X, Chamomile & Deadlines

What ever happened to Midterm breaks being the time to lounge? Gone are the days when teachers gave homework, and you’d never do it, then go to school the next week praying they forgot about it. Then it was fun, there was never really any consequences – well apart from detention, and maybe being a bit slower than those who did it. University is a different ball game, if you don’t do the work…you won’t get the grade, and even if you do do the work, you might not get the grade you think you deserve. Sigh.

Ed Sheeran keeps me on track though, as well as the calming effects of Chamomile tea. Which brings me to the title of this post. X, I can’t get enough of this album. I’ve literally had it on replay for more than two weeks. EVERY song on the album is a hit…to me anyway.

A little tip: get a head start on the workload as soon as possible, so they don’t pile up (easier said than done, but doable)

Below are some of my fave songs from the album.

MOTIVATION: The Enemy within

Often times than not we doubt ourselves, for various reasons.

WE get in  the mindset of self-deprecation/sabotage, a feeling of not being “good enough”. What exactly is good enough? Good enough, to whose standards?

If for whatever reason your path in life isn’t good enough for you, then by all means please aspire to be better, rise above the odds, but do it for you, and in doing so, remember to release negative thoughts, do your best and let God do the rest.

Be happy and enjoy life – if for nothing, for the fact that you slept yesterday, opened your eyes today and are reading this right now.

Believe me it’s easier said than done, even those we consider the best struggle with this, but it helps to think positively and compliment yourself for the good enough things in your life.
