I believe that my whole life would not have been the same without the impact and investment that people have tried to put into my life. As a matter of fact, my entire life can be summed up to mean a life inspired and motivated by people that surround me. I am a country visited by hundreds and five of those visitors created an impact in me. Having mentioned the idea of visitors, represented by special people in my life, I have to admit that there are five visitors that visited my country. The first visitor that I truly treasure came from the planet Love, and is my husband, Allan. He is the one that has acted as a foundation to some of the good things that I have experienced in life so far. The second visitor, who came from the planet Care, is my dad, Miguel. My dad has acted as my role model for many years because of his sense of determination and positivity in life. Third, was a visitor sent from God, and was my daughter Miliani. I consider my daughter a gift from God. She is my only girl-child in the house and has a personality that is so amazing to look at. The forth visitor came from the planet Confidant and is my Aunt, Sonia. My aunt has been a friend and has acted as my confidant for a long time. The fifth visitor came from the planet Inspiration and is my Ex-boss, Vincent. I admire the personality of Vincent and his attitude towards life. He has often challenged my reasoning ability and my general attitude towards life. I have learnt how to set targets in life and work towards achieving them through him. The following is a brief summary of the nature and characteristics of the above heroes in my life.
First, my husband Allan has been so instrumental in my life. He is an employee in the US Armed Forces. He amazes me with his constant artier of Army clothes every morning as he lives for work. For the twenty years we have been married, Allan has acted as a true friend, the father of the three kids God has given us and a true lover to me. In all the good and bad times we have had together in the course of marriage, Allan has proven to be dependable upon. My decision to marry him is one I will never regret in my life. I am proud of him as a symbol of protection to me and our children. He is also charming and funny as at times he smells sweat and yet some other times he smells perfume. The second person is my dad, Miguel. The personality of my dad has always amazed me. He is partly bald head with no hair at the front of his head, with a very deep voice. He has a car that is always in a mess and is full of tools. My dad is often either barefooted or in sandals while at home. He is a fan of watching movies. I am so fond of him because of his protective nature and support that he has constantly showed us.
The third person is my daughter, Miliani. As the only girl in the house out of out three children, Miliani is so sweet. She is skinny and has a tendency of only wearing pants or shorts. She hates dresses- something that makes us fight always. Miliani loves reading and is always hard-working. She loves eating candy and is always singing. Nevertheless, at times, Miliani can act silly by her actions. I am so inclined to my daughter because she resembles me physically and tends to think like me. The fourth person is my Aunt, Sonia. Physically short, Sonia has a general nature of being so quiet but always keeps a smile in her face which inspires me a lot. She is hard-working as she is always cleaning, and loves sewing. Sonia also likes doing puzzles often. I cannot forget about the support she has given me this year especially during the time my husband was away to work in Iraq. Sonia is a great woman.
Lastly, my Ex-boss has been such as source of inspiration to me. He has a distinct physical nature of having gray hair at the front of his head only. He prefers wearing shorts most of the time with his hands fully in his pockets. He is a successful businessman having been able to establish a wholesale/retail story. I am generally sensitive to smell and because he loves saving energy, his clothes never dry well making him at times to smell garlic at certain times and sour lemon at other times. He is concerned about personal development as he often teaches about business and how an individual can become a better person in life. He also likes teaching about some of the principles of becoming rich, raising children in the right ways as well as metamorphosis of life in general. Having been close to him has helped to shape my self-esteem and boosted by ambition in life.
In conclusion, it is important to understand that it is important to be visited by special and precious people. This is because they will always impact your life in various ways and help you move from one point in life to another. Nurturing good relationship with people around us is therefore important always (Levinger, 315).
