Welcome to the rest of 2020. It’s not all bad. Really, it’s not! It’s just that we’ve been living under an overcast sky. But maybe it’s time to focus on what you can change. Divert your mind to the good stuff in life, and there is good stuff.
Relax. Grab a prompt. Create something beautiful, or macabre, but whatever it is… it’s all yours. You can choose to step into the sunlight and leave all the cares behind for a little while.
