FLHD 1500 Can One Person Change the World? I definitely believe that it only takes one person to impact the word, make a huge difference and change it a better place. That this one person even if not being able to do a lot materially to change the world, still has the power to inspire others and help that person changes the world. It may be hard to believe, but I have a strong belief that one person can set an example for others that may affect the outcome of any and every situation. I always ask myself this question and as Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” and that is absolutely true.
What seems so important to you from other works? “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi Every change that you are going to take place will start with yourself, wise is he who invest his time to improving himself, money can vanish from your life, even friends too, but skill never goes from life, improve your skills, learn something new every day. Explore the world. Explore the
“You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need”. Finding and choosing your destiny or career while you’re growing up is hard especially when people have certain expectations of you. My mom put in me to choose something that would make me happy because I would have to live with It forever nobody else would and making certain decisions either good or bad can have a great effect in my future. Choosing a path that makes you happy is hard to find but with the help of people around you it can make things easier but it can also make it harder. There are so many choices in life you have to make that can make you or break you.
Sadly, people can pass on without leaving much of a legacy behind; questions may have gone unanswered, words could have been left unsaid. Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
The opening remark was “You get out of this retreat what you put into it.” and this point was very true. To experience this retreat fully, one has to be energized and ready to think, as that will yield what the retreat was capable of. A retreat is a very valuable experience. It is one of the few times that a person has the entire day to reflect on one’s relationship with God. It is something that must be taken advantage of, because it will not occur again for another
I learned that I am capable of adjusting and adapting to what is necessary. I learned to be independent from a young age. Even if I wasn 't physically with my parents, I discovered they would always be there for me and do whatever they possibly can for me, allowing for a healthy relationship with my parents. I became proficient in English and became bilingual, a skill that would give me much advantage in my future. Other valuable lessons were that it was acceptable to ask for help and to leave my comfort zone to accomplish something.
In the end, that’s why I choose to focus my time, and energy around those who inspire, support, and encourage me. When its all said and done, those are the people who want to see me grow into my happiest, strongest, wisest self. I am a firm believer that you can do anything as long as you have the passion, the drive, the focus, and the support. With that being said, I am so grateful to have been rewarded with such a phenomenal group of family and friends who have been supportive of me from the beginning. I know that they will continue to be here for me in whatever way I need them to be.
We always want to believe other people will change because we think it's the best for them and maybe even ourselves. I remember always believing that my sister would change and stop doing drugs and even though she would stop for few days, she would go back to it. One day I just told myself I should stop believing
These thoughts left me defended. When I entered the house my mother asked me how was my day. I told her that it was fine. Being a mother she got to know that something was wrong with me .I didn’t want to tell her at first that the department I got the admission was not the one I was aiming for and even if I left it , I will waste my year and the money I submitted for the admission. If I went for the department will I be happy with my degree, will I do justice with myself?
Work to reward yourself, enjoy every minute of it, and educate yourself so you can understand what is happening around you. My mother is alive today and I became a stronger person, so I believe that the crisis has been fully resolved. LearningI understand that everyone handles crisis differently than one another. I may never be able to understand what someone is going through. I have experienced things in my life that give me an idea, but really, I will have to treat each situation delicately.
