Today, I am a whole new person with a brand new mind. I have got goals and a sense of directions. I know what I want and I am doing what I can to get there. I tend to be more practical now than I was before about life. For example this was what I did most of the time: daydream about becoming a doctor to get status from my friends and family members even though I know for sure that I wouldn't like the job.
Now that brings us to what Csikszentmihalyi says about creativity as autotelic experience, which means to do something with enjoyment rather than for status or for money wise. In order to have enjoyment, there must be a sense of flow in the creative process. Csikszentmihalyi talked about the nine process of flow: it is simply base on how to put everything else aside to just focus on the project itself that one could easily lose track of time. I remember one time I was totally into rearranging my room that I lost track of time, not knowing that I've spent over hours to make my room look nice. Now I must say that that was pure enjoyment; now that I am more familiar with that word, I feel more comfortable saying it.
The reason why I am different today than I was before has to do with my beliefs and values. I've learned to value love. I've slowly started to realize that love plays an important part in my life, without it, I wouldn't be the person I am today. I've learned how to value my loved ones. I do so by showing them that I do care and treasure their companionship and that they're very important to me and that I'll always be there for them no matter what the situation would be. « mai multe referate din Engleza
