Writing Decisions: Rev It Up
Some people are just made to inspire. They have the voice, the enthusiasm, the spirit and the ability to make you believe.
My father has a lifelong friend and, well, their friendship story deserves its own post. But for this post I will say that every time I talk to this friend- I want to go out and conquer the world. I'm pretty sure if he walked around with me all of the time that I would own a company or a country or something equivalently cool and impressive.
He is somebody who has overcome a lot of obstacles in his life and has had a lot of success. He squeezes life like a lemon into his glass and enjoys every drop.
He is the wise mentor and I am the eager student. We talk writing. I don't do that enough. It is refreshing.
As we hung up the phone I thanked him for his kind words and and his support. He responded like he was my coach and I was running back onto the field after half time,
"You gotta rev it up! Rev it up!"
