Your Motivational Quote for October 17, 2018

Hi, Shirley here from your PatientNextDoor support team.

How many times have you heard where people are trying to find themselves?

Finding oneself has been a phenomenon since the 1960s.  However, what is that isn’t what life is all about? What if we don’t need to find ourselves, but rather to reinvent ourselves every day.

That means we take who we are today and do gentle improvements not on where we are in life, but rather who we are.

By taking a long, hard look at who we are who we wish to be, we can create and recreate ourselves into the people that make planet earth and humanity so beautiful.

Just a message from me to you on this cool (in the United States at least) October day.

I count it a privilege and an honor to come to you with my thoughts on life and hope you are enjoying them as well.

Your Motivational Quote for October 15, 2018


HI, it’s Shirley of your PatientNextDoor Support Team.

We live in a world where everything is expected to happen quickly.  We want instant gratification in many areas that are better if we take our time. Sometimes, we just have no choice.

I have been very ill over the past few decades. I won’t go into specifics, suffice it to say, it has held me back from meeting all the goals I wanted in life.

In the view of our modern fast-paced society, I am a failure. I didn’t get married until I was 33 and that failed. I attempted over and over again to graduate from college and finally received my diploma after 37 years of trying.

However, what Confucius said so many years ago is very true.

I have realized in my middle-aged life, that the things that take you the longest time to achieve are the ones you hold the dearest.

I have a great amount of self-satisfaction that I was able to finally graduate. Not only this, but the slow pace gave me an edge when it came to grades. I was more mature when I finally returned to college the last time, and as a result got excellent grades.

I have a deeper understanding of my single life as well. I like being single. I do not need a companion to complete me, because I am enough.

Don’t let the world dictate to you how fast or far you must go to be considered a success. Sometimes the biggest successes are those made by the people who have tried the hardest. No matter how long it takes us to achieve what we want in life, it is all good.

Enjoy your life. Stop pushing and pushing until you are depressed and overwrought. I mean, really, we are all in this together and none of us are getting out of life alive.

Good morning!

It’s Shirley again, from your PatientNextDoor support team.

Taking good care of ourselves is a priority if we are to help our families and others. If that means going off by yourself, relaxing alone, or even taking a vacation by yourself, quiet, private time is vital to maintaining your mental health.

It’s not selfish, it’s self-care.

You have a wonderful day and weekend!

Your Motivatonal Saying for October 11, 2018

Hello, welcome to Thursday!

How many of you believe in yourself? Come on, be honest.

Many of you may agree with the statement that you cannot believe in yourself because you have made poor choices, or because someone else told you that you are worthless.

I have two statements to say about those reasons.

One. Bull.

Two. You are not alone.

As for number one, no one is worthless and we all make mistakes.

Condemning ourselves because of something stupid we’ve done or because of what others say about us is uncalled for. Everyone and I do mean everyone, makes mistakes, and no one has the right to put you down for any reason.

And, as for number two, we’re all in this together.

That is one reason why we have made PatientNextDoor app and blog site available to you. We want to encourage you and help you to encourage others.

Your Motivational Quote for October 10, 2018

Good day everyone, it’s Shirley from your PatientNextDoor Support Team.

Today, October 10, 2018, is World Mental Health Day. It’s a day where the population of our planet can act as one to emphasize the importance of mental health.

All humans are highly susceptible to developing mental health issues, as one in four of us will experience a mental illness in our lifetimes.

That being said, 100% of humans living today will experience a mental health crisis due to a job loss, lost love, or the death of a loved one.

There are many ways people can be impacted by life events that traumatize and change our lives. Today we spend a whole day thinking about, speaking on and making decisions about what to do if we or someone we love develops one of the thousands of mental health issues.

Today we are focusing on awareness, but also on the ways we can help others as well as ourselves.

One of the best ways I have found along my own journey down the road less taken to mental health is the use of quotes from others who have understood my struggles because they have been there.

Below are only a few of the millions of the growing file of quotes available on the Internet today. Read them, use them, and quote them to someone you know or to yourself in the mirror on your bad days.

“Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~ Saint Francis of Assisi

“I cannot stand the words ‘Get over it’. All of us are under such pressure to put our problems in the past tense. Slow down. Don’t allow other to hurry your healing. It is a process, one that may take years, occasionally, even a lifetime – and that’s OK.” ~ Beau Taplin

“You are beautiful because you let yourself feel, and that is a brave thing indeed.” ~ Shinji Moon

“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of the world but those who fight and win battles that others do not know anything about.” ~ Jonathan Harnisch

“You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen.” ~ Kody Keplinger

“Turn your demons into art, your shadow into a friend, your fear into fuel, your failures into teachers, your weaknesses into reasons to keep fighting. Don’t waste your pain. Recycle your heart.” ~ Andrea Balt

“Your illness is not your identity. Your chemistry is not your character.” ~ Pastor Rick Warren

“Promise me you’ll always remember — you’re braver than you believe and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~ Christopher Robin from Winnie The Pooh

“I have come to realize making yourself happy is most important. Never be ashamed of how you feel. You have the right feel any emotion you want and do what makes you happy.” ~ Demi Lovato

“Let today be the day you stop living within the confines of how others define or judge you.” ~Steve Maraboli

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.” ~ Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.” ~Charles Bukowski

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have the right to be here.” — Max Ehrmann

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” ~ Douglas Adams from

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ~ Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

“Even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there.” ~ Charlie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.”  ~ Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Happy Tuesday everyone, it’s Shirley from your PatientNextDoor support team.

