It is still a beautiful world :)

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
Max Ehrmann - Desiderata

I love this piece of Desiderata, it is so profound. This really speaks to everything I see life to be, through all the challenges, life is beautiful. Our job in this life is to experience joy. With joy you can love, and you can experience all that is good. Max Ehrmann spoke of this in the 1920's, how insightful he was. We are all a part of this expansive, loving and beautiful universe, each and every one of us. Make it your goal today to stop and look for the beauty, and look around to see who shares a kind smile with you. Smile back, and share your positive energy with the world. Remember that in challenging and sometimes dark times you are a child of the universe, be cheerful and strive to be happy.

I am happy.
I am one with the universe.
I am love.
I am limitless.
