If you start to look for the good in everything, you’ll slowly begin to feel happier. Look for the good in the rainy day that ruined your plans, or the fact your alarm went off late, or that pair of jeans you couldn’t find, that text you didn’t get. Those things bring us down, but no one ever stops and looks at it differently. What if the rainy day saved you from being hurt physically or emotionally for a long time? You’d rather be at home on your couch sitting out the storm and being angry for a few hours then hurt for months on end, right? What if that alarm that didn’t go off saved you from being in a car crash? Did that alarm malfunction save your life? Those jeans you couldn’t find didn’t want to be found because they were going to rip in front of your friends during your presentation. You wouldn’t want to be embarrassed! What if that text you didn’t get made you realize you can do way better than that person who didn’t text you because you weren’t worth their time. That text you didn’t receive saved you from being emotionally torn. You don’t always need someone or something to make you happy! However, those things are nice, but you don’t always need them. If you start to appreciate being able to wake up in the morning, walk, drink coffee or tea, walk out the door and smell the fresh spring air and actually have the opportunity to go to school or work, you’ll see things differently. When you come home, be happy you have a home. When you walk through the door be thankful you have a door to walk through. It means you have a place to stay; you have a home. If you don’t consider it a home, make the best of it! Once you try and make the best of it, it will become a home. Instead of plopping down and watching T.V. and complain about how you should be more athletic, or artistic or whatever you want to be, go out and do it! The opportunity is there in front of your face! Take advantage of every opportunity you get, it’ll make you happy in the future and you’ll be able to say, “I’m glad I took that chance a long time ago.” See, little things build up and build up and eventually amount to something great. People think that happiness should just smack them in the face or something, but that’s not always true. You have to do things for yourself! You have to help yourself in order to get from one place to another. Things won’t always be handed to you. Things won’t always be easy. But hey, if it’s easy it wouldn’t be worth it, now would it?
I was thinking earlier and I just kept typing and typing and this is what happened
Lana Del Rey songs make me feel sad and nostalgic about things that haven’t happened to me
Powerful & creative imagery
the food and education made me sad.
I have always been fascinated by these ‘world of 100 people’ things, I remember spending hours thinking through the ones on a poster at church when I was 9 or so. It really, really makes some really important stuff so blindingly clear, in numbers we can understand. And it should, I hope it does, inspire us to act.
i hope im one of the 7 people with a computer
It’s sad that more people would have a computer that an education
well, hold up. that’s college education, not public education or trade school. but even then, it’d probably only be in the 20s or 30s.
