Not to sound like a goody two shoes or anything, but I usually do this kind of thing naturally. Every night before I go to bed I go over every good thing I’ve done for someone else throughout the day and things that I did that I wish I wouldn’t have done or could’ve done better. I usually strive for at least three things of each every day. Finding things I wish I would’ve changed helps me stay humble and things that I did for other people helps me to stay on track to preparing for college. My thought is that throughout high school you should spend most of your time figuring out who the best and most genuine version of yourself is so that you can present that side of you to your college friends and fall in place with the right group. Some days I have more tallies in the good column than the bad and visa versa but ya know that is what the point of it is: to reflect on how the day was and how to make the next day better. Compared to the 15 Virtues, my self reflection was beginner level.
Throughout the week I have noticed that the one I struggled with the most was healthy body, healthy life because in the middle of the week I had a lot of stress on myself due to AP Bio so I tended to not eat lunch in order to use that time for studying/homework and of course I didn’t eat breakfast. We all know that isn’t very healthy. I also failed with order a couple times because I would receive random homework and then I was so brain dead by the end that going to the Purple Palace (planet fitness) was no longer an option even though I was planning on going. This also didn’t help make Healthy body, healthy life any more achievable. I also did not do too hot with patience over the weekend because I was very hangry and was throwing up a lot (probs stress and a mix of too much sugar in a short time span) so everything my parents said made me upset so I would just continue to give them attitude until they eventually stopped talking to me and then complain because they stopped talking to me. Ya know, normal girl mentality.
I was pretty average at all the other ones because I’m very go with the flow about life and it seems like Franklin was too. I mean don’t get me wrong I’m going to stand up for myself, but in a respectful way.
