That’s the one word that would describe this seventh technique that helped me through a very difficult time in my life.
For some reason, I was really drawn to quotes. I found that when I heard them and wrote them down, it actually made me feel a little better. I began to post them all over my house – mirrors, dressers, refrigerators… even on the steering wheel in my car. So no matter where I went, there was some quote that resonated with me.
They were about courage, hope, love. Some made me laugh and others made me cry, but each and every one made me believe in myself a little deeper, it made me feel a little stronger, even if only for a little while.
One of my favorite quotes is: “She believed she could, so she did.” I had a small plaque with those words on it and I put it smack dab in the middle of my dresser. I could read it every morning when I woke up and it helped me tackle the day. More importantly, I read it every night before I went to bed. That way I had seven or eight hours of sleep where this thought could percolate inside my head. It helped me believe in myself once again.
