Below is a list of five people who impacted/affected my life within the past five years. Something I walked away with while knowing them.
Chris Cameron—motivation for academic straight-A’s when motivation was grim.
Marilyn Rodriguez—acquired the ability of defense (not taking shit).
Rachel Bruce—learned to listen.
Mathew Solace—learned to love…not necessarily romantic love, but unselfish love.
Anthony Garcia—real devotion and patience…not necessarily a strong trait in myself, but something I’m working towards because of.
Notice how I didn’t mention my parents. It’s because they could only teach me the general nuts and bolts of living. The rest, you begin to learn when learning from those outside your parental region.
Well, that’s my list, but there’s always more to come now that I’m meeting new people (like Michael Duisenberg—still learning…). S’why I love meeting new people. You never know what you’re gonna learn about yourself.
Who added to your learning of life? You’ll be surprised when you take the time to think about it.
