It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. ~ Aristotle.
One thing I can confidently and proudly write about myself is my intelligence. I am smart. I am capable of much. However, I am also lazy, impulsive and impatient. If I was more patient and did not procrastinate; I know I could have been anything I wanted. At high school I was aiming for journalism. But, I also had a great brain for maths and science and could have done anything.
Being intelligent is not everything, life skills are important also. I am still learning life skills. You never stop there. Each time I visit an art gallery, or overcome adversity, travel, read a great book, or have an interesting conversation; I am still learning.
And, like Aristotle, I make up my own mind. I am not influenced easily but am open minded and willing to take everything in, weigh it up and than make my own decision.
