9/30 {10 influential people}


9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.



1. My Mom - My mom has gone through so much in just her life before being a mother it's crazy. She had a rough childhood but she pulled through. She got married and pregnant at 20 with me and 23 with my brother. My biological dad and her relationship wasn't always the best and even though it was going to be tough for her (and us) she did what she had to and got out of it. She got remarried and had my sisters. Has overcame so many obstacles and STILL is yet she has such a great attitude about it. She knows that she had to go through some of those other things so she could become a stronger woman/wife/mother. Everything my Mom does, she does for her kids. There are so many times growing up I remember my Mom going without so we could have that SOMETHING that we just HAD to HAVE! My Mom truly is amazing. 

2. Conrad - He encourages me to be a better person in so many different ways. He has amazing self control. He has taught me how to argue and disagree in a respectful way. I was brought up in a house where whoever had the loudest voice wins! 

3. My kids. I know this sounds crazy. But really they make me want to be the best mom that I can be. They are so forgiving still. So loving. No matter how upset I can be they still love me. No matter if I'm beaten down by my day they are there with loving arms. I want to make sure I'm always returning that unconditional love. Not just to them but to everyone. 




I only have 3 people. This really is a lot harder than I thought it would be.
