“Pain is temporary. It may last minutes, an hour, a day, or even a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.”
I got this quote from a Lance Armstrong book.
(Yes, I know he’s a cheater and lied to the world about taking performance drugs… He’s probably not in a good position to be offering life advice. But he certainly does know a thing or two about enduring pain.
And this quote has helped me a lot… Pain is temporary.
I feel pain when I work out. But it only last 45 minutes. I can do anything for 45 minutes.
I feel pain when I have a long and rough workday. But it only lasts 1 day. I can get through 1 day of anything.
Now, the world is going through a very painful time. We are all feeling it. People unemployed, dying, negative news around us, being “stuck” at home, etc…
I don’t know how long it will last, but we WILL get through it. It may be months or years, but eventually the pain will subside. Pain is temporary! In the meantime, we just need to stay in the game and keep trying our hardest.
Hang in there! And let me know if you need to chat about anything or share your pain. I’ve got extra strength today – happy to share some around!
PS.. don’t take drugs like Lance.
