Our lives are filled with negativity. Bad news. Difficult decisions. Global challenges. Induced insecurities. Fear. Life can be a struggle at times. Being negative is easy. Being positive is difficult. Seeing things in optimistic ways and appreciating the little things doesn’t come easy. It requires you to take a step back, and look at the world around you. Beauty can be found everywhere, you just need to see it.

Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times. — Aeschylus
