You are only a burden to others and yourself when you lose your resolve, so you must never lose it. I got my key and wore it ever day for 2 months to remind me. A month ago I had someone in mind I wanted to give it to, but I kept it a little longer because I grew attached to it. I did finally send it to her. She was a friend that decided to make a fresh start in a new city so she planned, packed up and moved 9 months later. She had been through a few ordeals recently. She was a person that people gravitated towards to, but had a a string of bad luck the past few years. I was proud of her when i saw the fire in her eyes when we said our goodbyes. I don’t think she’ll lose her resolve, but I do know there are times it comes into question or doubt. So this key is a little reminder never to lose it.
