Last week I came to the sudden revelation that I need to laugh more. I suffer from a common syndrome of winter blues. Being that is almost April and we haven’t had a good week of sunshine, its bound to make anyone a little sad. Actually its funny because I started writing this last night in the rain and my mood has changed dramatically now that the rain is finally gone.
This weekend came to bit of a surprise to me. The stress right now at school is literally out of control. I can’t even count how many mental breakdowns I have had last week. There comes a time in every busy activity when you just have to give up and let it be. Whatever happens, happens and we just have to learn to accept that.
We are told when we are younger to take advantage of everything that life has to offer. Instead of waiting for something to come to you, go and get it yourself. You can’t expect to have fun if you don’t go out of your way to allow yourself to enjoy new opportunities.
So on Saturday night when a friend asks if girls from another school could join us at dinner, accept. Make new friends. New experiences. New stories. It’s true that we are all set on this earth to be in human contact, but it is also true that we are meant to explore.
I have found that in times when nothing is going right, that is when everything changes. We learn how to cope with our troubles and suddenly everything goes away. There is a common misconception that everyone needs a lot of friends to survive. However, I believe that we only need the ones who treat you like you.
And as Vivian Green once said: Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about dancing in the rain. Literally dancing and singing and frolicking in the rain.
