One Pimple is One Too Many - Fresh Start


For many, today marks the start of a new semester. Whatever happened last year is dead and gone! Today's the chance to start fresh!

Every breath is a second chance. - "Always" by Switchfoot
Every breath you take is a second chance -- a second chance to love, to hope, to dream, to pursue -- to do everything and anything that you've set your mind to. If last year//semester wasn't your best, choose today to make this year//semester different! If you were late on assignments last year, make the extra effort to finish and turn in your assignments early. If you were lonely or didn't have many friends, decide that this year will be different. Smile, be kind to people -- the only way to have a friend is to be one.

Something to remember: Sometimes the only thing you can change in your life is yourself. Choose to be the better person in all situations. It's not easy but ultimately, it will be worth it. Another important thing to remember is to be content with what you have. We all have dreams, goals and things we want to accomplish in the future but if we're not content with what we have and who we are today, we'll never be happy! I know this may sound like a contradiction but it's truth -- you should always hope and make the effort to better yourself. But at the same time, realize that all that changing isn't going to make you happy. If you're not first happy with who you are, no matter what you change you won't be happy.

Believe in yourself. Love yourself. It's not being selfish -- it's taking care of the amazing gift that you are! Treat others as you would want to be treated... while that means you should be kind and loving to people -- that also means you should be kind and loving to YOURSELF! You are one amazing person! There is no one on earth like you! You are a peculiar treasure, a masterpiece, a cherished one!

Every time you smile, you make the world a little brighter. :)

Have the best week everyone!
