Choosing Happiness

     Lately I have been trying to change my outlook on life to a more positive approach. It is easy to wake up each morning feeling bummed out and already upset at the world. Just thinking about all the schoolwork I know I'll receive that day to add onto my already giant load of homework is making me feel miserable however, just a slight tweak in attitude makes all the difference. Before I get out of bed I tell myself that "today is going to be a good day" and genuinely mean it, and to me it really helps. I begin to go about that day with a happier state of mind and not dread it as much any more.
     It is undoubtedly difficult to maintain such positivity when life is not going the way you want it to unexpected low grades, falling behind in homework, approaching due dates with work that has yet to be started yet through perseverance it makes you a better person (or me at least). Life is all about balance, whether it's between work, school, and extra-curricular activities, it is important to limit and not overwork ourselves. We all know the saying "too much of anything is bad", and that includes schoolwork and even Internet; this goes without saying that by keeping harmony in all aspects of life we can really begin to appreciate the little things in life ultimately leading to happiness.
     When the world is hard on you and you feel like giving up before you even begin, remember my favourite quote by Babe Ruth.
