She believed she could, so she did.
The bracelet turned out to be a gift from the Red-haired Bestie, who always, always believes I can, even when I don't believe myself.
Everyone needs a friend (or 10) like that - a friend who stands behind you shouting, "You can do this," especially when you don't believe it yourself.
I'm one of the lucky ones. I have several friends, in addition to the Red-haired Bestie, who do that - who believe in me, and for me, even when (especially when) I'm struggling.
There have been lots of things in my life I haven't been sure I could do. There have been lots of things I haven't been able to do. There are lots of things I don't know that I'll be able to do.
But here's what I do know:
When you have people who love you, people who stand behind you, people who walk alongside you, people who believe in you...
You owe it to those people - and to yourself - to believe you can.
And to do the things.
