Some Quotes to Get Us Started

Welcome to Mental Minutes!  We’ll be updating the blog regularly, so be sure to check back. We’ll talk about different kinds of mental health issues and concerns. Thanks for visiting!

First, here’s a poem we really liked.

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will.

When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill.

When the funds are low and the debts are high.

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit.

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns.

As every one of us sometime learns.

And many a failure turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out.

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-

You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out-

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far.

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-

It’s when things seem worst that you must not QUIT.

-Anonymous

And here’s another, just for good measure.  This is an excerpt from One Day My Soul Just Opened Up by Iyanla Vanzant.

“There is no one who does not make mistakes. Mistakes are a way of human life. We mistake what we see for the truth. We do not realize that there is always more to life than we can see and that truth is not always visible to the naked eye. We mistake what we know for all there is. What we do not realize is, we don’t always know the whole story. At any given time in your life, there are characters, plots, and story lines that have not been presented. When we do not know the whole story, almost any conclusion you draw will be a mistaken conclusion. We mistake dour experiences, particularly bad experiences, to be indications of who we are and what we deserve. Even when we know we deserve better, we mistake our experiences for obstacles that can keep us from experiencing more. Sometimes, we make the mistake of thinking that other people have the power to control or alter our destiny. It is our beliefs, mistaken and otherwise, that ultimately determine what we will do or be in life, not another person.”

Just a couple things to meditate for the week. We’ll be back next week with more Mental Minutes!
