Stephen Covey, author of the 7 Habits, has a fascinating book on trust.

He talks about how important trust in our society as a whole, in our relationships, and in our lives—it drives our sense of self in a way.

Trust is one of the most powerful forms of motivation and inspiration. People want to be trusted. They respond to trust. They thrive on trust.


It is so true. We want to trust each other, and we want to be trusted in return. 

I thrive on your trust. I could not be in business without it.  For example, during the height of the pandemic, you purchased project kits, sight unseen, that I put together especially for you.  You trusted me to choose a something appropriate for your skill level, a yarn that would was right for that projects, and what colors that I thought would compliment your complexion.  Every interaction is an act of trust. Every newsletter you open, every event you attend, every purchase you make.  

When I think about the trust you put in me, and I am deeply and profoundly honored. It might sound silly, but I get a little emotional just writing about it. Your trust is that important to me--it's what motivates me every single day. 

There’s a ton of stuff in Covey’s book that I want to talk about, but for today. I simply want to acknowledge the trust you put in me, thank you for the gift of that trust, and let you know that I will always strive to be worthy of it.

Hugs and love,
Ellen.
