Same Strategy, Different Scenario: Positivity

A positive motto to go by everyday

Emily Robertson, Staff Writer

So last week I had to write 2 essay outlines,  3 articles, take a history test, work 5 days out of the week, pay some bills, and deal with personal stuff at home. In addition to that, I barely got any sleep any of those nights, and the sleep that I did get wasn’t peaceful at all with my sleeping issues. I had a very stressful week and had so much but I knew exactly how to control it. 

The first thing I had to do was breathe and control my thoughts. I had to plan out what I was gonna do and how much time I would have for each thing. I put school, bills, and work first. I stayed positive about each one of them and prayed every night about what I had going on. I fought every obstacle and battle that came my way with optimism and positive thoughts and actions. I talked to people I trusted about some of the personal things I had going on in my life. I listened to music, spent time with the people I love, and I spent some time with myself and my cat. 

At the end of the week I completed everything I needed to do plus more. I felt good and was smiling almost every step of the way. Keeping a positive mindset is healthy for the brain and helpful when it comes to any situation. I woke up everyday, which was a blessing in itself, and I went to sleep knowing that no matter what was going on, it was gonna be okay.
