I've noticed lately that a lot of people have become depressed. With our world affairs seeming hopeless and the abundance of conflict, many are retreating inward.
Please remember that our world has been in conflict for centuries and people still figured out how to find happiness. When your day feels like it's too much to bear, take a deep breath and remind yourself that everything's going to be alright. As long as we're alive we can grab life by the horns and create a colorful moment.
Think of yourselves as artists and life is your canvas. Masterpieces are achieved by those who are inspired, by people, by experiences, by life. In order to make your masterpiece you have to truly live, laughing with tears streaming down your face. Life can be scary, but the pay-off is worth getting knocked down from time to time.
So, the next time that you feel defeated remember that it's the memory of defeat that makes the wins feel so spectacular.
