Is there a quote that inspires you? Please share.

I have a few, but this is one of my favorites. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Do you have something that you say that motivates you? We would like to hear from you. Diane (Team Member)

  1. , love that quote! It's amazing how simple words can inspire and encourage us. I do have a quote that actually pretty much changed my life and how I view my life with a chronic illness:


    “If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ” - Mary Engelbreit



    There's a similar one from Maya Angelou - "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."


    Your post reminded me of the following article by Alisha, where she shared three quotes that she lives by: https://plaquepsoriasis.com/living/quotes-live-by I notice I posted the same Mary Engelbreit quote in the comments there - at least I'm consistent 😄


    Great topic, Diane. Can't wait to read others' quotes! Warmly, -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. Hello , I really like those. My father has one that he says a lot - I will live as long as I can and die when I can't help it. He will be 90 on 3/6. I'm sure I have mentioned this to everyone in ears reach. Thanks for the information. Diane (Team Member)

  2. I AM ___________ and the words you put after them are what make you you. I just heard this at an NPF event this past weekend. I believe they said it was a quote by Aristotle. It really hit home with me. We struggle so much with who we are living with psoriasis that those two words and what you put in the blank defines who we are whether it be good or bad.

    1. I AM AN OVERCOMER. When I was given my first biologic I thought I would be cured. I didn't know then what I know now. I even told my husband I would let him out of our marriage since I didn't know how bad it would get. 15 years later we are still going strong. Vickie W., Team Member

    2. , what a powerful statement! That is truly inspiring. I hope one day I can fill in the blank with such a strong, positive word. I think a lot of us can relate to thinking that a medication is going to cure us, especially at the start of our journeys. I'm sad that you felt that you had to say that to your hubby, but I am not surprised at all that you are still going strong together 15 years later. You are such a strong, amazing person. Hugs! -Catherine, Community Moderator

  3. Hello , WOW!!! That is so true. Diane (Team Member)

    1. Mines are simple but I have two. My first one is "Nothing is impossible" and the other is "Let it be" I can't tell you how many times to bounce between the two throughout the day. "Nothing is impossible" comes to me at most times when I am trying my best at something and I often have many reasons mentally on way I shouldn't do whatever it is I am trying to set my mind up to do. Then "Let it be" is my reminder to release my control and allow life to do as it will and accept the things I can not change. -Latoya (Team Member)

      1. Hello Nothing is Impossible!! I needed to read that today. Diane (Team Member)
