Today, I'm giving thanks for people who expand my notion of myself, who hold me to high standards, who bring out the best in me, and who allow me to do the same for them. I love the way so many people I know strive, and therefore inspire me to strive also. We hold each other up with our work to climb higher ourselves, helping each other save our own lives, and sometimes those of others, in as many ways as we can. This process is so humanly imperfect and messy, and is the root of my best relationships. What a gift.
