Whaddup Lions and today I will start the post by saying we recently reached the milestone of 50 certified Lions and 1k all time views like this is madness I’ve gotten so many followers over the past couple of weeks and I just want to thank each and every one of you for commenting, liking or even reading any of my posts. It’s your comments that make me want to blog more so keep on inspiring me and I’ll inspire you.
So today I’ll be talking about bouncing back but with one example in mind: yep you guessed it, it’s about exams. Some of you guys may be suffering through exams as well as I am and you’re incredibly likely to have a few bad ones, which are guaranteed to test your own confidence and I’ll be talking to you about my personal experience with bouncing back and its importance.
So here’s the story: Recently apart from today I had a few really difficult exams in a row and I came home yesterday feeling mentally drained because of how hard the exams were. Midway through the biology I started to have visions about opening my results to see a bad grade in biology and everybody around me being incredibly disappointed in me, which made me feel like like s*** during the exam and it didn’t help me at all. So yeah I went home and had a very long moping session, which I don’t condone at all because of how little it solves. After my moping session I just about gathered the strength to go downstairs and my mother had noticed how sad and deflated I looked and she straight up told me the following “Why are you being so upset about it now, I was so proud the way in which you put the exams behind you and tried to forget them because you know deep down that you can’t change it now, you’ve been telling me this ever since the exams started”. My reply was and I quote “I’ve had so many bad exams in a row and I’ve literally lost all confidence in myself”.
Then something in my head flipped…
I remembered everything I’ve recently adopted and that is. you can’t control what happened but you can control how you respond and the idea for this post was born. I realised the thing that I wanted to share with you guys today and that is. Tomorrow is a new day, a gift to learn from previous mistakes and potentially improve on what you missed in order to get it next time. This doesn’t only apply to exams but also in your every day life. For example: If you handle a certain situation incorrectly then next time you’re in that situation, you could handle it better instead of living in regret. Today for example I literally told myself the following this morning: Listen here, yesterday was bad don’t even try to deny it, but today is another day with other exams so keep your head up, stay positive and YOU CAN DO THIS
Remember if you ever get a few difficult exams. Remember to do your best as you can’t do anything better than that and stay positive and don’t let it affect your other exams. For example because I stayed positive for today I smashed my Latin exam and it went really well. Stay positive.
That’s the end of my post about bouncing back. I’ve had a pretty bad day today where despite my easy exam today I’ve been sad for reasons that I’m trying to get to the bottom of but this post is about bouncing back and ima do just that . As usual feel free to leave suggestions for posts in the comments and I’ll see you next time with another post.
