Getting back to the basics in life can be very therapeutic. Sometimes running from problems isn't an option. Sometimes you have to woman up, grit your teeth, and smile in the face of the storm. Too often we use social media to show a perfect snapshot of our happiest moments, while never admitting when we have a bad day or a failure. It's ok to have a hard time, it's ok to show it and be real.
The entire last week I have been freezing cold, wet, and exhausted. I've been scared at times, lonely, and even doubted myself. At the same time I have been surrounded by astounding beauty and kind, supportive people. You can't always choose your situation, but you can ALWAYS choose your reaction.
I choose to smile.
