Stop Telling Yourself These 11 Things So You Can Finally Live Your Best Life

Stop Telling Yourself These 11 Things So You Can Finally Live Your Best Life

Being a full-time student and working two jobs, I find myself getting down a lot. I'm super busy and stressed, finding myself feeling not good enough. But, it's time to get over that and start uplifting instead of dragging myself down.

1. "I'm not good enough..."

Instagram

If anybody is capable, it's you. You are more than enough.

2. "I'll never get there..."

Instagram

The cliche is real, good things take time. If you give up every time you feel like you won't get somewhere, you'll never get anywhere.

3. "I'm not smart enough..."

Instagram

Did you not earn your own GPA? Did you not figure out a way to pay for the school you chose? Did you not try your best? You are smart enough. Don't freak yourself out.

4. "Sorry..."

Instagram

Don't ever make yourself insignificant. You deserve to speak, feel, and think. Instead of saying sorry, start thanking whomever for what you feel like apologizing about.

5. "What if..."

Instagram

Stop that thought right there. There's no time to worry about tomorrow today.

6. "I can't do this."

Facebook

You probably think you're always right but you are definitely wrong about this. You can do anything, absolutely anything.

7. "There's no way..."

Facebook

If you want it, there's always a way. Try a backdoor, a window, walk behind someone else. Look at your problems from different angles. There's a way.

8. "I'll never be the best..."

Instagram

If you're like me, you want to be the best. Wanting to be the best comes with this incredible weight on your shoulders, but you can carry it. You can get there. It takes time and won't happen over night. Be patient, and be on top of your game, and you'll have everything you ever wanted and more.

9. "This is taking too long..."

Instagram

You are on your own path and that takes time. Someone may be successful for five years at 21 years old, or someone may be successful for over 30 years starting at 40+ years old. You can't rush perfect timing.

10. "I regret..."

Instagram

If you have regrets, live your life in a way that will keep you from ever regretting anything again. Don't dwell on it either, move on and make up for it.

11. "It's too late..."

Instagram

Better late than never, right? Even if you're late to class, go. Even if you're late to a meeting, go. Don't tell you there's not enough time to make it better.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
