The feeling that I have when writing is a very joyous one because it is my nonverbal communication to express my emotions and thoughts without the critism of the outside world. Writing is truly an art that takes practice and concentration, and once you have accomplished this skill, you will succeed in the process of writing. To begin with, the experience that I have had as a writer were both good and bad. They were good because I was able to earn good grades on my essays in school, I made excellent pen pal friends because of my ability to write and I was able to survive my teenage years with the writings that took place in my diary. Writing was my safe haven and it always cheered me up because of the fact that I could transfer my thoughts from my mind and unto a sheet of paper that would hold memories of a lifetime!
I think it helps if you are interested in what you are writing because it will show in your work and engage the reader. In my everyday life I find myself writing various things. One thing in particular would be my family history for our family reunion. That was a very interesting experience. I took a lot of pride in what I found while researching and what my findings produced.
I have great respect for you. I wish that at least half the people in this world could have what you have on the inside, hope, ambition, respect, politeness, kindness, and most of all, a good nice loving heart. This work of art has changed my world in ways I cannot believe, its change how I look at things, what I am grateful for, and how I see other people. I hope everyone has a chance to read this life changing book. Sincerely, Your
As they may have done for others, books do increase my vocabulary. I believe this is the most important way that reading has affected my life. By reading, I can always expand my vocabulary and the ways to express my ideas to the others in a simple and correct form. As time goes on, I improve the kind of books that I read so I will ever stop learning from the pleasure of reading. If it hadn't been for books, I would not have been as articulate as I am today.
I’ve always been a person with a growth mindset, I can thank my dad for that, and this book just seemed to be a great fit for the type of reading that I do for fun outside of school ,so I felt it would be the best fit for me. As I began reading this book, I had already learned about the immense power of effort and where the right amount of concentrated and well preformed effort could take anyone. However, I had no idea of this “fixed mindset” which caused people to believe that effort was not as powerful, as I know it to be, but actually bad. I learned so much about the extent that the fixed mindset can take you. It can take someone who as all the talent in the world, such as one of my personal heroes Billy Beane, and force them to fail at their true dream and passion.
I feel that most of the things that I thought I was good at doing, I have become great at because of the way the information was relayed to me. The teamwork projects and assignments taught me that it’s ok to let someone else help me complete a task. It also showed me that some others are just as motivated and focused as I am. A lot of the classmates that I was placed in groups with were just on a hello and goodbye greeting basis
It was late September, and I was in second grade when I realized that I couldn’t read. This had a big impact on me because I felt stupid and cried most days after school. Reading affects everyone's life much more than they realize. Learning how to read was an amazing thing to happen in my life. I finally felt like a normal child once I knew how to read and could keep up with the class.
When I read habit two it helped me realize what’s most important to me. Writing a mission statement was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a while. I plan to use that every day in my future and I believe it can guide me to live my life for me, not anyone else. The Habit 3 Put First Things first was also was a very enlightening habit for me. It went over the small things in life that I normally don’t pay much attention to such as my listening skills, loyalty, promises, and small acts of kindness.
My first job brought a sense of success and joy; which had a major impact on my long term memory. Furthermore receiving my first job gave me a sense of independence; not only was I happy to walk into the next chapter of my life but I believe I was more excited to finally have something of my own. 3. The effect the event had on my subjective well-being? The effect the event had on my subjective wellbeing has boosted my self-esteem and allowed me an extra income.
And I’m very grateful for having friends and family that care a lot about me . My friends always tell me that I can light up their day with just having a smile on my face, and being myself. “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” (Emerson). It's not my intention to go about changing anyone's life but to live my life to best of my ability and fulfill myself and in that process those I come in contact with will hopefully benefit from something I do or say to them out of love and compassion for my friends and family.
