Being at home I always felt out of place; like I didn’t have a place to be. I felt like I was always different for not having the same energy as everyone, for not being interested in the same things. So when I came here to visit and spent a day at MPA, I thought ‘wow, I want to be here.’ It feels like a huge family. It’s great to see everyone changing all the time and working on themselves to become more conscious.
I can see that I’ve changed a lot since my first year. I’m much more confident about who I am and the things I do. I also saw that I was much more confident with myself when I went home after my first year here and hung out with my friends. Before, I wouldn’t really talk. I was really shy but now I’m totally fluent. I’m also more disciplined. If I have to do stuff, I’ll do it. We don’t really have a choice here so we may as well do it with a smile.
Another thing that’s changed in me is that I trust more in life. Before I used to question everything all the time and think a lot. At the beginning of this year I was reminding myself to trust in the universe. Trust in the universe. And everything just worked out; every single time. For example, I had a business test and I didn’t study much for it. I was worried that I wasn’t going to pass but when I got to class and looked at the test, it was the exact thing that I had studied. So, I’ve learned that you don’t have to worry all the time. You can trust that it will be taken care of. God or the Universe or whatever you want to call it, will take care of you.
