I think we all know at this point that no matter where you are in life, whether writing a book, preparing for publication, starting a new job, or just trying to make it through the day, you need a team in your corner--a group of people who love you and have your best interest in mind.
The size of your support team can fluctuate over time or even change from one face to another. The best team members are the ones who stay with you at your worst and hardest, though. They're the ones who will really have your back.
The members on my team have always included my parents and sisters. Recently, I added a husband and two sons to it. And very close friends have come and gone and come again, adding their own sweetness and support. These are the people who have helped me become the person I am today. Sometimes my team seemed sparse, and even though my family was always there for me, I was too deep into sadness to tell. Other times I thought I would burst at the seams with the fullness of my support team and their overwhelming love.
So what does your support team look like today? Is it full and bursting with friends and family? Or is it fickle and fading away?
