The Little Things

“It was the morning of Hurricane Joaquin and I decided to take a walk through CW to cheer myself up, and to escape from my house. I stopped at Aromas to have coffee, and this lovely old man that was sitting near me turned to me and says, ‘How can you be so happy with everything that goes on in a college student’s life?’ At first, I didn’t know what he was saying because I wasn’t very happy at the moment, I wasn’t radiating happiness, I was probably radiating stress because it was in the middle of midterms. I thought, okay, I have to answer his question, he seems like a very nice, friendly person. So I thought about it for a bit and then said, ‘I think you have to find some little thing in your day that brings joy to you. Because there is always something every day to be grateful for whether it’s seeing your best friend on campus and running up and giving them a hug, or a phone call from your mom saying I’m making your favorite dinner tonight and saying, I wish you were here. I don’t know, there are just so many little things that if you choose to see as happy, can change everything.’”
