Funny how fast time flies by, don’t you think?
I find that the more I think I have it all together, the harder life laughs at me and changes the scenery!
You know you agree! 😉
Anyway, yes, my daughter has now graduated from high school, after fighting through the last part of this past year. A funny story she shared with us about our two overseas moves in the last five years (for those of you unfamiliar with my story; yes, this happened and a big reason my daughter was so far behind in her schooling this final year!); was when one of her teachers asked the senior students to write out some advice tips for the incoming Freshmen class. (how freaking cool is that teacher, by the way??)
My daughter (bless her sarcastic heart; she may just take after her mum after all!) wrote the following advice: “Make good friends and get ahead on your credits and grades because you never know if your family may move overseas.”
okay, I thought it was hilarious…you may not agree but it’s all good!
I find that life can really turn your world upside down and then give you a good shaking still from time to time. Have you ever experienced this before? (hint: if you’re ALIVE and actually doing something in your life, then this is a given)
There is no way around it or out of it but you darned sure better move your ass and give it your much needed attention! I think it’s at these times in our lives that we are most vulnerable and need to really be vigilant about who we surround ourselves with. Your attitude about your situation (whatever they may be; big or small) will weigh heavily on the side of the attitudes around you. Don’t believe it? Think about the 5 people you are closest to in your life. Now, think about their temperaments and points of views on life and all things in it. Then go ahead and try to tell me you don’t see eye to eye or believe most of the same, yourself.
Whether you realize this or not; it’s a fact. Maybe you’re the exception to this rule…but I highly doubt it!
My advice to you today is to surround yourself with positive people and teachings. Read Personal Development books to help you grow exponentially. Get out and do some activity to boost your heartrate. Lift weights to strengthen your weak areas. Learn to laugh at yourself in times of stress. Be the best person you could be for today.
Trust me; life goes by regardless.
You may as well feel happier and enjoy the ride.
