“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” -Og Mandino
There are days like today that I feel utterly hopeless and pathetic. I get in this funk of psyching myself out about how I’ll never be able to do all the things I want to accomplish because of my chronic illness. And then, I get angry with myself because I realize that there are millions of people in this world suffering the unspeakable, and here I am laying in bed because I don’t feel well. All of those who suffer, or at least the ones I have witnessed, didn’t realize they were suffering, and if they did, they did not complain. They were/are strong.
Today my negative attitude got the best of me, and in that sense I failed. Granted I don’t feel well, and it will be an uphill battle for me, but I will not let the negative overtake me. If my determination, faith, positivity, and patience is strong enough I will succeed.
