"We must abolish the fish people!"
My family came down to spend the day with me this past weekend. Saturday consisted of celebrations, catching up, and plenty of laughter; all of the things that usually happen with my family. I have to say that it was much needed.
In the few weeks of being back at school, I have already fallen into a monotonous routine of class and time at home.
For me, routine is extremely helpful with getting outside of my room and staying active, but it can become a burden when my values of friendship, communication, and creation are not being met every day…and that is exactly what has been happening.
It’s too easy to become overwhelmed and forget about the little things in life and how much they truly matter. It’s too easy to become swallowed up by anxiety, pain, guilt, and depression, and lose sight of a positive attitude. It’s too easy to become complacent with life and complain about your misfortunes.
Actually, now that I think about it, all of the previous statements are “too easy” when you have no support system; when you have no one to bring you back on track. That’s why it is incredibly important for people to reach out for help when they are feeling lost or confused. It’s a lesson that I continue to learn.
With all that being said, I want to thank my parents for everything that they have done for me. I want to thank them for their endless support throughout my life as well as their patience and care. I could go on and on about everything they have done for me, but dinner is calling my name so I’ll wrap this one up.
To put it simply: I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
