I think that most people will admit to the fact that life is stressful. Regardless of what you’re doing or where you are, life can get stressful and that is perfectly fine. I’m at a point in my education right now where it’s pretty easy to get swept away in all the stress and get bogged down by it. You can develop a pretty negative attitude towards the things in your life. The problem is, is that I’m also at a point in my life with all of this negative energy could lead to me messing up what I want to do in the future. It’s going to stop me from moving forward and towards my goals.
So, this year a positive mental attitude is a major thing for me that I really want to work on. I know it’s not going to be a particularly easy thing to keep going, especially when it comes up to exams but it isn’t impossible either. It’s not that I don’t ever want to be upset or angry because that’s just unhealthy. There are times were you do need to cry and feel upset about something that’s happened and that’s okay but I know that there are times I will get negative about the work or revision that I need to do without there being a real reason behind it and it’s that attitude that I want to put a stop to.
The way I want to go about this is basically, for every negative thought I have about something in my life; school, work, myself, I’m going to combat it by making sure I think or say one positive thing about that topic. I’ve always believed for that every problem that you have, there’s a solution and maybe that’s just the mathematician in me talking but I think this is something that’s really going to help me get through this year and it’s something that I want to carry with me for the rest of my life.
It’s so easy to get caught up with being negative and all the stress that’s surrounding my life that I feel like I sometimes I forget to enjoy it. I’m 18 and I don’t want to spend the rest of my life complaining about things that aren’t going right, things that are out of my control and things that really don’t even matter that much. I want to be able to enjoy all the small things and be grateful for what I have in my life.
So, here’s to a year of positivity and loving life.
