“The mind is everything; what you think you become.”
I saved this onto my archive on the 5th week of Fall Semester and never got the chance to complete the post. I am so happy to see how much I have grown these past few months after struggling and trying to accept who I am. I put my time and dedication to school and I am so humble to have this opportunity to expand my knowledge:
“I went back to school in August and let me tell you! It sure has been hellish trying to adjust to all the changes. For those of you who are curious, I am an English major so all my classes consist of a large variety of Literature. I am going on my fifth week of school, and I am slowly beginning to adjust to the whole notion. However, I can’t help but feel as if I am not good enough. I keep on comparing myself to others and I feel as if I am not intelligent enough.”
I am headed towards finals now (actually I am completely finished with this semester), and my confidence towards my studies has drastically improved. Although I am still very insecure of my writing; I have managed to accept constructive criticism and grow from it. Words cannot begin to justify the massive amount of knowledge I have gained these past tedious months. It almost hurt a little coming to an understanding of how ignorant I am about certain topics. But, hey! there is always room to grow.
Anyways, for this particular blog post I wanted to focus on how important it is to believe in yourself in anything you are passionate about. It is normal to feel afraid, although the thought of failing is such a scary concept to even think of, it is essential to put an effort in whatever you believe in. If you don’t try, then you will never know. The only person who is capable of stopping you from staying committed to your short and long term goals, is yourself. Time flies and it does not wait for anyone.
So if you want to teach, TEACH. If you want to dance, DANCE. If you want the girl, GO GET THE GIRL. Believe in yourself, or nobody else will!
Just some small advice from a fellow friend, whom is growing in this journey, we call life 🙂
