Can you make a list of all the negatives in your life. And see if you can come up with an equal number of positives? A negative can be: just got into a bad accident, car totaled. Positive: but I am ok.

I am just like you OP and then I remembered that blessings aren’t showered on people who aren’t grateful. It took one of my blessings (physical health) being taken away for me to realize I had it. There are people who can’t even work because they’re disabled, so now, even though I’m disabled and in pain a lot of the time, I’m still grateful I can feed myself and earn money to survive. Sounds like you can too.

Thanks all. Helpful. And yes I’ve lost my health at points too and it changed my entire perspective

Gratitude is huge. I'm working on this too and it's soo hard. I've been reading books and listening to podcasts on Buddhist philosophy since at it's core it accepts positive and negative as coexisting entities in all things. Without mud and rain, there is no lotus flower 🙏

Girlfriend (becoming pretty serious, talking about possibility of spending life together) really hates exercise. I haven’t been historically the most exercise-focused, but have gotten more into it lately.
