I was watching One Tree Hill awhile back for the 7th time and this quote just hit home with me. I know it sounds silly, but this is what I hope to accomplish one day with my writing. I know that I need a lot more practice and sometimes my stuff is not the greatest, but I wanted to say thanks to all of you who have encouraged me to keep going when all I wanted to do was give up writing and forget my dream of one day helping someone with my writing, either published or just sharing something I wrote with someone in need.
“I wanna help someone. I wanna reach to that girl or that boy who wakes up one day and feels like it’s not worth it any more. It’s like… I don’t need to be famous, and I don’t need all the money in the world. It’s not about that. It’s about that girl who’s having a horrible day, and she hears your song, and for five minutes there’s hope, ya know? It’s like for five minutes the world’s not such a scary place for her anymore. You ask what’s going to be enough? That would be enough. That would be more than enough.”
