Sometimes, it takes life handing you a steaming pile of dookie for you to see how precious life really can be. Sometimes, a thing that seems life shattering can actually be life saving.
Why is it that the same exact situation can happen to 2 people, with one falling apart, and one completely flourishing? I think the difference is positivity. Some people are hell bent on making the best of life. That is not to say that the process does not absolutely suck; it most definitely does. That is not to say that a positive person is happy all the time, with an unrealistic view of the world; everyone has down moments. But some people were just born to be survivors.
So today, I choose positivity. I am determined to make the most of this life, with all its struggles and all its joys.
