“Happiness is a choice, not a result…”


“…Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.”

-Ralph Marston

Hey all

Sometimes, things don’t go as planned. Who am I kidding? It seems like they rarely go according to schedule. Life often throws one thing or another at us but I find that our attitude can make a huge difference. I usually tell myself that “It will all work out, so don’t worry”. All that to say that the first few weeks of classes were a nightmare. Everything that could have gone wrong has. Prime example: The first day of class.

So here I am, super excited for school. I gave myself more than enough time to get ready that morning. On top of that, my outfit, lunch and book bag were already organized the night before which is very unlike me. Anyways, I got ready, made a green smoothie for my breakfast and left for school about an hour and 15mns prior to my first class. I live about 20mns away from school (including traffic) but I was just too excited that day.

Apparently, the rest of the population also decided to hit the road at at the same time! Traffic was horrendous to say the least. It was a parking lot! I kept telling myself that it was impossible for me to arrive late since I had so much time. I was late.  I even had to take an alternative route to school (or I would have never made it), and finding parking was of course another nightmare.

Finally, book bag in hand, I ran to class.  Turned out they changed the classroom at the last minute. Say what?

I leave you with this quote on this fine Friday morning! I thought it was pretty inspiring. I hope you had a great, productive week!

Ps. The pictures were randomly taken on a hiking trip this summer. There is an hilarious story behind these photographs so let me know if you would like a great laugh. I had to stare at them for a few minutes, reminiscing on the warm weather though. It’s been so cold lately.  Winter is coming. eek!
