There is a whole lot of Yuck happening right now around the world, and while I know it’s important to know what is going on, there are times when I need to just take a few steps back and just focus on what is immediately around me. Focus on my family and all of the things I am grateful for, but always conscious of the things that I can do to hopefully make the world better in some way. Sometimes simply deciding to smile when all you want to do is cry can make a difference. I can’t personally focus too much on everything that is wrong in the world, so I choose to focus on what is right. I choose to remain an optimist.
