But is that really accurate? There are some points in life when I’ve felt that I would never conquer a problem. From trying to learn to walk, to making big decisions that would affect the outcome of life.
I had a mortgage, I was travelling with work and had great prospects ahead of me. Inside though, I was deeply unfulfilled. I wasn 't enjoying my work, I felt like I wasn 't using my full potential, and I longed to wake up feeling like my work was making a difference – to someone or something. Yet, I didn 't have a clue what else I could do. Indeed I 'd struggled on and off for years to figure out a way to change (making, it seemed to me, every career change mistake there was to make), but without making progress.
This is very much like life because once reached, though taking what seems like forever, the rider is amazed by the view and how everything ahead seems so clear. My life is very much a roller-coaster, having many ups and downs, throwing me every which way, and once I feel like I'm prepared for what's to come, I'm shocked yet again by a surprise
As a child I was very cheerful. In an attempt to get everyone to like me, I abandoned senses of shame and grief to be able to better enjoy life and make happy the people around me. I was content living as I was; content with living in a world where everything revolved around my life. I was happy living in a world where nothing else mattered; in a world outside of reality.

“What do we live for if its not to make life less difficult for each other?” Many of us students struggle throughout High School with parents getting divorced, loosing a loved one, teenage pregnancy, and family issues etc. These obstacles shouldn’t get in the way of continuing with life and furthering in our education and future. No one has it easy that’s why being a mentor for students my age and younger meant a difference in the world. Making it a little easier for students not to always see the bad was my goal. Motivating them to achieve great things and to overcome the obstacles life brings.
Challenges There are some things in life that cheer you up and some things that don’t, but we all have to face the challenges that come. From the events that have happened to me so far, I’ve learned that life can be challenging sometimes, but that is if you know how to overcome them. When I was ten years old, I was living in my hometown Monterey Park, where I lived with my mom, dad, brother, and step-brother. Recently starting fifth grade with my two best friends Stephanie and Victoria. All my life I’ve been known as the shy girl or the quietest person in class.
Certainly, it was still a good one, but it wasn’t what my family expected. But if you ask me what school I preferred, it will be the school I learned, graduated from, thanks to it, I went to the high school that I want. It looked like I was getting back to the path my family chose but contrary to their prediction, something else happened. At that time, I was about to turn 17. I used to study Chemistry quite well but in the second year of high school, the curriculum became increasingly difficult, and my tutor quit her job.
In life, we are constantly having to deal with the things that are completely capable of destroying how we view ourselves. The things we encounter in our day to day living can create issues that may degrade our ultimate outlook on life. Although it sometimes can be incredibly difficult to understand the things that we go through. In order for some to make it through their days, it’s easier when one might have a simple motto to live by. Some believe that a simple motto is the best way to debacle those regular rough trials they experience.
Life isn’t always easy and fair. It has ups and downs that stand to happiness and sadness but of course life must go on. Despite of everything that life those to me I’m still strong and always heavy for it. Just like this experience of mine that really stand as an inspiration for me every day. When I was a little boy, I really wanted to become a basketball player but many people didn’t trust on my ability.
