I think having an attitude of gratitude is extremely important when keeping a positive mindset. I especially loved you advice about having some abstinence from the things you love. I didn’t realize how much that correlates with me. It is kind of like the idea, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder.” You don’t realize how good a relationship was or a place was until it is no longer in you life. I also liked the idea or creating more variety in your life. This way you do not feel like your stuck in a routine and are constantly creating new experiences and memories.
