Question: In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank?
… My mum!
The best teacher I could ever ask for. Nothing compares to having her words of wisdom on my own doorstep! I have been asked where my morals stem from and they all stem from her. My mum has molded me into the person I am today, I couldn’t imagine doing anything without my mothers blessing.
She’s one of the reasons why I got my job, I was asked who inspired me and I said my mum did. My boss said my eyes lit up and I smiled from ear to ear as I spoke about her. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for her encouragement and guidance. I can’t thank her enough!
When I initially read today’s prompt, I felt as if I was having a mental block. I couldn’t think of a worst case scenario; in fact I wouldn’t allow myself to do so. Deep down I could probably think of something, but I refuse to go there! So instead I shall tell you about my day!
I felt like a tourist in my own city! I had a meeting to attend, I made sure I had more than enough time to get there. It was going well, until I asked Google Maps for assistance. I paced up and down the street following the directions given to me. I shortly realised I was lost! I asked a passerby for directions; he asked if I had a map, then he took a quick glance at it and told me to turn right.
There was no right! Was he directing me to walk right into a wall? I would have preferred if he had said he had no idea where it was! If you don’t know…you don’t know, it’s that simple!
The next person I approached admitted that she had never heard of the street. She directed me to her colleague; I could see he was in the middle of something, but he still offered to help. He thoroughly explained the route to me and made sure I was 100% certain of where I was going.
I am ever so grateful! I could have ended up being a little late, instead I was a little early just as I had planned!
