There is a lot of shit in the world.
And I'm glad there are people who are working to clean it up.
I, myself, worked for two years as a counselor for severely emotionally disturbed young boys.
Violent, neglected children.
It drained me. I couldn't keep it up.
But I'm SO grateful to the people who do: The teachers, the social workers, the people who spend their Saturdays feeding the poor.
I started to feel guilty that I wasn't doing more of that.
Then I realized that there are two ways you can battle the shit in the world.
You can fight the negativity.
Or you can promote the positivity.
BOTH are required.
Consider me a positivity warrior to the core.
