Mentor: He was the greatest man I’ve ever known


Today’s Vlog Everyday in April (VEDA) episode is about the greatest man I have ever known. He was my maternal grandfather and stepped in to raise my brothers and I.  When I think about the greatest mentor to me, he’s the first who comes to mind.  He, as a mentor should,  helped raise me up to the person I am today.  His straight forward no-nonsense love was everything I needed.

When I was 16 he started to become ill and by the time I was 17, he was weak and unable to leave home most days.  When he was unable to leave home, and my grandmother was away I was the happily chosen person to sit with him.  During those times we spent alone, I learned so much about his life.  He shared stories of step back, failure, overcoming obstacles and how much he loved my grandmother.  He assured me that life was good, but not always easy.  Listen below to how he became my mentor for life and is the greatest man I have ever known.  I hope you like this video and if you do, please select like and share with me how your greatest mentor is.

Confessions of 2016

Where did the 365 days go?

2016, I got better, my relationships grew closer, my ability to express myself was clearer, I was more vulnerable, I asked for help more often, I said no a little more, I cried more than I wanted to, I let go of some of my fears, I grabbed ahold of love tighter, I forgave, I was angry, I was happy and I was sad, I argued, I listened, I asked for what I wanted.
