1. regard (an object, quality, or person) with respect or warm approval
Every kid have someone they admire as they grow up. There are certain people whom I admire up until now. Some of them may just pass by and some even have affected on the kind of person I am today. I’ve decided to write about it and dedicate it to each and every one of them.
Having spent my childhood in New Zealand, I have grown to love sports. Every single day at school we would be introduced to many different kind of sports. One of them was rugby. Ok, this is not a person but something that have given me a lesson in life. Rugby is a team sport but the feel of watching (or playing) it is completely different with other team sports like basketball or football (soccer). You don’t see rugby players fighting out in the field right? Most rugby players maybe enemies (opponents) in the field but when they step out (end of game) they could be like best friends. Maybe it’s just me but lessons I acquired from rugby were work hard, be honest (fair play) and keep fighting for your goals. Three lessons that could be applied to our daily lives

I’ve always loved listening to various kinds of songs. Ever since I met my husband (boyfriend back then) my taste in music kind of slightly changed. Nowadays I enjoy pop, classics or songs with slow music (other than children’s songs my big kid put on each and everyday). I don’t really have certain favorite groups, bands or even singer but there is this one Indonesian singer Glenn Fredly. He is known for his romantic love songs. He is the only singer that have stucked with me since the first time I heard his song. I admire him for his talent as a musician and how he takes notice of people less fortunate around Indonesia. Despite of negative gossips about him, he counts as one of the people I admire.

family parents have been very strict on setting up rules during my school years. Traditional and conventional parenting people would say. It made me become an introvert and I had closed personality towards my families. Then I met a guy who now happens to be my husband. Yes, I admire my husband because he has the will of a horse (metaphorically) and he had shown me the meaning of trust. Trusting and loving God. He has taught me about faith. He led me out of the box, out of my comfort zone.
In our younger days 😀
The last person I admire is someone who has taken care of me my whole life; my mother. She’s the kind of person who does everything on her own. A woman who dedicates her whole entire time for her husband and children (and grandchildren). I admire her patience at facing problems. Eventhough sometimes I think she stressed herself out, she always managed to get back on her feet and continue her days. Family
was is her top priority. She had taught me that patience and strenght are needed to face life.

Notice some of my words above are written in bold letters? Those are the values I got from the people (or things) I admire throughout my life. Above all I have God to admire because He had taught me real life lessons through things and people I came across.
So do you have someone you admire?
