You Attract What You Are, Not What You Want

You attract what you are not what you want. If you want to be great, then be great.


Now, I have daily quotes come through my phone every day and eventually they become a bit of a blah. But this one really resonated with me. "Birds of a feather, flock together." You are more likely going to hang out with someone who you can relate to, who is similar to you. So, therefore, if you're confident, then you'll attract those who are more likely confident.

And that is so true.

It's unbelievable how true that is. Yes, you'll have friends who may be different from you, but mainly you're friends with them because they're relatable. If they weren't, then it would be so hard to hold a conversation. You want respect, then respect others first and you'll get that in return.

What you put out is what you get back.

Not only is it what you put out, but if you demand respect and you don't respect the people around you no one is going to want to respect you.

You don't deserve it. Period.

Think about everyone in your life and everyone who has left your life because you changed. The people you hang out with begin to change, because you became different. You grew and with that, they grew with you. They saw the change in you, whether good or bad, and they liked it and began to change along with you.

You grew together.

You want to be YouTuber? Then be a YouTuber, and you will begin to attract people who are interested in what you're doing. You want to be kind and caring, then you will begin to attract those who will care for you. People who surround you are somewhat your creations if you think about it. You influence them as they do you. Be successful and you will attract more success.

You attract what you are.

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.
