The greatest thing you'll ever learn...


I read this quote as part of some relationship advice in a Facebook article today. What I love about it, though, is that it applies to just about everything. Sometimes, when we're working out, we can focus on how hot the room is and how achey muscles are and how parched the back of our throat feels OR we can feel the burn with satisfaction knowing our bodies are getting stronger. 

I'm so guilty of "being bugged" by lots of things on a regular basis. I let the fact that things aren't "perfect" get in the way of the fact that they are pretty. stinking. awesome. I apologize, friends and neighbors, if you've been left in the wake of one my [many] griping moods. 

I've really struggled emotionally this week and a ton of it has to do with dwelling on topics, issues, and past situations that get us nowhere. I'll be the first to admit that a good, soul-cleansing cry on occasion can be *just* what the doctor ordered. Coming out of those gloomy moments, though, it is so much easier to look around in the light and be thankful. 

Rather than bore you with a list of things I'm thankful for, I'll encourage you to provide others in your life with their own reasons to be thankful. No one ever made the world a better place by sitting humped up on her couch eating Ramen and watching New Girl re-runs [also a totally legitimate way to veg out on occasion, fyi]. 

Change your outlook to change your life to affect change in the lives of others to spur a ripple affect of goodness and change to ultimately lead to... World Peace. You see? There you have it. The weight of the world's peace sits entirely on your shoulders. What are you waiting for?!

Go out there and make the world a better place, people! I'll hold you to it if you promise to return the favor!
