How I Learned To Overcome A Bad Season

A bad season does not mean it is a bad year.

How I Learned To Overcome A Bad Season
Running on Empty-Wordpress

As humans, we all go through periods where there are nothing but good days, and there are some periods where we seem to only have bad days. In addition, there are definitely times when there are days that are not bad, but they are not good days either. Recently, it seems like I have had several "bad" days and a lot of hindrances to my everyday life. I know that life is not always like this, but it has definitely felt this way for a few weeks.

The truth is that we all have some hard weeks sometimes. We go through some seasons of change. Honestly, these "seasons of change" actually suck. Man, I have learned so much in these few weeks, but it does not change the fact that the days are hard. For myself personally, I have had a lot of physical obstacles in just a month's time. Literally every obstacle somehow was a huge hindrance to my education. Since I am a music major and voice is my primary instrument, everything going on prevented me from singing the way I need to sing. First, I had a horrible cough that lasted over a month, and it was so bad that I could sing to my full ability. While this was going on, I actually coughed so much that I pulled a muscle in my rib. (I needed that muscle for singing). As soon as that muscle got better, I ended up in the hospital twice for a horrible and severe allergic reaction to something. Needless to say, those days were very hard. I spent the entire time worrying because I could not work on school as much.

While all of this was happening, I never once thought that it was a part of God's perfect plan. I never thought that He made me go through these illnesses. Even though I know it wasn't from him, God used those bad situations to create something good. In short, I learned how to overcome. In the past, I would have given up. For me, it may have been a season of bad events, but it was also a season of overcoming the hard stuff. After all of this is over, I know that I will be able to sing fully to my ability. I love to sing very much, so it makes me happy knowing that I will be able to do this again. It has given me an appreciation for music even more than I already do.

Even though the past few weeks were not my favorite, it does not mean that it is a bad semester or bad year. It was just a little bit of negative events in a great year!

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
