I haven’t started a project that is due in two days. I have been assigned another project that is due the same day. I failed my first government test, along with the rest of my class. I have no letters of recommendation to give to my guidance counselor. I need to fill out one last form for college and give it to my teachers. I still have yet to study for my ACT that is coming up. I didn’t have time to write you all anything Monday night because of work and homework. I have only gone to practice once this week, and I probably won’t make it again tomorrow.Â
This Monday I was able to talk to one of my favorite fellows. I told him about my excitement for college even though the explanation was already shown on my face and smile. We discussed expectations, different experiences, and what is yet to come. He told me that when he was in college, he believed that failure was not an option. What a simple saying. Yet, it was exactly what I needed to hear at that time. It got me thinking…
It is only the beginning.
Which is one of many reasons to not say “I am done”, and keep moving forward. To follow a dream, you must first have the determination to take the lead in your life.Â
I have been learning everyday this week the importance of priorities. I also have learned that it is okay to ask for help. The pride that is within never wants to ask for help, but it isÂ the disappointment that conquers ego.Â Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but more as a strength. I believe that it is brave for a person to fully trust another when they are in need. It is brave, and it is also is a validation of true friendship.
With this being said, if any CrossFit Teen, CrossFit Teen Coach, etc. would like to send me posts for the blog, I would appreciate it! The world, including my own, needs more than just one perspective.
