“Give myself more credit.”
Humility is fucking dead and it gets you nowhere fast.
- Be present.
- Be myself.
- Leave the past behind me.
- Start DOING.
- Take small steps towards my goals.
- Give myself more credit.
- Explore new ideas and opportunities often.
- Invest time and energy into myself every day.
- Appreciate how awesome my life really is.
- Smile often, even to complete strangers.
- Set priorities and act accordingly.
- “You can’t change circumstances, but you can change how you react to them.”
- Make mistakes, learn from them, laugh about them, and move along.
mindofataurus asked: Be patient. Good things are happening right now that can't be seen on the surface. One of the most essential things you need to do for yourself is to choose a goal that's important to you. Sometimes it takes opening a door to get to a new place, other times, closing one. Find a peaceful way to release the past so you can move forward. Release a grudge every day. Release some weight tonight. Travel lighter and lighter. When possible-be light itself. No one else can play your part better than you.
thank you so much for this :-)
Last night was a lot of fun because I ended up at Illiano’s for dinner with two friends, then met up with another friend and her soon-to-be housemates at a bar. They’re very funny and also very Republican (they love their guns!). To be honest they were a breath of fresh air because they are really chill and unapologetic about who they are. I think I’ve been around politically correct (yet down low racist) liberals for far too long (I’m moderate if you didn’t know) and it was nice to have an actual dialogue with someone who had different beliefs yet were completely respectful and even enlightening in some instances.
After they left my friend and I stayed at the bar and met up with her coworkers. I popped my karaoke cherry and ended up singing to No Doubt’s “Hella Good” which is a fine choice for those of the tone deaf persuasion (namely me). I also had some random DKE and baseball bros cheer me on and then drop me off at a party, which also ended up being a lot of fun because the music was good, there were no wallflowers and all the boring people who wanted to talk and nurse their beers were outside not taking up space on the dance floor, which was much appreciated.
All in all last night was a good night and I have to say I’m definitely into the off-campus bar scene. It reminded me of my time abroad when I made a lot of friends that way and it feels like a nice little getaway from campus…that is until I see Wes people. Fortunately, only people I liked were at the bar last night. Let’s hope it stays that way.
Over and out!
So, my junior year is finished and I’m officially a college senior. Honestly, I’m not particularly happy or sad, but I am content. It’s nice that the end is in sight yet far enough where it’s not an all consuming worry.
