Recently I've hit an emotional rut of sorts which leads to my topic today, remaining positive.
I've lost my fair share of faith, about as much as anyone else, but after writing in my diary I feel like I cleansed my soul. I remember scoffing when peers and instructors suggested it years ago, but now I see it slowly working! I don't want to be the kind of person that blindly rejects helpful guidance like most high schoolers would, so I'm starting now. Changing myself has not been easy, especially when I think I have better things to do, but I realize now that I needed to focus on making myself a better person. I won't say I was perfect, because no one is, but I feel like the changes I made in my life to this day haven't taken a lot of effort or thinking on my part. I'm doing more helpful favors for people, I'm improving my artistic skill, and I'm already making a name for myself here. Just the other day someone greeted me saying, "Hi Ashley," with a smile. Yet I didn't know who he was! My guess is that he is from my art class because my name is embarrassingly popular in the class due to my teacher calling my art to everyones attention.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today, keep a positive attitude and stay brave!
