Second day back from the four-day Senior Assisted Living and Nursing Home visit. Wrapping up the afterglow, inspiration and insight with today’s five posts.
The reward for being a midlife warrior isn’t readily apparent. Bottomline reality is this:
Life is hard.
In nature, it’s called the food chain. Everyday, living things must accept their place in the chain and fight for their survival. Nature never takes a day off.
We can take solace in knowing our weariness from the daily grind is a gift. Or we can carry an unbearable burden if we see this as a curse.
Be fit. It’s the only way to thrive.
This website is about our mental attitude. To leave this site to read today’s post on my physical health website, click here.
The inevitable repetition of the daily obligations, expectations, and challenges is enough to have us throw up our arms in surrender and quit – to quit trying to live a remarkably vibrant life.
It takes a special indomitable will and positive outlook to go against the inevitable.
The opportunity is available to everyone.
Almost daily (and often all day) i must remind myself of this.
All that overcoming the obstacles yesterday does is give me the opportunity to start all over again today.
You know what happens to our attitude when we patiently wait for something we hope for?
Not that we need breaks because the journey in and of itself is all we really need.
But to have icing on the cake after years and years of patient persistence?
Like a mini mid life celebration.
Our ability to remain positive is proportional to our desire to not surrender to the often unrelenting pressures of life’s unexpected situations.
