    I was there. Where you are. Read my really old posts. Read the link “MY Story”. I’ve been there. But (you wont like this) it’s YOUR choice. You are making the choice to feel sorry for yourself and your situation rather then trust that there is something better for you out there and work at making that happen. When my husband left me, I didn’t have $1 to my name. Not $1. Period. I had NO job, hadn’t worked in 2 years, twins that were barley one with a monthly diaper and formula need of $600 per-month, and a 5 year-old. I’d just lost our home less than a year before, just filed BK because of extensive medical bills. I had NOTHING. Nothing. A friend had to bring me gas money, diapers and formula that first week just so my babies wouldn’t starve. I’m saying all this because I’ve been there. Where you are. But on the 3rd day, when I’d been laying on the floor, no-food or water, unable to function, the light went on. I realized I HAD A CHOOSE. I could Sink (and die) or I could CHOSE to swim (and live). I looked at my babies and I got off the floor. I have hustled my ass of every day since. It took me 3 months to find a job, so to feed my kids I sold every single thing I could get $10 for including my wedding rings. But I consciously made that choice that I wasn’t going to sit around and feel sorry for myself anymore. I was going to take control of my life. I was going to be accountable for what happened to me and not blame anyone. It’s been a long struggle. But when I got/get down I have mantra’s ready, I BELIEVE that everything happens for a reason, I trust I’m gonna survive. And I do. And so will you. But it’s your choice. It’s in YOUR hands. You can do it, but you have to want to more than you want to let it swallow you whole.
    You can do this! Trust me YOU CAN DO THIS.

    And remember your words are the MOST powerful thing you have….so saying you Cant cant, is telling your brain that you cant, so you don’t and you wont.

    No matter what the demons are that try to bring you down, and pull you back in, just change the subject on your brain. Seriously, like when your talking to someone thinking they are listening to you, and then they interrupt you mid-sentence, with a totally different topic or convo. And your like “what the hell”?? Do that to your brain! Your brain will have the same reaction. Then eventually it just gets tired of the game and gives up.

    So your challenge is to JUST DO THAT. You don’t need to do ANYTHING ELSE for the next 30 days. ALL you need to do, is change the subject on your brain EVERY SINGLE TIME you have a negative or stressed out thought. Have a mantra ready like “it’s going to be fine, I’m so grateful for the blessings in my life, health and family” or whatever. The point is be happy for what you do have and keep feeding that to your head.

    Then in 30 days let me know how you feel. But you gotta be committed…ok ?? You got this! I KNOW you do 🙂

    Remember what you’re thinking about is what you get more of. Let that sink in.

    I totally agreed with you Sarah,its ultimately “your choice” to change. I made the decision to be happy, to change the way I look to feel better about myself and to choose positive thinking vs negative thinking! Luckily, I had a very supportive team of people feeding me encouragement. But, I had to do the hard work… Nothing is easy….but, its wonderful to reap the fruits of your hardwork!

    I still have my moments of “CAN’Ts or Negative Thoughts” but, I make conscious efforts to deviate or kill those moments when they surface. NOT EASY….But, I don’t want my hard work to go to waste because of one “tiny can’t or negative thought.”

    What if you have someone around you that likes to swear? I try to block it out, but it is hard. I use to swear a lot, but it didn’t pay so I stopped and I have been trying to tell my boyfriend that, but he doesn’t care.

  9. Sarah says:

    yeah that is hard…. I guess you can just ask the people around you to be respectful and try to honor your wishes…

    THANKS again so, so very much

  12. thanks for the beautiful comments guys!

  13. Actually, it’s true that your perception is the only thing influencing the way you see your life and yourself. No need to feel pity for yourself (though it’s obviously your own choice or decision. Your world is beautiful when you see it’s beautiful. You are joyful if you see yourself smiling. Everything is this simple. Thank you, Sarah, for the post!
