"Imagine" is such a great song.
It just came on my Pandora station (again can I reiterate...Pandora rocks my world) and I forget how peaceful it makes me. I'm in a very contemplative mood right now. I just read about someone's blog who got murdered, basically, and she talked a little about priorities in life. It kind of got me thinking...
...what are my priorities?
I kind of had this moment about a week ago, when I had my breakdown about school, my scholarship, money, where I'm going in life, etc. That weekend, and after talking with my mom and after advice from various other people, I kind of realized where my priorities were in life. It was rather cathartic. I realized what is really important, what doesn't necessarily need to be stressed over, and how I'll be a happier person if I can figure out my priorities.
Really, it is rather therapeutic. If you are ever overwhelmingly stressed, take a moment in your day, write down what is most important to you aside from what you're stressing over, write down who is most important to you, and after thinking about it for a little while, you'll start to realize that ya, stressing can push you to do better, but you also need to remember that sometimes sacrificing your sanity to stress just isn't worth it.
