be inspired

Everyone has bad days. It is impossible to be happy all the time. Look at it from an evolutionary/scientific view, we get used to things - like we get used to the temperature of a pool, at one point it was freezing, but eventually it becomes normal and comfortable. Things that made us happy at one time, slowly become the norm - and soon, they don't make us as happy as they used to. It just happens, we adjust and we stop appreciating the little things.

It is a sad truth, and it happens to absolutely everyone. If you stop noticing the small things, you stop getting the same pleasure that you used to get from them.

So take a second, and just be thankful for the things in your life that sure, they may be small, but do they make you smile? Did they once make you smile? Could they make you smile again?

External factors play such a huge role in our lives. We all go through extremely tough times, and sometimes things seem absolutely impossible. But as my roommate Erin told me this morning - you get through things, and these are usually the things that make you a stronger person.

We all take different roads in our lives, and we all have one life to live - so how do you choose to live yours? I recommend that you all get inspired to just LIVE. Allow yourself to laugh freely, cry freely, love freely, and just share yourself with the world. You are a gift just waiting to be opened by the world - why waste that? Be the best you that you can be. Like they say, life is a roller coaster, so why not ride it?
