#QOTD #49

Been having a particularly tough time managing my stresses, especially at work. Generally, positive thinking is what I do, it’s my natural approach to anything I face. 

However, of late it’s becoming more and more difficult for me to do. This is a very dangerous space to be in, especially for me because I’ve worked so hard to get out of a verg negative era of my life. 

So amongst other things, I’ve been perusing online in hope to come across something that would spark some sought of positivity within… 

Bubblegum characters always lighten up my soul

… to shed some light in what seems to be a very dark space, I came across these bubblegum figures and this quote: (God bless the written word and the writers who write them)

” The darkest hour has only 60 minutes “

~ Morris Mandel 


This quote got me pondering instantly. It reassured me that nothing in this life time is ever permanent and that even dark times have their expiry dates. #aameen

I remember reading that actions derive from thoughts. This stuck with me and will continue to stick with me as I journey through this thing called life. 

This is why, when I think about more negative than positive things, I frantically search for something, anything, just to change my thought process.

I think it’s essential that we do this before we get consumed. Seems like this quote and my bubble gang are  my life lines for today, tomorrow shall see for itself.

โ™ฅ๏ธ and ๐ŸŒˆ from just an ordinary stressed out girl!

  1. I love the line ‘even dark days have an expiry date’.. I say aameen to that. Love love this post. So uplifting. Reminds me of something that caught my attention a few days ago. My spirits were a little on the low side. I put the tv on to drown out the noise in my mind. I switched to a random channel. On that channel the movie the Prince of Egypt was on. It was the line that got my attention. In that moment of my questioning everything around me, in the movie Moses said “Believe… and you will see… God’s Wonder…” such a wonderful post ๐Ÿ˜„
