It’s all about perspective: it’s easy to look at a moment in life and be upset with it, or feel like nothing is going your way. Some days I’m down, and I wonder how did I get this low…but then there’s moments like right now: as I stumble on the pictures I took a few days ago of my brother and my godchild. Whatever problems anyone is having around them, they sure didn’t get the memo. They’re as carefree as anyone could dream of being.

It’s pictures like this one, that tell me to stop pouting, get over myself, and just live. So if there’s something bothering you—just like something is bothering me—take a step back, and remind yourself how blessed you really are.
