This year is going to be the best one yet for many reasons. I’ve been thinking about it lately and I believe that the year will be all that you make it to be. If you have a positive attitude, this year will be great; all the opportunities are in order for it to be that way.
For starters, this is an election year! I know the advertising and atmosphere around election time is annoying but overall an election is a chance for our country to be able to make use of its right to vote and to have free speech. We are so free in America and an election is almost like a celebration of that, we have the choice to vote change or to stick with who we have previously chosen. Everybody gets their say, and we all decide together.
The next reason might sound cliché but we’re all another year older! This year will automatically be better because not only can we take what we’ve learned with us, but we know what to expect. If you’re a freshman you might have a lot of unknowns but freshman year is exciting and a new start. If you’re older you have experience and can enjoy that. Let’s enjoy these college years and make the most of them.
My final reason that this year is going to be the best is that I want it to be. Sometimes that’s all it takes. My coach talks a lot about expectations; his theory is that if you expect to be great, you will be. I’m applying that to this school year. My mind set is going to be positive and I’m going to work really hard. How could it not be the best if I’m at my best?
Positive thinking, a good attitude, taking advantage of our rights, and what we have learned are all things that are going to propel this year to greatness. Everyone can have the best year ever; we just have to do it. Let’s enjoy 2012. Let’s do well in school. Let’s succeed in our endeavors, because we can.
