What a beautiful day! I’m looking out of my window, the sun is shining and I’m feeling good. At this moment my life is in perfect harmony. I’m having a blast here in America and nothing can bring me down. Happiness is something we create ourselves. A wise man once said “folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be”. I really believe that’s true. There were times I wasn’t as happy as I am now and of course everyone has their down days, but being stuck in that moment won’t help anyone and definitely not yourself. Take matters in your own hands, be as inspiring as you want yourself to be because no one can be happy for you, it comes from within.

Last week a friend of mine let me watch video, called “The 3 A’s of Awesome”. It’s quite a long video but if you have some time to kill, please watch this video. You’ll certainly feel revived and more appreciative after seeing it.

People become less and less appreciative of small things. The other day I was walking with a fellow international student to the cafe and the sun broke through. I took a moment to enjoy the sun and she didn’t even notice the sunshine. Ever since I got here there’s been snow. It’s been so cold and the only thing everyone could think about was summer. Unfortunately we can’t make time pass faster so instead just enjoy little moments like these. Today it’s quite warm outside and everyone seems so much happier. It’s the small things that make life worthwhile.
