What They've Taught Me

I was thinking last night about people. I realized that Iironically, our relationships with others, help us grow as individuals.

The lessons we learn and the experiences we have with others, help mold and shape us into the individuals we are. Our relationships help define who we become and what we believe.

I would not be the same "Bri" if it wasn't for the people who surround me. They've taught me...
My brothers are the kind of guys you look at and think "they're way cooler than me". I've learned from them that the only way to be "cool" is to be yourself. Your own, unique, interesting, person.
My dad has taught me to take chances. Sometimes it turns out great, and others, not so great.He's taught me that there will always be options, and you'll always regret not trying.
My little brother, he'll never take "no" for an answer. He's inspired me to believe that no goal is unachievable, and to always continue chasing my dreams.
There are a lot of things I wish I would have known during my first job out of college. One of these is the value of working a little harder, which Ale my co-worker taught me. She was always willing to go that extra mile, making sure she had gone over every detail, and people always noticed this.
You'll never see my granddad without a smile on his face, and I think it's because he truly enjoys life. I've learned from him to live life fully, and enjoy the time we have. He does the things that make him happy.

The most important lesson of all, I've learned from my mama. You'll very rarely see her stressed or upset, and I think it's because of her unwavering faith. She's taught me to trust, and believe, that everything will work out as it should.
 
I've learned a lot from others, and will continue learning and growing with each new relationship and experience.
