My friends in North Syracuse were extremely supportive of me and I could not be more grateful for that. They taught me to be accepting of everyone, and they helped me become a less shy person. When I was younger I was not a fan of talking to and being around people I did not know. My friends in North Syracuse kind of led me out of my shell, which really helped when I moved to a completely new area. The friends I have now remind me of my friends I had in North Syracuse.
This all made me realize that trying out new experiences is nerve wracking, but it does bring changes in our life and maybe it help us to be the person we are right now. Most of the time is worth trying new experiences when you have friends and family supports. For me, my family and friends have always guided me. That’s the reason this move away from my family is not that bad when we often reunite during breaks and technology like FaceTime had help me to stay connected. In Addition, the little changes do help to learn new lessons of life.
Because of my new situation of being alone for the first time in my life, I felt lost and looked for support from other people. I saw that moving to a friend’s place would satisfy me needs but it made my situation worse. Being a shy person, it was hard for me to approach and express my disagreements with my roommate, but this experience made me someone different about future situations as those. Nowadays if I need to express myself or need to say anything, I will say it. I still am me, but I am more open to deal with conflicts head on instead of accepting them.
Do big things really come in small packages? I believe they do because for me the simplest changes in someone’s life can change everything about a person’s life. I have always been the been the little one in the family, the baby and little bro to my siblings. it’s not so bad being the little brother but being the little one means you are probably going to look up an older brother or sibling and will assumably follow in there foots steps whether it’s good or bad. Most people say being the bigger brother is more optimal because you don’t have to get beat up.
Another reason they are my inspiration is they teach me a lot of new things that they learned from their life and they always encourage me to try something new because they believe I could be good at a lot of things. They always tell me to try a new sport because they say you never know what you could be good at and they say they regret not trying new things or continuing something an example is my 2nd oldest brother Jaquil says he regrets not continuing to box because he thinks he could have been really good. And they say take advantage of the things you have now because it might be the last time you get to do it. And they also help me decisions that I have to make. In addition, they know a lot of people so it helps me out in life.
My Educational Journey Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
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
If I were raised in such environment, I would always blame myself for making mistakes, and for not being the best. However, it’s not about being the best, but about being better; this is something I learned from my father. He has always told me to do what I have to do, and what I can do; winning or losing is not important, it’s the journey toward the goal that is important. I can tell, that these words were always releasing for me, as I knew that nobody is expecting something from me, so I have always been comfortable working for my goal, and maybe have given my best without being conscious of it. However, I liked the fact that the father did encourage his daughter to participate, and did the impossible to have her in the beauty contest.
1. My life experiences just happened to lead me to social work by chance; I believe it was meant to happen, however. After I got my GED when I was 18, I was left with the question: what now? Do I decide to try college, or go to work? My mother tried to go to college at Ball State, but she barely finished a year before she decided it wasn’t for her.
I discovered that I can change for my well being and for the well being of others. In addition, over the course of this stage in life I learned to find out what who I really wanted to be. Like me others can change the way they want to be, because negativity won’t take you
This quote is very important to me because there has been many times in my life that I was to afraid to take a risk, yes I may have made the safe choice but what if I would have had the courage to do the hard thing? Where would be my career or relationship’s be? I think that I can live a better life with less regrets and more adventure, in the future I will try to face my fear of failing and purse my personal legend. Just like Santiago kept pursuing his destiny even though it would have been so easy to give up just like the crystal merchant, Santiago was rewarded in the end with a great adventure, knowledge and worldly treasures. To finish my story Andrew and Jonathan both went to collage, jonathans fear of failing in baseball got to him and he thought he would complete collage and not get drafted into the major league and be left without a job or career, so he choked and his baseball career suffered, and he never made it to the majors.
There are times when we have no control over what is happening in our lives. Then, there are other times when we become the thought leader or the force driving that change. We have to look at our circumstances, we have to look at our lives, we have to look at the events surrounding us, and ask ourselves what will be our response? How can I take a proactive approach to this situation? For example, if there is someone seeking a job transition, they’re probably in a career right now doing the same thing they’ve been doing for quite a long time.
(Albom 103)¨ I agree with Morrie every emotion people go through doesn´t last and we have to learn how to detach so we can live our lives happy and how we want to. One time my parents were going through stuff which lead into them getting separated most of the time that would affect me. But then I got over it because life goes on and you have to enjoy the time you have with the people you love. By me doing this I realized I threw myself into different emotions that would benefit me and I changed my life. Another lesson that Morrie
My friend and I are struggling to change our mindset, from fixed mindset to growth mindset. We don’t blame our parents for that, and we can’t, because we also learn at school and at our community, which are really out of our parents’ control. Instead, we are thankful to becoming what we are and knowing that we are able to change our mindset now. I know change is hard, but it is possible and worth it. I like the quote from Mindset book, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.” (Mindset 246) It is become the biggest challenge in our life, because if we want to change our mindset, then we need to change it now while we are young, otherwise it would be too late.
I was able to increase the benefit of task management but still struggled to maintain the efficiency that comes along with that due to losing a case manager and taking on the entire case load myself. Understanding different perspectives has always come easy to me, however, learning to quite myself when my integrity is challenged because of someone else’s perspective was a definite challenge to me. I felt that the objective of learning what effective leadership can accomplish was the one that was successful. After shadowing Barb, I learned effective communication techniques, how to inspire the staff with vision and drive and how to have integrity in the midst of turmoil. Applying this practicum to becoming a baccalaureate-prepared nurse will come in time.
