    Motivational Monday: You Made It To Today So Keep Going

    “The thing is…
    is that you’re still alive,
    your heart is still beating,
    your eyes are still blinking,
    your brain is still thinking,
    you thought you couldn’t survive yesterday,
    but you made it to today.
    So keep going.”- S.B

    You can definitely make it through today if you survived yesterday. One step at a time, one moment at a time. Keep going 💙

    Just a Sunday morning thought

    Regardless of what we struggle with, we all have talents and abilities that offset our illnesses. For instance, I experience mental illness, migraines and arthritis yet I also excel at education and writing. Find out what you excel at and embrace it. Don't let your illness rob you of that. #Health #MentalHealth #EmotionalHealth #ChronicIllness #illness
