It’s Okay To Make The Best Of Any Situation

It’s okay to be happy. In spite of whatever is going on around you.  During whatever happens that you cannot control.  When everyone around you is not happy.  When no one wants you to be happy.  When there is no logical reason in sight to be happy. It’s okay to accept the things you cannot…
