#ThriftyThursday: "Life is good"
#ThriftyThursday: Before I packed my bags and moved away from my quaint small town to pursue my college career, I had a come-to-Jesus meeting with myself. I realized that I needed to be happy. From the inside out, I had to be happy with my decisions, my life, and myself. This meant more than sporting a sweet smile and pretending life was full of candy and kittens.
You’re wondering where this is going.
I was shopping at the Taylorsville Road location two weeks before I moved into my dorm at the University of Kentucky. I found these two shirts. (The ones pictured to the right.) Besides being pink, they spoke to me: “Life is good.” Did I believe it in the moment? Sort of, but not really. To be honest, I had not experienced “adulting” and independence. I had not experienced a good life on my own.
Within a month, I began to love these two shirts.
Life was, and still is, hard – but it is so good. I have learned that when you project happiness, or in my case wear it, you begin to feel it.
Happiness: it is great. Mine came from a Goodwill find because life is oh-so good.
