Its Time To Start Looking On The Bright Side

You can choose to be miserable, or you can choose to make the most out of the situation you're dealing with.

Kat Dingee

Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be miserable, or you can choose to make the most out of the situation you are dealing with. You can be dealt a really crappy hand in life, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept it. That doesn’t mean you aren’t able to fight for a better life, or for a better outcome. That doesn’t mean that you have to sit and sulk about what’s going on. In life, people are going to doubt you. They are going to look at you and judge. Don’t let them affect you. You can always change what’s happening in your life if you care enough. Put a smile on your face, and turn your unfortunate situation into an amazing one.

Believe me, I know it's not easy to turn a negative situation into a positive one within the snap of a finger. I know it's not easy to think on the bright side when you feel like a dark cloud is constantly hovering over you. It's like day after day, you feel like you are dealing with the same problems that you thought you took care of the day before. Sometimes, life just flat out sucks. There’s no easy way to put it. But, don’t let it suck. Don’t let the bad situation you’re dealing with, take away from all the greatness you have to give to the world.

Do NOT let the situation you are put in define you. It's time for YOU to define the situation. You were put into this world for a reason, and it was not to give up. Your parents did not raise you to give up when the going get’s tough. They did not teach you that you can’t dig yourself out of the hole that you landed in.

First, you need to remind yourself that you’re a badass. You can do anything you put your mind to. You’re creative, smart, witty, charming - I’m sure the list can go on and on. Now, use those qualities to your advantage. It's time to step up and face the situation you’re dealing with head on - no matter what that circumstance might be. If you aren’t happy, start doing things you love. If you aren’t being treated fairly, stick up for yourself. If you aren’t in shape, go to the gym. If people are doubting you, give them a reason not to. Many people all around the world, are going through an issue right now. And like yourself, they probably feel defeated. They probably feel like they have to throw in the towel because it’s time to give up. Here’s the thing: It is never time to give up. When life throws curve balls at you, catch them. Don’t dodge them.

You have two choices. You can cry like a baby, and stomp your feet until you feel better. Or, you can get out there, and fix the shitty situation you are dealing with. You don’t have to put up with what is going on around you. But it’s up to YOU to change it. It’s up to you to live the life you want to love.

When life gives you lemons, you can either deal with the sour taste or make lemonade. And the answer should always be, to make lemonade.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
