The Bright Side blog is a place to find love, beauty, and joy in everyday life. Real life, of course, is not always beautiful, or even pleasant. But it’s easier to move forward if you can focus on what is funny, or cheerful, or silly, or unexpectedly enjoyable in your life–if you can find a way to feel grateful for what you have and have not been given. The Bright Side is not a place where we ignore our problems. It’s where we go to find a place of peace from which to deal with them.
