The Biggest Influence in My Life

Who has been the biggest influence in my life?
I realize that it might be traditional or should I say a bit conventional, but I have to say that my mother, Dorothy has most definitely been the biggest influence to my life. She has always taught me to be who I am and not to pretend to be someone I am not. Even when I have made decisions in the course of my life that she has not necessarily agreed with she always accepts me in spite of those decisions. What kind of impact did she make to my life?

She has taught me how to be kind and loving but not to allow others to take my caring and kindness for weakness. She has also taught me to dream big and do everything within my power to make those dreams a reality. What kind of person is she?

My mother is the kind of person that anyone can look up to and say I would like to be like that. She could be described as a short quite round older bi-racial lady with always very short and thin blonde hair. She usually only wears old worn out cut off sweat pants and a t-shirt. Although to me she is beautiful, she is not what most people would describe as attractive. She is the kind hearted, caring and loving person that she has taught me to become. She is strong willed, hard working and very dedicated to Jesus Christ, as well as her family. Do I feel that she inspires others as much as she has me?

I don’t feel that she inspires others, I know that she does. She is a great speaker and teacher with a passion to teach others what she feels life is truly about, and I know that her meaning of life is a successful and inspirational way of life.
