Are You Sure You Want to Do This?

I have this distinct memory that keeps coming to my mind lately. A couple summers back, I was with a boy I know, and I was about to do something I would have regretted. He looked at me with concern but without judgment and said, "Liz. Are you sure you want to do this?" And I stopped. And I thought about it. And I didn't. I don't know if I ever told him what a profound impact that has had on me or how many times I've thought about it, so I'm telling you. There is something to be said for having people around me who keep me grounded and remind me of who I am or who I want to be when I've lost sight of it. If you are or have been one of those people, I salute you. Thanks for keeping future Liz on track.
