Y’all! Y’all. You’re really inspiring me with this one.
Each week, I host a community collaboration post on Facebook called Question of the Week (QOTW). This week: What’s your personal mantra? And you were not shy:
+ Peace is every step (that’s mine)
+ Arrange whatever pieces come your way. – Virginia Woolf (She was one of us)
+ We would never allow others to talk to us the way we talk to ourselves….
When my negative self talk is beating me up I just think if anyone else called me ugly, useless, pathetic etc. I’d throat punch them. So I can’t let myself do it either (bc throat punching myself would be hard.)
+ Whatever you *can* do is good enough (Abandon perfectionism and unrealistic expectations).
+ Breathe in the good and breathe out all the bullsh*t.
+ I’m. Not. Dead. This is my morning wake-up call. Life might be **** but I’m amazing.
+ Mine and my husband’s motto is onwards and upwards. Together is stronger xx
+ All you can do is all you can do and all you can do is enough (from a book of the same name)
+ I am one. I am whole. I am not my strengths. I am not my weaknesses. I am one. I am whole.
+ You gotta l-i-v-e, live! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room. – Maude, from Harold and Maude
+ A quote from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. It is “Each day has enough trouble of its own.” I frequently have to remind my husband and son, and myself, not to borrow trouble and to focus on the task(s) in front of me. I don’t have the time or energy to waste in worrying about how bad something COULD be. Dealing with one thing at a time keeps me sane.
+ You can do this. One step in front of the other.
+ Inch by Inch life is a cinch… Yard by Yard life is very hard…
+ Push out the jive, bring in the love.
+ It’s just what you do. – I got that from a 90-year-old man who takes care of his heavily disabled son. His son commutes to his janitorial job on the T and one day took the wrong train so every day this man waited at the wrong T stop in case his son made the mistake again. Every day. I told him he was a phenomenal father and he said, “It’s just what you do.”
+ She believed she could so she did
+ Tomorrow is another day.
+ You’ve got this.
+ I can’t. God can. Let’s go!!
+ Find the happy
+ Always forward. And then, at the end of the day, “this is life.”
+ Still I rise. My mantra.
+ Punch fear in the face.
+ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. And: Relax, God’s got this.
+ I am light. I am love. I am worthy of love, a healthy body and a healthy life.
