#52ListsProject: Week 3

This week's list couldn't have come at a better time. As yesterday's post depicted, I'm a little down in the dumps right now. I'm having a hard time finding motivation and an even harder time being genuinely happy. The last time I struggled this much was my sophomore year of college, and that was a very low time for me.

Lucky for me, todays' list is all about the happy moments in life. Which gave me some perspective. Things in a bubble always seem worse than things in perspective. Thinking about the big picture and the grand scheme of things is really what's getting me through right now.

Week 3: List the Happiest Moments of Your Life So Far.

  1. Getting accepted to UGA.
  2. Joining a CrossFit gym and learning to love fitness again.
  3. My internship interview at Augusta National.
  4. Getting accepted to Ohio University for grad school. 
  5. Finally doing an unassisted pull-up.
  6. The 2007 Blackout game against Auburn. 
  7. Raising $335,497.26 for UGA HEROs in 2014
  8. Graduating from UGA
  9. The entirety of my senior year spring break cruise. 
  10. Finishing a half-marathon (or two).
  11. Cinco de Mayo of 2014. 

I have minimal photo evidence of these things (unless Carla was there-- then there's definitely pictures), which I think is a testament to how I generally live my life. It's not about documenting everything I do, despite what Snapchat and the resulting FOMO may have me think. Just simply living in those moments is what makes them great. Although, I do wish somebody had video of me when I got accepted to UGA. That was quite a scene. 

Reflecting on the happy things in life was definitely a good pick-me-up today. I'm glad I got to spend some time working on this post to give me a quick attitude boost. 

Happy Humpday!
