Hello♡ So aside from transforming your entire life to get rid of whatever is worth complaining about, what happens when you come across a situation you cannot change? Venting emotions is completely normal and is healthy to an extent, but constantly pulling oneself down by seeing the dark side of every unalterable situation is honestly quite senseless and a waste of time the more you think of it. The more we continue to centralize the negative areas in life, it will be even more impossible for us to notice the positive atmosphere surrounding us.✌️
As I grew older-well okay, literally the years I felt like I have matured the most aka senior year in high school till now-and life on my own started, I woke up a few days ago and decided I was going to wake up with a positive attitude excited for what the day may bring, and if it does not turn out the way I hoped it would, I would brush it off and remind myself that everything else is ok. I do not even know why or how I woke up with that attitude, but I believe the peace of Christ has helped me to realize that there is so much more to life than the little things we complain about. As I said in my last blog post, meditating on the peace of Christ and then seeking positivity throughout your day can transform your whole perspective on life and generally make you a happier person. The phrase “having a positive attitude” reminds me of hearing my mom share with others about how she stays so positive all the time and that her secret was to wake up with positive attitude to start her day, and from experience of living with her the past everyday of my life, she is the legitimately happiest and loving person I know. #Shoutout2MyMa ha. Going along with having a positive mindset, find yourself at the position you are in and seek the positivity in it. Rather than focusing on a small negative part of life, do not let the entire spectrum of positivity and endless possibilities of what could be pass by.. Wake up each morning and think of a bunch of lovely things that could happen, and smile because it simply is cute and it makes you happier. :)
A shorter post, but hope it would refresh and remind everyone that the world is not such a bad place after all. Look closely and seek positivity throughout life. ♡
Love, Christianne xx

Helloo♡ So, college life; the things you hear about the stress that goes with it: a booked schedule and an overflowing amount of assignments, and for some: the pressure of finding out what to do in life and if you really want to pay to learn how to do that, how to get the money to pay it off, worrying about “freshman 15”-ew, and so forth may be all true for some, or at least a good percentage would say they have experienced being stressed out by worrying about one or a few of the following. However, personally, the main thing that I needed help with was time management and simply being away from home. I used to be so worn out from these thoughts, and I admit it was hard for the first few weeks until peace transformed my whole outlook on these situations.
Clear Your Mind
When you think everything is falling apart, gather all your thoughts into one place and ask questions. How did you get to this point? What causes you to feel this way? Do you want to start back from scratch? Are you wasting time? Are you letting these things control your happiness in life? And do you really want to let go of new opportunities that could happen tomorrow? -some of these questions were rhetorically asked by my parents which encouraged and guided me to think of the huge path I am yet to discover in the very near future. These thoughts helped calm me down and made me aware of any future regrets I could have if I missed out on this part of the journey. Yes, life can be hard, but it is your choice how you choose to see it. Clear your mind of any negativity, and take a peek at what could be.
This past week was extremely busy for me and I worried a lot. As I said in the beginning, time management was so nerve-racking for me: setting enough time aside for homework, making time to talk with my parents, going to classes, scheduling meals, attending any activities, studying for any tests or quizzes coming up, and putting aside some time to rest, sleep, and do the things I wanted to do. But the way I learned to cope with it was to not worry and focus too much about it. I had to calm down, chill, and take a moment to know that everything was going to be fine. Have a system, keep bettering yourself at it, and make the best of each moment. Once you realize that you are just going to deal with life being this way, focus on the positive things you can benefit from this part of your expedition and strike all moments to its fullest.
Seek The One Who Comforts All
It has been established that I was definitely worn out this week, but a pro from living on campus, my hall has a meeting every once a week that helps me go through it. Not only did my parents encouraged me to keep seeking Jesus and find my peace in Him, but God also showed me that I am not the only one facing this area of my life and that He comforts all to encourage and remind each other that He is always there for you. It is really cool how God ties everything together when it involves His Word and sharing the same beliefs with fellow brothers and sisters. With Him I found my rest and His peace and love comforts me.
No matter what present situation you are in, meditate on life and The One who gives you life. Live your life in peace and learn to seek positivity in everything and its surroundings. xx
Love, Christianne xx

Goodbye, and Hello
Hello:) First off I would like to apologize for not posting any blog posts in a while; as some of you may already know, I am in college right now studying and majoring in Journalism. Life has been so busy, but now since I finally managed some time for blogging, I am going to push myself even further and will try to post a blogpost every Sunday at around 7PM EST because I love and thank all of you who follow/read my posts.♡
Today I am talking about transitioning into a new environment: experiencing being on your own where no one knows you and settling down. I am excited to experience and share this marvelous journey of beginning this new chapter in my life and hope that the college-level knowledge I will possibly intake from school will have a positive effect as I begin to blog again. Ha:)
Leaving My Past Behind.
Considering a lot of people in mind, a massive amount of them would think leaving somewhere you are used to and being on your own to is going to be a scary/dreadful journey-especially for me since I am the youngest and only girl in my family. I know a lot of people thought my parents would even move out here just to be closer to me-do not know where that came from-or have thought of the possibility of me coming back home because of homesickness.
Before I left for college, I always thought opposite. I have always had the mindset of going to new places, being on my own, and living in a new area where no one knows me were going to be the best things ever. Well, I was right. It is amazing. Do not get me wrong, I miss my family loads and a few people here and there back home, but I love a time for a fresh start and every opportunity to build new memories and enjoy every moment that is brought up. There is nothing like painting on a blank canvas. Though there were some things, people, or situations that were in my past, the only thing I can do is to let them stay there, let them know that they made me stronger, and to continue living my life. Being away gives me this opportunity of starting a new beginning, building new friendships, and applying everything I have learned to strive for a more better and mature me.
In a sense, I do not think settling down completely would be a good thing to do otherwise life would get boring quite easily. Settle down in a sense by being comfortable in supporting that new chapter of your life with new experiences. At first, leaving my parents behind was definitely a hard thing to do, but then I realize that life goes on and sometimes you have to be on your own to do what you want to do. This is the longest I have ever been away from my family, but with this liberty gives me the time to clear my mind, let me mature a bit more, and grow into the woman I choose to be.
I know there are going to be people who still might not like me for the way I think or do things, but I keep in mind that there are also going to be people who will love me for being me. People come and go, and you enter in their lives and leave. The only way of getting used to where you are is to not because life is full of surprises; any moment could be your chance to change your life or someone else’s.
By the words of the always handsome Jack Dawson played by my favorite actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, “I figured life is a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it.”♡
Thanks for reading:)
