Laws of Life
"Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it."(Anais Nin). This means that every person one comes in contact with has an influence on his life. One should never forget the people who go out of their way to be nice to them.
Influences others have on my life are the most important details of my life. There have been many influences on my life, three of which stand out the most, my laws of life.
One influence on my life is people. Miss Haferman is a person who has had a very great influence on my life. She was my first grade teacher.
She was the most caring and dedicated teacher I ever had and she respected every student as an individual. On the other hand, she had a very negative influence on my life. She is the person who told me there was no Santa Clause, which ruined Christmas for me for a very long time. Another person who has had a great influence on my life is Mr. Robinson. He was my first band teacher. He is the person who convinced me to join band, which
helped me make many great friends and also made school fun for me. He also taught me how to play the clarinet. Now, I love playing the clarinet and it could even get me a scolarship for college.
Another influence on my life is incidents. Moving to Tennessee was an incident that was very influential on my life. One way it was influential was losing all my old friends whom I had known my whole life. They were a big part of my life and I still regret ever losing touch with them. Moving to Tennessee was also influential because I had to make new friends, and I became less shy and more outgoing. My friends in Tennessee and my
friends in Illinois are very different, but they are all very great people.
Another influential incident in my life is going to FCHS. Going to FCHS also caused me to lose some of my friends. Even though I lost those friends, I made many friends who are really nice. I also learned alot about who my real friends are.
Society has also had a great influence on my life. Princess Diana had a great influence on my life. One of the great things she did that influenced my life was when she auctioned seventy-nine of her dresses and donated the money to charity.

|Laws of Life Essay - "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so” – William Shakespeare Do you think mistakes are always bad. And it means you’re a failure. Mistakes aren’t always bad as we may think, they enlighten us and make us be stronger in the future to do better things in our lives. I always thought that by doing something bad, it will make us regret our lives and our past; that it will make us be ashamed of ourselves but I have realized that I shouldn’t think that way. Mistakes are like levels in a game, you may be able to pass them without getting harmed and they will teach you something new especially when you overcome the boss level called disappear, you feel relieved and jo...

| The Business of Breast Cancer and the Pink Ribbon Essay - In terms of restrictions placed on a company by the government, America is surely seen as lax. For example, analyzing its current safety laws, not only have thousands of chemicals been unsuccessfully tested with no information about their repercussions on the environment or human health, but the ones that are accounted for are not evaluated when placed in a product. The latter is significant in combination with the current archaic policy of dose determining hazard, contradictory to the evaded scientific data that low doses, for instance of hormone disturbing chemicals, may be harmful because they impersonate the body’s own creation and synthesis of hormones....

Another way she influenced my life is the way she practically donated her whole life to charities. She was always doing charity work and donating money, and I admire her very much for that.

Everything that happens in one's life has an influence on him. These influences are what makes up my laws of life.
