I knew before returning to school that it would be hard to accomplish everything but somehow I will find the time to be a great mother as well as a good student. I live paycheck to paycheck to paycheck and I want more for my children and myself. By returning to school, I am able to show my children that it is never too late to go after your dreams. The only thing stopping you is yourself. I want to be an example for my children, so they will see how important a college education is.
Balancing School, Work, and Family In America it is important to have an education to enhance your job and provide a comfortable future for your family. After having my daughter I realized that education is significant in order to succeed. Working takes a lot of time away from my family. Adding school to my schedule makes it difficult to spend quality time with my child. The problem I have with balancing school, work, and family is being an excellent student, an outstanding employee, and a caring mother all at the same day.
I live to protect her, care for her, and attend her every need. I would give up my life for her; give up everything I have for her. Why, because I LOVE her and that maternal love can be beaten by no other. The love I have for my husband is also a great love, but it’s a different love than the love I have for my daughter. But that doesn’t mean that I love one anymore than I do the other.
When I am given a project or a paper, I always strive to get it done as soon as I can but still get the best grade on it. I believe that the fact that I was nominated to be a member of the National Honor Society shows my academic achievement in itself. It is difficult to narrow down the many instances where I have showed leadership but many can be found in my involvements in teamwork. I have been looked to as a leader and have taken responsibility for various group projects. I have discovered much about fairness, compromise, and responsible qualities that are required to be a "good" leader.
Throughout my entire life my parents have pushed me to my extreme in every task that I embark on. They have, and will continue, to expect greatness from me. Their expectations have allowed me to become a responsible person. Beneath their wings I have become a mature, accountable, and helpful adult. Throughout these experiences, I have learned that I must manage my time wisely and finish things on my own.
Each day of my life, I live for Jesus Christ.” "My life wouldn't be the same without the people that have shaped and molded my character. They have given me everything I wanted and have helped me succeed, and for that, I am thankful. I think it is important to be humble, and remember all of the people that helped you get to where you are, whether it's your parents, your siblings, or God. Being thankful is being able to let go of all ideas of self-importance, and instead acknowledge everything in your life that has made it better. I am thankful to God and my family, and my friends, and even my teacher for help me improve my life."
They thaught me that I could achive anyting with a good education, a solid goal, and an unfaltering determination. My parents want me to recieve the education they never had , an d just like my parents with me, I want to be a good example for them. I will make sure I do good work making sure to challenge myself. When times comes , I will make my parents proud. I thank God and my parents for giving me the education that I have so far not only in school, but as a person with values, responsability, and honesty.What I gained in the process of motivating my family, was the motivation to pursue my dreams , that I will be a Lawyer and manage on our own business someday.
There was a lot of responsibility and commitment. I had to be very organized to be able to continue participating in all these activities and keep up with my school work. My coaches were astonishing! They all worked together to help keep all students orderly so that we could take part in extra activities. I still use the organizational skills they taught me today.
I have to work hard every single day to maintain my path to success. I’ve also learned ways to manage my time and I learned to be more independent, not to rely on others and go with my first instinct, instead of others. One of the valuable things to me that I’ve learned this semester is not to worry too much about the future and take things slow and calm as they come. Beginning today, I already have an idea of what goals and what I would like to accomplish next year. One of my goals is to maintain good grades, which means I will be studying more often and putting even more effort into my school work next year.
One of my long-term personal goals is to bring up my children as functional happy adults. Teaching them right and wrong in a world so dishonest can be challenging. My husband and I work very hard at trying to accomplish this goal. Personal short-term goal I have is to maintain my organization skills while in school, work, and family. My family is very important to me and I do not want to miss out on important events in their lives.
