Happy New Year everyone!!
It is so exciting to be back at Truman for the spring semester. Fall semester definitely had its ups and downs, but there’s something so encouraging about a fresh start. Whether your goals this year are to think more positively, read good books, learn to cook, volunteer somewhere, or discover your passion for running (more power to ya), Cardinal Key wishes nothing but success in your efforts.
The best thing about success is that it looks different to everyone. There is no one path to success. Some days, success will look like achieving a skill that you’ve worked at for weeks or months. Other days, success will be measured by accomplishing one task on your sometimes endless to-do lists. The important thing is to take it in strides, give yourself plenty of grace, and recognize that you’re doing the best that you can. Progress is hardly ever linear and it is absolutely OKAY if we have to stop and reevaluate our goals.
Wherever this new year finds you, consider 2018 as an opportunity for growth. It’s important not to dwell on the past, but take the time to practice thankfulness and being present in every situation that life brings you. You are loved, you are alive, and you have purpose. You bring joy to the people around you in ways that you will never realize and you have so much to offer the world. In a time where there is so much hurt, uncertainty, and strife in our world–your small deeds can create a ripple effect that touches a multitude of people. That is such an exciting thought!
Everyday is a new opportunity to live your best life.
So much CK Love,
