On The Previous Quote

“From the brain and the brain alone arise our pleasures, joys, laughter and jests, as well as our sorrows, pains and griefs”

– Hippocrates

This quote speaks a lot about life in general.  It reminds me of an acronym my grandpa used to stress growing up for any problem I’d run into.  “PMA.”  Those short three words effectively changed my life more than any other thing I could learn in school.  A Positive Mental Attitude is everything in life.  I would describe life as a series of random occurrences and experiences that are causally determined by your previous actions and actions outside of your jurisdiction.  Throughout these life experiences and events, there is only one thing that you have sole control and possession of – your state of mind.  Your emotional ties to a given situation are directly tied with your ability to interpret the significance and life-lessons of a given situation.  Maintaining a positive mental attitude is critical for being able to fully enjoy life for all that it has to offer
