Will there ever be better days?

The answer is yes there will, there always will be better days!

I think all of us have been in a period where we feel like life isn’t exciting, interesting, or is stagnant, depressing, and we feel almost stuck, where the days we live are what we expect the rest of our lives to look like. But I am here to tell you from pure experience, better days are coming!

I am not going to go into great detail about my past life, but the past couple of years a lot of discouraging, heartbreaking occurrences happened and I almost felt stuck after because I was different from others even more so after those experiences, and I never thought I could live my life “normally”,  and be unstuck where I can create new experiences with people I never thought I could connect with.

BUT yet I did! I recently spoke at my university because the tutoring center nominated me to be a guest speaker to talk about my experiences at college. In one part of my speech I say

“So when it was time to move to Arizona, I wasn’t sure if I could handle another dramatic change, yet it was one of the best decisions I ever made”

This is where my better days started.

This does not mean your better days are when you go to college, or move out of your hometown;

its when you decide to get help, take chances, connect with people, look beyond your past life, and just smile all the time is when you will truly find yourself living the better days.

It isn’t necessarily college that is making me live better days, I mean yes it is, but it is who I am as a person, recognizing that I am not defined by the heartbreaking things that have happened to me that has allowed me to understand that I can live my life the way I want it, and college is just the resource I am using to take chances, connect with people, and explore different identities of mine like my professional self, leader self, creative self, etc.

I am truly able to be me, find my passion, and find friends at college! At first it was hard because you can’t find your best friend the very second you move to a new place or your passion right away but, if you continuously try and reach out to gain opportunities to find passion, and friends, I guarantee you will find it.

Also, I know that there will be a period where I might feel like I lost my passion or friends but life keeps changing, that’s what life is! 🙂

Freshmen year of college, I knew I wanted to be in business and impact people’s lives by promoting a product or communicating ideas online, but did not know how I was going to do that, and I wanted to be able to connect with people and have them fully connect with me. There were times where the two friends I first made right when I came to college, would go home or leave town and I would just feel stuck in my residence hall, not knowing how I was going to create the experiences I wanted. When I recognized this I joined clubs, volunteered, and left my room to study and was able to meet people and find passion by getting inspiration from others. This had led to where I am today, living the better days that I never thought I would live.

If you’re not in college, change up your daily routine, leave your “bubble” and bump into random people, you will find your passion, true friends, and live your better days!

This post was not only inspired by my experience, but the struggles others around me have been facing, and by the song I recently found on my Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify called Better Days, by Hedly. So I hope this gave you all hope!

Some lyrics from the song I will end with~

I don’t wanna waste a minute
But if I gotta waste a minute
I’d spend the time tryna’ get my vibe on track
And if I’m on a star, don’t wanna spin it
My life’s up in flames, and I lit it
I wonder if I’ll ever get that good s*** back
And I’ll keep praying I make it
Like someone worth saving
I still got some fight left inside me’

I’ve been down, I’ve been down
Burning up like fever
Better days, better days
Are not so far away
I’ve been lost, I’ve been found
Now I believe in
Better days, better days
Are not so far away

That’s all for inspirational Sunday!

Logging out, Helen 🙂
