Today for the 30-day Writing Challenge I’m supposed to write about someone who inspires me. It was pretty hard to decide who to write about because I am lucky to have many people who inspire me professionally and personally. The past couple years have been a pretty big for me in terms of personal growth and I have one friend in particular who has inspired me throughout my journey.
Brook is an incredibly hard worker and has a heart of gold. Despite whatever challenges come her way, she always has such a positive outlook on life. She puts her heart and soul into her job and her personal life; she would do anything for anybody.Brook inspires me to be a better version of myself. She has encouraged me to look past what other people think (or what I think they think) which has helped me accept who I am and to recognize all the amazing things I have to share with the world. She has this way about her that allows me to open up to her about everything and she knows things about me that very few people know. I show my vulnerability to her without fear of judgement.
Brook sends me motivational and thought-provoking quotes and the most amazingly supportive and beautiful texts that have made me cry. She reminds me that I am brave, independent and embracing life. I strive to make her proud simply because she inspires me and in doing so, she has also helped me recognize the importance of being proud of myself.
Brook challenges me to grow. She encourages me to set goals, to try new things and to continue becoming the best version of ME. We’ve laughed and we’ve cried. We’ve shared dreams and fears and I know she will continue to be an inspirational force as I continue along on my journey. Brook truly is like a big sister to me I look up to her more than she probably realizes. ❤
