Viktor’s accounts are not only a good mark in history, but in viewing the human condition. The main thing I learned from reading Viktor’s novel is the meaning of life. Throughout my entire life I was always under the impression that in everyone’s meaning in life will reveal itself at one defining moment. Viktor states that in his novel, that the meaning of life is defined in every moment of living, and the second I considered this idea it was eye-opening to me. Every hardship a person encounters in their time on earth is defining of their life and of themselves.
He had always been associated with agbala; woman and titleless(pg 13). Through this, the reader's are privileged with the significant event that occurred in Okonkwo's course of life in which he grew up in in criticism. This experience has been essential in the formation of his character where he had always been haunted by the actions of his father and attempted to adopt totally opposite characteristics of his father. Although he managed to attain a position of wealth and prestige in his clan, he was always dazed by the fear of being regarded to his father, an emasculated figure that he associated with women. In effort to avoid this, he associated masculinity with aggression- the only emotion that he allowed himself to display.
Another major part of Nietzsche’s philosophy is his concept of “will to power". Will to power is known to be the main driving force in human beings is which is the achievement, ambition, and the striving to reach the highest goals and positions in life, it is one’s inner power and drive to succeed. The will to power does not add to the force, but it is the force. Nietzsche advances Schopenhauer’s theory “will to live” which he thought to be the force of living beings being driven by their will to live. They are afraid to die, therefore they have a force resulting in procreation, they will in another way continue to survive by their offspring.
That just affirms that music has a huge impact on the world and the people in it. My mood also changed a little during my “no music” time. I was very frustrated because every time I would go to turn on my music I would remember that it was my twenty-four hour period for no music. The day also seemed like it was so much longer than usual. At first I was so against doing it because I somewhat depend on it to get me through my long days.
One of the first things that stood out to me when looking at the poem was how metaphorical the poem is to life’s path. The title “Traveling through the Dark,” comes across to me as a metaphor of the long dark road of life that is often filled with difficulty and tough decisions. As one grows older, they are forced to start making decisions for themselves. They have very little experience with decision making, because their parents have always made major decisions for them. However, there comes a day that one must take control and independently make decision for themselves.
I went through every range of emotion necessary to be able to manage the emotions I have today. I was devastated to say the least. They are MY kids and I want them. It took me a while to realize and accept that they family that now had my children could provide them with what they need and deserve. Something I would not be able to do again immediately upon my release.
When you first embark on an unfamiliar journey path through life, you may come across different challenges that can impact your outcome in life. Like the old saying my grandma use to say “everything you do, every step left or right you take can make or break you”. For me it seems like I struggle at everything I do, nothing is ever easy for me it seems. In some strange way this gives me the courage to push on when the tough gets tougher. It’s a proven fact to me that in my life my “let downs” and unfortunate “setbacks”, sets the tone for a new beginning for me.
We all have conflicts in our lives that we go through, some are resolved easily, and others are a bit harder to tackle. And there are a few conflicts that are irresolvable. These kinds of conflicts keep haunting us all our lives. Unfortunately, I got myself into one of these conflicts. As I went into puberty, and self discovery, I had a very curious attitude towards everything that’s taboo and considered socially wrong.
Clinical Reflection Paper Throughout my clinical experience there have been several interferences that everyday life has thrown at me that have caused a delay on me finishing clinical, there were several times that I wanted to give up on not just clinical but on the everyday struggle of life. So for me my clinical weakness would be not allowing my own life outside of work or my education to steer me off focus of my main goals. Nothing good comes easy and without sacrifice and as God continues to wake me up every morning I am learning that lesson more and more. I feel like it’s all been a test, a test to see how bad I really want succeed. Another weakness would be confidence, I know I am capable of doing the work but sometimes I doubt myself and my capabilities especially in the O.R.
We then have to work for long hours under great strain and tension. finally we do it hurriedly and in a careless manner. It is as bad as not doing the work at all. Again, when some work is delayed, the time which would have been profitably used is wasted. Time wasted is time lost for ever, Hence procrastination, that is the habit of postponing things, is rightly called the thief of time.
