That would be my girls and the grandchildren.

My children, without a doubt. They keep me grounded just as they keep me reaching for the stars.

A few small (and not quite so small) humans.
And of course, Her Royal Cuteness.

The class that I started high school with. The first time in my life that I felt like I belonged somewhere.

My Dogs. They force you to be honest and authentic at all times. You can't fake it with them and they don't with you.

My physician, lol.

My wife and kids and people who need help. I've been told more than once that I would have made a good priest or psychiatrist. Who knew?

My wife. No doubts at all she gets the credit.
Because of her I have learnt to be comfortable with being me. I can accept my flaws and have the courage to try to be better.

That said, I will always hate doing the dishes. No matter how often I agree it will be one of my contributions to the household.

My wife and my kids. My baby sister. She's going to be 46 tomorrow. My oldest friend. We've been friends for 52 years.

Without question my children and grandchildren. My partner can bring out my best as well.

Me. And no, I am not arrogant, self-absorbed or anything similar. I try to embrace Stoicism. Ultimately, everything is up to how I think, which I can control. To be clear, I have great kids, had some great teachers and professors at the two best universities in the world (public and private), awesome relatives and siblings, all of it. I also had a horrific father, the kind people say "No wonder you are in prison poor guy." Except not. How I react is up to me. As it is with you. Others can walk with you, but not for you.

Others can only exemplify and inspire. It is still our responsibility to 'dredge-up' our best because of them.

My wife. She's about the oddest person I've ever known, has OCD and is pathologically incapable of keeping her feelings to herself; but she's also proactive, unwaveringly compassionate and scrupulously honest... The precise opposite of myself. I've gained a lot from trying to be more like her.

Or animals. When my horses got sick, all the vets told me that nothing could be done and I should put them down. So I fixed them by inventing a low carb diet and went all around the world teaching people how I did it. Got invited to a lot of academic conferences, wrote some book chapters, lectured at vet CE conferences, published in veterinary journals, with a BS in Crop/Soil science. Necessity is the mother of invention.

A couple of the great college professors I had and my sons!

Pretty much anyone.
Depends more on the situation/circumstances.

My sweetie! And it's not always easy, either...but, it's worth it.
