The Confident List

Here's something I just recently thought of doing. Make a playlist on your ipod or mp3 player, but only put songs that make you extremely happy and want to dance without caring. Set your alarm clock to wake you up with this list. Go to this play-list whenever someone makes you feel incompetent, and know that they are wrong.

Only YOU can let someone make you feel that way. And only you can push yourself into a better mood.

Whenever my boyfriend or I are starting out the day in a cranky mood, we usually text each other saying the day is going to be great, awesome, amazing, fabulous. Whatever perky and over the top adjective we can come up with, we use. I'm not sure about him, but it usually makes me smile when he tells me "Today is going to be so awesome that you'll be throwing up awesomeness all over."

Shaping your character

Last night i went to the movies with a friend to see "Post Grad," with Alexis Bledel. While it really wasn't anything to write home about, I found myself vastly interested in the upcoming movies previewed in the coming attractions.

One of these films was An Education.

Now, I'm not sure of the exact quote, but it was something a long the lines of "We build character by doing things. If we never did anything, we would never be anyone."

This started me pondering on our modern society and how screwed up our communication is.

I'm not really one to judge, since I'm guilty of logging into Facebook much more than once a day. However, we live day to day by these digital windows. We are attached to our iphones, ipods, cameras, computers, and many more which I'm sure are in development. And we do nothing.

We do absolutely nothing as we waste our time trying to get a glimpse into other people's lives. How very sad.

I'm not sure who I want to be, or exactly what I want to do, and that may change every day for the rest of my life. I'm disastrously bad at making concrete decisions.

Yet, I do know that I desire to make something of myself. I want to be good at something and leave some kind of mark on the world with the life that I have been granted.

I don't want to waste away in this digital age.
