When the emptiness comes, remember you are not alone. We are never truly alone, no matter how much our minds try to tell us otherwise.


Spring Fling

I am slowly feeling spring easing in
It’s creeping slowly into my fibers,
through my bones
and right to my very core.
The sun stays out longer,
it welcomes me
and dares me to play.
Cautiously I peek outside,
could it be?

This winter was very hard.  I slipped and battled with my body and my anxieties.  My depression fought me and while it won some battles I won the war.  Hopefully this Spring will bring everyone happiness and joy.  Warmth in the sun, flowers to smell and things that remind us of happier times.  Remember to clutch to things that make you happy on days when you feel the lowest.  Never give up on the battle.  You are not alone.
