That’s the smile of a girl who is ridiculously, blissfully, incredibly happy.
So, why the enormous grin, you might ask?
a) because I have an entire tub of mango gelato for my own personal consumption.
b) because I received the results of my first year at university!
Yes, that’s right… I survived what is known as one of the most confronting transitional periods in ones life: the passage from highschool to university, and dayum, I did good.
My results were as follows:
Children’s Literature- 90%
Professional Writing- 93%
I achieved these results whilst struggling mentally with the challenges of moving away from everything I’ve ever known. Not only did I surpass everyone else’s expectations… I exceeded my own.
If I can get results like that whilst juggling emotional cacti (excuse the bad botanical metaphor)… Imagine what is possible with mental stability and a positive outlook.
Yes, I have struggled. Yes, I have wanted to curl up in a ball and hibernate for years on end. Yes, I have been on the verge of mental breakdown.
But you know what? I overcame those obstacles, and there’s no freakin’ way anything else will stop me either.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. Even if I don’t know who you are… you are an amazing person and I have faith in you.
