You will soon meet the person you admire
Tonight me and my housemate ordered Chinese, which we tend to do far more than we actually should. But one thing we don't normally do is order a fortune cookie each as well. I have had fortune cookies before (who hasn't?) and I normally like the quotes you get inside. Tonight I don't really know what I was expecting but was a little taken aback by "You will soon meet the person you admire". Talk about being vague ancient chinese wisdom! However, I did let my mind ponder this notion that I would indeed meet the person I admire. But there is just a bit of a problem, I didn't instantly think of anyone. This is because I have already met lots of people in my life who I admire for different reasons. Especially my family, I admire my mum for having to put up with me for the past 26 years. I haven't really lived at home for the last 10 of those but I can't deal with myself most of the times so for her to deal with me deserves respect. Her and my Dad managed to bring four of us up to be pretty decent so I admire her for that. I admire my sister for all her hard work in her career and finally getting a job as a specialist mortgage advisor. I admire my youngest brother for following in my footsteps and joining the army. I admire my other brother Jason for giving me the cutest and sweetest niece and nephew anybody could wish for. Finally I had huge admiration for my dad, he took me on has his own and did his best with my mum to provide for us all as a family. I admire the way he battled through cancer the first time he got it and constantly kept getting back up everytime he was down. I admire the way he kept on fighting right until the end. I've already met the person I admire the most, it was my dad.
