You don’t have to be a wreck. You don’t have to be sick. One’s aim in life should be to die in good health. Just like a candle that burns out.
So you’re ill. Maybe a little bit. Maybe alot. Maybe you’re stuck at home recouperating, or struggling on in life but feeling horrendous at every turn, dreaming of a nice dark rock to crawl under and sleep through the worst of it. It’s tough going. Even when we are surrounded by people, and getting lots of help with our helth problems, it can still be a very lonely time. At the end of the day the only person that can get you well is you, and reliance on your own determination and sheer bloody-minded will power sometimes is tiring and lonely.
This is just a note to say, “you’re not alone!” Positivity is key to dealing with health issues, no matter how trivial or huge they are. If you start from a place of optimism and determination, there may well be plenty of pitfalls and failures along the way, but picking yourself up and remaining positive will get you there in the end.
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
So this is my little pep talk to get that motivation flowing. Here goes:
You can do it! There is so much life to live, so much joy to feel, so many wonders to be inspired by. We all have something to give, and people that care for us, so out of respect for the people we love and for ourselves we must strive to be the best we can be. A well and happy person is what you deserve to be. Nothing is insurmountable. There is always a better option. Never say “it’ll do”. Don’t live with regrets, right them. Choose a great life, not just living. Short term pain for long term gain is totally doable. Don’t put it off. There is never a ‘good time’ to make the changes that you need to make. Just do it, suck it up, because the sooner you start to heal the sooner you will be enjoying a new life, the one you want but thought you could never have. Stick some cheesey motivational quotes on your fridge door. Set goals and mark off milestones on a calendar. Know what you want and what you need, and ask others to help.
You are strong, and you are not alone.
