Choose Joy // Blogmas Day 1 

Hello & happy December 1st! It’s almost the happiest time of the year, but for many students it is currently the most stressful. Finals are approaching in the next week or so. The pressure to do well is at an all time high.

I know I push myself to be perfect even when it’s not achievable. I want to get a 4.0 in every class and on every assignment. Realistically, I know that’s not going to happen. But I’m still disappointed in myself when I do less than perfect.

Lately, I’ve been really overwhelmed with school. It feels like I have this huge weight to do well hanging over my head. With all of the stress, I have to remind myself to take a step back and look at what’s really important. It’s not having the perfect grades, its looking to choose Joy in the things that aren’t the most joyful. It’s something I find myself reminding people often but forgetting to apply to my own life.

So, with finals next week I’m trying to take a deep breath and remind myself that it’s okay not to be perfect. I’m reminding myself that it’s more important to be happy than to have apl 4.0’s… And in all things no matter how hard, to choose joy. 

I took a little break from school work this week to do a little Christmas shopping and it was a very festive and happy day. Here are some photos:
