Becoming a Better Me

This week I begin the start of my second semester at Mizzou. With so many laughs and memories from first semester I can not wait to see what the rest of my freshman year has in store for me. Even though first semester was rough in a few spaces, I would say it has been an overall great experience so far. Right now I am the happiest I think I have ever been. I have a family who loves me and a boyfriend that means the world to me. That is such an awesome feeling! While everything may be hunky-dory right now, I have some major plans for the upcoming months.

I plan on making changes in myself. I am going to frequent the Rec and become toned again. Maybe I will even work on my fear of heights and work up the courage to rock climb more often. Of course it is great to work out and become healthier, but I also want to make changes mentally.

I would like to become more of a positive person. Whenever I am having a bad day I am going to make myself write down all of the things in life I am blessed to have. I am also going to tell the people I care about how much they mean to me more often. I feel like starting with little steps like those will easily transform into being more of an upbeat and happier person.

I am excited to see where my life will be 4 months from now. These small changes can lead to even bigger changes, but I’m willing to take the risk! I have family, friends and Landon by my side to help me along the way and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
