Take The High Road.

Between all the legendary musicians dying this year, the outrageous number of unarmed black men being killed by police officers and this shitstorm of an election, the world seems like a pretty terrible place these days. There’s plenty wrong in the world, don’t get us wrong, but there’s plenty of evidence that the world is currently a better place than it has ever been.

It’s way easier to fixate on the negative, though, especially when we’ve got our social media feed to incessantly bitch to. But let’s put our gripes away for a second and stop sulking around the house dwelling on the negative. Unplug, accentuate the positive and get out there and spread the good vibes this week.
