Ups and Downs.

19 Apr 2014

"It's going to be ok"

How many freaking times have we heard that one before? It might be true but sometimes you just feel like your life is like a roller coaster. I know, so cliche by comparing life with a roller coaster but I cannot actually compare it with another thing that would best describe it. It has its ups and downs. And just like when you are in a roller coaster, some of its downs are more radical than others, just like life.

We all got problems. There is always something bothering us, and then we try to find a solution, we adopt it to our lives and voila! Life is good again...but then, everything falls apart. So when we will have a perfect life? Never.

Life is so imperfect, just like everyone of us. So stop waiting for a perfect life, for a perfect you. There will ALWAYS be something "not right" but we shouldn't let that bad thing take all over our lives because guess what? We only have one. There are many second chances for everything, but in life there isn't a second chance. Also time. We never go back, we only have the possibility of going forward. And the tricky and sucky part is that time goes by SO FAST. It literally waits for no one. Its not like income or gender inequality, its equal for EVERYONE. Its so fair if you think about it. We just have to make the best out of it.

I would not tell you to "be happy" every day because I feel like thats a bit difficult. But I will tell you this:

Be grateful and thankful for everything you have. Regardless of what your situation is, trust me, it could always be worse. Don't let negativism control the situation. I will also not tell you to be "optimistic" all the time because again, its a bit difficult (or maybe just for me, I'm a bit of a pessimist, maybe realist?) but do be strong.

There will be times in our lives that literally everything seems to be going wrong. And when everyone tells us to "be happy, be optimistic" it just sounds SO easy to say it, but when you actually have to put them in practice...not so much. And to be honest, it sounds a bit annoying, for me at least. I know that people are trying to help you and all but the whole "be happy" doesn't really makes me feel better, in the contrary, it makes me angrier. But I mostly deal my struggles by staying strong, because I feel like thats more real than just "being happy".

So stay strong (again, a bit cliche) and ALWAYS look forward, in the sense that there is a tomorrow to start fresh. Because in the other sense, is also good to look backwards, to analyze your past and remember the good memories you've lived so far, so you can realize that life is good, no matter the bad experiences, hold on to the good ones because for those moments is what we all live for.

Alleviating the shoulder pressure.

Hey everyone!

It's incredible on how happy can let you feel if you are on the right track with a homework or a project. You see, I'm the type of person in which whenever I have so much to do, I get extremely stressed and have no idea where to start from so I end up doing nothing. This is really bad because I KNOW I am supposed to be doing it and if I let the time go, I feel like my shoulders are so heavy.

Since the semester is almost over, there are so much stuff to do. Today I gave in two papers for Sociology class so that's done... for now. But the major thing that is stressing me SO MUCH is my pre-final speech for my Public Speaking class. I'm presenting it on tuesday and I don't even know why, but I chose a very complex topic: Sustainability.

There is just so much to be researched and its crazy. It's driving me insane. I don't really like doing research and most of the times I end up confusing myself with all of the sources I just gathered and don't know where to put them. But today, oh today, I'm finding the perfect evidences to support my arguments. And let me tell you, it feels A-M-A-Z-I-N-G to know that I'm going to the right track. Plus its friday so its giving me more of an enthusiast vibe to finish it.

I know that it suck to be having so much stuff to do but if you do not start then it will just prolongate and you will feel more guilty about it. Then the pressure and stress intensifies and you end up doing everything at last minute, like one day before its due maybe? (We all been there). But honestly, your day will be so much better if you at least start that homework or project you are dreading to do. Little by little. Just sit down and start it! You will feel that a huge weight has come out from your shoulders. And its an amazing feeling!
