Every so often I find myself searching for positivity…this usually happens late at night when I am reflecting on my life and worrying about the future. I tell myself to simply “Strive to be happy”…this is when Max Erhmann’s Desiderata comes to mind.
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 with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
– Max Ehrmann 1927
