Please share any favorite mantras / sayings that help you continue to function & make it through the day.

Some of mine are ......

Everything is ok
Things are not as bad as they seem
God protects me
Things always work out in the long run
And the karma bus will hit them in the ass someday :) I can at least hope

"One little thing."

If I can do one little thing for myself, my family and/or my spouse, no matter how small, I have accomplished much.

Let go. Let God.

Breathe.

I can have a Big Mac tonight if I want.

I still have the sky

don't engage (with crazy)
hope kills action
actions not words
its darkest before the dawn
focus on the INcome not the OUTcome

Positive self talk is helping me thrive not just survive.

"Breathe"

"Everyday I make the choice to..."

"I am important"

My self talk is correlated with my religious faith.

Here is what I tell myself when my feelings start to overpower me (I think it is a universal sentiment that rings true no matter what your religious background may be):

Right now I am suffering....

Suffering leads to perseverance....

Perseverance leads to character......

Character leads to Hope & Faith.

The suffering I'm going through now teaches me to endure, which in turn makes me a better person, which inherently strengthens my faith in God, and that the future he has in store for me will eclipse anything that I am going through now.
