día 22

Honestly, I don’t really know what has happened since day 19. But I’ll post three things for every day that I’ve missed. Doing this challenge has really allowed me to think about myself, my feeling sand really reflect on what I’ve learned everyday. Even when I have to catch up, I go back to the day and think about what I learned. There are lessons in everything and the sooner we learn them, the more prepared we are for the test.

  1. Go with the flow. Understand that everything is in divine order. Take some time to take care of you and relax. Get some rest. It’s so important to make sure you’re sleeping enough. I know over this break I’ve been sleeping a lot which has been so nice. My body has really needed it. Plus eating good homemade food and drinking lots of water has left me feeling like a new woman.
  2. Meditation and yoga is so important. I’ve really been slacking on both honestly. It’s harder because my yoga membership at home expired after the summer (I just did month to month) and then I did the semester pass at school. I’ve learned that I really have to focus on doing yoga. So for this whole week I’ve been doing a couple flows of yoga and I’ve really felt a difference. I want to get back into focusing on meditating and doing yoga everyday, because it helps keep me grounded. I think doing so will help me release all I need to as I’m approaching my new year.
  3. I received a grade that was lower than I deserved because of the relationship I had with the teacher. Though I was upset (it dropped my gpa down when it was my goal to increase my gpa), I realized that not everyone is fair. And that when I interact with others I want to be fair. Especially as a teacher. I want to make sure that I evaluate my students accurately, not based on any biases I have whatsoever.

post freshman year

freshman year was a year of new beginnings, changes and self discovery. I made friends, lost friends, and really just grew. I’ve learned to trust myself, my instincts, my friends and in the process. I rushed things, and I’ve learned that there is no need to do that. I’ve decided to go with the flow and let things happen naturally. I ended my freshman year with a 3.78 GPA, and I passed my Spanish Profiency exam (so according to the University of Michigan, I’m proficient in Spanish). Another one of my biggest lesson was to focus on what I want. When I’ve continuously worked for and thought about what I wanted, it manifested into reality. One of my goals for the next year is to get up to a 3.85 GPA, make new friends and grow spiritually. I plan to continue doing yoga, which really just helps me stay balanced. I am going to join organizations that will allow me opportunities to grow! I look forward to meeting to the woman I’m becoming.
