This one I have to say is the toughest one on the list for the 30 day challenge. First because it’s a really personal issue for me and second……it was REALLY difficult for me to choose who made the biggest impact on me. There are a lot of people growing up that had positive and negative impacts on me, but still…………it didn’t seem big enough to write. And it’s not the most heartfelt thing you may expect. But it has influenced me a lot in my life. For the good and bad.


The biggest impact on me is my dad. He died when I was 11. He had severe depression and because of that, he made a choice that forever changed my life. I have good and bad memories about him. He was a great man in so many ways, but when I was born, apparently he was just “different” so I didn’t get to share all that greatness that he had. He was different with me. And I won’t lie, it’s hard when we have family gatherings and talk about him because my view of him is so different. Yes. I do love him. He was my first male influence and there were things that we shared that I absolutely cherish.

I always imagine what my life would be like if he was around still. Would it be better? Would it be worse? Would I have made better decisions if he was around? Or worse? Since he is gone, there isn’t much that I can do about it so I do what I can to make the most of it every day. It’s just strange that these last couple years have been hitting me the most. I can’t pinpoint why.

Either way, even though he is gone, I still love him. And I’m thankful that I was able to have him in my life at all.



I have been really sick so couldn’t do my challenge yesterday. I do have some strength today, (and I’m bored from lying on the couch all day) so I decided that I would write today.

Picking my favorite super hero was really easy for me. Especially since he has been my favorite since I was little. I’ve always had a thing for……………


He is the only DC character I like. I find everything about him fascinating. His background, how he became batman, the storylines…….Derek and I were having this discussion the other day about children and super heroes. He was saying that statistics show that children who are happier and healthier like Spiderman. Children who are darker, not has happy or healthy like Batman. Which in a lot of ways made sense to me. I did have a difficult upbringing. I know there are people out there who have been through a lot more than I, but still…….it was rough enough for me.  And maybe that’s true why I like Batman so much. Maybe I feel that there is this connection. That we have something in common and it’s easier for me to relate to him………Or maybe it’s just because I really like him and he’s the one that I watched or read the most growing up.

I think I’ll just stick with that.
