n life many things and people hold value to us, when a child is brought into this world his/her parents lives are changed forever perhaps making it less theirs and more of their child. However nowadays children don’t realize that before their parents got the role of mom and dad, they had lives of their own. Quite frankly I think that children don’t have interest in their parents lives like their childhood, best moments in life and bucketlist things which still haven’t been fulfilled.Sitting here today in front of a man, filled with experiences and stories to tell.

In life people often look up to their role models for inspiration but thats not case for me. My father serves every aspect of inspiration in my life he shows me not give up, and strive for greatness. The quote "Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself." by Walter Anderson sums up my fathers life exactly despite having so many hardships instead of giving up he pulled through, showing that something that seems impossible could indeed be possible.
