Your own path in LIFE...

“I want you to find your own walk” is a quote from the Dead Poet’s Society. This quote tells me that I must choose a path that I am going to walk for the rest of my life. It tells me that I should choose a path that is best suitable for me and what I believe. I take this quote and reflect on it in my life because this is  a very important year for me and this quote just sums it up into a few words.
As I graduate from grade school and focus on high school , I must choose a path that is right for me. I must choose a path in life that I won't regret when I get older. I am the only person that can make this decision. By reading this quote “I want you to find your own walk” over and over again , It tells me that I shouldn't follow the person in back of me or in front of me. I should create my own path and walk it with my head held high with no regrets.  High school comes with peer pressure, cliques, hard work and life changing decisions. I believe that by choosing to walk the road that was less traveled on, I will become more successful in life. My goal in life is to become a Pediatrician, a medical doctor who manages the physical and mental health of a child. When I was about four or five years old, I made this decision and have always stuck with it. I have always wanted to work with children because that has always been my natural instinct.
I believe that 80% of Americans have goals in life and don’t follow up because of the path that they have chosen when they were my age. I don’t think that they believed that they could make it that far and look where it has gotten them. From the day that I was born, I was told to believe in anything that I set my mind to. I believe that I will chose the right path in life because of the type of mindset that I have and how focused I am.
There are so many people that believe in me and know that I can do what I set my mind to. I don't want people to walk in my shoes and understand me, I want people to look at the path that I am choosing and create their own way of life. I am creating my own way of life and my future because I know whatever I do, it will always be successful. Have you found  you own walk and created your own path? I have!

    Dear Assata,

    If you could chose right now, what would be your path? I would pick the path of a pilot!
