I keep seeing all the bad news, gross things and world events that make me sick...
And I have to remind myself not to get caught up in all the bad...There’s so much good in the world if I’m willing to look for it.
Maybe it’s not as obvious as war, politics and crime,but it’s still there. While I’m never going to stick my head in the sand and turn a blind eye to the world around me, but I’ve learned it’s up to me to make my own sunshine sometimes; I’m the one who will see the good in people, love myself and see the light- even when it’s storming all around me...I can choose to let the rain drown me in sorrow or I can look above the storms to see the beautiful sunlight just waiting to be found. It’s not easy to keep a positive outlook and just be happy when everything is crashing down around me, but I can do it !!!
I have to fight for my happiness and take back my power so that nothing or no one can make me feel badly if I don’t want to…
And that’s a hard thing to do. If it’s to be, it’s up to me…To see the silver lining, to surround myself with good people...sometimes, just to go where the love is !!!
I’m leaving behind all the toxic people and staying away from the places that bring me down...I’m better than that and I’m going to work on being the best person I can be.
After all, happiness is a choice and more than anything, I choose myself every day in every way…And I’m walking towards the sunlight every day, no matter how hard it’s raining...Some days, it’s pouring, so I keep pushing forward, regardless of how badly I feel or how hard it is. This is my life and my journey, so I promised myself a long time ago that I would never settle, give up or be unhappy; and that’s one promise I intend to keep !!!
