put a smile on!

Sometimes you really never know how much the things you say to someone can impact their day...or even their lives! For this reason, I always try to remember the FISH! Philosophy we learned during Orientation training. The FISH! Philosophy has 4 parts: Be There, Play, Make Their Day, and Choose Your Attitude.

This was a philosophy that we utilized all throughout training and the summer as Orientation Leaders. But it didn't stop there, I continue to live by this philosophy along with the "Day One" mentality everyday.

Today, I saw my good friend and freshman year suitemate who was a little "down in the dumps". All I said to her was "choose your attitude" as she was walking away and you wouldn't believe the impact that one small phrase had on her. Check out her blog here!
