For my chinese homework, I had to rewrite my poem and decorate it. I wrote my poem about “I am a drum” I didn’t know how to decorate it beside during a drum. I don’t have a printer so I had to draw. I attempted to draw a drumset, and I’m quite proud of it and I even feel a little artistic. I also drew Conga’s which I also have a picture of, but I like the drumset more. What do you guys think?
You know what else? I came home from a long day or school today. and recieved a package. I was and am still so excited. I ordered two dvd’s and a book from amazon.com and I love it. I usually would watch them before I do anything else, but today, I worked on my homework and finished before 6. Which is very surprising but a good feeling. Then I got to watching one of the dvds. Tuesdays with Morrie. I have read the book so many times, I have many of the quotes and scenes memorized, but it is so powerful to not just read about it but see it through a movie. It made me cry.
Everyday, I wake up and ask the little bird on my shoulder, “Is today the day I’m going to die? Have I lived the life that I want? Have I gone down a fulfilled path?”
It is refreshing to hear these things. To think about what we’re actually doing. Are we helping the community, are we helping others or are we just being selfish and doing everything for the good of ourselves? Life is so much shorter than we think is it. Everyday we have a risk of dying and losing everything we have. Sometimes we are afraid to love because we are afraid to lose them, so we stop even loving to prevent hurting ourselves. That is not what we are called to do, what we should do, we should open our hearts to whoever comes into our life and enjoy the time we have.
