Saturday’s Motivational Quote – September 11, 2015

c0f6878ace18a21b9840d739ee07a28dI may have moments when I falter. Days even. I allow myself those. Sometimes I have to have that hard cry. Or Vent.
But I always come back fighting harder.
I have overcome everything put in front of me….Or am doing my best to overcome it.
I won’t let depression drag me down. I will beat it over and over again. Just like I did today.
I can’t beat lupus or fibro but I can keep them for BEATING me down completely.
I win.
I have to. It is not in be to give up.
That is my Motivation.
I will not give in.

    I love this quote. Thanks for posting. I believe life is given to us to fight odds, must be in preparation for a life after life. I’m looking forward to what’s next…when time comes.

    1. I have no fears of death. I never have had. I will fight to live but when the time comes, I am ready. I have already lived longer than any doctor ever thought I would. LOL
      Enjoy the rest of your week.

    Having trouble with pain and depression myself today. Thanks for the encouragement.

    1. Peggy, I hate to hear that. I do understand. I post them as much for myself as I do for all of you. It is a constant struggle with both.
      24/7. I wish I could help . I am here if you ever need a place to vent. or sarahkasch Hotmail is the one I use for the Blog so it is filled with emails. Juno isn’t. . HUGS SARAH

    Yes, yes, yes!!! Whatever happens in our lives doesn’t mean we have to give in. We should look at it and decide whether we want to go with it or not. And if not, than we can change our attitude and direction we want to go. Great, Sarah!

    1. Erika, Thank you.
      I need to get Sunday’s out before I forget. LOL I posted as my wallpaper to remind me.
      I’ve gotten behind on my comments. I am really behind on my reading of yours and everyone else’s blogs. Danny is due home shortly so I need to get off and get presentable. LOL
      Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Sarah

        Hey, never worry about being update with reading posts. It is simply impossibel. I had no chance today. But will be back on track tomorrow. Have a great weekend, Sarah 🙂

        1. Erika,
          It’s one of those things I KNOW But It still bothers me. I signed up for way too many emails. Now I am having trouble changing them. It just takes too long. LOL
          All is good. I just apologize a lot. Some things are harder than others to STOP.
          We just had a Terrible storm here again. Power was of for 2 hours. We are lucky it is back on.
          I panic with NO AC and I am too spoiled with the internet.
          I need to find some cheap books somewhere.
          We got 2.2 inches of rain again just now.
          Road is flooded at the park again.
          We are higher here. JUST MUDDY.
          All is good. The weekend has been good.
          I moved some this morning. Couldn’t do much even if I could have . WET. I just wanted my view to look nice. Danny laughed when he saw it. Then mowed a little more for me.
          I hated that because he was so tired. Made me feel good though. Love Sarah

            I stppped the email notification. Up to 300. I only go over the reader. I cannot do it all anymore. But I do as much as possible.
            Hope the weather gets better, Sarah!!! Big hugs to you 🙂 <3

            1. If I stop all the emails will it un- follow any of the blogs?

              1. Erika Kind says:

                That has nothing to do with it. It is only a way of being notified about new posts of blogs you follow.

                1. Good then Guess what I will be doing?
                  I want my EMAIL account back to where I see what I want to see.
                  Thank you.

                  1. Erika Kind says:

                    Yes!!! You are so very right, Sarah!!! I did the same because I got afraid to miss the “real” emails! Going over the reade is much faster as well! 😉

  5. I like your positive attitude. You DO win!

    1. So do you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hi Sarah, I couldn’t imagine a more heartfelt quote. Your positivity and determination is so strong. I understand this, not through illness, but through a lack of confidence, that is also debilitating, if you let it be. I wish you much love and happiness. kathie.x

    1. Oh Kathie, I am less confident that I ever have been. Not debilitating yet, but it was getting there. Because of it and depression I was staying /am staying at home and not venturing out. Not even to the park. The park was always a place I felt comfortable at. Even venturing out here on our section of it is hard. Certain comments from others…..lack of self esteem whatever you want to call it has hurt me terribly.
      I has been harder to fight everything lately. That’s why you and others here have made a huge difference in my outlook.
      I am opening life…my fears and illnesses to everyone. That was hard for me to do.
      I should have done it years ago.
      It is a constant battle.
      This last cancer scare and now the chemo (again) has really brought me to my knees again. Or it is trying to.
      I got mad this morning and went and mowed the section I see from my chair here.
      It was too wet to. I shouldn’t have done it either. It did not help me feel better physically but It sure made me feel good MENTALLY.
      What was good though was the look on Danny’s face when he saw the yard mowed….only part of the yard. He came in and went right back out, got in the lawn mower and mowed a bunch more for me. Wet grass and all.
      I am rambling. Sorry about that.
      Thank you for this. HUGS MY Friend.
      Love Sarah

      1. Hi Sarah, People do make judgements on what they see, sometimes it is hurtful, sometimes, not. It is coming from their perception, and without understanding of why they are seeing you do what you do. I hope comments have been misplaced, not intentionally hurtful. You are clearly so brave, and it lifts a weight to be able to talk, however much, about things, it makes you feel less alone. I know I haven’t been through anything like you, but there are some similarities in our perspective. You go one day at a time, helping yourself to feel mentally & emotionally better and strong, even if only for a few minutes each day, the rest will follow. Love and hugs, kathie

        1. Kathie, There are a lot of similarities in our perspectives.
          How we look at things. The way we feel about animals. How we treat them. Take care of them.
          Thank you for these encouraging words. Love and hugs being sent your way. Sarah
