One of my homework assignments for this week’s Blogging Your Way Bootcamp was to write a post about somebody who inspires you. Whilst thinking about this assignment yesterday evening, many people sprung to mind: the Paralympians and Olympians from London 2012; police forces from all over the country who freely gave their time to support their colleagues in Manchester last week at the funerals of the two women police officers who recently lost their lives; how the parents of April Jones, the missing girl from Wales, are managing to stay so strong in the face of such adversity. My list could go on and on. All these people are truly inspirational in different ways. However, the person who inspires me the most is The Domestic King. If you’ve been a reader of the blog since it’s launch in April, and read my Father’s Day post, this won’t come as much of a surprise!
The Domestic King inspires me in so many ways. He inspires me to try and be a kind, giving person like he is – nothing is ever too much trouble for The Domestic King. He inspires me to treat others as I might like to be treated. He inspires me to embrace my goals and dreams, and helps me believe that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. He inspires me to work hard – I haven’t met anybody else who has a work ethic like my Papa! He inspires me to live a healthy life style (anybody who has 7% body fat and can climb mountains like a 20 year old has to be inspirational right?). He inspires me to have grit and determination, when the devil on my shoulder is saying to give-in or stop. Quite simply he inspires me. Please don’t think The Domestic King is perfect; he isn’t. But he’s perfect to me.
I would love to hear who inspires you? Is it your parents? Is it a past teacher? A friend? A business leader? Please share in the comment section below.
With much love
The Domestic Princess
