Always be grateful for what you have

Hey Hubbers,

I can’t believe its February already! 

If 2015 taught me anything it’s to always be grateful for what you have, during the good and the bad times. How many times have you heard people around you say “New Year, New Me”. I’m guilty, but it’s so important to remember to love yourself and never change who you are for anyone. 

It is amazing how much our world revolves around social media today. Seems as though there’s pictures of someone who’s fallen over posted online before anyone gets a chance to help them up. 

So many people now days take to social media to blow off steam about someone they have had a fight with and are now longer friends with. But in the end only embarrass themselves. 

No one is perfect, everyone wishes they could take back a moment in their lives, undo it and forget about it. Everybody makes mistakes, we are only human. 

High school and senior years are a mixture of good and bad times. It’s where you realise your worth, where you want to go in life, who is there for you, and who your true friends are. The truth is, at some point during your senior years of high school you will lose those who meant the most to you. But, it’s a time where you have to be the better person and remove the toxic ones from your life as hard as it is. 

My English teacher always told me, “Every flower must grow through dirt”, we wouldn’t be who we are if it wasn’t for the hard moments in our lives that push us to become stronger people. 

I recently saw on Facebook and plastered all over the news about Footballer Mitchell Pearce. It’s one thing to respect another individual’s privacy especially in a private place but it’s another to respect people’s privacy on social media. We are so tied up in a world of ‘do this’, ‘do that’, we are left not knowing right from wrong. 

We can only learn, grow and become better people when we make mistakes and experience things that change who we are. It’s so important to take our mistakes and turn them around into great life lessons, something we can always look back on later. 

“It’s okay to struggle to find our place in this world and the person who will take us for who and what we are. Sometimes we dress ourselves in layers that only get peeled away in the end, to leave us as we should be.” – Megan Hart 

See you next week Hubbers, that’s all from me.
