This year I’ve finally decided to attempt to do some of the things that I never thought I could do. I know that if I never try then I doubt I will ever get anything I want in life, and I know that I want to fully develop my musical skills as a first step to being the best version of myself as possible. A mulligan sounds as if it is an extremely important as to what one might wish to do again, but my do over is as simple as changing one mantra that I have lived by for multiple years. By changing this one thought within my mind, many opportunities would have been open to me in my earlier years in life, but now I can personally change this one negative thought and nearly have my mulligan take effect
Once Sun-jo and Peak were on their way up to base camp Zopa thought it would be better for them to train so he made them walk with heavy packs on their back and climb a wall every time that they stopped. Peak knew this was so he could gain strength, but Zopa didn’t want him to do it alone so Sun-jo was dragged along. Sun-jo never complained about this and they talked and bonded the whole way to base camp. This was important in their relationship because they really got to know each other and become better friends. While Peak and Sun-jo were heading towards the summit and were almost there Peak made the executive decision to not summit and let
All these accomplishments were significant achievements for our chapter as a whole and had a great impact on me. The Community College Completion Corps event was particularly important to me because I was always told that I would end up married and without a degree. Serving as an officer in Phi Theta Kappa Beta Delta Omicron chapter has also helped me demonstrate my leadership ability. My chapter is participating in the Honors In Action and our theme is "Exploring the Natural environment". My fellow officers, members and I decided to focus on wind turbines and to investigate the outcomes of having one in the community.
Personally, I am not the type to get excited over positive results, but this occasion was remarkably unique. My response was to literally jump up and down with glee before floating over to my door, sliding down the stairs, and telling my mom that I made it. For the rest of the night I felt euphoric; nothing could drag me down. One extremely intense month of practice and I achieved what I thought was initially impossible. Based on this, I formed a fresh outlook on challenges: I can accomplish anything I set my sights on so long as I work for it with everything I have.
I had never attempted to ride a bike before so I was extremely nervous. My dad wanted to make sure I was prepared. On the day of my birthday, I was given safety gear first. Without any hesitation I told him thank you. I was excited to know I was going to see my new bike next.
― Lao Tzu Will it be possible to make a plan for life? No in no way, as it is impossible to make a plan for something that is unpredictable, that you cannot see or watch, future is uncertain
Yet, if I chose to let them know about my preferences in such situations, I believe they would do their best to understand but I still believe they would never agree to let me die in any kind of situations. Overall, I really enjoyed reading these sections of the Ghost Boy, and it really made me think how vulnerable but amazing our body and mind is. It made me think of how we live day by day, sometimes ignoring what is around us and keeping ourselves busy. Sometimes complaining about insignificant things while there are people suffering more than us. Instead, “treat everyone with kindness, dignity, compassion, and respect whether or not you think they understand or not - never under estimate the power of the mind…” Martin
Before climbing hills on foot, cycling possessed my passion for a couple of years as my only activity. After one year of riding with Tim, he announced that he would be climbing Mount Rainier. My response was simple; “good luck with that.” Though I began participating on training hikes with Tim as he prepared for his colossal challenge, the two of us continued to ride on a regular basis as riding the “Seattle to Portland” Bicycle Classic remained a mutual goal. Come to find out, the two activities of riding and hiking are terrific cross-training exercise. Both activities are worthy for leg strength, the respiratory system and endurance.
As Wang Lung wants to find a girl for his son, he does not ask for his son’s input at all, until he sees his son change personalities. Wang Lung does what is best for him at that moment, not thinking of the past mistakes nor what the future could possibly hold, but only of the moment present. This is who Wang Lung is, throughout the whole book, and he does not change much. His character is based off the mistakes he makes when only thinking of the good fortune he imagines, but unfortunately he is not one to learn and get the most out of the mistakes he makes. Yes, the earth has been good to him, but Wang Lung
However, this is not seen as a solid basis upon which absolute doubt, required by Descartes, can be built. Ironically, his skepticism offers such that I am in a state of doubt, I will also have doubt about the possibility that there could even be a deceiving being. As such, my doubt about the possibility of such a being serves to undermine the greater doubt that is supposed to be generated by this being. In order for the evil demon to generate such a degree of doubt it must be possible for it to exist. However, Descartes does not provide enough proof for his claim of its possibility.
