Getting Back On The Horse

Many years ago, I was hit with a horrible bout of depression. During some of the sessions with my therapist, he talked about affirmations.  I keep some on my desk at work, I have several pages of them bookmarked on my laptop, and my husband will occasionally write one on the bathroom mirror.  Reading them, seeing them, is very helpful to me.

Well, last week was an absolute disaster at work, and some of that negativity carried over to my home life.  I’m still working on recovering.  In trying to get my head right for the upcoming week, I pulled together some of the quotes and affirmations I have stockpiled.  I’ve used them in my quiet time today; reading through them again and really HEARING the words.

Life is hard.  Work, home, relationships aren’t always made up of sunshine and rainbows. So, I’d like to share some of these affirmations and quotes with you.   If and when something goes wrong in your world, you might come here and find a quote  that is uplifting to you .  

 

Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.”

– Richard Branson

“Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

– Winston Churchill

“Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.”

– George Bernard Shaw

“Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.”

– Malcolm S. Forbes

“After every difficulty, ask yourself two questions: “What did I do right?” and “What would I do differently?”

– Brian Tracy

“Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.”

– Leo Buscaglia

 

I hope your week is successful!

Success is not a goal, but a journey (and there will be bumps along the way). Don't remember the source, but it has always helped me.

These quotes are wonderful, molly, and can inspire any time. I think I might write them out - my printer is on strike - and stick them on my fridge.

thanks Reader!

if you have a dry erase marker, you can put them on the bathroom mirror, they wipe right off!

also, writing something out makes it easier to remember, there's a connection formed in your brain

I forgot to include this. Danny made me recite this, it's so true.

The only time you fail is when you fall down and stay down. Stephen Richards

It is so very true. Sometimes when we're down, we need a hand to get back up. Never be afraid to ask for help. None of us should be.
