I don't ever wish a sick or hurting child on anyone. But these things always put life back into proper perspective.
Lifting weights? Something we do. A hobby.
Taking last at your bodybuilding competition or bombing out at a meet really aren't big deals in the grand scheme of life.
Having a bad workout is about as meaningful as missing an episode of something you wanted to watch on TV. You can always make it up later.
One of my favorite quotes is about love and loss. And that is, "Love cannot measure itself until the hour of parting."
You cannot understand your love for something until the loss of it. We may love our hobbies or a TV show but we really learn what's most important to us when the thought of the loss of it overshadows everything else in life.
Perspective can get loss in the mundane routines of life. Try your best not to let it.
