Why Do Something When Someone Wouldn’t Do It For You?

Be Happy, lifestyle

When I first started my job two years ago I remember asking “Why would you stock for morning crew if they don’t stalk for you?” and my manager responded saying “Because it’s the right thing to do.” I’ve learned a lot for my job but this is something that will stick with me for a while.

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.

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.

A Letter to Myself in 4 Years

Be Happy

When I was a freshman in high school my english teacher assigned us the task of writing ourselves letters to open our senior year. As our graduation date is approaching (18 days, but I’m not counting) we received our letters in our english class. I’m surprised on home when I have changed.
