Day 4, WC

Write about someone who inspires you.

The are several people in my life that inspire me in different ways. My parents inspire me, my brothers inspire me, my wife, my daughter, and even my boss inspires me. I guess in what context do I wanna write about those that inspire me.

My parents inspire me to be the best I can be all the time. In ways to be a better person, in general,  and to be a better father and husband to my little family. They have always been there for me, through any and everything I’ve had to go through.

My oldest brother inspires me to never give up and to try my hardest at anything I want to accomplish. He teaches me to be humbly successful in all that I do, and to push forward even if I fail. My middle brother inspires me to be resourceful and prepared for just about anything that might come along. Both of them showed me what it means to be a great father and continue to grow themselves each and every day. 

My wife inspires me to do the things I’m passionate about and pushes me to do them. For example, this Writing Challenge was her idea for me to do. She also inspires me to always be a great father and husband, by staying strong through everything we go through. Whether it be my surgery, as of recently, or our family’s income. She is always there to brighten the mood and is a wonderful role model for our daughter.

Speaking of our daughter, Belle inspires me to hold on to my imagination and wonder. The way she looks at things is so inspiring as if everything is so special in its own way, which it is. Her laughter and smile can warm any heart, and she is always so happy. She inspires me to not overthink and to take whatever life throws at you and continue on with a smile and a laugh.

Lastly, my boss, inspires me to be a leader and a more responsible adult. He too is someone I look up to as he is a wonderful father and husband, who puts family first, and yet still manages to keep the store together. It takes more than just me to get through life or even just the day. I have a better understanding of people, from him, and have gained confidence in my communication with others. 

There are several people in my life that inspire me to be a better me. Not in a way that changes who I am, but to make me a better individual and person, in whole. I’ve gained a better understanding of the world, relationships, and the order of Business Development through each of these people. And like them, everyday is a learning experience that will and should never end.

Your top 3 pet peevs.

1) mismatch socks

I’m not really sure why it is, but it really drives me crazy. If I don’t notice them then it’s fine, but if pointed out or if totally noticeable then that’s all I think about. 

My niece likes to do it on purpose just because she knows it bothers me, and she thinks it’s funny. Gotta love her though.

2) people eating chips or anything crunchy in a silent room.

It’s actually any kind of loud eating. If there is other noise going on that drowns out the eating noise then it’s not a bother. However, once it goes silent and that’s all I hear it’s torture.

3) lack of common sense 

This is one of those things that’s just hard to find now a days, especially in politics. Annoying as it is, however, I still feel compassion for the less fortunate who lack such an important critical thinking aspect in life. I mean how do you live without it? 

Day 2, WC

Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot..

There are several things people have told me about myself that have made an impact on me, but if I had to chose just one. 

I have been told multiple times that I’m a spiritually strong person. Whether it be my compassion for others, my ability to see the best in people, or my willingness to help however I can. This has always been at the forefront of my mind.

I’m also trying to think of ways to help others through my writing, or just odd jobs on the Internet. I’m trying to incorporate my passion for knitting/crocheting and my spiritual abilities, ex prayer shawls and such. 

I’ve always enjoyed studying religion and spiritual practices, and have adopted a lot from Buddhism. I feel I have a lot to offer the world, I just need an outlet in which to spread my happiness. Writing is a great start in my opinion. 

I’ve also studied psychology, which is good in understanding people and how/why they feel certain ways. It also helps with raising my daughter, knowing the different developmental phases and seeing them at work is exciting and informative. 

So I guess that would be the thing that I remember the most from what others tell me about myself.

My wife has been trying to come up with ways to spend my time since my surgery, since I get bored real easily. So this Writing Challenge is one of the ways to occupy my time. Plus it gets me thinking of stuff to write about and I love writing. 


I have a brain tumor. At least, that is what they have told me. It’s been several weeks now, since I’ve come to this realization. However, as time creeps closer to the date set for my surgery, I can’t help but think that maybe it’s not as simple as a brain tumor, but maybe it might be something more sinister.

As I sat in the ER, I was joking with my mom. Maybe I have super powers, maybe I’m transforming into something or evolving into something. The answer that came from my mother was, “Well, I guess you arent gonna go home.” Then she laughed. Yet, funny as that sounded, I was, in fact, not going home that night.

After only several hours and a CT scan later, the ER doctor came in my room. He did not carry himself as nonchalantly as before, and the cheerful grin was reduced to a mere worried look. That is when he told us that this situation was more dire that he had originally thought.
