Thought for the day: Things could always be worse

It has truly been one of those months.

You know, where everything that can go wrong HAS gone wrong.

Between family drama, stresses of school, pressure to have a social life and the hours I put in at work, I really have been exhausting myself.

I would say I am borderline depressed, sleeping every spare second I get, not noting to really face the day.

However, since I am always smiling and positive about things, I would say I am more in a funk than a depression.

To add to it, my original plans come September fell through, making the realization that I may have to go back to the States even more apparent.

After the extreme disappointment I felt the last couple of days, and really not feeling like myself I had a friend approach me at work asking about my most recent Facebook status.

He said that even though I feel like I have to work extra hard for everything, all the obstacles are something I can overcome.

He said if he could overcome his obstacles, at his age (a few years older than me) then I can do it.

He is completely spot on. I need to remember things could always be worse, and if a slight detour in my plans is my biggest concern at the moment, then I should feel bless.

I a living in one of the most amazing places in the World, I have a job, I am almost complete with my MA degree…shoot I even have a bunch of new friends who have my back as well.

So, I am going to take this guys advice and smile!

Smile and move on to plan B with my life. 🙂
