So, Day 4 of the challenge asks me to write about someone who inspires me. This one is also hard for me. I’ve never really looked up to people. I can’t think of a time when I looked at someone and thought “I want to be more like them.” I have aspired, and failed, to be the type of person people would look at and think “I want to be more like him.” While I don;t have a specific person in mind, there are certain thing about people I wish I had.
I see people who are comfortable in front of a crowd and wish I could be that way. I want to be like the people who can talk to anyone and are good at mingling at social events. I want to be like the people who can ace a job interview. I want to be more like my friends who find time to go out and do fun things after work and on the weekends. I want to be more like the people who volunteer their time to help others. I guess it all boils down to “I want to be more like the best part of all the people I know”. So, I guess the answer to the question of “who inspires me” is “all of you.”
