Thankful Thursday! Happy Thursday, friends! Today, I'm thankful for glasses! Both my parents have glasses: my dad has bifocals and my mom trifocals (yep, that's a thing). When I got glasses, I hated them. I was in 6th grade and felt silly. I never was made fun of, but I hated how necessary they were, especially playing sports. I wanted contacts! My mom finally gave in when I was in college (some 11 years later...). However, I started to prefer my glasses over contacts. I liked wearing them and I had grown to appreciate them. Fast forward someoddyears and I still prefer them. They're sassy and stylish and nerdy and fun! I also appreciate them for their basic necessity - I can see clearly with them! How fortunate am I to have something so simple that impacts my daily life so greatly?! Remember everyone, gratitude isn't always about appreciating the big things. Gratitude can come from appreciation of the simplest things in our daily life. This week, my appreciation just happens to give me clear vision (and make driving legal). What have you been thankful for this week? Take time to appreciate what's around you. •
Saya nggak pernah ngarepin orang lain buat membahagiakan saya. Saya biasanya nggak pernah ngarepin apa yg saya sendiri nggak mau kerjakan buat org lain. Dan kalau saya udah ngerjain buat orang saya ga berharap dia melakukan hal yg sama juga buat saya dan sudah saya ikhlaskan. Jadi saya nggak perlu kecewa juga. Kalo kamu byk kecewa mungkin standar kebahagiaanmu ketinggian dan ekspektasinya harus diperiksa.
Saya selalu berusaha mensyukuri hal2 kecil. Akhirnya jadi kebiasaan. Saya mudah sekali bersyukur akan banyak hal dan saya jadi bahagia di banyak waktu. Saya bahagia kalau bisa bangun siang di saat libur trus lama2 main di kasur sama anak2. Saya bisa bahagia saat denger ketawa anak2 yg lagi mandi pas saya nyuci baju di luar. Saya bahkan cukup bahagia kalau denger Noah bilang 'ya maa..' dgn nadanya yg khas itu. Atau ditelfon suami saat dia lg di luar kota, pdhl yg mau diajak ngomong itu anaknya.
Banyak hal yg ternyata bukan hanya soal uang. Tapi tentang rasa syukur kita. Tentang kejujuran. Keaslian. Ketulusan rasa. Hati itu nggak bisa bohong.
Saya nggak mau membebankan kebahagiaan saya kpd org lain. Harus diginiin digituim dulu baru bisa happy. Waduh repot kalau mau bahagia aja syaratnya banyak. Kalau ada sih ya syukur kalau nggak ya gapapa. Ga jadi masalah buat saya. Ga jadi masalah hidup saya nggak keliatan sempurna krn buat saya it doesn't have to be. Kalo liat medsos orang2 aduh kece2 banget isinya sementara saya apa adanya ya gitu itu. Suka males mandi, makannya byk tapi ga bisa gendut isinya udh naga keles bukan cacing lagi. Saya nggak pikirin apa yg orang lain pikir ttg saya. Saya keliatan happy apa enggak. I express my self not to impress others. Karena emang seneng aja sharing. Never expecting some s or s.
But I am always aware that it is always MY CHOICE to be happy or upset over anything in this world may become. So I choose to be GRATEFUL.
Thank You, God, today is a beautiful day.
Reminding ourselves that we are enough and complete already is a battle (we'll at least for me). It's a daily practice to change your mindset. No matter what's going on, there is still so much to be grateful for. Peel back the dark curtain and look for the good, daily, I swear it'll change your life. #staygrateful#DrElke#gotlungs

In light of everything that has been happening over the last three weeks, let me just say this:
If you woke up this morning with a roof over your head and not on top of;
If you woke up and the floor was solidly beneath you without chance of you falling through;
If you woke up and can account for all your friends and family members;
If you have heat, hot water, aircon, water to drink, food in your refrigerator, lights you can turn on and off at your discretion, your house is dry, your family is all safe and your neighborhood, village, town, city and state are still standing and on the map;
Then you best drop to your knees and be grateful you aren't being besieged by wildfires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and mudslides today, for tomorrow isn't guaranteed to anyone no matter your station in life!
#OlyWednesday Rehab Edition! I was finally able to break out my new Romaleo 3s for a test run after they've been collecting dust in the shelf for the past 3 weeks waiting for my shoulder to heal. Going into day 3 in a row of training ad I'm pretty excited to be able to snatch without any major issues. Still rusty and building my confidence back up, but overall happy to be back under a barbell again! Hoping to start adding cleans and jerks back in the mix soon! Followed up my snatch complex by joining the class Metcon for a fun bignastics EMOM and my 5mile leg only Assault Bike. Looking forward to a much deserved rest/recovery day tomorrow!
