My 4 AM

My 4 AM

Upon receiving the ESPY Icon Award in July of 2016, Kobe Bryant delivered a short, yet powerful acceptance that I've only recently heard.  Although it's been two weeks (or so), since his words touched my brain, the message has made an impression in my daily activities. 

We’re up here because of 4 a.m. We’re up here because of two-a-days or five-a-days. We’re up here because we had a dream and let nothing stand in our way. If anything tried to bring us down, we used it to make us stronger...
...there’s time for resting at the end, but for me that time is not now. ...I’m far from done. My next dream is to be honored one day for inspiring the next generation of athletes to have a dream, sacrifice for it and never, ever rest in the middle.
— Kobe Bryant

I must have read those words a dozen times; I listened to the speech a few more times than that. We have our own version of 4 am and our own goals.  In the short time I've known these words, I've tried to never rest in the middle.  I've made sacrifices and I will continue to make sacrifices. Life is about making choices.  

Tomorrow, I will choose 4 am again.
