Really Bad Day

Having a really bad day/week/weekend/whatever?
I have no words of wisdom at the moment. I only have a mantra that I am reciting over and over in my head to help me get out of this "really bad day" aka bad attitude.
That is:

Be grateful for what you have!

Keep on keepin' on!

When the going gets tough the tough gets going!

Cherish your family!

I'm going to be repeating these phrases the rest of the day to whip myself back into shape

If anyone else has a motivating mantra..drop a line! I'm sure some of us (Me! Me! ME!!!) could really use it.
***Like the photo I picked! I figured if I picked a pretty lady pulling her hair out it wouldn't look so bad. It kinda makes me laugh.***


  1. This is not that great, but I find myself thinking "I'm not in a concentration camp." Sorry--kind of tasteless, but I DO tell myself that and it helps me put things in perspective.

  2. -Just remember the Scriptures say
    "It came to pass"
    "It came to stay"!

    I can't live without that one!!

  3. I love all of these and Weston's really rocks.

  4. Not sure if it is helpful and it can be classified as negative self talk because it's in tune with escapist behavior. ( can you tell I've had way too much therapy) But during bad times, days, weeks, months...I find myself saying " I just need a vacation." Oddly it's somehow comforting.

  5. Oh, oh! I remember now! I knew I had some. Here are my motivating mantras:

    "Never give up, never surrender"
    -from "Galaxy Quest"

    and my own personal theme in life:

    "Every disaster is a triumph waiting to happen."
