It’s been so long that I don’t understand these feelings anymore. I don’t know what to do or how to act. I might be overthinking all this but I’m so afraid.
I need help, maybe a therapist. Gahhhh.
I couldn’t have gotten through 2013 without you. I’m excited to move forward and make 2014 the best it can be!
Every year I tell myself I’m going to travel, but then I find myself that I either don’t have the money or the time. Now that I actually have my own income and I have a little more flexibility, I can save up for more weekend trips to various cities here in the US.
I’d like to first visit more of my own “backyard” before I go and explore more of the world. Or well at least have enough PTO to go travel abroad.
IF ANYONE WANTS TO TRAVEL TOGETHER, LET ME KNOW! :)

No amount of running could erase the amount of or type of food I eat but it still is my release from stress.
Hard optimism represents a disciplined, deliberate way of thinking about whatever life throws our direction. It’s about always focusing on blessings rather than bad things…emphasizing opportunities instead of obstacles…explaining events to ourselves in a way that enhances performance and improves our quality of life.
You are the boss of your own attitude; no one can do your thinking for you. Optimism or pessimism – ultimately it’s your choice. You get to decide how you want to frame events. You choose how you’ll interpret circumstances that will inevitably occur in this profession. You are the engineer of your emotional life, the architect of your own happiness. There’s a lot riding on this issue of attitude….design optimistically!
Change the way you look at life and you literally shape a different life for yourself. By controlling your mind, orienting toward optimism – you can significantly improve your performance and overall happiness.
You have an inner voice that only you hear. This invisible, silent voice speaks to you in private through your thoughts. It tells you how to size up any situation at hand…how to interpret events. The voice explains to you it’s version of what’s going on, how well you’re handling the situation, and how it will probably turn out for you.
By the time you were eight years old, the kinds of interpretations you gave yourself started to form habits. Your inner voice develops a particular style of explaining much like a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Those of you who end up with an optimistic explanatory style have an inner self that affirms your abilities and predicts good fortune. But if you’re burdened with a pessimistic explanatory style, you have an inner voice that criticizes your performance and warns of trouble to come. Both voices tend to be right….why? They help create the very conditions of which they speak. What you say to yourself counts; your thoughts shape your experiences and literally help create your future.
