Commandments of the Church

  1. You shall attend Mass on Sundays and on holy days of obligation.

2 .You shall confess your sins at least once a year.

3. You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least once during the Easter season.

4. You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church.

5. You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.

I think the commandments of the church are a good way to become closer to God and learn more. I feel like when they are followed it is respecting God. I understand the commandments as a way to be a good christian and show a good example for younger people. Even if its just doing something simple like going to church that still has an impact on us and God that could mean a lot. By following the commandment of providing the needs for the church can impact by giving a donation to the church that can go towards others such as the food bank or homeless shelter. By giving these donations and following the commandments we can bring ourselves and others closer to God.

The Holy day is Sunday but we also have other holy days that don’t always fall on Sunday.  These days are :

  • January 1st – The feast of Mary, the mother of God
  • 40 days after Easter
  • Holy Thursday
  • Good Friday
  • Ash Wednesday
  • March 17 – St. Patrick’s Day
  • August 15 – Assumption of Mary into heaven
  • December 25 – Christmas

Motivations

The Motivation type I am is Achievement. This Type likes to try their best in things and achieve goals and jobs.  There are a few different categories that fit into Achievement, like Independence, and just achieving in general. When you have this type of motivation you also have two motivation factors that go along with it which include, Relationships and Recognition.

Independence – This means that people like myself like to do certain things on their own. They do not like others opinions or decisions affect them. I am Independent because I like to work and figure things out on my own. I have a better time focusing and getting things down when I don’t have others around me.

Achieving – This means that I like to accomplish things through effort and hard work. I use skills, knowledge and my own abilities to create the feeling and motivation of Achievement.  I am this type because when I try my best and achieve something I am happy about is and it makes me proud that I have down somethings.

To Achieve this motivation factor I can do it through relationships. This can be done by talking to someone weather its a family member or classmate that will be willing to listen to what I have accomplished. I can also Achieve this motivation through Recognition, This means that I want to and feel like I need recognition for accomplishments that I may have Achieved. I want opportunities that will maybe lead to promotions and lead others.

My Knowledge Type

The kind of knowledge type I am is Physical Education and Language Arts. This means that I tend to like doing physical things such as sports or gym class at school or just doing things that tend to have an affect on my body. This type also means that i tend to like the subject language arts which is reading, writing and different types of wording and soundings.

In Physical Education people tend to focus on understanding and having a healthy and active life style. This can be done by exercising like going for a walk, running, sports and also by eating healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables. People also may be interested in learning how the body works.

In Language Arts this is where you can learn to read and write. You can learn how to right stories and how to fix them to make it better, and you can also work on your reading and becoming a more advanced reader. In language arts you can also learn new words and how to pronounce them as well as  different words to  enhance your writing.

My Interests

My interest type is Activist, this means that I like doing things by using actions and taking the risk to help others even in challenging events. This type includes two different categories which are social and realistic.

Social, this type means that people like to socialize with others weather it be through just talking or teaching or serving others.  Many people with this type would most likely have the job of a teacher, doctor, nurse or a therapist. I can see myself being this type because when I grow up I want to become a teacher and have the opportunity to meet and teacher other kids and show them things similar to what I learned or did in school.

The other type of Activist interests is Realistic. Realistic is more of the things you enjoy doing and about what you like about the things that surround you in life.  This type many included what type of animals or food or sports you enjoy. This also means you like focusing on different things maybe like gardening or colouring or using other things to rebuild or create things. I can also see myself being this type because I enjoy physically doing things and using what i have to turn it into other things.

These are some of my interests,

The 10 Commandments and Poor in spirit

The 10 Commandments are simular to the Be-Attitudes but they differ by the 10 Commandments saying things that you shall or shall not do, where the Be-Attitudes are telling you what to do and blessing those who do or don’t do something.

You may think that the meaning of poor and poor in spirit may mean the same or simular to the same things. When you take time and think about it they actually can mean totally different things. When you say someone is poor you are referring to them as non wealthy, and not healthy. Someone who you call poor can have a rich spirit, they could be happy and be enjoying life, and believing in God. When you say someone is poor in spirit it can just mean they are sad or upset and don’t look to God like they should. They can be rich and wealthy but just be poor in spirit.

Personality

My personality type is INTP (The Architect). This type of personality means that I tend to like working independently, or in a small group. I also have good social skills and also more likely to think before I speak. People with this type of personality have the need for room to explore and be creative. This type also tends to have trouble explaining things to others and like learning new things not teaching them. INTPs are usually concerned with things being fair and evenly split, they work better in groups when everyone does an equal part and works together.

Learning Styles

The learning style I am is visual. A visual learner is someone who learns better by looking at pictures, examples and reading instructions step by step. Visual learners also tend to write down lots if notes and close their eyes and visualize images about what they are learning or reading in their head. Examples of this type of learning is when someone is reading a book and visualizing the characters and what they are doing in their heads, or while studying to draw pictures or looking at the words very carefully many times. A visual learner also tends to remember people better by remembering what they look like rather then their names.

MyBlueprint proof

MyBlueprint can help me plan my future and decide what I would like to do in the future.  On MyBlueprint I have the ability to take a bunch of different surveys that can tell me how I learn best and what type of person I am.  It also tells me how I can control and save money for things I may need in the future
