30 Day Writing Challenge - Day Four

"Write about someone who inspires you."

Someone who inspires me a great deal is my friend Erin. Often I struggle with day to day life because of things like my depression and I just feel like I'll never accomplish anything I want to and that I shouldn't even bother trying. Then I see what Erin has been getting up to. A couple of years ago, Erin was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis but she hasn't let it slow her down at all! She is often out hiking insane distances and pushing her body as much as she can. She's currently preparing to walk the path along Hadrian's wall. That's 84 miles (135km)! It's an unbelievable task and she is doing it to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. She has a Just Giving page set up HERE! So please go send her some love and support!

On top of the hiking, Erin holds down a part time job, is a postgraduate student and delves deep into her passion of genealogy. What lemons life throws at Erin, she makes sweet sweet lemonade with them and that is why she inspires me on a daily basis. She's one of the strongest women I know and an inspiration to more than just me. I know I can jump the hurdles life puts up in front of me because she gives me the confidence in myself. She doesn't know that but it's true. I really look up to her and admire her. 

Until next time,
