Staying Positive

sorry this is a day late Alaskan service blows

There are really only two conditions of the human experience: very, very happy or about to become very, very happy.
-The Universe
But we have options of how we can choose to react to our world: we can choose to be vengeful or we can choose peace.
This quote is a daily reminder to me that I can choose happiness regardless of my circumstances.
I can choose hope in spite of the hopelessness the world may seem to possess.
I can choose peace in spite of the civil war being waged in our country.
I can choose kindness in spite of how poorly others are treated.
I can choose love in spite of the hate so many others harbor.
As a society, we can choose to be better people. Or, we can choose to digress to who we used to be 100 years ago.
I still love people though, no matter how much we may suck sometimes.

Do you ever just realize you’re terrified?
You think about your future, or your math test, or that person you like, and then discover that you’re scared.
The other day, I sort of realized I might want to be a writer, then became terrified.
Thinking about your future honestly sucks, thinking about relationships, or your grades, or how you’re going to pay for college, oh man. Life is just horrible sometimes.
You know what I do when life becomes too much? I read, or I listen to music, or I just go on a walk, maybe even a run.
Like just enjoying nature, wow. Nature is so freaking cool.
Looking at huge trees swaying in the breeze, as cliche as it sounds, really does make you forget about the little things.
I really wish I could be as serene as I am when I’m outside all the time, but at least I get the chance every once and awhile.
Today at my job, an 11 year old girl told me she had anxiety and I was stunned.
Why are people so worried? Like why can’t people find their tree, their stress reliever, their way out of the madness.
Worrying won’t do anything to change your situation, no matter how much you do it. I wish I could take my own advice, but at least I have the trees to take me away from my troubles, if only for a moment.
Do what you have to do to find your trees, please.
