- "a particular attitude toward or regarding something; a point of view"
As a person who frequently complains about everything on my agenda until it's completed, I'm fairly certain that this needs to change. By constantly making everything I don't exactly feel like doing a chore, I approach it with a negative attitude. This goes for anything too, school work, Resident Assistant work, Work work, etc. This needs to change and can be done with just a simple change in perspective.
I've been dreading the ending of my winter break because I felt as though I had nothing to look forward to heading back to Connecticut. While most people in college miss their roommate, parties, sorority or fraternity families, etc - I don't, simply because I don't have that. My life at school is consumed by school work, Resident Assistant work and Work work, leaving no room for a social life. But, with one simple conversation with my person (Kinoia, in case you've forgotten) I was reminded that my perspective needed to be shifted.
I have so much to look forward to, but if I kept focusing on all of the things that bothered me, or made me feel bad, then I'd never open my eyes to what I have that can make me happy. I know plenty of college kids make goals that they intend to stick to in the Spring semester (More like Winter Pt. II Semester) and by the time we have our first snow day, all of the goals fly out into the storm. That's where all of this matters - by changing your train of thought and to stop undermining your capabilities, anything can happen. There's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to think about skipping my gym days because it's too cold outside, but I'm also very confident that with the right amount of self-support, I'll make it.
I don't expect for my Joy to just take over the control panel (Inside Out reference - It's literally the best/most depressing movie I've ever seen) and be some overly positive, unrealistic person, but I do intend to shift my focus and pay attention to the little things that make me just a tad bit happier.
I mentioned my hair, and I've been thinking about going into that here on the blog, or even start making Youtube videos, since I've received so many questions over time about my hair care. Let me know if it's something you'd be interested in (or any feedback really... It helps!)
