The SITS Girls have given us some writing prompts for post ideas for the month of July. We thought it would be fun to give them a try. After all, we’re all about sharing simply sharing our life with you. I hope you enjoy going a long for the ride this month with us. You can check out the rest of them under the SITSGirls prompts section of the blog.
“Who do you consider a hero?”
My answer would have to be Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. These two men are my heroes because they have both went to great extremes to prove their inventions were worth doing. When they believed in something they latched onto it and went to full extremes to prove or disprove it.
I have always been of the same type of mindset in many ways. When I know I’m right, it takes a lot to prove to me that I’m wrong.
Crystal and I have debates on many things just to have the debates. In fact, when we were dating we would be in the middle of a heated debate and her friends would think we were fighting. We’d both bust out laughing and reassure her friends we weren’t fighting, but rather having a heated discussion. Of course, her friends would express that they would hate to see us fight. They were right to feel that way because when we do fight it’s combustible to say the least.
I believe in the power of standing behind what you believe in even if everyone else is totally against your beliefs. That saying, “you stand for something or you fall for everything” holds a lot of value in my book.
I also believe that we are the only ones who can really determine what our lives are going to be like. I’ve told Crystal many years ago that she needed to quit pleasing others and spend more time pursuing what she wanted out of her life. I believe she’s finally starting to listen to that advice a bit more, but I hope that she will pursue her passions more with each passing day.
Who is your hero in your life? How do they inspire you?
