Optimism Is Prime

Always remember to look at life through your optimistic lens.

Optimism Is Prime
Bec Crew

Recently I have done a lot of reflecting on my life and the things that I have happened. Some of them very good, some alright, and others not so good. I have found that in life it can be very hard to deal with the not so good things that have happened. You can tend to feel defeated and discouraged. At the beginning of the school year I was struggling a lot because a lot of changes had happened, some of them good and others challenging. The biggest challenge I had was not working due to an injury that I had that kept me from doing my job. I was also trying to adapt to a new school, sorority life, and rugby. I ended up not doing as well as I could have academically. All these events made it hard for me to see that things will be just okay. So when the second semester came around I had to fight my way to better my outcomes and to basically get right back up on the horse. This didn’t come so easily.

The hardest task was finding a new job. I applied to a few places, had an interview or two, but nothing got me anywhere. It was this point that I really had to push myself to stay optimistic about finding a job and to just succeed in general. Which in time worked, I was able to find a job and to get back to my “natural flow” of things. It’s important for all of us to recognize that being an optimistic person can get us wherever we need to be. Allowing for all the negative energy to overpower any amount of positiveness. But the most important thing to remember is that everything will be okay. Everything will work out. Call it faith or fate, but these things happen for a reason. Even if that reason is unclear. It’s important to maintain an optimistic mindset. This is something that I try my hardest to do so. But let me tell you it’s not the easiest, nor should it be. In the recent school year I struggled with this a lot. Dealing with a lot of changes and challenges. There were countless times when I wanted to just give up and throw in the towel. But I have found by not giving up, I really was able to appreciate the good things as they came. Such as when I would interview for a job and didn’t get. It never feels good thinking that you aren’t a qualified person. But I had to remind myself that I am, and that I have so many amazing attributes about myself. I had to believe that I would find the right job. And I did. I couldn’t be more grateful that I did. I’ve found that I truly appreciate this win more than I would have if I didn’t persevere and stay optimistic through it all.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
