So sorry.... late with my post again!! I am in Washington again this week. The time difference always screws me up! Being late goes so well with my topic of the day, right?
I am a firm believer that the activities and such that we are involved in as children can really impact our adult lives. Even when these activities have no direct connection to our careers they still teach us things that can make us more successful and productive.
Growing up, I was extremely involved with horses. There were many responsibilities that came along with that. There was the everyday feedings and cleaning of horse stalls. I had to train almost everyday and the horses had to be kept clean. We even had to help bale hay... that's a hell of a workout!
All of this really taught me responsibility. It taught me to be a hard worker, to be dedicated, to set goals... self discipline. To be well rounded adults, we must have a good sense of self discipline.
I am on this subject because of my oldest daughter. She has never been very involved in any activities. Earlier this year, she tried out for color guard. She made it and seemed to really like it. The schedule is pretty tough, though. I think it's wearing her out.
The other day, she decided she was gonna quit. I was very disappointed. I just wanted to see her follow through with something. I think she needs this to instill the ever-important self discipline. We had talks about the commitment she had made. It effects all the other girls on her squad. The band director and even the principal got involved! In the end... she did the right thing. She's staying on the squad!
What activities were you involved in as a kid? Do you think they help mold you into the person that you are today?
