Hello everyone, and welcome back to Join The ME Project. Here we are again at the beginning of a new month. I thought it would be great to look back and do a review of the quotes posted to the JTMP Instagram for the month of March.
Quotes from the Month of March
Quote: ”Reset. Refocus. Readjust. Restart. As many times as you need to.”- Unknown
Comment:Take a moment and think about what this quote means for you. It’s quite common in today’s society to set limits. You only get so many chances or at a certain age, you should have accomplished a certain amount of things. But are these things realistic? Don’t be afraid to break apart from the mold and do what’s best for you and yours.
Quote: ”Take the mistakes from the past and turn them into lessons for the present.”
Comment: This quote is from my most recent post, Breaking Down January & February Stats. The question of the day: have you learned a lesson from a recent mistake?
Quote: ”Instant success doesn’t happen, and if it does, then it isn’t worth it.”
Comment: We live in a 🌎 where instant gratification is common and expected. But how often do the results of such things play out well? Wouldn’t it be better if we worked for what we want? The time and effort would guarantee nothing is taken for granted.
Quote: ”Admitting that you have a set limit is not a weakness. It just means that you are aware of what your body needs.”
Comment: Do you know your limits? To me, limits, are what we will allow ourselves to handle. Anything above a set limit is too much. After reaching your limit, it is good to take a break from the situation or the event. Read the rest of the article, Knowing Your Limits
Quote: ”The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”-Unknown
Comment: Would you say this quote is true? Are you aware of your surroundings and the simple things in life?
Quote: ”Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.” -Les Misérables
Comment: Sometimes we go through situations that feel like they are never going to end. It may be physical, mental, or emotional. It’s okay to admit to those bad days. Because those bad days will end.
Quote: “Strength is what we gain from the madness we survive.” -Unknown
Comment: Madness becomes strength. Or you could say that strength can be found in madness.⠀
• Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde⠀
• The Mad Hatter⠀
• The Incredible Hulk⠀
Can you think of any?
Quote: ”One step at a time or one breath at a time.”
Comment: Pain, no matter the form can become all-encompassing. My grandmother used to say that pain distorts the character. It’s important to pause and take whatever time you need to heal and regroup. Develop a self-care routine. Living with a chronic illness is difficult but it’s not impossible. We are strong because we endure.
Quote: Meraki [may•rah•kee] (v.) – to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put yourself in your work.
Comment: Keeping this Greek word in mind, have you ever felt this way about anything? And if so, are you still doing it? One of the best ways to remain healthy is to replace our negative habits with good. In most cases, we think we need to drop what makes us happy because it takes up too much of our time. And when we do, we find we’ve dropped what kept us active. Avoid all of this by remembering meraki. Don’t take that feeling for granted.
