Today is my first day in working on my five virtues (Order, Contentment, Acceptance, Self-Discipline, and Purposefulness) and my journey to some sort of moral better-ness. The virtue most apparent, today, was Acceptance. My day went un-according to plan. I was sick, which meant that I had to stay home from school, and because I’m going to be absent next week too, it stressed me out. However I knew that this was outside of my control, so I did my best to just move past it. The other virtue I focused on was Self-Discipline. Instead of spending my whole day doing nothing, laying on my phone, I tried to do things that I needed to get done, in hopes of minimizing how behind I got. Overall I think that it was a fairly successful first day of working on my virtues.
One thought on “Day 1: 11/09/21”
I’m glad your first day went well! I’m glad you were able to work on accepting things that are out of your control, (and also, accepting through that that it’s probably not best to go to school when sick!), and you were still able to achieve some of your goals by redirecting your focus onto the work you were worried about! I wish you luck on keeping it up.
