A word (or more) of advice…

Posted on

What’s the best advice I’ve ever received?

Generally, to try not to worry about things so much – to think about instances as ‘if it’s going to happen, it’ll happen’ rather than wasting my life worrying about whether it will or not.

I’m not going to pretend I’m perfect and I actually use this advice all the time, I’m still a big worrier. But comparing my first year of uni to the second, I was a bit less stressed in the second year. By thinking I can only do my best, and if my best isn’t quite good enough, then there really isn’t much I can do about it, really. And worrying that it wouldn’t be doesn’t help one bit!

A Dolly pearl of wisdom

Posted on

“The way I see it. if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain” – Dolly Parton.

This thinking has got me through quite a bit, remembering that not everything’s going to be fine and dandy all the time and you do have to work hard to get results.

University, assignments and exams, can cause me a lot of stress – the rain that I must go through to achieve the rainbow of good results and a great future.

I love this quote because it can be related to so many circumstances in life, everyone is bound to be caught in a downpour, but it helps realise that things will be okay in the end, we will see the rainbow 🙂
