“Faith gives you an inner strength and a sense of balance and perspective in life.”
– Gregory Peck
Today was another good day for me, yes I still have my pain but even it being there I still had a good day. Know that you are as good as your mind tells you; you are. You must strengthen yourself mentally and there is when you will begin to feel much better physically; they go hand and hand. “To build inner strength you must build both physical endurance and mental muscle.”
Having mental strength can be difficult for some to achieve, especially when you may be deep in depression but you must try. It’s way worth trying than not trying and being unhappy in your days. You have to be able to notice the differences in how you think, respond, react to things and people. One little small thing as deciding to just say ok to someone instead of becoming upset, or notice the things that truly make you happy, and see how your mental state is at those happy moments.
This may have to be a life long task but you will be proud of yourself every day, when you’re able to be strong and not let anything get you down. FIND YOUR STRENGTH THAT IS ALREADY INSIDE OF YOU.
“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” – Dr. Wayne W Dyer
I know that it can seem like God has forgotten us or is putting us through is and we don’t know why. It can be very hard to see your blessings and to see any gift within yourself anymore, but know God still loves us and for me it helped slow me down, it helped me focus and open my eyes to what I was doing to myself. So I take this pain and I wear it as a badge of honor, I don’t allow it to make me less than anyone else. I still have my gifts and talents The Lord has given me and I will not allow this pain to hold me back anymore.
