Abigail Parker 3rd period April 30,2013 Perseverance and kindness
Perseverance • Steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. • A time that I had to persevere in something to accomplish was when I was in gymnastics. We were at state, and I had to do a routine for the judges. The routine was really hard, and I had to persevere.
Kindness • Having, showing, or proceeding from benevolence. • A random act of kindness would be, when an older person is carrying groceries from the store but cant open the door, so you grab it for them.
Giving Your Best • Something I got out of doing my best, is feeling my best, knowing I did what I could. A feeling of accomplishment. • Yes, I am wholehearted in my endeavors.
Preparing For The Rain • To prepare for the rain is to be ready to face any obstacles or challenges you may face in your life. • A time I felt like I was in the desert is when I had a test the next day and hadn't studied, I wasn’t prepared. I felt like I was hopeless, Like I was going to fail.
Attempt The Impossible • I am willing to attempt the impossible in school. I want to go to a really good college so bad that I am willing to do anything. I want to do my best in school, because school sets up your whole life.
Keep On Pushing • When I am in the midst of defeat it makes me push harder. Makes me want to try harder. I am a competitive, so I have to win or at least give my best.
Criticizer Or Encourager • I don’t criticize people if they did their best. I encourage them and tell them how good they did instead of how bad. I try to be a good winner or looser and not make them feel bad or make them think their best isn't enough.
Past Effects The Future • The choices made today or earlier in life will probably effect your future. If you were to drop out of school in 11th grade, you wouldn’t get as good of a job as you would if you continued all they way through collage. OR
