I have been spending the past few days observing myself…
My habits and the ways that I react and respond in different situations. People often say that you should “Know Thyself.” I want to know myself so that I can strengthen my weaknesses and capitalize on my strengths.
It has been a long road… My goal has always been to get my college education. It took me a long time to get to this point… I’ve spend years of late nights followed by early mornings working my ass off at multiple jobs just to make ends meet. Struggling month to month, but always hanging on to HOPE.
Now I am finally in school and I made it through my 1st quarter. I am anticipating late nights and early mornings and lots of sacrifices, but this time around it will be for my studies to create a brighter future for myself.
I have admitted that I am easily distracted and I procrastinate too much. When I was studying this past week I noticed that every time a problem got really hard I would look for a distraction in the form of a video, game, blog, email, going to workout, eat, run errands, grab a cup of tea… Just anything that could distract me from solving the problem. And it worked I got distracted and the problem was still there in the same place that I left it.
I am grateful for the fact that I know this about myself now. From now on I will catch myself in the act of seeking a distraction and continue working on my problem until I solve it. If I cannot understand a concept, I will not give up. I will do my research and seek other sources until I understand it. It is time for me to develop some new habits.
Yes, it is a long road, but it will ALL be worth-it!!!
Peace, Love, and Blessings Always,
