My hero, your hero

9 08 2008

There is a competition where students are asked to write a true story about their hero. The hero had to be a real person and you would have to send in a picture.  I didn’t feel my hero was good enough a hero for them and didn’t feel like entering. However, I thought I would blog about it instead.

As I mentioned earlier, I don’t have a specific hero. I have many heroes, my everyday heroes. They are each and every person in my life. They have all showed me something I should learn about life and reflect upon. That is what makes them my heroes. Now, if I was going to list each and everyone of my heroes, this post will not end. So I figured, why not I blog about the one hero that as been with me forever, ever since the day I was born. That hero would be me; Cheyenne Phillips.

You may think I am self-centered at this point but think about it. When was the last time you considered yourself a hero? I don’t think you have ever. You don’t consider yourself a hero because sometimes, you concentrate too much on your negatives and not on all the good things you have or have done. Hero basically means a person with super human abilities or has performed heroic acts. It  is depressing, knowing that so many people in the world can’t see that their hero is themselves.

Really think about it. Recall back to your childhood. What was the one thing that you were afraid of the most. There might be a long list but just pick out a few. For me, the scariest things in the universe was the dark. It was so creepy to me. I felt anything could pop out of it and take me away. I bet you felt that way too. You would be so terrified by it and have the worse nightmares about it.

You might have gotten over that fear at one point of your life. I did. Good for you and me. You picked up the courage to overcome your fear. I picked up the courage to walk into the dark all on my own when I was about 8. The fact that I have courage to over come my fear makes me a hero. Courage is considered a heroic quality. You had the courage to overcome a fear of any sort, you are brave, you are a hero. If you still have fears you haven’t overcome yet (example: I fear falling from any height), slowly try to get the courage to overcome it. Of course, your fear would be easier to over come if you have support from your friends.

I feel that I am my own hero because I have gone through a lot of experiences, both good and bad. You have them too. People say life is so complicated and they don’t know what to do or unsure how to live it. You are a hero for going through so much and making pass the difficult times and moving on. You have the strenght to carry on with life. There are some that go into depression and they can’t find the strenght to pull themselves up and carry on. These sad and poor people sweep themselves off the face of the earth. They emotionally feel weak and their body reacts accordingly. They are so weak that they just pass away. Many don’t let their strenght leave them and you fight through tough times. I have and you have.

We have strenght and courage and we are brave. We are heroes. So, why don’t we consider ourselves heroes? It is because we look solely at our negatives. Time to think POSITIVE.

Well, I know I am my hero! How about you?
