Light bulb

My determination
My determination

 This light bulb represents me because whenever my light bulb turns on, I become open minded to learn new things to assimilate life experiences. What I mean by this is my mind becomes open to discover new features to better improve myself to become better mentally and physically like when I was young. I was eating unhealthy foods at a young age because that is what I was introduced to so I thought it was okay to do that as a daily lifestyle. For example, I would have eaten 3-4 bags of chips a day, soda, and a meal like pizza. So, at the start or end of 6th grade my brother shed me into the light of working out to make myself feel and look better. So, I changed my eating habits to add more nutritious and healthy foods like protein and fruits and drink plenty of water. Following these habits, I also made a habit to work out at a regular basis like 3-4 days a week. Which allowed me to become further active in sports at school I wanted to try like in basketball and football. The light bulb also represents me because it is a picture on how my mind looks like meaning that once my light bulb is turned on, I become more determined to work hard on what I stand and believe are the actions that will lead me to become a better human being. Which led me to where I am today and who I am today.
