A Real Life Book Character

When I was invited by my sweetie over at The Girl in the Moonlight to write about A Real Life Book Character I didn’t really know how to start. However I started thinking about it and I think in life we are surrounded by lots of people, who have the potential to be a real life’s book character.

A real life book character to me is someone, who has a unique story to tell, not just a great story, but a story that is different and special, in a good or a bad way, or both. A real life book character is also someone, who is strong, passionate, brave, creative – a real role model. It’s also an inspirational person, who can bring out the best in people. Of course there are also book characters, who are sensitive, introverted and don’t know what to do with their life. But as long as the have something to tell…

The first person that comes to mind, is a 19 year old girl I know. 5 years ago she had a surgery and ever since then her life has changed, she can barley see, has to take lots of medicine and she is struggeling with lots of things because of her condition. Someone has to be there for her 24/7 and a normal life is unimaginable. She has a big passion though – drawing. Whenever she has time she draws beautiful patterns and colours them. She created several cards and also a beautiful scarf. She is one of the bravest people I know and she is full of energy and happiness whenever I see her. I really admire her, her future is uncertain, but she still manages to help others and make something of the things she still can do.

People suffer, people have to fight for there dreams. I know a lady, who had to go through a lot when it came to job searching, she got lots of rejections and then she also had to deal with a tragedy. The most important thing though – she fought and went for it all, taking a risk, but eventually it paid off and she met the love of her life through it. Such a sweet and adorable story…

Thinking about it, I believe that each and every one of us is a real life book character. We all have our own story to tell and maybe someone would like to read yours. I often find myself relating to a book character so much and I start to adore them. You never know, but someone might feel that with you and we can also make another person’s story more complete and wonderful.

What about your real life book character?! I’d love to hear more about them ;) I’d like to ask some of my lovely blogger friends to tell us about their real life book character – so if you are up for it Jenny, Suze, Becca and Holly Martin You don’t have to of course, but it would be very interesting…
