My School Year Goals
Hey readers! As much as I don't want Summer to end, it does anyway and I have to accept it. Summer is one of my favorite seasons, it's a feeling of freedom and confidence.
School can feel like a letdown and a stress magnet but it is also a process of learning and journey that you have to experience to know your full potential. Today I wanted to take a moment to reflect and re-envision my view of school and make some goals for the upcoming school year. This year I'll be a junior in high school, and I hear it is the toughest.
Although I'm slightly nervous, I'm excited for the upcoming challenges that I'm going to face (or trying to convince myself of that lol). I wanted to share some of my goals with you all and hopefully, you can do the same thing and we can look back at our lists together! :)
With that said, let's take a look.
- Confidence. Whether that is with challenges or meeting new people, I struggle with confidence being myself. I wouldn't consider myself a total introvert but I am trying to open up to more people instead of staying in my shell. I feel like I've done that for a long time but as I get older, I can feel myself becoming more confident around people. So this school year I'm going to try to be even more out of my comfort zone.
- Endurance. Again, I do have a level of endurance but I feel as if I'm weak in this area. As an athlete, it's crucial to have endurance and persistence. As you know, I play sports all year round because it's an important part of my life. I'm excited to progress in this area and I don't want to quit any more in all aspects of my life.
- To know how to Relax. Stress is so real and I struggle with being stressed all the time during the school year. I want to focus this year on knowing how to just relax and let my mind at ease when I'm feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders.
- Stop comparing myself. I'm pretty sure we're all guilty of comparing ourselves to other people and even comparing other people to others. I sure am. And it does nothing but make me feel awful for what I don't have and what I don't look like. I'm going to try really hard this year to stop comparing myself and just appreciate what I've been given.
