I feel that I am the luckiest bipolar sufferer in the world for several reasons. The most important, besides finally getting a proper diagnosis and finding medications that work for me, is the instantly accessible team of professional support I have. This is something few bipolar sufferers have access to and I am always grateful that I have this.
The other reason I feel I am so lucky is I have been allowed to learn, through unobtrusive means, certain ideas that have helped me in my growth towards mental wellness. The unobtrusive means are very large statements that have been placed on the walls of my work place that I can meditate on at my leisure as I work. I want to share these statements with you so you can meditate, on them as well.
James Allen wrote, “Mediation is the intense dwelling, in thought, on an idea or theme, with the object of thoroughly comprehending it, and what so ever you constantly meditate upon not only will you come to understand, but you will grow more and more into its likeness, for it will become incorporated into your very being, it will become your very self.”
“What you say and the things you choose to do are 100% your responsibility.”
“To live the life, you want action is required.
You can think and dream about what you want for your life,
But unless you actually do something to make change
things will stay the same”
“You can’t change another’s behavior but you can change your response to it.”
“Happy people are constantly evaluating themselves. Unhappy people are constantly evaluating others.”
“Your body is the only place you have to live.”
“Attitudes are contagious, are yours worth catching.”
As I have meditated on these statements over the past few years I have found that I have changed. My hope is that these statements may help you change as well
Our battle is with our minds, not with other people, places, situations or other external things. Remember our battle will always be with our minds and our minds alone.
The great inspirational speaker, Jim Rohn, said:” Work harder on yourself than anything else.”
I say,” Work harder on yourself and everything else falls into place like magic.”
Keep to the path, the hard one. The easy one does not go anywhere.
