The Good Life

Thursday, January 10, 2013

There are plenty of people out there waiting to call you a failure. A loser.
Don't ever give them the chance, & never say it of yourself. Whatever signal
you send out, is what others are gonna pick up. You hit a wall...push through it. -tin-tin

My week has been awesome I'm telling you! Huge improvement on how last week was. Several great things happened to me, as well as some very good news from my mother, this week, even though college has been handing out work like candy, this has been such a refreshing week.

First of all, i finally got up the courage to speak to a quiet girl that is in my health class. She seemed to like me you see, because she always asked to sit by me, so I finally spoke more than "hi" to her, it turned out to be one of the best things that could happen to me this week. We are now chatter boxes with one another, and hang out before our classes start. I've also really begun to like this 40 yr old woman in my English class. She's very smart, but very nice. She likes me a lot too,

The second wonderful thing that happened to me this week was I've been literally transformed. I'm NOT kidding you! I'm literally a new person in my mind and heart. I was really shy around people, to the point that I wouldn't even open my mouth, even if I needed help...in one week i changed and now I talk to literally everyone that stops to listen. I run the ITV mics in our hybrid classrooms, represent the students, etc. I can't believe how much I've changed, another things about me that's transformed is my self view. I don't feel ugly anymore. I've begun to see myself as a beautiful treasure that was put here for a reason, and begun to carry myself this way. Shoulders back, head high, deep breath, long stride....I'm ready for the world.

The third amazing thing that happened to me was that my mom (I live with my parents right now) my mom is going to change her cooking and grocery habits! I'm so excited, because the choices we had around here before caused me to never eat right. Now mom is ditching the bad stuff and the big portions, and bringing on the healthy stuff and normal portions. I'm loving this switch, and can't wait to see her first prepared meal in this manner.

The fourth amazing thing is that I went into a habitat store (thrift), and found me an old model of a stair stepper. It's not the newer fancy kinds, but it gets the job done. I love it, and it works amazing! The man only charged me five bucks for it since he's a friend of our family,

This week has been pretty good so far as you can see, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the next week has in store for me. Be positive fellow sparkes, it's the most important key to achieving your dreams.

    What a great week! I'm very shy too, and putting yourself out there can be tough. I hope the rest of your weeks to come are just as awesome!
