I love the line in the movie As Good As It Gets when the character played by Jack Nicholson expresses gratitude and amazement at the impact of a new friendship: "You make me want to be a better person."

Today your prompt is to write about who that person is in your life. Who makes you want to be a better person?

  1. The person in my life that makes me want to be a better person is my youngest daughter Courtney. The old addage: "the apple doesn't fall from the tree" sums up Courtney. She is very much like me. A fixer, domestic, artistic, outspoken, passionate and headstrong. I get Courtney because she is so much like me...and in her I can see her making the same mistakes that I did. As her mother I don't want her to be hurt by those I'm trying to live a better life to show her the options and hopefully she will make better decisions in her life than I did.
