This is my mantra each and every day:
Even when I’m feeling the blackest and grumpiest and farthest away from anything that looks or sounds positive, a little voice peeps up in the background of my head: don’t give up! don’t lose hope! you can make it! really, you can! I know you can! you’ll make it through this!
Sometimes I feel like it’s only words I’m hearing from that little peep-y voice, but the funny thing is, if I hear the words enough, I start to believe them, if only just a little bit.
And that’s all that matters.
Thanks to my friend, Barbara, for posting this pic on Facebook today. It was exactly what I needed at exactly the moment I needed it.
And thanks to all my friends whose thoughts and prayers I’m in every day. I know it’s your voices I hear in my head that tell me to keep on, to not give up, to hang in there. I appreciate you all ♥
