Love this post Kris! I personally fight with maintaining and caring for my happiness like it is an endangered species. I wrap myself in optimism and keep going. My family and friends caring compassionate love for me now define my life. I keep smiling and fighting in the dark times and are too damn willfully ignorant of any reason why I should be depressed and down.
Thank you for backing up my agency in my power to define my own happiness despite all the bad things happening to us all.
