Ways to pep yourself up when you hit rough patches...

Friday, April 26, 2013

I've been going through a rough patch this past month, pretty much on all levels: career, finances, housing issues, family, friends/social networking, etc. Feels a bit like a domino effect...

However, I will perservere! Easier said than done but the following sayings are helping me stay positive during this tough period in my life.

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!"

"I cried that I had no shoes until I met the man who had no feet."

"I can only take care of my side of the road."

"By the grace of God, let there be light, love, and warmth."

"It is what it is."

"C'est la vie."

And because I am big sci-fi/fantasy nerd (those familiar with Dune will know this one):

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear."

    A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water - Eleanor Roosevelt.

You are a strong woman ! You will get through this rough period.

I tried reading Dune a long time ago. I just couldn't get into it. I have a couple of friends who've read every single book plus the ones written by his son. I was more into Ray Bradbury or Isaac Asimov. Fahrenheit 451 is a favorite.

    I'm not familiar with Dune, and that quote was my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

You've got this!

    Hang in there, I think a lot of us have been struggling lately! Everything will work itself out. And to add to your sci-fi reference "Don't panic." Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
