Life is what you make of it

Today is a new day! With that of course comes new challenges. Even though it can be quite difficult, it is important to overcome those challenges. One thing that completely amazes me is how people are always telling me that I only think about myself. If i only thought about myself, I can guarantee that I would not be doing the things that I do-cleaning the house when people are too tired, cooking everyone nice meals when they are too tired, stuff like that. I am always doing for other people, yet somehow, that gets completely overlooked by some. Why? I wonder. It kind of stinks when people automatically assume, when they do not even know the whole story. 

Anyways, it is important to remember to rise above those challenges that try to break you down. While it may not seem like it, life won't always be a struggle. Life is what you make it. Which is why I am done letting myself fall between the cracks. I am going to work harder than I have ever worked before, to pursue my dreams. I am turning 22 in a little over than a month, so now is the time I shine. I am done putting myself after everyone else. I am going to work hard in school and get the degree I have always dreamed of. Life is what you make of it, and that is what I am going to live by.

Life's Mess

Now summer 2014 is halfway over and I sit and wonder... Am I happy with the way things are going? The answer is no. I have that feeling that I am getting nowhere in life and it honestly makes me sad. I should be getting ready to graduate next year, but I am nowhere close because I am stuck in this never ending circle of a mess. I look around and all I see is mess. I can't help but wonder, is this what my entire life is going to be like? Hopefully the answer is no, because I honestly do have hopes and dreams.
