Writing these entries and sticking to my virtues was a challenge. I had to constantly remind myself why I was doing this and what was my purpose. My virtues were difficult ones as well as i chose to work on tranquility, silence, order, dedication, engagement. These were the aspects in my life I thought I could improve on. People have told me I need to be more quiet or more engaged so these words inspired me.

The virtue I struggled with most was dedication. As of late i wasn’t putting all my effort into school and was messing around a lot. I wanted to change this and become more focused and dedicated. Before I left for school I would always tell my self, be dedicated today. Waking up and saying this set a tone for the day and I feel really helped me. In soccer practice instead of doing the bare minimum I would do the extra mile so I could improve. I really started to see results as the days went on. It was super hard though. There were days when I just felt unmotivated and didn’t want to do anything.

My most successful virtue was tranquility. I felt like this was going to be the hardest for me but in the end did well. During school i was relax and not messing around a ton. This got me in less trouble and made me feel like a more respectable person. At my soccer instead of freaking out when my teammate messed up I was calm and said it was ok.

These virtues were not easy to keep up with. It was a constant battle to remember them. I would feel guilty if I didn’t follow through with my virtues because I said I would complete them. In the end I definitely became more calm and dedicated to even the little things in life. I will carry over these virtues into the rest of my life and maybe even get new virtues I can improve on.
