You Are, Who You Think You Are

We Are Who We Think We Are

"How we think about ourselves has an impact on what we do. If we decide that we are less of a person because we have an illness, then we may not fulfill our potential. If we decide our illness will consume our every thought and action for the rest of our lives, then it probably will. If we decide that we will always be a victim and our life will bring us nothing but misfortune, then our life may just turn out that way.

"On the other hand, if we begin to believe positive things about ourselves, eventually our outlook on life will become positive as well. When we believe that we are lovable, that we can cope with our illness, and that we are no less of a person because of it, then this is what shall be. We can change who we are by changing who we believe ourselves to be.

"Today, do I remind myself of my abilities, my choices, and my opportunities?"

Thought for the Day

"My attitude and perspective can make life more positive and joyful."

... and I change my mind all the time.
