Live and Learn
Live and Learn!
I spent the last 4 years of my life figuring out this idea. We are all here to gain experiences and to learn as much as we can. I have finally made a break through with getting in the habit of practicing this mindset. If you read my other post “Not Just Any Life Motto”, you can learn more about the benefits of creating and living by a life motto for yourself. Anyway, I am a recovering perfectionist. I used to have a hard time trying new things and expanding my education/ developing my talents if I saw a chance that I could fail.
I decided that school should really be enjoyed and I wanted to actually learn something from my classes, not just to memorize everything and then pass them just to forget about everything I learned. This mindset of living and learning really has helped me in so many ways. I am not as stressed out, I enjoy my classes, and I am trying new and scary things!
C’s Get Degrees!
I began to approach my classes with ” C’s get degrees!” kind of attitude. I know… not a great way to start. But that thinking let me to this idea and realization that I can’t be perfect. I can’t get everything right the first time I try it and that is totally normal!! I tell myself before every class, “All I have to do is learn as much as I can. That’s is all I can do.” Try this the next few times you head to class or are learning something for the first time. You will get better!
