I woke up today on the right side of the wrong bed. I woke up feeling heavy hearted and discouraged. I believe though, that although feeling present emotions is inevitable, it’s up to you to decided whether or not you let those emotions make or break you. So, instead of sitting here feeling down on a beautiful Saturday morning, I’ve decided that I am going to make this blog about things that I’m thankful for.
I am thankful to have family members that call me while I’m away to check up on how I am doing and let me know how much they care about me. I am thankful for the fact that I go to such an amazing school which is kicking ass in football this season. Last night we beat Louisville 38-35, they are ranked #8 in the nation and we beat them. UCF was trending all over twitter and everyone in Orlando was going out, buying drinks and celebrating the win. It made me feel so proud of being a student at The University of Central Florida and made me realize that not everyone has this opportunity.
I am thankful for the good friends that I have. I don’t speak regularly to a huge group of people from my high school but I am thankful that I’m am still just as close to my two bestfriends from high school. I want them to be a part of my life forever, I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. I am thankful to be healthy and have a healthy family. I am so lucky to have a brand new car sitting in my parking lot. I am thankful to be able to have the opportunity to study away from home and learn how to be on my own. I am thankful to have a warm, welcoming home to go back to whenever I feel overwhelmed in Orlando. There’s a lot of things that I have to be grateful for, “This too shall pass”. The best teacher in life is time and with God’s guidance, I will feel wonderful again.
