      1. Years of self-care,, stretching my limits, group therapy, asking for support, losing my income, and grieving the loss of many loved ones in a few years. It was a huge, seemingly unstoppable shift in perspective. I joke that the Universe slapped me awake. So, I made a choice to stop living in fear and stop hating myself. It has been a long, painful journey. I feel very grateful to be alive. I have sad days, but those are few and they seem easy when I remember the mindset I was trapped in for seventeen years.

  1. Stop.

    Several times a day my thoughts will start to spiral down into negative thinking traps…minor issues quickly become overwhelming problems and things get out of perspective.

    As soon as I notice that happen, I tell myself to stop, take a breath and step back from the situation.

  2. “People” as I find and pick up cigarette butts on the ground as I walk from my apartment to the bench by the street and back to smoke. If I can throw away my butts, why do they throw theirs on the ground?

  3. ‘Jesus, can you please tell me where I put my _________’ because I somehow misplace nearly everything I own on the regular, (must be an anxious personality thing). But by praying about it it lessens the power that these things have to ruin my day. Plus I love how it becomes a miracle when I do find ‘whatever’ again, right where God knew I had left it.

    1. I love this part -> ” Plus I love how it becomes a miracle when I do find ‘whatever’ again, right where God knew I had left it.”
      We can miracles everywhere if we look for it.

    1. That’s an amazing list! I strongly believe we need to read things like this every day as many times as we need it because it can keep us in a awesome mindset. I’m sure this is one of the reasons you live such a great life today! Thank you so much for sharing!

      1. There’s so many of them. Like ants. The most problematic (today) are the ones that don’t pick up after their dogs 😒 and the ones that litter. There’s a trashcan on every corner but they rather throw plastic bags, cigarettes, empty bottles, cans… On the pretty grass beside the sidewalk. I saw a crow trapped in one. She managed to untangle itself luckily
