Imagine you wanted to be an artist, or a musician, or a politician, or whatever you want to do. What if you tried and succeeded and made a career off of what you loved to do and everyday you were so thankful you took that chance? What if someone told you no? They stated you that you can’t do that; you have to do this. That you can’t be an artist you have to be an accountant and spend your every waking moment in an office. What if? Life is all about taking risks and if your lucky your dreams come true. However, there is no such thing as luck. Luck is when chance meets opportunity. In Krik? Krak!, we see a girl who wants to be a writer; but she can’t because it is not what she is advised to be. She is having trouble with her identity. Because of the oppression from her mom, she is unlucky. She has the
I always say " you see me, I have never worked a day in my life." When I was in high school my parents never allowed me to work, so I spent most of my time focusing on school. Something that gave me a great advantage in high school, but disadvantage in learning time manegment or how to act on a job. So, I decided when I started college to work, I am an assistant in my university student engagment and success center. I am in the process of learning how to manage my time every day and make good use of it with work. In the office I do things like put together flyers, make applications, organize and anything that is administrative. Working and going to school has helped me become a better at managing my time and practicing how to act professionally.
One of my past work experiences influenced my perception of meaningful work because I have had jobs where I was there just for a paycheck. For example, I worked at a grocery store but I never enjoyed my job I only enjoyed the people I worked with. So working there made it feel like a chore that I was forced to do. But while I was at training for the army I enjoyed the people and the work we were doing so it never felt like work or a job to me. To me, it felt like a hobby so the time always flew by no matter what we were doing.
In life one of the biggest question I have always asked myself is. What is my purpose in life? To help me understand what the concept required, I had to dig in deeper from a Christian worldview of what God has planned for me. In this paper I will briefly talk about How my worldview has change my perspective on how I view myself as a Christian, my job, academics, citizenship and how it has help me to become a better steward for Christ.
First, I am a wife, second a student, third a healthcare professional, and forth a friend. My ranking system for my life roles is the same as my priorities in life. I’m devoted to all my life roles, but some roles hold greater value because I believe they enrich my life more than others. My family, friends, and coworkers if in the same life situation would most likely rank their life roles in the same order. It’s my view that society has shaped our belief system to be this way. Taylor (2012) “Your values will influence your decisions related to your relationships, career, and other activities you engage in. Despite this importance, few people choose their values. Instead, they simply adopt the values of their parents and the dominant values of society. In all likelihood, the values that you internalized as a child remain with you through adulthood (yes, in some cases, people reject the values of their upbringings).” This holds mostly true in my life with the exception of the fact my patents are very religious and hold the church in very high regard, and I don’t.
What I remember most about those days was the hard times. Because of WWI, times were difficult. There was a strict decline in employment and the majority of people living in Waxahachie lived in poverty. After my husband was killed, I became one of those people. The day he died was the day that my most extreme struggles began.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” My family always asked me. If I were doing what I thought I would be doing when I was a kid, I would be in Hollywood by now. I would be on the must see Thursday night comedy/drama show. This was my life long dream until I hit eighth grade I realized I was camera shy. So like everyone else it was onto the next passion, right? It took me until high school to appreciate how strong my passion for space was. Every night I would stare at the moon, more and more. Eventually, My love for the moon became a want to travel to the moon. “I’m going to make it up there one day” I would always say. Until someone my early junior year of high school told me to give it up because the space companies were gong down the whole, and by the time I would graduate I would have no job.
The things that are characterized in the poem are what has made me into the person I am today. Some of what was described are the roles that I have in society, like being a sister or a farmer. The other factors that are mentioned are what has shaped and influenced my views of people and how I see the world. Being close with God has kept me grounded in my faith and always reminds me to stay humble. It reminds me to live by the word of God and do well to others, just as he would do. I feel that as a child of God, it is my responsibility to serve him by my abilities to help others in all the ways that I can, whether it be in the hospital or on the farm. Growing up on a farm has taught me life lessons that I can take far in life. The experiences and time I have spent in the barn and with the animals, has shown me to respect other beings and has instilled a work ethic in me that is far to none. My family also plays a major role in my life and I think it is the most crucial part of growing up. They work hard and do my part at the barn when I am not able to be there, so I can go to school and study that I need to do to further my career in nursing. Being a student is my number one priority at this time in my life. The library is my new home away from home, and my textbooks and computer are my new best friends. All of these components contribute to my well-being and they make up my environmental supra-system (personal communication, October 9, 2017). Approaching the nursing
What is the purpose of life? A question many people struggle with. A kind of question asked, not expecting an answer. I have the answer to every problem, the purpose of life is to serve and love others as Jesus Christ did.
We always tend to question ourselves as we reach adulthood- Am I going to be successful? Have I even changed since being a child? Am I really who I think I am? From the moment we entered the world to the day we die, there is a small portion of adolescence where we experience who we really are and what even makes us that way. Although, as a nineteen year old lady, I still have growing to do; I have made discoveries that really explain why I am the person I present myself to be and why others would agree. Today I define myself as being independent, honest, and a psychology major.
“There always will be a winning side and a losing side, despite that we have to move forward to see the future; No one has been successful without overcoming hindrance on the pathway of triumph.” The above philosophy has played a significant role in shaping of my objectives and framing of my future plans. My childhood was completely different compared to the other kids. My father used to stay away
Viktor Frankl three distinctly human qualities that he identified were spirituality, freedom, and responsibility. My human quest would be questions that I would ask myself. Such as, do my life have a meaning? Is my life worth living? How can I explain suffering, illness, and death? My entitle of my book would be my purpose of life. I have a meaning in life is to love myself as God would want me to love. My life has never been great my life has it up and down. There was a time when I was so depressed that I want to give up. I had to take a good look at myself and ask myself this question does my life have a meaning. According, life does have a purpose. My purpose of life has never been perfect. I was hopeless, alone, afraid, and I felt that
For most of my life I have had two parents in my life. That was true until about six years ago when my dad was deported and my mom was left to raise us kids by herself. My mom has raised me and my sisters the way she believes is rights. She has raised us to put education as our top priority in life always telling us to make her proud. I always just followed her rules and advice out of fear of being punished and never really thought of making her proud. My older sister, who I always looked up to, followed my mom’s very advice to make her proud of the sacrifices she has made.
My life is simple. My life is pressure free. My life is easy. There is no coldness freezing us to death, but only the warm texture of the sun giving comfort and light across the whole nation. The weather is always alive with bright green grass that never changes color. The best parts are the neighbours, the restaurants, and, the outdoor sports in my town, which is call Klang. Yes, the food is on fire at every restaurants in Klang, and I am addicted to fried rice, noodle soup, chicken, shrimp, curly fries, grilled beef. In Klang, sports has a value about a thousand more times than jewelry.
