Life isn’t always easy. Everyone has ups and downs day to day, and experiences difficulties, confusion and complicated situations. I am sure there has been a time, or many times, that you have gone through something, that makes you feel like you are the only one going through it. Once you reach out though, you learn that so many others are dealing with same problem as in some way or another.
When I first began experiencing my digestive problems, I thought I was literally the only one in the world going through it. As years passed by, and my gut problems progressed, I just fell deeper into a slump, wondering why I was the only one dealing with this. I never saw commercials or ads about digestive disorders, or heard anyone talking about them.
Once I started doing more research and reading up on digestive disorders, I came across other stories of people with problems that sounded exactly like mine. Once I finally learned about what I was dealing with, I also began to learn about so many others that had a story similar to mine. I have recently started a digestive disorder support group and have met so many other wonderful people who have lived a life, and who are living a life much like mine. It made me realize that I am not the only one going through this problem. Talking with others with IBD has been so cool (as weird as that sounds), because I can talk to them about issues that they can relate with and truly understand. I’ve said it before, but I think that support groups and talking with others about your situation has a huge impact (positively) on your healing and journey to a healthier life.
A little while back I stumbled across a website called Soul on the Go, where they sell sticky notes that have quotes and affirmations written on them. I thought it was such a great idea to see these, as many times when people are going through a tough time, they just need to read positive quotes to help push them through the day and realize that life really isn’t that bad.
Soul on the Go has many different types of themed packs with different quotes inside each, including, sports, wisdom, general, motivation, money, wellness, body and motivation. I have the wellness, body and motivation packs.
I love all of the quotes and I have stuck a few of my favourites all around my room. When I look at them, they lift my spirit a bit and put a smile across my face and remind me how great my life is. Check out their website and learn more about these little stickies at http://www.soulonthego.com/.
