The people I most admire are humble beings who are extremely gifted. I look up to them because they have faced extreme challenges and have overcome them, in my opinion, surprisingly well. They are my heroes.
My attraction to my heroes arises from curiosity. I often ask myself “How on earth did he or she survive that?” The answer is that these people are emotionally strong, positive and are extremely resilient.
Some have been abused, outcast, rejected, beaten, or neglected, yet they stand tall and what could have driven them to a life of desperation has turned them into very humble, loving, strong, empathetic, and grateful people. They may not have riches, but their life is rich with a thirst for life and living that makes whoever is by them want to join them and follow suit.
This is my tribe and these are my heroes.
