It is. Lately I've been getting so much crappy news....news that I actually have no control over. The obvious thing to do is to be sad, angry, gloomy and all around pessimistic (well I'm always pessimistic). But then I think to myself, no matter how I feel, it's not going to change anything. So why not turn it around and be positive. Do something creative. MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!
The day is what you make of it so why not make it a good one. Life is definitely short and sometimes unexpectedly shorter.
