Positive Reminders

Nov 27, 2017 11:01 AM

I find myself repeating “I am strong, I am calm, I can do this” throughout my day, especially when the pain becomes unbearable.

The more I listen and read, the more I realize how important a positive mindset is. What uplifting message do you tell yourself when you feel like you’re at the end of your rope? -Big hug

Have you ever seen the movie "Hacksaw Ridge" it's based on a true story. A young man wants to help people durring the war. So he wants to be a medic. (side note he will not carry a gun or fire one) anyways the platform climes this tall ridge that has a huge rope nets.

At the end of the day the platoon is mostly wiped out and retreat back down the ridge. The young man stays and helps the wounded lowering them down one By one to safety. He does this all night long. (now please forgive the religious aspecked) through exhaustion after each one is lowered to the bottom. He crawls back to the battle grounds that the enemy is still there. Each time saying "one more please God. Please help me help one more"

Sorry so long. But for me. Its "one more day God" and sometimes "one more hour please God. Help me through one more hour"

Hi, I like to stay positive all the time too. I just tell myself that this is not the end, there are others much worse off than me. I never question why me, I always say why not me. Rather me than anyone else. I'm strong and I've got this. It's not always been that simple, I had to hit rock bottom and loose everything I knew to be my life, my job, my house & fiance of 10 years, but you know what I dealt with it and climbed out of the rabbit whole and now as frustrated as I may get occasionally I'm mostly positive and nothing really phases me. I just get on with claiming my life back. Stay positive x

I have been going through a rough time and i have not been good about staying positive. I usually remind myself i am not my condition. I may be sick, but that is not who i am.
