The last couple of weeks have been strange. Not having school and then having AP exams, I feel like I haven’t been to work in two weeks. And I have to be honest, with so little of school left, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to “return to work” with a smile on my face. However, this morning, it wasn’t so bad. I even forgot about all my complaining during the weekend.
Yesterday, I read an article about “venting”, which is what we usually do when we are upset. The article explained that venting actually makes you angrier. I think the same could be said about complaining, it has a complete negative effect on us. At the end of the day, we are going to do what we are supposed to do, and we better to it with the right disposition, or we are going to waste our time. This is how I feel about today, the right disposition is helping me write this journal, is helping me complete my last STUCO responsibilities, and is helping me remember about all the things I still want to do or help with, this school year. I’m grateful my morning has been easy going and has helped me get into the flow of things with ease. I’m grateful I get to change my disposition, and have a positive attitude. I know our environment influences how we feel, so right now, my environment is helping my feel just right.
Needless to say, I am thinking about the upcoming summer break, but I came across a quote that is not only perfect for the last STUCO bulletin board of the year, they are also the exact words I need to keep in mind for the next three weeks: “don’t count the days, make the days count” I want to share it with you, because I know some of you are ready to leave, but some of you need these last three weeks to reach your goals. A countdown is not enough motivation to keep going, we need meaning in what we do and need to do. Find your meaning, make the days count! I have mine, and I’m grateful I get to share my meaning every day.
Have an awesome week, remember I’m here for you,
Ms. Gaby Di Muro
