First and foremost one of my most treasured people in my life has been making personal strides to becoming a better person, parent and spouse. I’m impressed, and to make an impression upon me, well it doesn’t happen very often. People are generally better about pointing out the flaws of others, very seldom do they turn the finger inward. I’d have to say that I am a bit inspired. Why? Because I think this person is pretty fantastic already, and when they told me their goals/plans/ideas, well wow, there is ALWAYS room for improvement, I get it now.
Since our discussion, I’ve taken a small step in the direction of being better for myself, I started being more proactive with my school work, I’m more of a crammer and I get it done when it is the final hour and then I stay up, I get grumpy and want to say the hell with it. But not this week! One week can make all the difference, I mean just because I am busy, doesn’t mean I can’t get the job done.
I’m currently enrolled in a Public Speaking course this semester, I chose this challenge (and it really is a challenge on so many different levels)because it was not just a degree requirement/fulfillment, but because it’s a fear of mine and if this person I mentioned earlier can take such profound steps to do things that they are reluctant or hesitant to explore, then I should be able to do it as well.
So this is how we’re supporting one another.
I learned that I have the knack for writing all over again, and even though I am hesitant about Public Speaking (both professional or casual), and people understand me and they like and hear what I have to say, can I say that it feels good?!
