The past few days my family and I have been in Florida. While there I have looked back on my new school, new friends, and a new path that has opened up for me. I have learned that taking risks is an important part of life. Everyone gets scared sometimes but once you get past that you feel such a sensation, a voice in your mind telling you how great you are. I have felt this many times but I’m going to tell you about this one time. So here goes!
When I found out we were going to a different school I was torn. I kept begging my mom to keep us at the private school but she said she couldn’t. Soon it was time to go to school, a public school and at that time I didn’t like public schools (this story also taught me not to judge a school by it’s cover). But the first day was okay! I had met a lot of people and they were nice. A week passed and my old friends threw me a surprise good-bye party. Then a month passed and I loved my new school more than my old one. I still had a bunch of sleepovers with my old friends and I was glad to have more friends added to my life!
So if you’re scared to do something new, take the first step. What’s the worst thing that can happen?
