Post anything thats has any motivational message in it. Whether that be a picture you found,  quote, something you do when you lack motivation or a video. - motivation for anything - whether that be quite smoking, lose weight or get through the next hour or day. And can come here when need some motivation or stregnth for whatever reason. (Feel like we had thread similar but i just cant find it - so i think i imagined it?- sorry if we do)

I will start by saying when i was about probs 14 and was very suicidal i would type into youtube "motivation videos" and it would help me find some strength to just carry on for that bit longer - it did actually really help me -- until i watch them all too many times and the feelings when i first watched it - wore off lol. But i will share one i found this morning. 


It says " a setback is nothing but a set up for a come back"
“And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    This is a really nice thread. Really nice video too, thank you for sharing :) 

    I recently watched this interview with Oprah Winfrey a few weeks ago and found it really inspiring. It's really interesting to hear about her career and how she got to where she is today. 

    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    This thread :heart:


    Thought I would share this video, it's quite inspirational, and just shows that you can do anything you put your mind too, no matter what your ability. :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
