Here are some lessons I have learned throughout my four years in high school.

Individuality. This is very important. It’s one of the only things that you have that’s completely yours, so own it. I often feel as if I see so many people attempting to be clones of one another. Dress the way you want too. Join activities that best resemble YOU not your friends, not people you think you should be more like. “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” – Brene Brown

It’s not the end of the world. I promise. I often think that the end of the world is fastly approaching if I’m forced to give a speech I don’t want to give. Or something along those lines. There are always more important, and bigger things to focus on. In situations like that I try to think, in one week this won’t matter at all. It’ll be done and over with, so why am I obsessing so much?

Lastly, everything happens for a reason. I remind myself of this everyday. Certain things are meant for you are certain things aren’t. You might not know why somethings is occurring that way that is, but I assure you, it’s meant to work out for you in that way. It may be confusing in the moment, but sooner or later you will find out the reasons as to why it happened. Trust fate and karma to do their thing. “When it is all finished, you will discover it was never random.”
