I Don't Do Perky

Life sucks. That's a fact. Don't give me those positive meme regurgitations you keep seeing on FB and IG. Save it. There are moments of happiness in between, but by and large, life is filled with disappointment, sadness, health issues, tough decisions and endless uncertainty. But that doesn't have to define our life experiences. All of these negatives can be seen for what they are and then we can begin to move forward, having been bettered, even enriched, by them. Forward motion is a choice though. Choose wisely.
