What’s your definition of family? What does family mean to you?
Family can take many forms such as a tight group of friends, a significant other, two parents, one parent, grandparents, or a guardian. Each person has their own definition of family. For me, that definition is someone that will love you unconditionally and will always be there for you and have your back.
My family is like a circus. My dad is the strongman, always wowing people with his feats of strength and will. My mom is the ringmaster, always keeping everyone in line. My oldest sister, Megan, is the lion. She is always the most fierce and exotic one out of my family. My other sister, Kate, is the clown. She is always making people laugh and brightening up their day in any way possible. As for me? I don’t know my role yet. I might be the magician with all of the tricks and the mischievous attitude, or I might be the trapeze artist, always on a thin line and not knowing if I will fail and fall.
Even though I don’t know my place in my circus, it doesn’t mean that I don't belong there.
A family is like a circus. It’s crazy, hectic, and there will be bumps and falls, but the show must go on! Because in the end there is something beautiful and amazing to watch.
In one word family is love, but it is so much more than just one word, it’s a feeling. The feeling of family is something you can’t describe, it’s like a warm hug, but all around your body and in your heart at the same time. It’s the feeling you get when you make cookies the night before Christmas. It’s the feeling you get when you drop from the Superman ride at Six Flags. Family is all of those feelings wrapped into one.
I want to come back to the question, "What does family mean to you?"
Well, for me, family is a bunch of crazy, loud people put together and somehow they get along and form a deeper connection.
Family is everything to me.
I hope you will choose to spend time with your family and share those lifelong memories with them. Love them unconditionally because family is the backbone of your life and without a backbone, you can’t walk or run, you can’t thrive and be the best version of yourself.
