Hope For Today! May 15


Today is going to be a great day!

God’s mercy is new every morning. Lamentations 3:23


This is a good article. Since I shared with the world I was bipolar and came out from behind the mask in January 2022 it has been a new season in my life. 

“Just Be Yourself …?”

“Be yourself.” I believe people really just want you to be real with them and tell them the truth. Don’t sugar coat it but be genuine. 

This is from the below article I thought was insightful…

“Learning to Love My Whole Self

Someone once asked me, If I could get rid of my bipolar disorder, would I?

No matter how I’ve gotten to where I am now—whether it’s a result of my bipolar, my personality, or both—it’s my past that’s made me who I’m proud to be today.

My answer was, and still is, no.

I recognize that I have a lifelong mood disorder that needs ongoing care, just like diabetes or high blood pressure. I try to keep things in perspective. I surround myself with a strong support network of friends and family who can tell me if they see me start to go off the rails. I no longer focus on labels or worry about which aspects of my behavior are my personality or the illness.

Whatever the parts are that make up the whole of who I am, I like myself, and that’s what really matters.”

I’m not sure I feel the same way, I would not wish being bipolar on anyone. I know that sounds harsh but it’s being honest. It’s not easy. My life has been a journey and the love of my husband, Todd, has a lot to do with the outcome of my life. I know many men would have not stuck it out through all the difficult things we had to go through. It has been hard but God has seen us through. I know I would not be the person I am today if my life would have went differently. That is why I want to give hope to encourage those struggling also. After writing about all the challenges we lived through in my book, it makes me wonder how differently things might have turned out had I lived in Hope believing and not depression. My advice is live with Hope! The negative thoughts will come automatically but we have to chose to put the positive Word of God in us everyday and declare out loud who you are in Christ. The key word is chose. Chose each day to be positive and feed your mind only the positive. 

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭KJV‬‬
