avestylesTo be able to see potential in the most depleted moments of life is a gift I was given from God through abuse - through ugly, ugly things. While words whittled me down to a stump and most days I thought I was the dumbest ugliest person on the planet, I protected my mind and heart by finding rest and comfort in my room while entertaining dreams of being a famous singer, model or fashion designer. My dreams and my ability to hope and believe that I could be anything got me through the ugly (well, that and years of counseling and God). And I say this because we need you dreamers to stand up, believe and create in the midst of all the skepticism, division and ugly right now. If you don't dream for yourself and our country who will? We dreamers are the ones that can champion hope and disassociate from the chaos, and by doing that we will show others how to believe. No one believed in me, but it never stopped me believing in myself. #hope #dream #quietthescoffers
