I have gotten a few people make comments to me about how perfect my life is. And well, it’s pretty good, but my life isn’t all unicorns and rainbows (contrary to what it may look like from my Instagram feed). I have had some really big challenges that I don’t always choose to share on social media since I feel like it’s often a private thing to experience and overcome with close friends and family. That being said, I have found a big part of happiness is perspective. Be positive and put that attitude out into the world and it often follows you. It is easier said than done at times, but I often find when I am going through a rough time, helping others or doing something kind for others not only makes me feel better, but brings good karma my way. When you find that you have the power to be optimistic, you discover your power to be happy. That, my friends, is true joy.
