Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2015
I’ve been meaning to write about this particular topic for some time now but I’ve always put it off because I wasn’t sure it was interesting enough to read about. However, as the beginning of a new semester gets underway I think it’s now more relevant than ever.
The world of Distinguished Young Women is no stranger to hard workers, movers and shakers. Most of us wouldn’t be happy doing nothing meaningful with our lives. Although we may complain that there’s so much to do all the time, we wouldn’t be happy if there was nothing to be done. We all know this is true whether we like it or not. It’s part of what makes us distinguished! I’ve compiled a list of 10 things I’ve gathered from fellow DYWs on how to be a hard worker while enjoying life. Here we go!
Well there they are: the 10 things I’ve adopted to make a hard working and busy life very enjoyable. I hope you enjoyed what I’ve gathered and try them out when you feel you need to enjoy your life a little bit more. Remember: life is what you make of it, so make it good. God bless ya’ll.
