"30 Days of Notice Period" - #7 - Guiding light
#7 A picture of someone/something that has made a big impact on you
All of us have idols right? People we look up to and aspire to be. We have all written essays in our middle school about our idols. I wrote one about APJ Abul Kalam, the Missile Man of India. I was fascinated by him. I didn't want to be like him though. As I grew older and some sense came into me, I realized that and my idol was not far from home. The person that I want to be in life, the person I wanted to be when I grew up wasn't any celebrity or scientist it was my own brother. I have admired my brother for about half my life now. I have seen him grow up in front of me, become the amazing man he is. Not saying he is perfect, but he is pretty close to as good as anyone can get. I know he has his flaws, but the kind of person he is, that is who I want to be for the most part.
I have always wanted to be like him, so much so that in my first year of college I wore his loose black band t-shirts all around. I copied his playlists and mirrored his opinions, basically tried to become a mini version of my brother. Over the years I have stopped copying him and have developed my own opinions about things, but I still look up to him time and again. I am a very stubborn person, and normally don't listen to a lot of people, at least not without reasoning things out with them. My brother is one person, who I trust blindly. I don't second guess him on most things and normally end up doing what he says.
We may fight a lot and have a lot of differences in opinions over things, but he is still my guiding light, will always be.
