There is a lot going on in my life at the moment. I have finals to prepare for, personal issues consuming my thoughts, a condo that needs to be organized, and a kitchen that needs to be stocked.
Unlike the pleasant Atlanta weather, my life is not so pleasant at the moment. I have had two weeks to reflect on certain circumstances and I have come to the conclusion that: I could be a pessimist, or I can be an optimist, the choice is MINE. I choose to be an optimist, because the bright side, allows me to be more useful with my time, helps me get back on track, puts me in a pleasant mood, and allows me to project my happiness in others, which in turn, allows them to project their happiness upon me.
I cannot hide from my issues, or push my issues under a rug, but I can delegate the mental stress I devote to each issue and the order I decide to stress about each particular issue. So for example, my second year final exams are my first priorities. Second, When I get spare time, I should go grocery shopping, stock my fridge. Third, I need clean my apartment. I do not need to do an IMPECCABLE job, but I do need to clear the sink, wipe down my counters. After attacking these issues, and after my exams are over, I will stress about issues that will affect my mood & things that if dealt with right now, would cause me to devote less than 100% towards studying for my exams. After my exams are done, I will tackle them, surfacing/dealing with them now, will seriously just be a waste of time, and could potentially jeopardize my ability to perform well on my finals.
I hope you are not dealing with anything to serious, but if you are — remember choose to be an optimist. Delegate your time accordingly. Only love those that love you, and try to put on a fake smile, even if you feel like this is the WORST DAY EVER. It will get better, and smiling is the first step — I promise.
