Simple but powerful reminders that YOU matter, and you are VALUED!
Life is too short to…
Life is too short to focus on things that don’t matter. Preserve your energy for things that move you forward.
Life is too short to love people who don’t love you. You deserve the good love you’ve been giving. It is okay to expect reciprocity. Find people who match your love, return your love, and without question show love, unconditionally.
Life is too short to waste time. You have a purpose. You have a calling. Your time here on earth should be spent fulfilling those things.
Life is too short to settle. You are worth more than what you’ve been settling for. See the value in you and set a standard for everything and everyone you meet.
It’s Spooky Season!
No tricks – all treats! All students are encouraged to wear a Halloween costume on campus or take a selfie in your costume and post it on your favorite social media channel – don’t forget to tag @PostUniversity so we can celebrate all the scary good fun.
