Ok folks, to start I wanted to update you that as of this morning I have been accepted into the Bridge program at my college and will now be leaving 2 weeks earlier !!
Time is going by too fast.
How am I holding up with all of this change?
Weirdly. I would say my mood is "Bob Marley chill", with a burst of anxious what-ifs that eventually show up like a bird hitting a windshield.
But mostly "Bob Marley chill" which is good I guess considering I'm throwing my adolescence at the wind.
So there is a picture I found on the lovely Pinterest this morning. I posted it on my Instagram account and shared it to the blog social media accounts as a #mondaymotivation tag.
It's strange how some things just sound so simple, yet we don't use them.
Of course, I have control over how my day goes (most of the time), I know what makes me happy; So why am I not designing my days to be the best for me?
On my Instagram account I mentioned I would create my own list today (instead of just preaching it to you all.) To make sure I get it done, I am going to do it right here, right now, on the blog!
In my previous posts I wrote a long list of things that make me happy.
I'm sure I can add more now, but I wanted to use a pre-made list as an example.
My average (summer) day is really not that exciting.
I almost don't even want to share my daily list because it is really that uninteresting. BUT, let's make it interesting !
I saved everything from my "happy list" that can be incorporated into my day, any day no matter where I am.
Ok, so clearly I'm easy to please. These may not be "bucket list ideas of extreme happiness" but they are important things to me that make me happy, and a simple and beneficial task would be making sure they fit in with my daily routine.
I did my part :-)
Now it's your turn! What makes YOU happy? How do you want YOUR days to look?
