…and we were forever thankful to have shared that time with a trailblazer. Here is a recipe that you might like to bring into your life: After I feel discouraged, I will look up to see Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rosalynn Carter, and Sandra Day O’Connor, urging me to soldier on then I’ll celebrate.
Yesterday when I was feeling, upset, overworked and overwhelmed, I needed to take a few minutes to acknowledge what I was feeling. I validated that it was OK to have those feelings. I knew they wouldn’t last forever. I knew that I just needed to take the time for a few deep breaths to center myself. With some self talk in there as well I was able to move on, finish my packing and preparation for travel. I’m now in Houston and about ready to party with my sisters in law.
Let’s make sure that we carry on Rosalynn Carter’s lifetime of service. As Carter family Pastor Tony Lowden said, Rosalynn would say, ‘Don’t stop! There are still too many people who suffer from mental illness. Don’t stop!’
A tiny habit recipe that is part of my life is the following: After my head hits the pillow at night, I will think of one thing that I am grateful for. I’ll celebrate by saying something like I love life l; I’m so happy to be alive; I’m a person who has many things to be grateful for, etc.
