Wow. I’ve made a lot of videos in my time. But this one was the hardest video I have ever made.
This is my story. This is my Thirty-One journey. I’ve told this story at meetings before, but I’ve never publicly told anyone in this way or to this magnitude.
My life and my business are very good right now. I have very few complaints that I could justify at this moment in time. But it wasn’t always like that. I did not have a fairy tale life. My entire childhood could be summed up on a Jerry Springer episode actually. But I can honestly say that every hardship I encountered was a learning opportunity. Every set back in my life made me who I am today.
People ask me OFTEN…why I share so much with others. This video will tell you why. Because one lady, just ONE lady believed in me. And she changed my life forever. So my mission is to be that lady for someone else. My mission is to change as many lives as I possibly can, just like that social worker changed mine.
This is a 20 minute rambling video, warning you in advance. I cried. I don’t cry often. And I certainly try not to do it publicly. But I wanted you all to know me. The REAL me. Not the persona you see that has this wonderful fairytale life. I do now. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and my life is FULL of blessings. But it wasn’t always like that. I worked HARD to get where I am today. And I want everyone to know that YOU can have the same success as me. In whatever you pursue. You simply have to want it bad enough to stop telling yourself all the reasons why you CAN’T have something better. And believe in the one reason why you CAN.
Love you guys,
Melissa Fietsam, Ind. Senior Executive Director at Thirty-One Gifts
