Compassion

Everyday, we as human beings, make judgements about other people. Fat, skinny, ugly, hot, dumb, smart are some popular ones. But what about the negative parts of judgement. The fat, the ugly, the dumb judgements we make. Those are pretty harsh things to think, and if you say these things to people, you need a harsh reality check. No one, not a single soul on this earth, is perfect. But we are all beautiful works in progress. We all are trying to better ourselves everyday. When you’re walking down the street, driving in your car, or sitting at your desk, think about the judgements you make. Think about the story behind that person. They may be dealing with some serious stuff. Don’t just say, “man, that guy is an ass” or “wow, why is she so upset about nothing?”. Remember, you may have only had a brief encounter with them, and they didn’t show themselves. They only showed a small glimpse of who they are. They could be having their worst day ever, a bad week, bad year, or just had an extremely hard life. Give people the benefit of the doubt today, take an extra second, and think positive. You’ll find your life is a much better place. I promise you that!

Change

If you say that change isn’t a scary thing, you are lying, or extremely and unmeasurable courageous. Change can shake your entire world, and leave you wondering how were you ever so happy before things changed. It can crush you, and make you feel weak, and powerless. Change can even make you have thoughts of severe depression. I’m not going to lie, change scared me when I first came to MSU. I thought, man, I’m one of 50,000 now, out of my parents house, and living with people I essentially haven’t spoken to in years. I was pretty scared of that change.

Change though, can lead to great opportunities. If you embrace change, and face it head on, this new change, can open up doors you never knew even existed. But, if you’re not willing to accept these new things in life, you will inevitably be forced back to the start, before the change even happened, and before you even realize that you were too stubborn to accept this change!

This especially applies to people like me. I love my day to day routine, and 9 times out of 10, wouldn’t change a thing about it. But embracing the change I made coming to East Lansing, I’ve already made huge strides in a matter of months. I’ve gotten a new job, am developing new relationships, and working everyday to ensure, that I’m better tomorrow when I wake up, than I was today.

That’s what change can do. It can make life better for you. But if you’re not careful, it can make life, much, much worse. So embrace it, and let life do what it will.

Here’s the latest song stuck in my head, which inspired me to write this. I’m a huge Ed Sheeran fan!

Bad days

Regardless of who you are, where you are, or what you do, having a bad day is quite frankly, inevitable. Even if you’re like me, and wake up with a good attitude everyday, life hits you. Life can hit you extremely hard, and if you don’t know how to fight back, you’ll find yourself in a bout with an opponent who is bigger, stronger, and faster. So what can you be? You can be smarter.

When you have a monumentally bad day (or week, or month, god forbid a bad year), it seems like what can go wrong, will go wrong, and definitely is going wrong. Odds are, you’re walking around with your head down, a bad attitude, and bleak outlook on everything in life. But you truly have to remember one thing. It’s vital that you remember, that this is just one day. This one day, has to end. It will be over before you know it. This bad day, can end at midnight, or it can end RIGHT NOW. It just depends on your attitude. If your strong enough, you can just about turn a day around in a matter of minutes, but not many people can just do that.

So when you wake up the next day, don’t even think about the day yesterday. Think about how awesome today can be. You make a day, not the outer forces around you. Sure a bad grade on test, you fighting with your friends, or doing something stupid can put a damper on your mood. But you don’t have to let that ruin your day tomorrow! You can wake up, and be happy. It’s totally up to you. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. “Get up, look up, and never, ever give up”– Michael Irvin.

During those good days? Make that feeling last. Use those memories to make tomorrow a better day. Use those feelings to create a buzz of happiness every time you think about that event. Whatever your attitude is, you make it that. If you want to be negative, you’re going to be negative. But if you want to be positive, and optimistic, you’ll see the world as a beautiful place. Trust me, I know how it goes!
