This is, indefinitely, my new favorite quote! I'm only surprised I didn't come across it sooner because I couldn't not have explained better my own philosophy of life- this is it.

Haven't been able to find a 'good' version of this in so long. One of my all-time favorites!  "with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."    Desiderata Poster by Matt Dominguez, via Behance
