Academics have turned me into a complete mess these past few weeks. Between ap exams and finals, I've found myself overthinking every missed point and the simplest of assignments.

After recently having an honest conversation with fellow Mogul, Jasmine Oang, I realized that I was losing sight of the bigger picture.

There are so many wonderful things happening in our life that allowing ourselves to get caught up in the little things is often unnecessary. Taking a deep breath and putting things into perspective can remind you that an 89 isn't the end of the world.

How do you make sure you're living life in the moment and not losing sight of what really matters?

    Ah it's a struggle. Some days I feel i wake up so grateful and then other days i catch myself thinking ahead too much and caught up in worry, you know?

      I completely feel. I feel myself spiraling into that state of uncertainty and have to remind myself that everything will be alright.

      I’m glad you’ve found some ways to calm yourself down. Sometimes I write myself little reminders to keep myself grounded and keep the “why” prevelant. It’s still a process though and I’m sure we’ll become better at it eventually. Recognizing there’s a problem is half the struggle right?
