It's been an interesting couple of weeks over here.

I've had plenty of ups and downs and arounds and struggles. But it's all honestly given me an amazing perspective on where I am in life... And how blessed I actually am.

I go to the greatest university in the world.
And I'm getting an education that will take me everywhere I want to go in life. My peers and professors push me everyday to be a better me.

I have the greatest friends I could ask for.
They are always there for me when I need them. And they encourage me, and make me laugh when I want to cry, and tell me life ain't that hard when I think I'm dying.

I have an amazing internship.
I've been given an opportunity to do something I love every week while still being a college student. That doesn't happen to everyone and I now see it as an opportunity rather than a necessity.

I have a loving family.
When I feel like I'm dying and need to vent, my mother will listen and my dad will encourage me. My grandparents always point me in the right direction. And I can always count on that.

I'm in good health.
Such good health, in fact, that I can dedicate an hour or more of my time a day to workout. I'm also blessed to have some of the best trainers leading me towards a healthier life. And I am blessed enough to be able to eat right to maintain a healthy diet.

I have a path in life.
I know what I want to do, and what I need to do to get there. Which many people my age can't say they have figured out yet.

Needless to say, I've been counting my blessings these past few days. And it's definitely changed my whole mindset. It's so easy to sit around and feel sorry for yourself when you are stressed and feeling pressured or overwhelmed. But it's sometimes the greatest thing to just sit back and really count all of your blessings.

I leave you with this:
