My mom always says, “We plan, and God laughs”. Boy does that statement resonate with me more than ever.
I’m at a pivotal point in my life where I’m learning the art of resilience and looking at life’s challenges as opportunities rather than signs of doom. It’s no secret that change and uncertainty are two things I’ve come to dread, but now I’m finding that the unknown is slowly becoming an old friend that I can depend on.

To all my fellow humans who are going through tough times, feeling down and out, and just plain feeling defeated, this one is for you.

I’m going to revel in the beauty of today and how gorgeous it is. I actually almost want to play hooky at work and frolic in the sunshine!
Alas, I still have responsibilities that I cannot shirk, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do them with a smile on my face! I plan on infecting the people I come into contact today with my great mood! I hope everyone else has a great day too!
