I Can't Wait for Today!

They say time flies faster as you get older. Days become weeks, weeks become months, months become years, and before you know it, your life has happened. How do we make the most of each day before they become years gone by? I’ll never forget my English teacher who said, “The days are long, but the years are short.” I couldn’t think of a more accurate statement. 
I think the first step is to enjoy the moment; to never wish it away. The mundane activities of life are easy to complain about, but I think we can make a conscious decision to find something positive in each situation. 
3 Ways to Love Where You Are in Life: 
1. Never wish your life away. Don’t say things like, “I can’t wait for the weekend,” “I can’t wait for this to be over,” or “I’ll be happy once this it will be done.” Because soon it will be done, and the next petty chore, job, or test will be right there to take the last one’s place.
2. Have a good happy, healthy immune system. Moods can be very contagious if you allow yourself to be vulnerable to other people’s bad moods. Decide for yourself that you can be happy regardless of people’s personal lows. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be empathetic, but try to surround yourself with positive people.
3. Make a choice. It can be easier to be passive, moody, or down. Being happy requires energy and effort if it doesn’t always come naturally. But the more you practice having a positive mindset, the sooner it will become part of your daily nature.

  1. 5 Daily Gratitudes:

    1. New freshmen: I met a lot of freshman at the Activities Fair and at the Rush orientation. I got to answer a lot of their questions and it was very fulfilling to help them out considering I was in their shoes just a year ago.

    2. Laughter of my roommate: I love to hear other people laugh.3. Huge movie night: All of my sorority sisters gathered in the family room to watch “You’ve Got Mail” (which was provided by me—I think I own just about every classic chick flick!) We had the best time.

    4. Lizzy’s mom: My best friend’s mom came to the house to deliver homemade cookies. How can that not make you smile with delight?!

    5. Hot Seat: We asked each individual girl questions about her life (nothing mean or inappropriate though) and it was so meaningful to learn more about my sisters.
