  • I believe in you.

    In the beginning, before anything. In the end, after everything is built and finished.
    In moments when you forget who you are and what you ever wanted.

    And every second in between.

    I’m going to push you until you hate me, because I know there’s no finish line -anywhere.

    And when you think you’ve reached it or just don’t want to (you fill in the blank here) anymore, I’ll help you remember what it felt like for the very first time and what all of the work is really for.
