i am enough.

i am good enough.

i am more than good enough.

i am capable.

i am worthy of love.

i am only responsible for my own happiness, no one else's.

i'm going through some heavy emotional ...stuff.
as a result i've been thinking a lot about mantras.
what are your favorites?
what positive things do you tell yourself to lift your spirits?
what keeps you seeing through rose colored glasses when you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders?

multiple times a day i make sure to tell sookie she is smart, brave, strong, funny, important, loved, special.

i think i need to work harder at reminding myself of these things as well.

here's to a weekend where we are kind to ourselves.


  1. I think that is great what you tell yourself, but not only do you have to tell yourself that when your down, you have to believe it. =D

    I tell myself I can do this, I can make it through this because God is on my side.

  2. Some of mine...

    "This too shall pass."

    "One step at a time." (Literally in my case.)

    Jeremiah 29:11, which is my life verse.

    I'm sure there are a lot more but my poor brain is drawing a blank at the moment. But many hugs to you. Believe me, I get where you're at. I think everyone who deals with chronic illness gets it.

    Hang in there....

  3. I just wanted to leave a {hug} and tell you that you are a miracle.

  4. Stopping by from the blog hop (although late) and following you thru GFC. I would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a great week!


  5. Love you & thinking of you during a difficult time. (And EXCITED to see you!!!)
