Today is Day 21 of #HAWMC (WEGO’s Health Activist Writers Monthly Challenge). The prompt today is:
Monday Motivation: What’s your life slogan?
Explain what words or mantra keep you going and why.
I’ve spoken about quotes that help me through, but there is one mantra that I will start to chant when things get particularly tough.
Just keep swimming.
When I saw Finding Nemo and heard Dory say, “Just Keep Swimming”, to get her through all of her challenges, I started saying it to remind me to keep going even through the hard times. It started out as a joke, but it stuck around because it made me feel better. If I can “just keep swimming” I’ll be okay.
I admit when this prompt came up I had no idea what to write about, I’ve already told most of what I live by, my favorite mindfulness quotes that mean so much to me and the chant I use when I have vertigo, but those things just didn’t seem to fit in here. I turned and asked my hubby what he thought and he immediately said, “Just Keep Swimming”. I guess it’s a pretty good mantra, and I guess he knows me pretty well.

I suppose mine might be (never considered I had one) “Life is good!” No matter how rotten I may feel–Life is good! 😉

That’s a pretty good slogan!
Life IS good!
I used to have a life slogan, but I’m afraid I’ve kinda lost some of my belief in it — that I’m a Warrior Princess.

You ARE the Warrior Princess!!
My warrior queen.
Thanks — some days the sword’s a bit rusty, and the shield’s a bit dented. Guess my other slogan is s**t/life happens.
Yep life happens. Just don’t get so caught up in the shit that you miss the life. There’s a lot of shit to wade through, but there’s a lot of goodness out there, sometimes you have to really hunt for it.
Much love my friend.
