I need to choose to have a good day
Awesome! Do you notice some impact?
That’s great! 😀
I often say to myself, “This could be my last day alive, so how can I make it valuable?” It’s much different than what I used to say to myself which was “I’m a hopeless loser and wish I was dead.”
That’s awesome! How did you manage to make that change?
Years of self-care,, stretching my limits, group therapy, asking for support, losing my income, and grieving the loss of many loved ones in a few years. It was a huge, seemingly unstoppable shift in perspective. I joke that the Universe slapped me awake. So, I made a choice to stop living in fear and stop hating myself. It has been a long, painful journey. I feel very grateful to be alive. I have sad days, but those are few and they seem easy when I remember the mindset I was trapped in for seventeen years.
Amazing! Congratulations! You’re a tough human being! 😀
Thanks. 🙂 I’m pretty squishy, but I feel stronger than ever.
Things will only get better
Yes, they will! 😀
I don’t care. That comes out of my mouth too often.
Do you find this helpful?
“LORD HELP ME!”
New day new strength 🙂
Several times a day my thoughts will start to spiral down into negative thinking traps…minor issues quickly become overwhelming problems and things get out of perspective.
As soon as I notice that happen, I tell myself to stop, take a breath and step back from the situation.
Doing this helps you getting back on track?
Sometimes. But lately things have got too overwhelming for it to work for long. Still, a few minutes is better than nothing.
That I am stronger and braver than I realize, and I will get through this day – no matter what!
Awesome! That’s the best attitude!
What is wrong with people!?
Everything is temporary – the good and the bad. 🙂
Ego and procrastination is “wrong” with people, but as you said, everything is temporary. So do ego and procrastination 🙂
I say “dude” to myself. In various intonations dependent upon my mood. A versatile word just like a bunch of swears!
I say ‘dude’ to myself often too!
Undercover swearing. Love it!
It’s the name of the father. The name of the mother is kaos. I always take the Lord’s name in vain. Dudeism 😎😎😎
“What did I come in here for?”
Do you also come up with an answer to this question?
Sometimes. Sometime I must leave said room to remember. Then the process begins again.
Well, we could do nothing without breathing.
It is what it is.
Yep, or how I often like to say -> Shit happens.
Depending on my mood it’s either, “Sweet baby Jesus” or “You’ve got this”
So which saying is for which mood?
You know what? Upon further thought they’re interchangeable. Hmmm…
“People” as I find and pick up cigarette butts on the ground as I walk from my apartment to the bench by the street and back to smoke. If I can throw away my butts, why do they throw theirs on the ground?
Well… technically… they did throw them away..? Lol
‘Jesus, can you please tell me where I put my _________’ because I somehow misplace nearly everything I own on the regular, (must be an anxious personality thing). But by praying about it it lessens the power that these things have to ruin my day. Plus I love how it becomes a miracle when I do find ‘whatever’ again, right where God knew I had left it.
I love this part -> ” Plus I love how it becomes a miracle when I do find ‘whatever’ again, right where God knew I had left it.”
We can miracles everywhere if we look for it.

I literally read this every day. I wrote this over a decade ago teaching one of my sons about daily intentions
That’s an amazing list! I strongly believe we need to read things like this every day as many times as we need it because it can keep us in a awesome mindset. I’m sure this is one of the reasons you live such a great life today! Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you, I’m a true believer that hard work works but we have to put in the work. This list keeps me aware and inspired
Today won’t be so bad. You can make it!
Yes! Because today you’re stronger than yesterday because you’ve already overcame yesterday 🙂
I tell myself to stay sane 😃
What makes you think you might not stay sane?
I get annoyed with all the news circulating in the media and think the world has gone insane so I try to stay sane avoiding those yet reading them😕😃
The world is pretty much f*cked up, but the most of the individuals are not that bad… they just have an inappropriate mindset.
1. Pray first. 2. Just breathe. 3. Take a pause before responding – silence is okay.
Silence can be helpful for understanding and accepting among with asking additional questions if needed 🙂
“Omg, you are sooo adorable and cute and smart and i can’t even bkshskshaosoblargh”
to my cat when he does anything cute, like breathing
What bothers you the most at people?
There’s so many of them. Like ants. The most problematic (today) are the ones that don’t pick up after their dogs 😒 and the ones that litter. There’s a trashcan on every corner but they rather throw plastic bags, cigarettes, empty bottles, cans… On the pretty grass beside the sidewalk. I saw a crow trapped in one. She managed to untangle itself luckily
Yeah… so much ignorance…
It is. And if it’s not, it will be. 🙂
Ugh, here we go again.
Maybe you can change it with Yey, here we go again? 😀
Indeed. I will give it a go.
I’ll be happy today
I hope this has the expected impact.
It’s going to be fine. I can do this. It’s just another day.
Yes, you can! Each day we’re stronger that the day before.
“You can do it, you can!” 😉
Yes, you can. We can! Whatever that “it” is.
This too shall pass!!
This meaning the day or this meaning a shitty situation?
Be it good or bad…whatever happens everything will pass by…
Let me rise above my own self imposed limitations and evolve as a person everyday.
That sounds very powerful! I’m sure this is very helpful you say it to yourself often.
Yes it does.
I always wonder in my head, “Is this all their really is?”.
I used to do that too. My answer is: “No, there’s more!”
“You’re not good enough”.
Where is this coming from?
From my eating disorders 😔
What kind of eating orders do you deal with?
Anorexia, bulimia and binge
Yes, I think I can’t take it anymore sometimes
Dale! You got this!
How do you feel after saying that?
