“Tiger head 🐯 and snake tail 🐍” 虎頭蛇尾 (pinyin pronunciation: hǔ tóu shé wěi) in Chinese, is something my mother often times describes me. It means that I am not consistent in my work habits. I start out strong and motivated, but at the end I either don’t finish what I started or I complete the task half-heartedly.
I am starting to learn that it’s not so wrong to try new things from time to time. It’s a way to explore my sense of self and to build my character.
This is the start of my something new. I want to jot down my thoughts and experiences that I have learned so maybe later in life when I read back what I wrote, I will be say to myself, “wow, I was courageous enough to explore new territories.
