Everyday A to Z

By Lauren Hoppa
Distinguished Young Woman of Colorado for 2012

“Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.”

 – Humphry Davy

It may be an over used saying that “the little things make all the difference.” However, even though each little thing may seem insignificant by itself, the culmination of them all can be incredible. Here is my top A to Z little things to do to make any day or life just a little bit better!

A accept what you can’t change and focus on what you can

B – be open to new opportunities
C– create a new memory every day
D – determination
E – exercise
F – find a new club/activity/sport to try
G – give a little of your time back to the community
H – have hope
I – invent a new goal for yourself
J – jokes! There’s always a good witty line to make you smile J
K – keep focused on the bigger picture rather than minor set backs
L – laugh….a lot!
M – make connections with all types of people
N – never give up
O – outgoing
P – patience
Q – quit procrastinating
R – recognize the positive things you see in yourself
S – sing
T – take chances
U – use mistakes as ways to grow
V – visit with friends from the past
W – wake up and say “Today will be great!”
X – x-ray through different personalities to see the positive in    everyone
Y – yoga
Z – zumba….because we all have to dance at some point

Much love,
