The Power Of Perspective Will Change Your Life

Lose your rose-colored glasses - it's time to look through the kaleidoscope.

The Power Of Perspective Will Change Your Life

The thought bubbles that flow from your stream of consciousness are the building blocks of your worldview. These internal dispositions are at the core of your identity. They are the projection of your self-image. They dictate your mood. They are the filter through which you interpret stimuli from the environment that you exist in. In short, the words that flutter through your thought processes hold more significance than you think – that's why it is so important that you become aware of them.

You will manifest the narrative that you create.

Engaging in positive self-talk cannot be reduced to just "having a positive attitude." Seeking positivity in your thoughts will actually foster positivity in your real life. By holding yourself accountable for how you think, you will be empowered to make tangible changes in your life that will lead to genuine fulfillment in all that you do. The words that compose the narrative of your mind are like a screenplay for your life, otherwise known as your perspective. As the old adage goes: "if you think it is so, it is so."

Make your perspective your power.

Falling down the "what if" rabbit hole of negativity is a common obstacle that everyone faces from time to time. When your thought process takes on this form more often than not, then it's time to adjust your sails. Even though it may sound like you need to experience some profound revelation to shift your perspective, it can actually be easier than you think. Altering the way that you view things can be achieved by stepping back and listening to the insight of others. By removing yourself from the situation that you are in, you can take on an outsider's point of view and adapt to whatever life throws at you. By changing your perspective for the better, you will possess the power to transform your life.

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

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.
