Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends on you.

SparkPeople's Comments

We all go through challenges in life, but we have the choice to either rise above adversity or to wallow in our misfortune. Complaining might feel good at the time, but positivity will ultimately make you feel much better in the long run.

I think we would be greatly surprised to learn how very much control each of us has over our personal happiness. Our attitude, or lens we see our experiences through, determine how heavy or joyful any event is, whether we were the catalyst or the "victim" of another's choices/actions. WE decide how we choose to process each event in our lives and what we learn from it. We decide to keep the peaches and throw or plant the pits of every event. We have to remember that pits CAN grow into new fruit producing trees IF handled correctly.
