I Looked Down And Held My Key
This past summer I had just turned 18 & I was going to visit my best friend in Germany..alone. I was nervous because I have never been out of the country before, I can't speak German, and I had to take connecting trains from the airport to my friend's hometown. My Aunt Jennifer surprised me on my birthday with a giving key. It had the word FEARLESS engraved in it. She told me the background story about the company and I thought it was really cool! So there I was about to take off on my way to Germany and I became very nervous. I looked down and held my key and reminded myself to be FEARLESS. I continued to occasionally hold my necklace when we would hit turbulence over the Atlantic. The key has taught me to be FEARLESS as I have started college, given numerous presentations in front of the class, and to be FEARLESS in life. I kept my eye out for someone to give it to, but I never felt the need to until one day at my Nana's. We were having Thanksgiving at my Nana's house when really bad weather hit. They shoved me along with the kids in the hallway and told us to stay there. There was a tornado warning. My sister, Mackenzie, has always been afraid of storms, but she was absolutely terrified this time. As I sat next to her and tried to calm her down, I realized she needed the key more than me. Mackenzie also deals with being scared of what people think of her. So this Christmas that is my gift for her, along with a note of my story and why I think it will help her. She will open it tomorrow morning and I'm very excited to see her reaction because she knows how much this key means to me. I'm very grateful for my Aunt Jeni giving me this key and for this company for making these keys.
