Poetry On Odyssey: The Beauty Of Positivity

When all else fails, it's best to put on a smile and stay positive


Bumps, bruises, broken body parts, soul, and hearts everywhere.

How do you find the way to smile and laugh even when in doubt?

For life is not always a smooth path,

It’s complicated like equations in math,

But you can always give yourself a nice bath,

Or envelope yourself in hugs,

Or make yourself coffee in a nice mug,

Don’t let life pass you by

For one day you will become ashes and die

So remember to say hi while you’re still alive,

Write letters to everyone while your eyes are still moving

If you fail, make an effort on improving,

But remember, don’t let the negativity be intruding

Laugh and give yourself a pat on the back,

Let your friends take some of that sack

Of Difficulties,

While you’re moving through the motions of this rollercoaster

Called life

Amid the commotion that life gives you,

There is the beauty of Positivity

To remind you of your reason of Existence

May you smile and find the light

Making each day bright

Making each count,

For life is like a wave

That washes away the days and never comes back

And only memories remain

So best be to keep them alive

In our hearts and soul

With the help of positivity..

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
