This is something that was engrained into me as a child. We were encouraged to share our feelings and be open. My parents bought me my first camera for my fifth birthday and my Dad always made sure I had one. My house growing up was messy, but it was full of markers, paints, musical instruments, books, fabric, rolls of paper, and buckets of crafts.
learningI remember being banned from question words as a child for several hours so my parents could have reprieve. So, they bought me an encyclopedia program and I would wake up at 6 AM in middle school to look at it (I love history). I feel better knowing my grandpa did this too...kind of...it's weird. I love being a student even though it is stressful.
I try very hard to be kind and understanding of people's situations...I think this is really important to being a special education teacher. It doesn't mean that I always think forest animals should come out and help people out of their situations or that I don't sometimes think of that vengeful moment because I'm human. However, I have learned to sincerely apologize to people and I try really hard.
finding purpose in my life
I think this can be very easy or very difficult depending on where I am spiritually. When I am close to God and I do the things I know are right for me I feel less distracted on the little things. It is really important to me that I feel like I am doing in my life what God would want me to do.
becoming a better person
I have to-do lists like crazy about ways I would like to develop myself whether it be becoming a better wife, doing more school, or becoming a better homemaker (this comes naturally to some people). I feel like I have many talents in many different areas, but I also want to make sure I keep developing myself.
