Spring break came and spring break went, and as I sit sipping my coffee after my first full day of classes, I can’t help but long for summer.
I mean honestly, my mouth is watering just from the thought of ice cream on the beach.
But that has me thinking about how it’s so easy to live life “vacation-to-vacation.”
“I can’t wait for summer,” or, “I can’t wait for fall break…and winter… and then spring break…” Insert any season or holiday vacation – You name it, I’ve said it.
And while I think it’s normal for many people to think that way, I don’t think it’s healthy. Of course we need vacations and we all want a break, but we shouldn’t want or need this all the time.
We should live happily and healthily. We should never overwhelm ourselves with so many tasks or so much work that we feel suffocated.
And as I sit here typing this, I realize I’m actually not really dying for summer to come. The break from classes will be nice, yes, but I’m living very happily. And here’s why –
At 20 years young, I’m 99 percent positive I have found the key to life.
Survey says? Surround yourself with good people.
Surround yourself with people who inspire you, who support you, who make you laugh when you want to cry, and most of all, surround yourself with people who challenge you to be the best person you can be.
At 20 years young, I am happy to say I have found one person who embodies all those traits.
I would not be who I am and where I am without the support of my best friend you see in the video, Spencer Dennis
We do everything together… and whether it’s sitting at home watching House of Cards (my current status), peddle boating through Tempe Town Lake or visiting the latest exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum… we are happy. (Even when it’s not as romantic as you think it might be!)
But of course, we tend to take more photos at the art museum… so check out our little excursion below!
