I'm also going to ask you to care--for yourself, for me, for them. I'm going to ask you to throw kindness in the air freely and deliberately, find human connections at the core of everything, and empathize deeply. I'm going to ask you to do more than you think you are capable of. And then even more.
In return, I promise to expect the same from myself as I do from you. I promise to do the big, scary, important things. I promise to read the books that matter to you and always, always read your words. I promise to care for you, me, and them and throw kindness in the air and find human connections every single day. I promise to empathize with you. I promise to do my best, sometimes fail, and try again. And then even more.
