Be strong and of a good courage

Today as I was referred to as a teacher by an underclassmen I realized how fast my life is flying by. It's like one day I was learning to tie my shoes and then all the sudden I'm almost a legal adult. I admit, I have not been the happiest camper lately, and honestly I have no good reason why. I found myself getting lost in the negative when I should have just looked around and seen the beauty in the world around me. I know I was put on this earth for a purpose. God knows what he's doing. I may not know how to solve a pre-calculus problem, I may not be good at any sport, I may not have the greatest eyes or the best body, but I am content with the way I am. I have a true heart and a sincere love for all the people I meet. I can make you laugh, even if I'm not feeling great. I can sing the "If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay.

I don't know the type of people that I'll have met and what we've done, but I will remember the person. Each person has the mere ability to impact my life(or even yours). I am bless…

Have you ever heard of postsecrets? It's this blog where people mail their secrets on the back of a postcard to the people that run the blog. Some are very amazing, some are a little "not needed." Overall, the whole idea is brilliant. Our yearbook is being based around this concept & I love it. This was one of my favorites. What's your secret? I try to remember feelings I get sometimes. It makes life seem so much more realistic, so much more meaningful. I think the world is such a beautiful place full of ugly things. Why corrupt the minds of the youth who will one day be our leaders? Life is so full of madness I'm not sure anyone feels safe anymore. They can spend hours worrying about things that are going to happen anyway. The world would be so much happier if people would learn to count the blessings they have. Wouldn't they feel less scared?
