The world in which we live in is filled with an immense amount of beauty, and in order to recognize this we should begin to enhance the positivity around us. Spreading peace and positivity to our peers around us, allows us to shine as individuals.
As high schoolers we tend to dwell on the negatives, and complain about simple things that in the end were never worth the stress we allowed it to have. I know for me personally, I sometimes have a pity party for myself, and I begin to complain about all of my classes and homework, focusing on all the negative things in my life. I begin to be filled with a triumphant amount of unnecessary stress, that has built up from all of my own negativity.
I've found that the best way to get rid of this negativity is to bring about a positive mindset, and focus on all the good things in life that I have been blessed with. Personally, I’ve discovered that nothing good comes about negativity, and all that becomes of it is stress.
Stress is something we all deal with, and it’s one of those things in our lives that we wish would just vanish away from this Earth, but unfortunately it’ll always be there. One thing we can do is attempt to get rid of as much negativity as possible, and begin to engulf ourselves with the beauty of life and the world that we live in.
This can be difficult for some of us at times, as we are high schoolers. We are filled and consumed with school, sports, sleep, social life...the list is infinite. We are so focused on striving to get all of these things done, that we begin to feel, and be consumed with an incredible amount of stress. It's such a huge factor in our lives as we are figuring out who we are as people, and we are finally beginning to figure out what it is that we want to be when we grow up.
This stress will always be apparent in our lives, but in order to put an end to this stress we should begin to bring about positive vibes around us. Spreading about positivity amongst your peers, teachers, family, and classmates will help bring about a positive and stress free atmosphere.
When you focus on the good things in life, and spread as much positivity as you possibly can you will feel an immense amount of stress lift from your shoulders. In order to be successful, we must first be happy with ourselves and the beauty that is within us. As "success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success."
