Fear can be a very crippling emotion. When I was little, my biggest fear was falling off of a bicycle. I was always afraid of bicycles because I watched my best friend fall off of one and break her arm. As I got older, however, I realized that learning how to ride a bike could be very beneficial, as well as a lot of fun. Something I did not know at the time, however, was that learning how to ride would end up being beneficial to me in other ways as well.One day, when I was about eight years old, I asked my grandfather if he would teach me how to ride the bicycle he had bought for me two years earlier. He looked at me and said, "Are you finally ready, honey?" After telling him yes, my

Personal responsibility makes me accountable for my decisions and actions, especially when working toward my goals. When a specific goal is set in place whether short or long-term, it becomes my responsible for completing it with success. Like parenting, I had to change my life-style to provide a safe, nurturing, and disciplined environment for my children. This required a life of security and stability by having childcare in place while seeking and obtaining gainful employment, and making sacrifices that empowered my ability to enrich my children’s lives.
