With a title like that, how could you NOT read this post?
Think about this: what is the ONE room that you simply cannot avoid during the day?
A counselor I went to years ago suggested that I grab some post-it notes or index cards and write down quotes that I find inspirational then put them up in my bathroom. This way, every day, it is guaranteed that I will see this encouragement several times between sunrise and sunset.
Two years ago, I finally acknowledged that my health was steadily going downhill and without severe changes, my adulthood would be a life full of unfulfilled goals with a large amount of dependence on my family. I resolved at that time that my health came above other pursuits, such as dating, college and most of a social life.
Two years ago I decided that my health needed addressing and that I would have to be “in it to win it” to get through however long it took for my body to heal. I bought a simply magnet frame and stuck it to my bathroom mirror, and everyday for two years I have looked at this particular saying
“I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET BETTER.”
- Other post-it notes are stuck along the walls and to the mirror. Here is an example: “Do not dwell on the past. Do not dream of the future. Concentrate your mind on the present moment.” This quote comes from a favorite figure, Buddha, while other quotes are simple reminders to keep going, maintain my self-worth.
