Motivational board โœ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

As I mentioned before, and as you probably noticed yourself by now I love quotes๐Ÿ˜ itโ€™s an obsession really ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚, ah no! Completely seriously reading quotes was one way of keeping myself going from the beginning of this journey.

When in really bad circumstances like I was, and with so much time to (over)think๐Ÿคฏand (over)analyse๐Ÿคฏ as a wheelchair bound, nursing home resident, having a good way of motivating yourself and staying positive is essential! As I mentioned in my previous posts, videos/books/successfull recovery stories, etc., and quotes of course were my way of keeping up the hope and not giving up, staying strong๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ. It was my way of staying sane really, still is to this day… ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Everytime Iโ€™d feel low, and believe me that was happening, even though it might not seem that way sometimes…weโ€™re just humans, and bad days would creep in ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. I choose positive thinking throughout my journey, so Iโ€™d always try my best not to let any negativity into my life. However itโ€™s just unavoidable and bound to happen. On such days Iโ€™d often look at motivational/inspirational quotes online to lift up my spirits. And it worked! ๐Ÿค— Still does…ALWAYS!

One day I came up with this idea of making a board for my bedroom wall, so I could have that to look at during the day, while sitting in my room ๐Ÿฆฝ. Iโ€™d have motivational quotes written on it.
Not wasting any time I talked to my Occupational Therapist (OT) about it, and we discussed how we would make it, what we needed etc. We made a plan that we would use a white board and paint around it, ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–ผ since I love pink thatโ€™s the colour I went for and my OT also got sparkles โœจ๐Ÿ˜. When I think about it now I actually never liked pink colour for some reason, and now it really grew on me, I could go as far as saying itโ€™s one of my favourite ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿฅฐ! When my motivational board was ready we came up with an idea that Iโ€™d choose quotes, and write โœ๐Ÿผ them on the board myself every week. Motivation and also practicing my writing skills ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ. Genius idea!

Bare in mind that first time in my life I was writing with my left (functional) hand โœ๐Ÿผโœ‹๐Ÿผ. My left arm is functional, yet still not a 100%, so the writing is shaky and not very nice, but legible ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผโœ… thatโ€™s what counts! Unfortunately my right (dominant) hand ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿผisnโ€™t functional YET! Iโ€™m working on it! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผand when Iโ€™m finished Iโ€™ll be a leftie and a righty also ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ #unique #multitasking ๐Ÿ˜œ

Iโ€™d like to take this opportunity to thank my lovely OT for working with me since I was admitted there! Always there for me, always helpful, wrapping my Christmas presents ๐ŸŽ, helping me decorate my bedroom wall, baking cookies ๐Ÿช, painting my nails ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป, chatting about Grace & Frankie on Netflix (our favourite series, also Friends-a classic ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ), making predictions about a Great British Bake Off winner ๐Ÿง, but most importantly always being a great company! Every time we chatted we would laugh like crazy ๐Ÿ˜…, making jokes, or just reminiscing about the times when we were in school (since we were very similar age). Often I couldnโ€™t catch my breath ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿคฃ. Things like Bebo ๐Ÿ˜‚ (before Facebook), popular music back then (Cascada ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š)…. very funny memories. Iโ€™ll never forget them ๐ŸฆˆMiss K๐Ÿฆˆ (you know well why I chose a shark๐Ÿ˜œ) ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒป

Growing up in the 90โ€™s ๐Ÿ†š now ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Writing the above just reminded me about all those things we laughed at, the main subject seemed to be the difference between being a teenager back then (growing up in the 90โ€™s) versus now ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ. I actually laughed so hard ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ looking at some of the memes online- theyโ€™re ALL so true ๐Ÿ’ฏ, I just chose these three to give you a laugh! โฌ‡๏ธ

Coming back to my motivational board, this was the last quote I had written before leaving Orwell, and it stayed on it the longest! (for weeks and weeks) ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

One of the girls that was taking care of me from the beginning, (back in 2017) when I was admitted left for a new job. On her last day in work she wrote this on my board ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ Thank you for everything Miss S๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒป, youโ€™ve always believed in me and cheered me on! I really appreciate your kind words, Iโ€™ll keep going! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ you know that! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Few days after, my psychologist added this little comment๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ. Thank you for everything also Miss A๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒป, I want you to know that youโ€™re a brilliant therapist and you have taught me a lot! Iโ€™ll never forget you! I started blogging thanks to your little nudge ๐Ÿ˜‰ (And I WILL! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฃ) ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

I really like this particular quote and it stayed on my board the longest, because of the special additions ๐Ÿ˜. I wiped it off just a few days ago, when I officially left. But I have a picture, so Iโ€™ll never forget…#memories

This just makes me realise that thereโ€™s one good thing about me ending up there (everything happens for a reason). It was a part of my journey, where Iโ€™ve met and worked with some amazing people. People who encouraged me, cheered me on and believed in me! Hugged me when I cried ๐Ÿงธ, took care of me, supported me, spoke kind words, added something valuable to my life…. #grateful. Those people Iโ€™ll not forget. Ever. โ˜บ๏ธIโ€™m officially closing the nursing home (resident) chapter! ๐Ÿ”’
