So if you didn't know, I'm sick. But that's not what I'm going to write about, because that's not uplifting! I'm grateful for my momma since she went and got me nyquil, cough drops, zicam, and boxes of kleenex. I don't have a car here so I would have needed to borrow hers anyway, it was super nice to just sleep and have someone else take care of me (which is not the norm during a deployment).

So yesterday was spent sleeping, eating, drinking water, and repeating multiple times. When I was awake I was popping Halls like a mad woman... about 5 cough drops in I noticed the following:

Talk about a kick in the pants! Haha... I love all the phrases:
  • A pep talk in every drop
  • March forward!
  • You got it in you.
  • Keep your chin up.
  • Don't try harder. Do harder!
  • Power through!
  • Bet on yourself.
  • Let's hear your battle cry!
  • Put your game face on.
Others not in this picture, that I found throughout the day:
  • The show must go on. Or work.
  • Seize the day.
  • Be unstoppable.
  • You've survived tougher.
  • Don't waste a precious minute.
  • Be resilient.
  • Go for it.
  • Get back in there champ!

Talk about motivation from the most unlikely of sources... these are great little quotes that don't just apply to getting through a cold/flu! I hope one of them resonates with you this morning. Which are your favorites? Mine are in maroon.

Have a great week!


    1. Those are cool! I like the battle cry the best, I think. :)

    2. haha I wrote a blog post about the same thing! although.. I wasn't as positive as you. I was in the throws of being miserable and didn't understand why these phrases were included

      Hope you're feeling better soon!

    3. What neat little sayings! And they're perfect for military life :)

    4. Hope you feel all better soon!

    5. Those are awesome!! Hope you start feeling better.

      Thank for your the prayers for our little guy, he was able to come home on oxygen yesterday.


    I love hearing from you all! =)
