It’s been a while. I’ve been thinking more while writing a little bit less.
About my family and all the bad stuff that happened in the past. I didn’t forget all of the good things too this time, especially the things I’ve learned from them.
My mom passed on to me some great caring abilities. I’ve learned the importance of logic and critical thinking from my dad. My x-marathon running grandparents are still a good example of where strong will, determination, and consistency can bring you. And how important it is to have your own network of people who are your ally throughout life.
Both of my aunts along with my uncle thought me the importance of just being there, no matter what. My brother and his girlfriend recently proved that we also have some of the cutest genes in the family.
My high sensitivity is probably the only thing that was hardcoded in me, anything else is pretty much learned. And I’m really grateful for that.
My mom also thought me that you can learn new things no matter how old you are, so I’ve started to learn and recently got my fifth certification through Coursera.
This time it was Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential.
You “only” need to start, stay consistent, take frequent rests, push yourself through the days when you’d want to just give up… and understand that is not nearly as easy as it sounds.
You might be much slower than most people you know, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t reach your goals. Just keep them real and don’t forget that you can change them anytime if you don’t like the path anymore.
What works for somebody else, might not work for you, you really need to find your own way that suits you best. And there is probably more than just one. 😉
It also helps if you ask for as much help as you need. I couldn’t have done anything without many people around me and at some point, this includes you too, dear readers. I’m beyond grateful for all the help and support I’ve received. ♥
Oh, and btw, I’m no success. I’m still a work in progress. Just sharing the goods in all the bad.
Enough about me. What about you?
What are your strengths? Where did they come from?
