Everything Happens For A Reason

Count your blessings.

Everything Happens For A Reason

We all have our stories, our "low points," But all to often I think people forget how truly blessed they are. I believe it's hard for people to understand that just because something didn't work out doesn't mean that it's a bad thing. Think about it, I mean truly think about it. 90% of the things you've lost in your life up to this point you've been fine, if not better without. Whether it taught you a lesson or was just a negative energy in your life before you have grown from the experience. God never gives you a battle you can't handle.

Instead of thinking about the things that seem be to pulling you down or holding you back, think of all the things that are going right. So you failed one test, I'm sure you're still passing the class and can bring the grade up. So your boyfriend broke up with you, that means you're one step closer to finding the one. To every down side there is also an up. Even if you think it's the end of the world, I promise it's not.

If that doesn't work, try looking at the situation from a different view. A more positive view. To see the new opprotunities that maybe open for you or the new experiences you'll get to go through. If you lost someone understand that maybe god needed them. Or that they are truly in a better place now and not suffering here on earth. If you got dumped understand that it wasn't meant to be. You will find someone who would never hurt you the way they did. If you lose a friend understand that they were probably toxic to your life in some way shape or form so it's better that they're gone. There is more than one way to look at situations, try to see them all and maybe you will get a better understanding.

Through all of this, thinking positive and viewing things from a different angle, remember to count your blessings. You have things and people in your life that you should thank god for every single day as long as you are breathing. Sometimes it's hard to see the good in the bad but it's there. Don't take for granted the things or people that give you the world and give you life. They won't be there forever and when they're gone it's to late to tell them you appreciate them. Treat the people who care about you and are there consistantly with the same love they give you. Count you blessings, before you don't have any.

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.
