A Flower Growing In The Sun

Hello World I am Bertha, and I am a 17 year old Latina mixed with Native American.1048721_484919144920857_1487701324_o I am a senior at our large local high school, and I am also going to school at a local college for Psychology.

I myself have been through lots of life changing experiences through these first years of growing up. Going through so much at a young age, I decided to make my purpose on earth to try and make changes for good, not just for myself, but for others as well. Not only am I trying to make changes, but I’m also trying to be a role model to others. I didn’t always have a positive role model, and because of that, I don’t want to see others to experience what I have been through.

Psychology has been one of the most important studies in my life and because of this I have tried to surround myself around clubs, programs, and things that will either help me gain some knowledge of psychological studies or things that will make me have to use my knowledge of psychology to understand scenarios or people that I have been placed with.

I found this poem online that was written by another teen. It drew my attention not only because life changes but it’s a poetic thought on my philosophy on how I view life.

My life has been a movie; it has its problem, its happy endings, and its main characters. As I get older I realize more and more everyday that your movie can end any minute, so the best thing you can do is make the best of your life. Make a movie that you will be proud of even though you have made mistake and have ups and downs.

  • Bertha… your analogy of “life as a movie” sparked my imagination! and I really will think about your important message…one does never know when their movie will end, so make the most of each day, do good, see the good in others and celebrate each moment, whether it is an “up” one or a “down” one. Movies are powerful tools, they touch the lives of many, making us smile, laugh, cry, making us frightened or inspiring us to think… that is what your post did for me!

  • Thanks for the feed back Jo Ann I appreciate it. I am happy to know that my post sparked your imagination like it did. If you have any ideas that you will like to share about your analogy I will love to compare the two and even collide the two analogies into my next post.
