You are the artist of your reality. When the situation is challenging from the outside it depends on you yourself what colors you are using to paint your own reality. If you paint it with bright, shiny, joyful colors this is the picture you will get. If you pick dark, dull colors that is the picture you will get as well.
Don't forget that you have your whole palette. Don't forget you have bright colors no matter what is outside of your world. The world may influence you to do the dark stuff. You can always pick up the bright colors, the golden colors the yellows, oranges, and reds so that your life, your picture is painted the way you want it. At any moment, the information from outside could be coming to you with a lot of negativity, fear, or destruction. But you still have the whole pallet of colors.
You are the master of your own picture.
Hugs and love to all of you,
