You’re stuck.

 

You’re feeling discouraged that your efforts didn’t pan out.

You’re disappointed because you thought for sure you would move a head, just a little bit, this time.

Now you’re depressed because it seems there is nothing you can do to help yourself.

You’re feeling hopeless and helpless

 

Instead, how about this:

 

You’re stuck.   Yippee!!

That means you didn’t go backward!

You haven’t lost ground!

You aren’t at square one–you don’t have to start over from scratch!

You lived to tell about it, which means it wasn’t fatal!

 

WooHoo!!!

 

Need help getting into the spirit of celebrating? Go to YouTube and listen to these songs:

 

Celebrate, celebrate!   Dance to the music! ~3 Dog Night (at about 1:24 the second half of the song will really get you going!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO_R5puXs6E

 

And, whether the words resonate with you or not, this song will get you going, too:

CELEBRATE, my Pep Pal Friend!   Keep telling yourself, “Yes I Can” because it’sTRUE!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
