Mantra: Never ever give up

I started the practice of yoga this week and am realizing how much I need this right now in my life to balance my body, heart and soul. Today I’m dedicating my mantra to someone I love very much. My mantra is to never ever give up.

When life kicks and breaks us down, fight back and stay strong. The mind is a powerful thing. It is up to you to decide each and every day whether or not it will make or break you. Stay strong.

  1. This is powerful stuff. I decided twenty five years ago, before they had any medications to help Multiple Sclerosis, never to give up when I was diagnosed. I adore this post and will share it wherever possible!

    • Thank you. I am trying my best. We decide each and every day how we are going to feel in times of struggle. I’ve decided I can no longer feel like I’m dying inside and that it is time to be positive, hopeful and put up a fight. Never give up!

      • Yoga has done wonders for me during this year of challenges, as well as meditation, although I must admit it is sometimes difficult to still my mind. Hugs being sent your way πŸ™‚

      • Thank you LuAnn. I’ve become obsessed with yoga. Meditation is a little too hard right now emotionally but I do enjoy just the breathing and calming activities. So glad I found yoga! πŸ™‚

    • My dad was just diagnosed stage 4. That is why I am so incredibly devastated but today I decided I am NOT GOING TO GIVE IN anymore to feeling so sad. I am going to be like him and fight. He is so amazing and so positive. we are now faced with 4-6 months of aggressive chemo and my parents live in AZ while I’m here in MN. Thankfully we have the resources for me to fly out every 4-6 weeks and friends here who can help with my kids. It is going to be a VERY long, difficult journey but his doctor said it is just a number. It can be beat. We will not give in. Nor shall your friend.
