What if we didn't have our opinions? What if all that we could do was to live, no, exist? What if all those who had died for us hadn't done so? What if we were criticized for every move that we made? What if we were still forced to do what the foreigners told us to do? We couldn't bear the light. We couldn't write. We couldn't speak. We couldn't eat. We couldn't live. Our lives cut short and our dreams struck down. Our tongues tied and our eyes stabbed. Our hearts broken and our minds dead. But are we grateful for the freedom that we have been granted, the freedom for which many died? I don't think so. We say that everybody should have the right to education when we ourselves employ child labourers to clean our houses when they should be studying. We say that everybody has the right to wear anything they want but we judge other people by their clothes. We say that everybody has the right to equality while we judge people by their wealth and caste. We just sit around, judging others, not realising the irony of the things that we are doing. Freedom is a state of mind, something that cannot and should not be taken away from a person. Freedom is not the power to do anything we want, it is the power to do anything that is not injurious to others. Freedom does not allow us to judge others. It gives us the right to improve ourselves. And what we are doing is just the opposite.

Positive people attract more positivity in their lives.
Be that person that smiles through it all.
Be happy and cheery in the face of adversity.
Stay positive when the outlook is bleak.
There is a lot of power in that. 💜
