Be grateful...

 In this world, we'll never arrive at a place where everything is perfect and we have no more challenges. You may have many obstacles in your life, but there are some people in this world who would give anything to have your life. That's why it's so important to enjoy the journey not just the destination. Be grateful.    - Joel Osteen

Love the thing you most wish had not happened...

Love the thing you most wish had not happened. It's a gift to exist. With existence comes suffering. There's no escaping that. If you are grateful for your life, which is a positive thing to do, not everyone is, you have to be grateful for All of it. Be grateful for All of it.

Over time, it will train your brain...

 Complaining may seem harmless. But, over time, it will train your brain to seek out the negative side to everything.
Try this: wear a rubber band on your wrist for a week. Every time you complain - snap it.

Underestimating the power of...

 "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."

It's okay to dust it off...

 It's okay to dust it off.
I recently revisited the gym after being away for a long time - basically since the beginning of Covid. When I opened my locker, I was embarrassed to see a layer of dust on my weight belt.  So much dust, I had to get a towel to remove it all.  It felt good to get back in the gym again.  It's okay to dust it off, even if you have to start over.
