Well, I list some of those not to create sympathy (because this is so minor), but to make a point that situations like this help heighten our awareness of how fortunate we have it. The fact that I still have one good arm (and soon to be 2 again) is a blessing.
Some of these twists and turns should be perceived as challenges and not frustrations. This experience has made me slowdown...take my time...partially because it takes a lot longer to do things, but I believe it will be another stepping stone of attempting to be a better person and to be appreciative each day. I do not think we have one thing to complain about if we wake up healthy with a sound mind. Take my cousin Mike, for instance. He has Stage 4 Liver cancer and is battling for his life. Not once has he complained. That's powerful and humbling. Makes a temporary one-armed challenge so insignificance!
So let's take our heightened awareness of appreciativeness to a new level.
After all, everyday above grass is a good one. Let's live that attitude.

One thing we can definitely control is the way we feel about ourselves. Through mental and physical exercise, we can attain the individual we know and expect to be. We owe it to ourselves to take care of our one body and our one mind that we have. We deserve to feel great!
What's stopping you? NOTHING! Now, make that commitment and let's get busy with our personal plan to achieve this!
Also, feel better about yourself by assisting others as well. Encourage each other (family, friends, kids, parents) to be the best they can and to push themselves to become/stay healthy!
Keep it rolling...one day at a time! Thanks. -JBird
