On this last day of Pain Awareness Month, I wanted to end with some final thoughts. Pain may not be our choice, but how we deal with the pain in our life and how we respond to our pain is our choice. Attitude matters.
I am not my pain. I choose not to let it define me.
Last semester when my daughter was having a rough time, I started texting her on Monday mornings a little motivational quote or picture, just to start her Monday off on the right foot. So in that vein, here’s a little Monday motivation for the week, for those going back to school, starting a new job or project, or those facing some other challenge.
Life is full of ups and downs; good and bad; happy and sad. But life is really what you make of it. So make the best of it! Follow those dreams! The road to success may not be an easy one, but you can overcome. “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
Never, ever give up on those dreams. I hope you find whatever you are looking for at the end of your rainbow!
We all have moments of self-doubt and fear. Learning to trust our instincts will help us conquer those fears. Just like the children’s story about the little engine that could, think you can, and you will! “Trusting yourself means living out what you already know to be true.”
So put those fears aside and go with your gut instinct. Sometimes we all need a little kick in the pants to recognize what we already know to be true. Believe in yourself and you can be living the life of your dreams.
