Those who Influenced Me....

Throughout my life, I have come in contact with many, many people who have influenced me. I wanted to do this post after I wrote them all letters, but I haven't gotten around to writing the letters yet. So, here I am going to list 10 people who have influenced me and a brief description of why. They will get a more detailed and personal letter from me at a later date. These are in no particular order.

  1. My Nanny. She passed away when I was 11 (her children will receive the letter) but she influenced me a lot. She showed me a lot of how a family should be. 
  2. My former bosses, Chuck and Debbie. We never saw eye to eye when I worked there, but when all was said and done, I learned a lot from them. Every boss I had after them was compared to them and I never had another boss that compared.
  3. My high school friend, Jemayne. He has published books. He has had a very successful natural weight loss journey. He is just a very inspiring person. 
  4. My Kids. They inspire and influence me to be the best me I can be every single day.
  5. My Granddaddy. He passed away in 2004 so my grandmother will receive his letter as well as her own. He had a month and a half long battle with pancreatic cancer. Yet, he stayed strong (at least in my presence).
  6. T.K. Leigh. She is an indie author that I joined the street team for back in Fall of 2013. She is an incredible person who tells me to never give up on any dream I have. 
  7. Alan G., my former bowling coach. I consider him to be another father figure in my life. 
  8. My high school best friends, Whitney and Angie Sue. They influenced me to just be me and never follow a crowd. 
  9. Benjamin Watson, TE for the New Orleans Saints. He speaks his opinion, even if it's an unpopular opinion. 
  10. My sister, Beth. She doesn't realize how much I looked up to her growing up.
