Saturday, Sunday, & Monday

Saturday: Break time.
Spend time doing something you really like to do. Enjoy being outside, go for a walk, chat with a friend, get a massage, or read a book. The possibilities are endless! Take the time to realize you are enjoying yourself in that moment, and not just after the fact.

Sunday: Inside Out.
Spend as much time on the inside as you do on the outside. Find something you want to improve on and make a goal. Reconcile yourself with someone distant, refrain from judging others, or strive to see the waterline of life's cup just a little fuller. Maybe you want to set a goal to be kinder, nicer, and a little more compassionate. Whatever it may be, set your mark and go for it. You can do anything you put your mind to - remember that Rome wasn't built in a day. If it's not easy the first time, it's only going to get better.

Monday: Simple Kindness Day.
Smile, and perform 3 acts of kindness today. You could send a nice note to a friend, or help your mom cook dinner. Maybe there is a person who just needs your friendly hello. You could thank your bus driver for the ride and pick up your neighbor's newspaper on the walk home. There are countless ways to show a little extra kindness every day.

...This is what is written on my little paper hand-out thing. On Friday, you were also supposed to write 20 things you like about yourself, which I did. That was great.

Otherwise, though, I unfortunately didn't really do the others. But today is a brand new day! Huzzah.

You Know,

sometimes, bad things happen.

Actually, bad things happen a lot.

I'm glad that someday, we'll be judged on both actions, and REactions.

Because that sounds wonderful to me.

...Also, on a happier note:

A club I'm involved with at school is starting a "Love your Life" week next week. Obviously, I'm going to participate. And I'm thinking I might share what we do each day and my experiences that follow on here. Good? Okay.

I'm sorry you guys just hear from me all the time...

Totally borrrring.

Also, that last sentence made me sound like a very typical teenager.

...Which is fine, actually, because I pretty much am.
