One of the more substantial challenges of life: avoid breaking

Things can break around you, but you cannot. Situations , circumstances change, but you cannot.

The things can be fixed, the circumstances can be mended, but you cannot be. Or if you can be, you cannot do this yourself. So, just don’t break.

If I was given the task of marketing the human character and spirit, the quality that I would advertise most would be that “it can be strained, but not broken”.

Some motivational crap:
I like poker, so this one made some sense.

We cannot change the cards we are dealt with, just how we play the hand.
