I work in fast food, everytime one of my co workers hands something to hand out I say thank you. It’s not necessary how I was brought up but I’m one I’ve molded myself into. Don’t get me wrong, my family taught me manners but I’ve still realized a lot about the importance of saying thank you.
You’re not entitled to be given things. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 9 months yet everytime he buys me something or does something for me I say thank you. Why? Because he’s not obligated to get me food. He’s not obligated to hold the door for me. And I’m thankful for anything he does for me that I could do myself.
It’s important to say thank you so people know you’re exactly what you’re saying, thankful.
Not everyone feels this way but I write thank you cards almost everytime I’m gifted something. It’s both formal and shows that why you’re thankful has impacted you.
It’s also important to write thank you notes or say thank you to important people. When I graduated high school I took time to write thank you notes to teachers that impacted my life.
In the end, thank you shows anyone you’re thankful for what they’ve done for you. If you enjoyed this post don’t forget to check out the rest of my blog and my Instagram, @corahandley !
When deciding to scroll through my Instagram a few weeks ago I stumbled upon an ad for something called a Happiness Planner and I was instantly intrigued.
In about two months I’m headed to college and I’m in need of a planner. I’m also doing everything in my power to stay happy, I don’t talk about it a lot on here but I actually have a mood disorder so my mental health is something I really need to focus on.
Starting in April I started a series on my blog where I post about what made me happy the previous month. This ending up leading to me branching out and creating on whole series on just being happy!
You would never guess that a content creator would willingly delete their social media, but I did just that. Around November 2015, I decided to delete all of my social media and I decided today I want to share my experience with you.
I created a video about this two years ago, here’s the link.
So this was the most eye opening experience I’ve ever had. I’ve realized that there is so much more to live than your phone. As a mention in my video, it seems like a pretty face gets more likes than an inspirational post.
Although I haven’t started college yet I can still give you my opinion on what it’s like to tell people you’re going to major in art.
I’m eighteen now but I thought this would be an important list to make for me!
1. Be truly happy
2. Find a true career path
It’s my last week of high school this week. If you read my Introverts Guide To Senior Year you know I normally keep to my self. I have a select few friends that I’ve had throughout high school and I’m happy with that. I woke up today and was excited. It was my last week. Last Monday. I was slightly sad.
While struggling with a mood disorder and anxiety, being truly happy was a huge problem for me for a long time. I finally realized what I can do to be happy all the time. This is a list of things I find are crucial to my happiness
1. Staying off social media
I spent more time with myself than I do with other people yet I’m not upset about it. I’m one of the most low key people I knew. I’m not shy but I probably won’t be the one to start a conversation. Your senior year is filled with tons of events you’re expected to attend and memories you’re “supposed” to be making. So this is my guide, as a fellow introvert, to getting through your senior year of high school.
The day I turned 16 I started applying for jobs. I got hired at my first and only interview and a fast food restaurant near my house. The restaurant I work at is actually right across the street from my chains corporate headquarters.
