As I get older and life changes, things just aren't always as simple as they were when I was a kid or young adult. There are fewer get togethers with friends and vacations to look forward to. With that being said, I think it is important to find a silver lining in the little things life has to offer. If you woke up today with a cloud over your head, try to make your own sunshine. Think of something or someone that is a positive in your life, do something that makes you happy or just focus on the basics: you have a roof over your head, you are healthy, etc., etc.