As a survivor of severe childhood trauma, the saying above was the first thing about my healing process that I understood.

Having gotten into therapy, I was desperate for the process to be over.

Then one day, one of my closest friends quoted “The only way out is through” by Robert Frost

I pondered over what the quote meant, and finally understood something very important.

The issues I faced in my recovery through therapy was not going to be a quick fix. There are no such things.

I couldn’t go around my problems, I couldn’t go beneath them or over them.

The only way to get well and gain a sane and happy life was to go through the process of recovery.

I hope if you are in therapy or struggling today with an issue that you are not just finding hope in today’s quote.

I hope you are finding rays of sunshine peeking through the clouds in every quote I post here on PatientNextDoor.

If so, would you please leave a comment below? Just a few words to say that you enjoy what we are trying to do, uplift and help as many as we can and let them know,

You are not alone.

Hello and welcome to Monday. It’s Shirley from your PatientNextDoor support team.

This quote from Lysa Terkeurst speaks volumes all by itself.

People once thought that breaking the sound barrier and landing on the moon were impossible dreams. However, history and the ingenuity of mankind proved them wrong.

What seemingly impossible tasks are lying in your path to inner peace and happiness? Do you believe in your heart that you cannot overcome them?

If so, then take a lesson from the humble caterpillar. These tiny insects begin life as a small larva eating leaves and other vegetation. They are not pretty nor do they aspire to be so.

Then one day they weave a cocoon about themselves and remain inside for many days.

Suddenly, one warm day, they emerge a beautiful butterfly.

Had the caterpillar considered being ugly and small something they could never overcome, they never would have realized their potential and flown away into the sky.

All humans have a great potential for becoming beautiful and enriching themselves and the world.

This includes you too.

So, when you see the moon at night remember how many said down through the centuries we could never go there. Then realize, your journey, like Apollo 11 and the metamorphosis of the caterpillar are one and the same.

You are on a road of discovery and fulfillment.

Hello everyone, it’s Shirley from your PatientNextDoor support team.

How true is it that life is a journey and not a destination! I know, it is human nature to push our way through life fearing the next day or moment because it may not take us where we want to go.

One of the most important lessons I have learned is that life was never supposed to be striving for something bigger and better. No. It is supposed to be an adventure we can enjoy and relish.

Of course, there will be bad things happen. However, why run and run trying to catch up to the carrot we dangle before us as though if we can ever catch it we’ll finally be happy.

Life is a journey, a road trip if you will. It’s not trying to get somewhere. I mean, in the end, the destination for us all is the same, death.

I don’t want to spend my life striving for a carrot, running forward and never enjoying my life here on planet Earth.

I hope you feel the same.

Enjoy your life, you not getting out of it alive!

You Inspiration Quote for October 4, 2018

It is easy to get so caught up in or problems that we don’t stop to appreciate what we have in our lives that is beautiful.

It is by remembering to pull away from what is bothering us and looking at the positives in our lives that we endure and live happier lives.

Like the quote above states, by allowing one thing that is bothering you to consume all your time and energy on your problems you can miss the wonderful things that all about you.

Good day everyone, it’s me again, Shirley from your Patient Next Door Support Team.

Success, what does it mean to you?

Does it mean “making it” in the world where you own riches and lands?

Does it mean having a college education?

I put it to you that it means a lot more than either of those things.

Success to me is being happy with who you are, with what you have, and enjoying your life.

Not that every day will be a party, but taking the best and running with it so you have something to remember when life gets rotten.

Every small win should propel you forward. That means learning from your mistakes and not being dragged down and owned by them.

It’s okay, not to be okay. Just take a good deep breath and try to remember,  the rain will stop and the sun will shine again.

“I rise to taste the dawn, and find that love alone will shine today.” ~ Ken Wilber

Your Motivational Quote for September 28, 2018

Hey everyone, its Shirley from your Patient Next Door Support Team.

Failures and mistakes, have you ever experienced them?  Of course, you have. All humans make mistakes and experience failures. Sometimes these events can be life-changing.

How have you allowed these challenges to affect you? Have you gotten angry and resentful at life? Or have you done something far more noble and constructive like learning from what has happened?

Yep, you and I are going to mess up and sometimes our mistakes will affect not just us but those we care for the most. If we do mess up, we have two choices.

One, we can blame others for our mistakes and feel self-righteous and sorry for ourselves thinking life isn’t fair.

~or~

Two, we can get back up, brush ourselves off, make amends where possible and then ask ourselves a series of questions like the following:

What can I learn from that mistake that will help me make a better choice next time?

How can I incorporate what I learned into my everyday life?

And, finally, where do I want to go from here?

Letting go of self-righteousness, indignation, and looking at ourselves honestly while learning from our mistakes makes us strong resilient and a wonderful example to our children.

Hey there, it’s Shirley from the Patient Next Door Support Team.

Well, I’m running late today but I did get your motivational post up and running! Just more proof that I’m a human being at a computer and not a computer myself!

When you consider the above quote, what does it bring to mind?  Does it conjure a picture in your mind of something you would like to do, but are afraid to try?

Or does it make you think of missed opportunities in the past?

Either way, it is never too late to gather up the courage to strike out and change your life. Saying “I Can” instead of “I should, but I won’t” can change your attitude, your life and the way others see you.

At 58, I am striking out on a writing career. Yep, at almost 60 I am finally following my biggest life’s dream. If someone as simple and backward as myself can do it, you can too!

I believe in you!
