However, as I reflect on this summer's events (or lack of them), a few lessons come to mind and I hope to share them:
- Seize every opportunity. I think we may not extend ourselves enough as young adults. We are bombarded with opportunities to intern at major cities in America or study abroad to learn a foreign language, and we may toss around the idea in our head for a bit before dumping it into our mental recycling bin. But I think we should give a second thought to the things we may have thought of as unpractical. Make the unrealistic a reality.
- Grow up a little. Stop hitting the snooze button so many freaking times in the morning and just get out of bed. Quit making excuses about your packed schedule and just clean up your room already. And a Ramen noodle diet is just unacceptable in this day and age - learn how to cook more than Pop-Tarts! Sheesh.
- Reflect on what you have to be grateful for. There was a project that's been circling on Instagram for months - 100 Days of Happiness. The premise of it is for each person to find one moment or act that occurred during the day that made you happy. This should be a practice that all of us employ. I believe so strongly in it that I made an entire post on how to be happier everyday!
Any summer lessons that you wanna share? Let me know.
Until the next, my Fraps -
