A writer friend recently shared with me her goal to find an agent. It occurred to me that we all need "agents," for what is an agent but an advocate, a cheerleader, someone who is in our corner.
I've been fortunate enough to have many cheerleaders in my life: my husband, my sister, my parents, my friends. And I hope I have been a cheerleader for them. I don't always do as good a job as I'd like, but I keep trying.
Who are your agents, your cheerleaders? I hope you have many. I hope you have people who make you feel special, who make you feel that you're the most important person in the world, if only for a moment.
This I know for sure: we all need cheerleaders in our lives.
