And grades are in! It’s official, I completed my first year of college with straight A’s. WOW. STRAIGHT A’s! If you had told me in high school that in college I’d make it onto the Dean’s list, I would have…TOTALLY BELIEVED YOU.
For all four years of high school, I kept telling my family I would get a 4.0 but never did, little did they know I was really only pushing it off until college 😉
Well, I’m proud.
Summer intersession has already started and I’m actually excited to be taking a couple classes: English Literature and History of Photography. I’m so happy to have developed a mindset where I’m no longer hard on myself. That if I get a B, I get a B! No biggie, right? (See what I did there?)
I’m still blown away by all the change I’ve made in just a year. In high school, I wouldn’t allow myself to slack off and slacking off is EXACTLY what I did and I’d end up hating myself for it. I used to get so insecure about how I was never good at anything and how I felt like I was a lost cause. Now, I just take it one day at a time and remind myself that I don’t have to be good at everything. That just one thing would suffice.
Have I found that one thing yet? Well, it’s funny, now I’m more interested in the things that make me happy. In no particular order, those things are:
Learning about nutrition.
Do me a favor and find yourself in the things that you love, not the things you feel the need to be good at.
That in itself is the best weight lifted.
Thanks for reading and see you next time on the blog 🙂
Be seeing you. xX
