Is it hard for you to wake up early in the morning and get to
school? We start at 7:15. just having to be here
everyday is hard enough, right?
Nobody knows better than I how hard it is to go to school everyday.
Iím in my 5th year of high school, a second time
senior. It was just so hard for me to wake up early everyday and
get to school. But Iíve learned strategies that have helped me with
my problem. The one I use for this situation is to ask myself the
question, ďWhatís good about this?Ē
Everyday I think whatís good about that particular school day. I
find something I like about that day and that motivates me to go to
school. Rather than being miserable because itís ďCĒ day or ďGĒ day
of the schedule, I now have something I like about each day in the
cycle. And if I have a day thatís not as good as the others, thatís
the day I plan to meet some friends after school. No matter what
day it is, thereís already something good about it.
I also have a list of my goals hanging on my wall. One of my goals
is to graduate. Every morning when I see that, it motivates me to
accomplish that goal.
