My first Key was given to me by my mom in October of last year. She chose the word Believe as my word, and included in it was a card from her that said " David, I know times seem tough right now, but I want you to know that I will always believe in you, and I want you to never stop doing the same." Something so simple, yet the words along with the Giving Key were so powerful that it had me in tears before I even made it through the first sentence. She has always been there for me and never once told me that I couldn't do something that I put my mind to. I've got what seems to me, some insurmountable rocks to get over that have caused me to lose almost everyone in my life that mean the most to me. I was at my whit's end with it all and had no idea how I could even begin to start to become the man I know myself to be. Once I received the key and read the story behind the company and what they are all about, I found it to be a one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given. I wear it around my neck everyday and find myself turning to look at it whenever I feel like I'm slipping back into the mindset that I was in before. It has never failed to lift me back up to believe in myself and that I CAN and WILL make it through the hard times that make me stop believing that it's possible for me to make it through. It has saved me so many times since I was gifted this key that I've lost count. I have recently gotten one for the love of my life, whom I met shortly after receiving my key. I believed that I'd never meet someone that would or could mean this much to me, as it looked to be something that would never happen to me. I never stopped believing though. We just broke up last week, and I gave her the gift of her own key about a month ago, which she loves as well. I hope even though she had broken my heart that she will not look at the key as a gift from me but as something to help her remember what the meaning behind the key is. I will do the same for the key I have.
