Don't Worry, Be Happy!

I heard an amazing quote today, "Worrying won't stop the bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good." While I do not know who said this quote, I do know that I will be reminding myself of it from now on. It is a very true statement. We shouldn't be wasting our precious time worrying about something we cannot control.

I am guilty of being one of those people who does this. I have spent too much time on stressing about things I cannot control than I have looking at the good things in my life. This blog is a dedication to some of blessing in my life.

I am very lucky to have such a close family. I am close with all of my grandparents and see them often. I also have a 2-year-old niece that I am obsessed with. Family is the most important thing in my life.

Aside from an amazing family, I also have wonderful friends that I can always count on. I have some who have known me my whole life and I have others who have been by my side through college. They are all important to me.

I have been blessed with good health. That is something I remember to be thankful for every single day. I am also thankful for the opportunity of attending college. A hectic as things are with deadlines, applications and broke college problems, I would not trade a single thing about this crazy, fun and beautiful life of mine.


  1. Alex, I love that quote! I am guilty of worrying about things that are out of my control too. I try to appreciate everything, the big and the small. I know we have bad days and we stress over things that are out of our control, but the ability to look at your blessings (like you did in this post) is extremely important to maintaining our happiness. I can say that I am thankful that I have you in my life and you help me maintain happiness, even on my most difficult days. Oh, and happy early birthday!

  2. Alex,
    I love don't worry, be happy myself but this quote is amazing as well. I am guilty of being the biggest worry wort when it comes to a lot of aspects in my life. I need to realize I shouldn't stress over what I can't control. I am thankful for what I have and I should keep what I love close to me. Thank you for helping me realize this.
