It is the December 28th, 2017, my 80th day of Inspiring Challenge.
Here are five takeaways/reflections about how I start the challenge and keep it through. I hope people who want to set a goal and stick on it, could benefit from my experience.
Today is another tearful daily inspiration thought. 792 words, 6 minutes reading.
Once upon a time, there is an emperor cares about nothing except wearing beautiful clothes and dressing up. Two weavers came to the emperor and promised a new suit of most beautiful clothes. However, the clothes are invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, no one dares to say that they do not see any suit of clothes on him for fear that they will be seen as “unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent”.
Finally, a child, only a child cries out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”
Sounds familiar? Exactly, it is the story of The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Why do I tell you this story? How’s this story related to my title eating disorder?
The post is 387 words and requires a 3-minute reading.
I am keeping track of every day’s inspiration but I feel today’s thought aka poem, aka daily prompt, worth to a single post.
It’s my third years in UT
I have still not regretted, that
I came to UT and started this a journeyA
As a Mental Health Peer Educator
After understanding the limited resources school have
And how many it has done and still been doing I appreciate
As a Theatre for Dialogue Facilitator
For two month working with four
Fantastic similar-minded people
For an interactive performance about relationship
First time realizing the power of theatre
Release my intellectual thinking and emotional empathy
First time I feel a sense of
So used to think Mccombs Business School’s cruel and competitive
Struggled, complaining to run away
Start to thankful for being a member
Those networking and job recruiting events
Simply a life skill technique that everyone
should learn to know more people, get more resources
When still in my childhood
I was the king of the kids
But deep inside, there is an actor dream
shouting to be heard
When growing to be an adolescent
I studied, studied
Not for me
but for teachers for parents for reward
What about now?
Never give up a chance and still a perfectionist
Simply because I have so many, so many
Things want to experience, emotions want to embody
And then, share to my lovely world
I don’t know why people are telling you
You cannot sell the cow and drink the milk
You have to narrow down
You have to focus on one thing
The truth is you can
You could always have more than one cow
But you must only have a few
But you must have the courage give up milk
To give up milk
To be honest
I still cannot do it now
And don’t know when
I will do it
I don’t want too soon
To define myself
Hope the world gives me a bit more time
A bit more chances
A bit more space
So that I could experience more things
Explore more possibilities
Imagine yourself is going to have a terrific weekend! Would you rather go to the beach, hang out with a bunch of friends, throw a large party, and have fun? Or simply stay at home, sip a cup of coffee, watch some Netflix for the whole day?
