I can say one thing for sure,” Life for me ain’t been no crystal stairs.” (Hughes, 1995) After receiving this assignment, I stepped back and took a good look at my life. I contemplated the different ways I have grown and changed. I began to recall certain parts of my life that may have had an effect on the experiences that I had to endure in life. With all my life experience, I am able to identify all three domains of developmental in my life.

I realize that my playing time is over and all that matters now is business. I am keeping a copy of this assignment as motivation to help me through the hard times, and my signature to all the things that I have claimed for my life. Bibliography Hughes, L. (1995).
