My experiences with "All Shook Up" have given me the opportunity to spend time with some stellar individuals substantially younger than myself.
This group inspires me. Their eyes and actions are filled with hope, light, dreams, faith, dedication, passion...the list goes on.
One of the biggest inspirations they give me? All of them, yes, even the one who broke his hand in a fight and did not find this a strange occurrence, tell me they love me daily. And I hear them all telling each other this daily. What a great example they are to me and how much they have opened my eyes and heart.
I need not let the harsh experiences in my life impact my relationships with the good ones.
I need to let my friends know I love them more often and have no shame in using those three simple words.
I love you.
