possible. Yet he loves me enough to be happy for me if I were to choose not to pursue them any longer (though that won’t happen because I know there’s more for me because my dad has shown me that). With his support, I continue to progress with knowledge that I have what it takes to have the life I want.
