September is a month that holds a special place in my heart. It's not just because of the changing seasons or that autumn is in the air. September is the month when both of my parents celebrate their birthdays, and it's a time when I reflect on the ways they inspire me every single day.
My dad's September Birthday.
My dad's birthday falls early in September. He is a source of strength and wisdom in our family. His birthday reminds me of the importance of hard work, perseverance, and a strong moral compass. He has instilled in me the belief that one can achieve anything through determination and dedication.
My dad's love for learning and his endless curiosity inspire me to continually seek knowledge and personal growth. He leads by example, showing me that life is a journey of self-improvement, and that it's never too late to pursue one's passions.
My Mom's September Birthday
As the month progresses we come to my mom's birthday. She is the embodiment of selflessness and kindness. Her unwavering support and the way she effortlessly balances her career and family life inspires me to strive for excellence in all aspects of my life. My mom always has such a calmness and seems to parent with grace and ease where I feel like I’m a ball of stress and overwhelm 😩
My mom is kind to anyone and everyone. The first to lend a helping hand and an ear to listen, give advice or to just be there for someone to vent.
I’m extremely lucky how ahead of the time and evolved my parents were back in the 80’s and 90’s with how they parented/disciplined more like parents do today and not the stereotypical way of the 80’s and 90’s.
Maybe it’s the industry they’re in but they have always taught my sister and I to believe in ourselves and go for it. They taught us we can get what we want, just put some time and effort in it. They believed in our creative visions and let us grow and travel when we were young. Even supporting the dream we both had to move to LA (at different times). They encouraged us to follow that dream and try it out.
My parents birthdays remind me to be compassionate, patient, and that small acts of kindness can make a big difference in the lives of others.
While my parents' birthdays are a time to celebrate their individual qualities and contributions, it's their combined influence that shapes my daily life. Their love and partnership serve as a constant reminder of the power of a strong and supportive relationship. They've shown me that a loving family is the foundation upon which one can build a fulfilling life.
September is more than just a month of birthdays in my family; it's a time to reflect on the extraordinary people who have shaped my life. My parents, with their unique qualities and unwavering support, inspiring me daily to be the best version of myself. Their birthdays serve as a reminder of the values and principles that guide me through life. I am truly fortunate to have such incredible role models, and I am grateful for the inspiration they provide, not only in September but every day of the year.
