A little bit of this and that

Reflective Monday

13 January 2014

I can't lie, recently I've been feeling a little down in relation to my future - I don't really know where I'm headed and that's been stressing me out. I'm the kind of person who plans things out, who knows what's happening when, but I guess when it comes to my future, I can't really be sure.

Today I started back at university for the second semester of this year, studying physiology, and to be honest, the previous semester had made me miserable; the work load was overwhelming, I had deadlines constantly and what with working part time, I was struggling to find the time of day to sit down and actually get on with what I needed to do. I felt like I had no time to myself and was trapped in a vicious circle of lectures, assignments, studying and work - it was never ending. Yes, I understand that all students go through the same thing; huge workloads and late nights but I had really lost all passion for the subject that I was studying and it was becoming more and more of a chore. It was getting to the stage that I was considering leaving university all together. I guess I questioned, and I am still currently questioning whether university is for me, it's not all that I thought it would be but I guess it's all a matter of personal experience.

This morning though, as my alarm started blaring at 7am, I prepared myself for yet another Monday, when I came across this

I really do love this, I realised that I just need to stop stressing and worrying about everything,  try keep things simple and everything will fall into place. I'm a great believer in that everything happens for a reason, and whilst I may not currently be happy with university and my work situation, I am surrounded by some wonderful people who really do make me happy (you know who you are) and are able to bring the positives into any situation. I guess I just need to look on the positive side more often; I might not be as happy as I can be but its a new year, a new beginning and the chance to start afresh; the chance to start exploring different possibilities and options in my life - to find what it is that makes me happy. Then I'm set.

I know that things are difficult for just now but I just have to keep telling myself that in the long run, everything will be worthwhile. I have a vague idea of where I'd like to be in the future, all I can do is work for it, that's all we can ever do.

Here's to 2014, and beating the Monday blues!
