Everyone is fighting an overwhelming feeling that things are getting worse, that we should be doing more, that were not good enough. Well, life isn’t perfect. There have always been problems and there always will be. You can fight for the things you believe in, you can work really, really hard, but you shouldn’t lose track of the fact that while youre doing all that, life is flying by at lightning-fast speed. If you actually take a breath and look around youll realize youre actually doing great.

It’s time to refocus, enjoy it all, and stop waiting for something better!
