People inspire you or they drain you- pick them wisely. -Hans F. Hansen
You know who I’m talking about.
They’re the ones you turn to when no one gets what you’re trying to say.
The ones who have your back when someone screws you over or if you hit hard times.
The ones that make you laugh until your sides hurt and you can’t breathe, but you have to keep laughing because they’re so damn funny.
The ones who can read your face and then read your mind like a scary psychic, only it’s not scary. It’s awesome.
The ones who challenge you to push yourself a bit further than yesterday without ever making you feel like a loser because you haven’t quite reached your goals yet.
The ones who let you go on and on about the same crisis that’s kept you in the dumps for awhile and know when to just listen and and when it’s time to intervene.
The ones who make it okay to let out your full crazy- you know, the little peccadilloes you keep hidden from the general public- without judgement. In fact, they let their freak flags fly too.
The ones you don’t have ever have to explain yourself to because they know you well enough to understand who you are deep down and ultimately what you need.
The ones you trust and love, and more importantly, who trust and love you. As is.
Yeah, those guys.
To all my ones who’ve been there for me through it all; traveling around the world, frat parties, dancing in store windows, career changes, breaking lifting records, tearful confessions, breakups to makeups to breakups again, running away, family fights, and all of the firsts:
You’re the ones that make all of this worth it.
Who are your positive influences?
What are you thankful for this week?
