That Time Of Year


The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.


I think for many of us we are constantly trying to plan what’s next in our life, whether it’s a career, relationship, or our mental stability. Lately, I have been with friends who have shared with me more about their lives and their anxieties. After listening to several people, I realized that perhaps the feelings I am having are completely normal. The question then becomes how best to manage our thoughts and actions to be emotionally strong. To maintain my sanity, I counter any difficult/negative life events by enjoying and remembering wonderful/great memories. This seems the best way to go on and live my life.

When that feeling as if the world is crumbling around you, transform those negative thoughts into a permanent positive attitude with gratitude.


That’s what practicing
is all about!

40+ days until graduation for myself and other students all around USA.
As we enter this new chapter, we need to reflect on all the IRREPLACEABLE memories AND LIFE LONG lessons that got us this far.
