Do What You Love, Love What You Do
Passion & purpose
When it comes to passion and purpose, both can really be linked to each other because of how one needs the other to function in its many ways. And when both work together, great things are in store. The sky’s the limit!
And so for me and my purpose which would be my passion for mental health. Not just from my own experiences with mental illness but also from my education and knowledge gained from educating myself online and in books as well as experiences which had lead me to wanting to pursue a second career in mental health. More like “clinical mental health counsellor”.
Though a friend of my parents mentioned her daughter took a couple psychology courses at Sheridan which has gotten me thinking about checking our Sheridan’s courses and their programs in psychology. So I’m gonna do my own research online and hope for the best and see what part of my plan towards pursuing psychology as a second career in college will progress!
I fight for what I believe in! So just watch me fight and win the things I believe in. Okay so I need some work to do on that. But I’m getting somewhere.
Though timing can be important in many areas of life, it’s the choice of how we choose to spend the time we have on earth. Life is too short to waste a second not doing what makes you happy and all that contribute to your purpose. So for me, I’ve wasted more than enough of my life on doing all the wrong things and now I’ve been thinking for a while about making some new changes.
Two are working on two different articles on both “Mind Your Mind” & “The Mighty” which I have both topics for each one. And then after I’ve completed both of these two articles, I’m gonna get back at working on my biography project that is very important and close to my heart so much. It’s been at least over a year since I last updated it. And it’s time to get back at adding more content. I have about 2 years worth of content to add and who knows how long that will take.
I’m absolutely done with letting my own parents get in my way of my own happiness and purpose. It’s my time to make my life what I want and to continue building myself more from what I’ve already created as the person that I have become in the making of 2 years in recovery for mental illness. It’s my time to reclaim my power and control and do what I want it my life and my body. It’s my life, and I’m the one and only one who can choose and control how I choose to live my life, who I choose to become and what I do with my life.
And I’m here now to say that I’ve come a long way and I’m not gonna back down or turn back just because my own family doesn’t approve of anything here nor how hard it may get. Life is hard, but it’s my choice to come out of all this stronger and more grateful for everything I have to be. There have been some events in my life that have scarred me for life but I’m not gonna let any of them define nor destroy me anymore than they already have.
All you can do is use every step to move forward. Look at how far you’ve come and how strong you are. Something like this scars you, but you can’t let it define you. – Jules, Flashpoint
The marshmallow experiment:
It’s a parenting thing: children were given one marshmallow and told that they could eat it immediately or they could wait 15 minutes and get two marshmallows. The ones that could delay gratification had better life outcomes, higher & self-reported happiness.
