Man this week has been a rough week. On Sunday, I lost my wallet and keys. So I was just going to deal with that and bum rides from people. On Tuesday, I got a ride to work with my manager. She had to get there a few hours earlier than my shift started, so I was going to do some homework. We went inside for 30 min to eat some food and I was going to run back to the car (that was parked right outside the window) and grab my backpack. A lady came into the store and told us that my managers passenger window was busted out. We went out there to find not only her window busted, but my coat and backpack with laptop was stolen.
It was a rough day, its going to be a rough few weeks. But knowing how to make jokes about myself and how to make a bad situation into a not so bad one is key. I think as being a teacher I am going to have to master this skill. To turn a child’s day around will teach them many lessons. I would want to be able to pass that trait down to them. I want to teach them how to look at the bright side in any situation.
I think that is an important skill in life and I want everyone to have the chance to learn it.
Being confident is one of the most attractive characteristics in a person. Being confident in who you are and what you look like comes from deep down. I believe confidence comes from your childhood. If your parents give you confidence, push you to do things, and constantly remind you how great you are, then you will be confident. I can thank my parents for my confidence. They always pushed me to be happy with who I was and let me do what I wanted to do.
Lately that confidence has been sliding. Just a bit. I want to gain it back like I had it when I was little. My parents always tell the story that I was so mad at them for making me late to my soccer game. All I would say was “they need me there!” I was not good at soccer at all. But let me tell you, I was confident that they needed me there.
I want to be that teacher that can help students feel confident in their abilities. Some parents are the best at giving their children confidence. I want to have activities that everyone can succeed at, and I want to teach my class how to make each other feel important. That is one of my main goals as becoming a teacher.
No matter how busy you are, how packed your schedule is, or how long your to do list is, I believe there is always a need to stop and breathe. Our society today has so many instant responses to what we want, we need everything at the snap of our fingers. I have recently noticed my addiction to instant gratification.
I noticed when I would get stressed out after going hard at the gym for a week and not seeing results. Sounds silly, I know, but its how my brain works. I love doing things that gives me instant gratification and I know thats how most of society is too.
I have been looking for a place to be able to do yoga in the morning. This way I wake up and start my day with just relaxing and taking time for myself. It will teach me to stop and breathe.
