From the moment I was born to where I am today I have always been the the person to brighten the mood in any room I enter. It didn’t take me long to notice that negative energy always ended in negative results. Seeing how the world has so much death, disease, and heartbreak, I realized that there is no point or time to be focused on the bad things in life. This is the reason why I am, and always want to be, happy and energetic. That is why my one word is vibrant.
The dictionary definition of vibrant is “having or showing great life activity and energy” which is a great representation of who I am. In the beginning of the eight grade I became close friends with someone who had been recently diagnosed with leukemia. The day she told me that she found out that she had cancer, my vibrant attitude became shattered and dull. I could not believe what I had heard and it was extremely hard trying to be there for her knowing that I could not feel the pain she felt going through her surgeries and the amputation of her right leg. Seeing her like this took away my bright and happy energy because no one deserved to go through that. But I realized that to get her through it all she needed positive energy. Every time I saw her I didn’t know if that would be that last time, which was why every moment, every second counted. She needed that bright spirit, that loving energy to know that there is something to live for. She inspired me to make everyday a brighter day no matter what ups or downs or obstacles that appeared through life.
Being vibrant is being selfless because you are not thinking about yourself. Instead, you are thinking about how you can effect everyone’s day in a positive way. If people just focused on all the bad in the world, then no one could live life to the fullest. That is why I strive to be vibrant every single day.
