Mary’s Life Changing Lessons

- Without something to blame, it’s easy to get more frustrated. When that happens, it’s easy to fall into experiences of pity.
- Acceptance is the recipe for how to stop feeling sorry for yourself.It literally is about deciding what you’re going
to focus your attention on.
- The human body is so adaptable! If you are sick for a long time, that becomes your normal. Doing what it takes to maintain health does become the new normal.
- Anger, bitterness, and resentment prevent you from moving on with your life.
