Attitude


As exams officially commence today, I'm counting down the minutes until Friday at 9:15 AM when my last final will officially be over! In a way, it's a bittersweet ending to a school year seeing that next year I'll actually be a senior. Because I'm close with so many girls in the senior class at my school, and my brother is also a senior, I've had quite the inside peak at the graduation process, and it's such a monumental experience! A part of me is excited to lead my high school alongside my class, but a part of me also wants to go back to freshman year, and just keep doing these past years over and over again. Lately I've noticed this whole experience of graduation and growing up is completely dependent on perspective, which branches a lot off of attitude. And my attitude, to say the least, has not been the best lately.

Maybe it's the stress and my lack of sleep, maybe it's the seemingly-never-ending family and friend drama, or maybe I could just be feeling a little down, but my parents, friends, and even I have noticed that my attitude has been so negative and pessimistic lately. I have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to in my life that it just doesn't add up how I can not be so appreciative or positive and excited for everything in my life. As the school year comes to an end, I want to focus on entering my senior year with a positive attitude and enjoying my summer to the fullest so I can make the most of what I have left of high school! Life is short, and these last few years have gone by so fast.

It can sometimes be a bit of a personal struggle for people to hop out of bed each day with a smile on their face; everyone fights their own battle and it's tricky when you're not always in the loop with what everyone else has on their plate. My personal goal for this summer is going to be to try my hardest to soften up and have a better attitude. Happiest girls are the prettiest!

Any tips for me?
xoxo

  1. That is a great goal to have! My last day of school was last Friday and I can gladly say I have been a much happier person since then! Something about summer can make almost all of your problems disappear! :)

  2. Fran this post hits so close to home for me. I totally feel you on not having a great attitude this year. So many of my friends and family have been struggling with so much that it's impacted me greatly. Like you I want to head into senior year with optimism, looking forward to all the fun! Xo!

  3. I love this post Frannie! I am a typically optimistic person but lately with the mountains of stress it has been hard to keep a positive attitude (and to remember school is over in a few short weeks!)
