Life is a journey that we all must travel through. Some of us spend the majority of our lives experiencing hardship with sometimes no sight of relief. I used to think that, that was an excuse to view things in a negative light. There are so many distractions in this world that help to contribute to unhappiness, I just wish we all had the strength to see through it. Life only happens when you experience struggle. Struggle is a tool that’s made to give you drive, an understood purpose. I was once in a place where the future seemed non-existent. Negative thoughts sometimes outweigh the positive, and before you realize it your entire life is consumed by negativity. I am truly blessed to be able to say that, that is no longer a concern of mine. People as individuals need to learn how to appreciate and find the beauty in the small and simple thing in and of life. I know for some people that’s more easily said than done, but I can assure you that it’s not impossible. It all begins with taking a little time to learn yourself, and figuring out what it is that makes you happy. I just want to do what I can to encourage “everyone” to find something to smile about. Even if you have to be goofy with yourself while you’re alone to produce a smile, do it! There are some people in this world that seem to forget that we only have one life to live. It would be a sad waste if you didn’t at least try to make the most of it. We all need to love ourselves, as well as everyone else!
