Today’s episode of love week has to do with love of life. Or living a life you love!
I’m going to be honest. This is still something I’m working on. Yes, I can usually come up with three positive things that happened on any given day. But oftentimes I feel like I’m killing time, waiting for the next big thing, when really I ought to be going out there and making that thing happen. I’m really excited about a lot of the classes I’m going to start taking, but I’m still fairly aimless… yes, that’s probably normal for a 20-year-old, but recently I feel like the days are all passing me by and I’m not sure I’m entirely living them. It’s something I’ve been working on. To be sure, finding the small things in the everyday that make me light up are reminders of why I should be loving life.
Some examples? The sun. Sunsets. Flowers. The stars. I’m fairly obsessed with stars, actually… A smile from a stranger. A compliment. Feeling as though I’ve made someone’s day. Just the little things, you know?
In honor of this, and it being Thursday, I bring you another “three-good-things Thursday”…
1) I survived two midterms today. That was QUITE an accomplishment let me tell you… I didn’t really study quite as well as I probably should have but at this point I’m just glad they’re over! (Also, this is why I was absent yesterday… whoops!)
2) Remember my job? Well, I get paid $275 today. That means I can justify my purchase of 3 bags of peanut flour (side note: I went to TJ’s last Thursday and there were 9 packages left. I went yesterday and there were 4. Needless to say I bought 3 of them…)
3) Went to check my mail today and lo and behold…
Filled with delicious raw nut buttery goodness! :) I’m super excited to try all of them and can’t decide where to start… But I will totally keep you updated! ;)
Sorry for the lackluster post… I have gotten about 12 hours of sleep in 3 nights and I’m kind of a grandma/toddler and need at least 7/night. So that’s definitely inadequate. And now I’m off to my job again, so no rest in sight… The prospect of Trader Joe’s will keep me working hard though, not to worry! I had all these plans this week of getting creative in the dorm kitchen but once again life got in the way… Soon, I promise!
What do you love about life? What little things make you happy? What are your three-good-things?
