Mindset Manifesto

Writing a personal manifesto is a great activity for analyzing your thoughts. It’s also quite a creative and absorbing process.

I made a decision that I’d like to write my manifesto for my mindset having this neurological condition called Epilepsy. I’d never done such a thing prior but had come across another writer who had crafted a similar blog in reference to their habits.

Here we go!

MINDSET MANIFESTO

  • Acknowledge that your condition exists BUT draw the line at allowing it power over you.
  • Each day, count your blessings. Name them aloud. Even journal them.
  • Adopt positive healthy hobbies & habits. You want to get better right?
  • There will be days you’re going to want to cry. Cry. There’s no shame in emotion. Just don’t let your tears become an ocean and drown.
  • Surround yourself with family and friends who are willing and able to build and lift you up as you recover. Good people is good medicine in itself.
  • Know that you may experience a variety of challenges you may have never come up against before, and at times you might feel the urge to want to give up but don’t give up.  Persist! It gets easier and you are far from alone.
  • Become a sponge of knowledge about your condition.
  • Meet others who wear the same shoes you do (Metaphorically speaking). Speak in support groups, online support groups, fundraiser walks etc.
  • Allow yourself joy and give the gift of joy to as many individuals as you are able to who are on the journey of epilepsy, whether they be living with epilepsy or caring for someone with it.
  • With each new morning, start the day off with a thank you to God and one brand new goal in mind.

Have you ever composed your own manifesto? If you wrote a manifesto for mindsets what might you add (or take away)?

    Very nicely done! As you wrote I at times feel like giving up to. My main concern is for my wife. She gives me that inner strength to keep going. For the years of my life, with epilepsy I am trying to find a solution for a way to get better. Everyone always tells me about how qiet I am about it. Basically, I have just dealt with it. I due believe that being a part of a group can be a help.That way , you can realize how you are not the only one out there.

      Thank you Charlie. 🙂 Our life partners are incredible sources of strength for our journey. That is so wonderful to hear that you continue to grow and search for ways to get better! Yes you are correct. Being a part of a group gives you the opportunity to become inspired, strengthened, motivated and in turn, give the same to others. I pray all the best for you! God bless!
