The Great Book of lists, chapter 5.1 : People who inspired you

This week, Jartagnan suggested a theme that is very dear to his heart and kindly accepted to write its prompt.

You too can suggest a them or a subject on which you’d like to write a list. You just have to go to the blog’s contact page or to the blog’s Facebook page.

Without further ado, I’m letting Jartagnan speak for himself.

It’s not about Dedcartes, Churchill, Coelho ou any other inspiring thinkers, whose quotes flourish the internet and the social networks.

No, this week is about a list of real people, unknown (or almost) to the world who had a real impact on our life.

Sometimes, just a little thing, a park, a teacher’s precepts, a piece of advice from a friend, you surely had such encounters in your life,  or people who did little but changed the face of your world.

So much gratitude an so many memories for these little but so significant inspirations

 

Here is my list of people who have inspired me :

My father
He is an optimist who often says nobody’s sheltered form a strike of luck. This way of seeing life has often allowed me to open my eyes and spot opportunities I could have missed.

My mother
Just like all researchers, she’s never satisfied with apparences nor averageness. It’s her fault I’m a nerd… and a star wars fan 😉
My grand father
He was a very wise man, never afraid to show a great tolerance but he fought like a lion to protect his family.  A man of great love, a wordsmith and a great cook.

Gordon Ramsay

Yes, an english chef. I like his common sense and how he’s demanding in a kitchen. I apply his motos everyday in my kitchen : cook in a clean and tidy kitchen, no more than 5 ingredients in a recipe, always taste, aso.
When I’m lost in between many recipes, I often wonder what would Gordon do.

Bernard Werber Douglas Kennedy
I have been lucky enough to meet them both. They do influence the way I approach writing. They see writing as a craft that needs to be practiced every day. Their discipline is incredible.
