If you follow me on Tumblr you may have seen that on there it says: “Show the world all your positivity and happiness” and I think that’s very important. So when I saw that Dagmar started a tag all about positivity, I thought I should fill this out and share it with you on my blog.
What’s your favorite quote and why?
I’ve got two at the moment: “Just be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” – Oscar Wilde & “Don’t feel stupid if you don’t like what everyone else pretends to love.” – Emma Watson. The first is one I’ve been trying to live by for a couple of years now. When I started high school I found this one and it stuck with me since then. And the second one is kind of an extension of the first one. I think Emma Watson is a very inspiring and also smart person and I just love this quote a lot.
What dream would you want to achieve in life?
I would love to travel the world. In 2013 I went to New York and since that trip I’ve wanted to go to so many other places all over the world. But I would not only want to travel the world, I would also love to study abroad, like in the UK or America. That would such a great experience, but first I’ll have to finish college and work hard to get there of course… Fingers crossed!
What does happiness mean to you?
For me happiness is in the little things that make me laugh, feel welcome and appreciated. When somebody asks you how you are doing, when you finally buy something after saving for a long time and working hard for it for a long time or when you have a spontaneous fun afternoon with your family or friends.
Who can cheer you up?
That would be my friends and family of course. They notice right away when I’m not having a great day and try to cheer me up immediately. But also people with some sarcastic humor can really cheer me up. I love sarcastic humor the most and I could still be laughing about it the next day (sounds really pathetic but who cares right?).
What’s something people can wake you up for in the middle of the night?
This is a question I can answer with no doubt: pizza. When I think about it, I am already getting hungry. So when you wake me up in the middle of the night, bring some pizza otherwise I won’t be a very happy person…
When was the last time you almost cried of laughter?
When I think about it I almost start laughing again. Well, that must be on the train, on my way to school. We were talking about a really a TV show and a really funny part in the show and we all started laughing so hard. This actually happens almost every single day at school. One of us starts talking about something funny they’ve seen and we all start laughing so hard. It makes college also a bit fun instead of so serious all the time.
What achievement are you proud of?
Something I am proud of at the moment is getting my high school diploma. Some subjects were really hard and I was so nervous for the end results of my exams but in the end I passed without having to take one again. And I am also very proud that I got such great results in my first year of college.
What message would you like to pass on to others?
This is one I actually had to think about for a little bit. But something I’ve learned when I went through high school is: don’t be too hard on yourself. I used to be so hard on myself for the silliest things that didn’t even matter in the end. This doesn’t only have to at school but it can also be when you’re with your friends. Maybe one of your friends has better grades than you but that doesn’t mean yours aren’t good. You don’t have to be the best at everything. Appreciate what you have because those are the things that will make you happy.
And that’s already the end of the tag! When I saw it, I just had to fill it out. I think it’s very important to spread positivity everywhere. When you are in a positive environment, you will start to get a positive outlook on life as well. I also wanted to share another video of Katy with you like I did in a previous blog post. I think this kind of goes with this subject so if you would like to watch it, you can watch it here. Well, now I’m very curious: What do you think about this tag? Are you going to fill it out as well?
