Bruce Lee Inspiration

To start off I don’t know who my inspiration is. Before now I have never had to answer the question of who is your inspiration. Threw the process of writing this essay I will find out who my inspirations are and why. Ill start out by asking the question what is an inspiration? An inspirational person is someone you look up to, someone you can go to for answers, someone that you have great respect for, and in some ways someone who guilds your life.
My first two inspirations, like many, are my parents. My parents are divorced and I live with my mom and step dad. My mom drives me to do better and succeed. Her standards and expectations keep me on the right path everyday. My dad helps me on a more personal level. I don’t know my dad that well but I am more like him than my mom. Even though we don’t see each other that often he knows what to say when I am having a hard time. Being this age and starting to figure out who I really am is hard but I feel like if I get to know my dad I will get to know myself. Parents always have to be an inspiration because the child is a product of them. The kid will find inspiration in their parents whether they are good parents or bad.
Bruce Lee has always been an inspiration in my life. Bruce Lee was a was a Chinese American, Hong Kong actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, film director, film producer, screenwriter, and founder of the Jeet Kune Do martial arts movement in the 1970s. Lees words and phrases guild and inspire me to be better at all the things I love doing. He said “Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water” (Lee). The first time I heard this it changed the style in which I thought about everything. He thinks that in everything you do you should flow like water and be shapeless. Become your environment and adapt to it and make you own forms threw your experiences. I try to incorporate this idea two of my passions. This quote is very important to me in my artwork...
