    Just for today, I will..? #9billion21flow #vision2020 #justfortoday ?

    With all the noise, uncertainty, pain and dis-ease, we can get caught up in many tomorrows and miss out on opportunities to behold and take possession of our today. Doing so requires that we pause, breathe, and ask God to respond from the universal possibilities of what's next. Take time out and post here your commitment to self, just for today. I promise you it will make for many tomorrows! Hugs and lotsa love. #ministerdrrose

    Just For Today - I won’t give up.

    ••••I learned this through supporting my friend in NA. This helps me with my chronic illness every time I want to give up.•••••

    “JUST FOR TODAY
    I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.

    I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will do something positive to improve my health. If I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If I'm overweight, I will eat healthfully -- if only for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.

    JUST FOR TODAY, I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions.”

    - Abigail Van Buren

    Just For Today

    I’m trying to use my wise mind and recognize that yesterday is gone. There is nothing I can do to change the day however, I tend to beat myself up when I’m not able to leave my house due to the anxiety I struggle with. I know I can’t go back and change how much food I DIDN’T consume. I can’t keep punishing myself for the routine I carefully wrote down on a piece of paper that I never even looked at that sat on my table right beside me all day.

    I can only say goodbye to the day and the skipped routine and meals. I can only try again tomorrow. I’m proud to say that I’ve been out 2 days in a row and I’ve eaten both days. I’m trying, just for today 💃🏼.

    Just for today, I will celebrate the small victories, like brushing my teeth and leaving my house.

    Just for today, I will do my best to eat enough to nourish my body.

    Just for today I will practice kindness to others and myself. Actually self first!

    Just for today, I will be grateful for a day that I did not sit and stare at a black tv screen for hours in isolation in my house that’s slowly becoming my prison.

    Just for today ❤️

    Finding My Way (first post intro!)

    At 21 years old, a few weeks after my birthday, I stepped on the scales and the needle bounced to 320lbs. I was depressed, scared, and my doctor told me that I would never make it to my 30th birthday. A month later I started my weightloss journey and found an incredible passion for hiking. I started small with short trails, but eventually worked up to weekend long trails. During a visit with my sister I set out on a 6 mile day hike on a beautiful trail not far from her house. With a small backpack and a few supplies I left out around noon. The trail markers were posted on trees and as long as you follow them you should make it through the trail in just a few hours, but somewhere along the way I took a wrong turn. This six mile hike turned into a 21 mile nightmare. About halfway through I had taken my last sip of water, only had a granola bar for food, and no flashlight or overnight camping equipment. My uneasiness had grown into worry, and that worry then turned into fear. I began to walk faster and prayed that I would see someone else on the trail. At one point my heavy breathing turned into yells in hopes that someone else would hear me, and that moved into tears. I was terrified, but tried my best not to let it get the best of me. This was a state park and I knew if I couldn’t find the trail again I could be lost for days. About an hour after sundown I had nearly given up until I saw one of the white trail markers on a tree, and up ahead was a tent. Those people shared their supplies with me and allowed me to use an extra blanket. The next morning they walked with me the rest of the trail, and I was extremely relieved that I was no longer lost and alone. It wasn’t until later that year that I experienced that same feeling of being lost and alone in my addiction and mental illness. I was on a path with no destination, but I didn’t even realize how lost I had become. And the worst part was that I passed many people who were willing to help, but I wouldn’t stop to listen. I was determined to get out on my own. My struggle with mental illness has gone on for years, but it wasn’t until I tried to cope with my mental health alone that I dove headfirst into drug addiction. The slippery slope of mental torture quickly turned into a fast spiral downward with nowhere to turn. After receiving help going through a medical detox I then turned to professionals to help with my mental illness. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, severe depression, PTSD, & OCD. I’m new here but I hope to use my voice to encourage others to keep fighting. I’ve dealt with suicidal ideation, physical assault, & a slew of other things. I look forward to following the journeys of the people in this community, and I’m excited to get to know you. Keep your head up and keep pushing. The storm doesn’t last forever, and the sun will shine again! #Depression #Bipolar #PTSD #OCD #Addiction #drugaddiction #Recovery #justfortoday
