Loving The Life You Live

By Alexandra Thompson


Fully knowing who you are as an individual and spending quality time with yourself can teach you how to better love yourself. Especially, when you feel as if you’re drained to the bottom of the atmosphere in life. Giving yourself time to reevaluate the obstacles you may face in life will definitely bring out the inner person inside you. 

Many times what’s considered boring to others can bring joy to you and that is just fine! You have to do what makes you happy in life and enjoy yourself. Start by making every moment a memory, and don’t be too hard on yourself. 


Being a college student can seem to be overwhelming at times, but only if you let it. As a human being, you have to know when it’s best to set special time aside for yourself. Whether it is just meditating while recollecting mindful thoughts, going for a long walk, hanging out with friends, going out to dinner and/or a movie, reading a book, spending quality time with family and/or watching a television show. Making a long-distance phone call to family and/or friends if you live further away from each other can be helpful. These can all help you enjoy your life without feeling so overwhelmed and drained. 


Due to the fact we all only have one life to live it’s best to be happy and enjoy it. Take adventures and be spontaneous in a good way, that will bring you and your loved one’s happiness. 


Don’t let someone else steal your joy or happiness just because they are having a bad day. Continue to smile and be happy! It’s best to live it to the fullest and do things that are great and fun in life. That brings upon pleasure for you to live your life. 


By all means, we all only have one life to live and it’s best we live it to the fullest for the pursuit of enjoyment.
