Here’s to the people who terrify me:
The ones who wake up at five each morning, day after day, no matter what happens,
The ones who go out for their morning runs, day after day, no matter what the weather is like,
The ones who begin their days with their Yoga routine, day after day, no matter how tired they feel,
The ones who push themselves at work a little bit more, day after day, no matter how much impossible progress they’ve already made,
The ones who spend an hour learning something, day after day, no matter how many times people tell them they’re so good at so many things,
The ones whose fierce kindness never wavers, day after day, no matter how many times people let them down,
The ones who refuse to quit, day after day, no matter how many reasons life gives them to surrender:
You terrify me—
With your unwavering determination that breaks anything life throws at you.
You stop me in my tracks every single time I look at you—
With your extraordinary strength of resolve that does not have a parallel.
You inspire me—
There’s nothing I want but to learn to be you.
