Time flies regardless of how we use it. For some reason, the past 30 days felt like 30 minutes. There was so much going on in my life. I started my learning career in a different country by myself. Unfortunately, I am a procrastinator with ambitions. At the start of my CAP program, I made a plan to do some pre-reading for the upcoming Arts One program. Right now, I have barely finished the introduction for my first book. For some reason, I felt lost. I find it harder and harder to pick up my pen and finish my homework. Earlier today, I spent hours reading fictions despite the fact that I had a reading comprehension to finish.
Then, all of a sudden, I remembered a famous quote from Hamlet: “You won’t budge until I hold a mirror up to you, where you will see what’s deep inside you.” While reciting this line and some other quotes, I stopped reading fiction and took a deep breath. In my mind’s eye, I could see some monologues which I memorized in grade 9. While I was looking for more quotes, a line appeared from nowhere, ” You are the same person you were and always have been.”
This sentence might make no sense and sound redundant to you. But as I kept repeating it to myself, it had a dramatic effect on me. All the troubles I had, including my procrastination, gradually disappeared. For less than half a second, I felt like I was on sacred ground. When this feeling disappeared, I could think of nothing else to do other than share this experience with you which I just did.
