Day 04: Write About Someone Who Inspires You

For Day 04 of my 30-Day Writing Challenge, I was asked to Write About Someone Who Inspires You. It didn’t even take me 5 seconds to think of that one person. Of course, my biggest inspiration is my Nanay (mom). It’s always been her.

Nanay and Ken

My mother was adopted by a couple who had a hard time conceiving their own child. My grandparents were rich, and you could even say that my mother was extremely lucky to land a family like that. She grew up with a silver spoon in her mouth. You would think that that kind of upbringing would spoil her and make her a terrible mother.

She married my dad, who came from a humble family. My mom moved out of her parents’ house when she got pregnant with my sister. She and my dad led a simple life. In stories like these, you would expect that they guy would do everything in his power to provide for his family, but nope, this story doesn’t go that way. My dad was/is lazy as fuck. He stopped working when he got into an accident that made him blind in one eye. Since then he has stopped working. For the 28 years I’ve been alive, I have never seen him work to provide for our family.

My mother did everything by herself. She stood both as our mother and our father. She has successfully sent my sister and I into private primary and secondary schools. She got us into college, and she was able to finance my costly culinary education.

She is my inspiration to become successful in life. I wanted to make sure I can repay her for everything she has done for me and my sister. I may have lost my way recently, but I know deep inside my heart that I’m meant to do great things. Things that would surely make my mother proud!

    Great! I only have to talk about this with my folks from university.
    They’d be interested as we’ve discussed it these days and yes
    it proved that nobody’s confident concerning the
    subject. http://bit.ly/2jwTvWu
