Motivational Monday

"Its what you learn after you know it all that counts."

Most of us have been through our teenage years and understand what this quote is about but there are always the people that kind of just get left behind when it comes to understanding the bigger picture. While we are young and without responsibilities we tend to think we are invincible, or we're pretty sure that we know how to do just about everything that there is to do in this world. I was lucky enough to be able to go to college and learn more about the "real" world in a different way, I was able to find things in addition to partying, and hanging out with friends, which was Social Work and Counseling something that I am passionate about. An occupation where I can actually get out there and make a difference. Not until this time did I really understand what this quote is saying, it's what you learn when you didn't expect to learn anything at all, when you have that light bulb above your head kind of feeling, like knowing what you are supposed to for the rest of your life.

The moral of this story is be open to new experiences, don't think that you know everything that there is to know, we as humans have the capability to continuously learn and grow, so take advantage of that. This week, take the time to learn about something that you have always been interested in but never took the time to explore. You may discover a new talent, friend, partner, or hell if you don't get anything good out of it at least you will have figured out what you don't like! Take advantage of the opportunities that appear before you!! "A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities; an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties."

Always remember, positive thoughts = positive emotions

Peace, Love, & Happiness
