Day Seven

My day was really good as I felt like all of my virtues went pretty well. Tranquility was successful today, especially after my fitness class where we did yoga. It was honestly a really relaxing way to start the day. It gave me a lot of peace to face the stresses of the beginning of the week.

I did fairly well on patience today. The reason I say that is because I really didn’t have anything in my day that made me anxious or feel overwhelmed to the point where I had to breathe and just be patient. So, it was a really positive day but I wasn’t really able to work on that virtue which I think is an accomplishment in itself. 

Moderation was great as I was able to spend time with my friends a lot today, which is something that I haven’t been able to do much of lately. I have been focusing on homework and getting ahead for the week as well as resting from tennis and recovering. I am so sore after playing all weekend!

Order was alright because I have been putting things away in my room and from my suitcase but it’s still pretty messy. I feel like I need to really commit once to cleaning it all up and starting fresh but it has been really hard for me to just set aside time to do that. 

Joy was great today because I got to be with my friends. They bring me a lot of happiness and just being around them makes me feel lucky and grateful to have them in my life. I really want to prioritize time with them because I am always so much better-off when I get to see them. 

I hope all of you have had a good start to your week!
