I took the choice to go to California despite my parent’s approval. However, no matter the choice, I would’ve taken the choice that the universe had already written my my path. Whether I decided to go or not, the track was laid for me. The quote is telling us that our path is written all we have to do is take the first step towards it. Time will pass by along with us but our destiny is there.
But when it came to a physical training session, I failed and had to go to the clinic due to severe pain in my back. It shocked me when I was diagnosed with scoliosis. Unfortunately, my dream was crushed by scoliosis. B. Relevancy Statement: When I reflected back my lifestyle before I aware that I am suffering from scoliosis, it did not shock me at all. I realized how much I have taken for granted this vital organ and abused it by my daily activity and lifestyle as well.
My parents allowed me to grieve anything I needed to – loss of friendships, breakups, bad grades, moving, leaving home to go to college, etc. My sister got diagnosed with scoliosis and was given a back brace at the same time she got braces for her teeth. So, I remember my parents helping her through the grieving process of those changes. They listened to her and allowed her to cope with it however she needed to without trying to tell her what to do but they also tried to help her see the positives of it all. In chapter 6, Gutman says, “It I important to surround ourselves with positive people – people who are both respectful of our desire to enact change and who understand how to offer the emotional support we need” (Gutman, 2005, p. 90).
That is how it becomes difficult and is hard on us. Is there a pattern to live which makes it smooth on you? There is no onen way that assures peace in life. Every life is different, circumstances are different, reactions are different. So there is no set pattern to be at peace.
Throughout my life, I have encountered many obstacles that contribute to who I am today. Luckily I have had the strength within me to overcome all of them. When I was seven years old, my parents filed for a divorce. My father moved to sacramento and my mother stayed in Redwood City with my Sister and I. I didn 't understand why. I didn 't understand how, but I could not find the courage to ask my mother about either.
My life, in particular, has been filled with numerous up and downs. It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster going up and down. Some believe that life is filled with obstacles and experiences that will help us pave the path to our own successes. But is that really accurate? There are some points in life when I’ve felt that I would never conquer a problem.
Second, any stupid risks I take that I think may have been a mistake in the first place would actually benefit me in the long run because I would learn from my mistakes. For instance, one time I drove the golf cart to fast and almost flipped it, so now I drive the golf cart extremely slow. Last, I want to live life to its fullest and if I do not take risks everyday than I do not think I am living life to its fullest journey. As can be seen, I do not want to live a life with no risks because that would mean I would not actually be living life like we are supposed to. First of all, life would be really boring if I never took risks.
Many things have happened that have made me see other perspectives. I have learned that the struggle for someone can be easy for others because everyone has their own personal burden to carry. I have seen that the happiness of many has different definitions and that stepping out of your comfort zone exposes you to many things both good and bad. No matter how much last year has impacted me the years before that have also given me lessons and values that I know carry with laughs and
What have the past years of your life brought you? What are you proud of accomplishing? What do you wish you haven’t done? If you do this--without that future anxiety!-- you might find that paths toward the future become surprisingly clearer. Not completely clear, not certain, but clearer.” So I plan to start from day one, document all that I have learned, and hopefully explain why I am in IDS.
