how to be more positive
Happy Friday from four floors up!
After reflecting on my life and the past three months (thanks Chinese takeout fortune cookie), I have decided to switch it up and offer some advice on how to incorporate positivity into your life.
If you are curious about my fortune cookie and what it said to cause me to reflect on my life (who knew fortune cookies could be so inspiring?) – it said this, “Remember three months from this date. Good things are in store for you.”
Instead of throwing away my fortune cookie like I usually do, I decided to pin it to my bulletin board with the special date written on the back – February 21, 2017.
Since I received this fortune cookie three months ago, numerous blessings and amazing opportunities have entered my life. I think it is so important to always remember to reflect on our lives. It is so easy to get caught up in our routines and, as a result, we forget to stop to be thankful for all of the blessings we have received in our lives.
I have noticed that I have become more positive since my awareness of the blessings and opportunities that I have encountered in my life. One bad day of negativity and disappointment does not compare to the amazing opportunities we have. All that it takes is an open heart and positive vibes.
In light of this new found positivity and openness, here are some things that I am especially thankful for and happy about…
Recently, it has become increasingly warmer in Philly. This past weekend, with temps in the 70’s, students headed outside to hang on the quad and spend time in the sunshine. Just being outside in the beautiful weather seemed to lift my spirits. I am looking forward to the arrival of spring and warmer weather.
Three months ago, I never thought that photography would become such a constant part of my life. I have loved having the opportunity to shoot at the SJU basketball games, as well as have photoshoots with my friends. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for my photography.
This semester, I have loved getting to know and bond with my fourth floor girls! From Wednesday work out sessions to movie nights and face masks, I know that we will always have a good time when we are together.
With new classes and being involved in different activities, I have also loved getting to know a wider range of people across campus.
Since coming to college, I have definitely listened to more and more music. Some of my favorite artists are Jack Johnson, John Mayer, and Colbie Caillat. Check out my feel good playlist on Spotify for some artists that radiate good vibes.
Four Floors Up
And of course, how could I forget about this platform, four floors up! I never imagined that I would enjoy blogging when I first created this blog as part of my Communications class in the fall. Not to mention I never thought that people would be interested enough to read what I have to say! I am so thankful for this blog and my readers – thank you 🙂
