Hey guys, I've got an idea for a thread we could do here that's a little more interactive. The basic idea is that you post a mantra or an affirmation for yourself. Then you can read what others have suggested and maybe adapt it for yourself.

A mantra is usually a single word or phrase you say on repeat (this is a thing borrowed from Hinduism).
Mantras I've used recently:

  • Strength and acceptance
  • Serenity
  • Inhale, exhale

Affirmations are slightly longer phrases, but are a way of patting yourself on the back. They could point out a good character, physical or emotional trait you have
Mine I've used

  • I've been smiling more
  • My coworkers love working with me
  • 4 people complimented me today

So I know I've given lists already of some stuff, but if other guys got more they want to add to the list, we'll keep going. I'll try and give feedback when I can if I see some saying that I like or might want to use.

~~~Strength in stubbornness, Healing in hardiness

I love affirmations, when I came to MS, there was one article with affirmations for survivors, it changed my perspective completely.
I like your mantras as well, especially the first one: strength and acceptance.

Here is my affirmation for today:

- I'm peaceful and confident

I am good the way I am
Trust me, you are worth it to love yourself!

I now know who I am - I've never been anybody else!

My pace is perfect
Snakes in the grass beneath our feet, rain in the clouds above
Some moments last forever, but some flare out with love, love, love
