Have you ever just woken up one day and your life was out of control? That only slightly covers my week so far. I have had so many things thrown at me this in the past couple of days and so many changes are happening so quickly. When I think about how I am going to get through everything, I try to come up with a few things that I can do to get me through this craziness that is my life. I feel like life is throwing me a bowl full of lessons, not lemons. And here is what I have learned so far:

Just Keep Smiling

+ Just keep smiling
+ Be your own person
+ Don’t compare yourself to others
+ Always have a backup plan & be prepared for anything
+ Enjoy Life, even the parts that are not so great
+ Appreciate the people in your life that love you, and put your energy into them
+ Don’t be afraid to go after what you want

I have to say the lesson that has stuck with me the most is “Just Keep Smiling”; this has made a world of difference for me. It makes my days more enjoyable even when they are tough. Smiles are contagious, and when you are smiling, you are inviting other happy people into your life, which is exactly what I need when I am going through a tough time.

So those are my life lessons for the week, all of which can be applied to so many different situations. Not only that, but they are things that we should keep in mind even when things are going well. I am hoping that things will get better soon around here, and these are all things that I will continue to keep in mind. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and I do believe that this week is a stepping-stone to something greater for me. So I will just keep my head up and let my smile lead me through these crazy times!

  • Great lessons, I approach pretty much every obstacle with humor so to keep smiling is certainly a great way to tackle the “bowl of lessons”. You’ve got a great smile so I’m sure with that attitude you’ll help make someone else’s day easier too. Keep smiling! 😀

      I agree, I think laughter can ease any situation, it’s also contagious. =]
