WHO IS THE ONE PERSON YOU ADMIRE FOR HOW THEY LIVE THEIR LIFE? WHY?


My mother…

but, sadly it took her death for me to look fully at her life.

We will all have very different answers and all the answers are as they should be. I will share just a bit from my answer...

I understand that life is often that way, we take for granted the people we love the most. It's not because they are less important, at least not for me. I believe it is more because they become too familiar. And, like our immediate surroundings, we count on them to always be there. Until they are not.

This question allows me to look at the people that I admire and respect and evaluate if I am taking them or our relationship for granted. Or perhaps it's as simple as recognizing a person I admire by telling them so.
