Aedin Private School’s sixth grade Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Idols SA winner Paxton Fielies, shares with us her survival strategies for Idols. What has been going on in her life? Why is she still a Darwinian survival mother? Is she a dedicated teacher or a lonely wife and mother? Why does she get stressed so much? Is there hope for change?
When I was in school, I wondered what I would become if I became shy, lost my hair and developed a speech impediment. Thinking about this now, I am grateful I did not have those worries then and I am so glad I have come through those tough times. I became a leader then and presently I teach a large group of young people. The biggest difference between then and now is, I am not lonely. In fact, I have Idols. I do not need the lonely feeling anymore.
It’s been close to two decades since I became an Idol. I am humbled and honored. I feel like I have accomplished something that many individuals could only dream about at that time. I have learned so much from so many other great teachers and mentors.
Many of my students have asked me questions regarding their own Idols. I receive so many emails concerning the different types of Idols they have. One question is from a little boy who wants his Barbie doll to grow up and become an Olympic Gold medal winner. He asks, “When will she be an Idols SA Winner?” I can tell you she will be an Idol and I don’t even care if she wins or not.
Life is not always smooth and easy. It’s not always easy to do what we must do to survive. My own mother suffered a debilitating stroke that impaired her motor skills. Her ability to see and hear is very limited. I have watched my mother deteriorate over the years.
I have discovered that when life presents us with obstacles, we can overcome them and make our lives better. It is in overcoming these obstacles that we learn to grow and prosper. In the case of my mother, it took several years to be able to walk. What was even more difficult was to speak. Now, she has taken the next step and found the confidence to share.
Her story is a great example for all of us. When life puts us in difficult situations, we must rise above it to achieve some sort of victory. We must persevere and overcome. We must get back on our feet and move forward. She has and she deserves to be an Idols SA Winner.
Her story is a lesson for all of us. If we will not persevere, life will leave us alone. If we give up, then we are losers. There is only one thing we can do…come back bigger, stronger, and smarter than before.
idols sa winner shares her journey with us. She reveals the things that discouraged her. It does not matter how big her chest is, how good she looks. None of that matters if she has nothing left in the tank. This is what inspired her to find hope and a future beyond her current situation.
I noticed that she has changed since she was a kid. As she grew up, she became more confident. However, she still felt insecure. It’s because of her insecurity that she decided to change her destiny. That is why I believe this story is a must-read for all of us.
Idols SA Winner is a motivating text for all women. It helps women to understand themselves better. It teaches us to face our fears and be bold. It encourages us to be independent. It gives us the confidence to try something new and pursue our dreams.
All in all, this is a book I recommend highly to all my friends. It can help women realize their own greatness and find hope for the future. It gives them an empowering message to look at life and to deal with life’s challenges. It gives women the power to determine who they are and who they will become.
