Your Life, Your Choice for Second Year Students of CCC ACE

You woke up this morning. Hopefully you gave thanks for your existence. Hopefully you realized that you are fortunate to be here. You have a purpose in life and you probably are still wondering what it is. You may not even know yet what you will do when you graduate from school. At this point in your life you are floating. You are ENJOYING YOUR YOUTH! You have a right to that enjoyment. It IS going to be the best days of your life. For now you move from side to side and you are among friends and colleagues who share many things in common with you: teachers, assignments, projects, tests and examinations, going to parties and just having a great time!

Stop a minute and think. Are you doing all you can to make your life, at this time, worthwhile? Many of you believe you should leave certain things to other people. "I didn't do it. Why should I have to fix it or clean it?" That attitude is NEGATIVE. It is time for us to do things because they are POSITIVE. We should do things that make us feel right.

So, as of this instance try to CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE. Become a caring, loving and deserving person. It may seem insignificant. There may be no praise for it. It may go unnoticed. All the little things and the big things that you do in life are not always going to be obvious to others. However, YOU know what you do and how you do it. YOU will feel a sense of worth. YOU will feel a sense of pleasure. YOU will become a whole person. After all does it really matter what others think about you? Does it really matter if the world knows what you do? Hopefully you are above that. Hopefully you realize that it is how you feel about the things that you do that will give you the sense of being all that you can be!

Remember you can't be a youth all your life. You will grow up and the real world may hit you in the face if you are unprepared for it. That is a reality many have had to deal with. I have actually had graduates and drop outs come back and tell me that now they realize what I meant when I said "Your school days are the best days of your life."

So listen to those in authority. Try to follow what they say and do what is asked of you. They are just trying to get you to GROW. They are preparing you for the future.
It can become a future filled with success and happiness OR it can be one of disappointments, bitterness and hardships.

Live your life to the fullest. Be a person of action and goodness. Give love to those around you. Watch what you say and how you say it. Watch what you do and how you do it. Begin to be that person that you can be proud of. It WILL be rewarding, trust me.
