Values Education 1 has had a huge impact on my personal values
Values Education 1 has had a huge impact on my personal values. Our experiences in this class forces me to question things such as, “Will I be able to do this?”, “Is that even possible?”, “What is the connection of this activity and how is this going to help me in my life?”, and a whole lot more.
The main objective of this subject is to improve the integral growth of human beings and attitudes towards sustainable lifestyle. Values Education 1 taught me that, you can develop your values through the help of the society, government, religion, and one’s own self. The most unforgettable activity that solidified my interest in becoming a better me is the first and last one. We have to plot or make a timeline of our daily activities in five (5) consecutive days. This will help us to know the percentage of our body or senses, intellect, freewill, and spiritual.
Back then, I am the type of a person that always have a journal with her. This is where I write my thoughts and feelings, and in there I have a tracker such us expense tracker and habit tracker. So plotting or making a timeline became easy for me since I usually do it on my daily basis. In this activity, my character has been improved, that this is just basically a composite of my habits. And I learned to at least balance the four in able to be a complete individual.
In every activities that we will make, we have to share it in our groupmates or report it to the entire class. To be honest, I really hate speaking in front of a crowd. Every time there is an announcement about reporting, I get scared and anxious to the extent that I couldn’t sleep at night and could not focus on the things that I have to do. The harder you try not to think about it, the worse it becomes. But after all the experiences and help from the others I somehow overcome it. But it’s been a long time since the last time I report in front of a class. That’s why when Dean Raquelito Padilla said that there is a reporting, all the feelings flashbacks or came back. But not as strong as what I have felt back then. During the reporting in Values Education 1, my hands were cold, my mouth and voice were shaking as I talked. I thank God I surpassed all of the tasks Dean Padilla had given us. All I did was to have faith in my abilities and to persevere.
The questions I asked myself during the start has been answered. YES! I was able to do every tasks that our professor has given us. YES! Everything is possible. You just have to believe in God and in yourself. All the activities that we had in this subject, this short-taste-of-infliction-but-worthy experience helped me develop a lot. This taught me that there is still much to learn about myself. It has also made me realize that personal enrichment will continue to grow throughout my entire life. Like what Dean Padilla said in our class, “Learning is a never ending process.” The experiences I have had, strengthened and developed my values. Thank You so much Sir! =)
