Study Abroad can have you pinching yourself in disbelief that you’re actually there one minute and the next leave you wishing you were somewhere else. It’s a strange juxtaposition of emotions that has its own unique challenges.
While a lot of self-growth can come of the various challenges you may face, it’s good to keep things in perspective. Your happiness on Study Abroad is a choice. It’s not something that can only exist back home or only when things are going perfectly abroad. Happiness is a way of being. It’s how you choose to react to the things that happen on your journey.
Are you someone who practices gratitude or do you focus on what’s lacking in your life? Is your mind open to accepting new and different things or are you often sitting in judgement of everything around you? How you show up matters and who you choose to be on Study Abroad will impact your experience.
Use Study Abroad to practice creating and spreading more happiness in your world!
