“If you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine”

"If/When you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. “Sunshine” means “happiness”—if you can’t find happiness for yourself, then make happiness for others (or make yourself happy).

Sutherlin on March 25, 2011. “If you can’t find the sunshine in your day, then BE the sunshine in your day!” was posted on Twitter by “Debby’s 5 dollar jewelry” on October 7, 2012.
