Frost Reflection Essay

1054 words - 5 pages

Frost Reflection People fear many things in life. But when they ask themselves, "what is my biggest fear", many people wonder. It might be death, failing a task, or even school midterms. I, afraid of many tasks, feelings, and objects have never been more terrified of one thing"¦ change.As I entered sixth grade at Frost, my fear had overcome my hope. The lockers, schedules, people and homework had all become a big puzzle to me. One with 1000 tiny pieces that I knew I could never finish alone. With my friends close by the side, I slowly pieced together the border, and found my "place" in the school. Throughout the year, I made new friends, but also drifted apart f ...view middle of the document...

But as the end neared, a dark cloud had hovered over me, and the hopes and dreams turned into endless nights of horror. I didn't know how to overcome it, for the change in elementary school, I knew, would not be as big as this one. High school would almost determine the rest of my life. But then, I look back at how I was in sixth grade, and realized, what a wonderful change it really was.The biggest lesson frost has taught me is to get over my fear of change. I learned the only way to get over a fear is to stand up to it and fight it, instead of trying to hide from it and dreading it forever. Since then, I have become more of an optimist, always smiling and never giving up. Another important lesson I've learned is that practice does not make perfect, for nothing is perfect. Along with the serious lessons, there were always jokes along the way. "Broken windows" are usually tinted. Don't touch things in which you don't know where they've been"¦ and most importantly, wish on stars, dreams do come true! Hanging by a moment, I realized, don't live the life to the fullest, live the moment to it's best, because tomorrow is going to come too soon. Looking back at the years at frost, I had gone through and learned so much, it has made me stronger, inside and out, smarter, and in general, a better person. Every piece of the puzzle represented a different person, event, or inside joke; it all made sense. As the pieces of my puzzle slowly began to come together, nearing closer and closer to the center, I realized the puzzle only came with 999 pieces, I would earn the last piece when I take the last step, crossing the bridge between middle and high school, another change, and one, that I would not be afraid of.Even though I might not be at this school, I will definitely carry the memories with me in my heart, always and forever. ...
