Paty, La Mariposa
When the day becomes stifling and full of frustrations, I look for inspiration from quotes and affirmations to remind me that everything is going to work out okay. Abundance in every situation is what I try to remember when I feel despair and doubt creeping in. Whenever I see the quote above or another one “At the end of each day, I am aware that I will never live this particular day again. I am grateful to be alive.
Today is also a special day of remembrance as it is 9/11, 14 years after the devastating crisis that occurred in New York and Pennsylvania which changed thousands of lives forever. When I think I’m having a rough day I recall that someone is having a more challenging day and so I remember to take a deep breath, or many so I can bring myself to center.
Whenever there is chaos there is always comes calm in some form. It’s so easy to be caught up in our current crisis and woe is me, which is okay for a moment, yet to stay within the pity me syndrome only pushes us from others causing isolation.
So, the next time you have a trying day or moment, remember to breathe and focus on the present. You can only control yourself and how you react to situations not others and their reactions.
Please share your favorite mantra or quote that helps you get through tough days or moments.
