Lately I feel like the universe has been out to get me. I have definitely been riding the struggle bus all week. I started the week by falling and breaking my phone. And then today, while I was going to grab dinner with a friend, my tire blew out on the interstate. While I was sitting in my car with my friend I just started crying and complaining about everything that had gone wrong. That was when my friend told me to stop looking at everything so negatively. She said to find a bright side. Like, the fact that we were both safe. Material things can be fixed.
As Humans, we always look at the bad things in life. When something horrible happens to us, we think that it’s the end of the world. You know what….? It’s not! Shit happens sometimes and you just have to roll with. Instead of dwelling on the bad, We should be thinking about the good in our life. I don’t know why some things happen the way they do. But, what i do know is that we can over come anything. We just have to believe in ourselves and find the bright side.
