I have amazingly talented friends. Seriously. Talented.

Insightful photographers.

Ridiculously intelligent.

Bilingual wonders.

Wonderful musicians.

Profound and thought provoking writers.

Amazingly athletic.

Unfailingly compassionate.

Being surrounded by people who have these amazing gifts makes me want to be better. Not 'better' at anything specific, just better. Better at everything I do in life. By using the gifts that God has given them, they have unwittingly challenged me to be a better version of myself.

I've never been someone that has been really talented at any one thing (I'm a fabulous parallel parker and I have nice handwriting, that about sums it up) but I've always loved enjoying the talents of my friends. So thank you. Thank you to all of you who have the tenacity to nurture your talents and the courage to share them with others.
