Being A Ray Of Sunshine In A World Full of Darkness Isn't Easy, But It's Rewarding

I choose to bring positivity into both my own life and others, instead of succumbing to the negativing in the world.

Being A Ray Of Sunshine In A World Full of Darkness Isn't Easy, But It's Rewarding

Let's face it, the world is not always filled with sunshine and rainbows, and our lives aren't always either. Our lives can be filled with dark storm clouds, and it can seem like our entire world is filled with them. But for me, I've always tried to be a ray of sunshine that peaks through those dark clouds. I don't try to just bring light into my own life, but I try to bring light into the lives of others, too. It's never easy to be that ray of sunshine, but I do it anyway.

Lately, I've been trying to remove any sort of negative energy that's around me. My personal belief is that in order to bring positivity into the lives of others, you first have to bring positivity into your own life. You have to take care of yourself and do what's best for you. It's easier said than done, especially for me, since I've struggled with things like my mental health for so long, and even today I still do. I do know how hard it is to feel happy and positive when it actually feels like the storm clouds are rolling in. But I've used positive thinking to improve my mental health. It took years to teach myself how to do so, but I never gave up on it.

It's not just important to incorporate positivity into your own life but to spread that same positivity to those around you.

I've always had a love for helping others. I have a tendency to see the good in others, even if they don't seem like the nicest person. We're all human who needs help every now and again. The main reason I try to help bring light into other's lives, it helps me personally. Bringing positivity and happiness into someone's life gives me a feeling of joy that I believe can only be achieved by bringing joy to others. I've always been taught that you never truly know what people are going through. Not everyone talks about their emotions or struggles. I firmly believe that if I help someone and make them happy at the right time, it could be something that they desperately needed, and that alone is satisfying.

I think nothing is more important than to be positive in life than to be negative. Let's be honest, negative energy is horrible for us, and it's definitely something that we would like to live without. We only experience life, and I just don't see the point of wasting my own breath and energy being a negative influence on someone else's life.

Our world would be a much better place if there was no negativity and we were all kind to one another. I know this is wishful thinking, but what I do know is that I can personally make a positive impact in my own life and in someone else's life, even if the rest of the world seems dark.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
