Find joy in the small things

We go throughout our lives with the same thing in mind, thinking that this is just another day, like yesterday, like the day before. We as humans are used to repetition and don’t like to change constantly. We like things to be the same so we know what is going to happen. We don’t want the unexpected to happen. But isn’t that what life is all about? Isn’t life meant to be full of new experiences, new feelings, and new people? If we go throughout our day repeating the same thing that we always do, life will become dull. But if you change one small thing now and then, you will see a big difference. Maybe you could ask someone how they are doing, or you could wave and say hi to someone you know in the hall. You could even do something as simple as smiling at someone.

Too often we are scared, scared of failure, scared of what others might think of us. We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes and dreams. Life is too short to waste it on being embarrassed, or being worried about what other people think about you. When you look back on your life, no one will know where you succeeded and failed, nobody will know your greatest achievements or your worst failures. After you finish high school do you want to be known as the person who was just like everyone else, or do you want to be someone that people remember. Someone that was unlike everyone else because they seemed more happy, or they took time to look out for others. Try something that you’ve never tried before. Risk it all, and see what happens.
