No matter what,
There is hope.
There is always hope.
You can go anywhere you dream.
You can do anything you want.
You can be anyone you wish.
Right here, right now.
This is your moment,
you’re never going to get it back.
Go. Be. Do.
You are lovely,
even with your scars.
I am giving myself a chance to be great.
I will not let my anxiety and bad self-image convince me that I have failed.
I will not beat myself up.
I am good enough,
come what may.
My days have been gloomy and horrid,
but I will not stay stuck in the darkness.
I will not give up hope,
I will fight for the light.
Things will get better,
in due time.
“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.” - An Irish blessing
I am working on getting unstuck.
I forced myself out of the house,
still trying to get out of my head.
I will keep fighting.
I will not give up.
It gets better than this.
You don’t give yourself enough credit,
you are stronger than you believe.
You were strong enough to survive through
your disordered thoughts and actions.
You are strong enough to survive through
the recovery from them.
Don’t you ever give up, not ever.
Happiness in recovery does not happen over night. You don’t just wake up one morning and decide that you are okay with what is happening. Things don’t work that way.
It is a process.
It takes work,
and it takes time.
But it is possible,
you will get there.
The goal is not to wake up in the morning a winner.
You cannot cross the finish line without first running the race.
The goal is to wake up in the morning, put your feet on the floor and move forward.
With each step, you are on the way to becoming a winner.
The goal is to wake up in the morning and start to win.
