Sunshine from the rain

Write down things that make you happy.  Things you can do when times get rough to try to help bring you joy in the darkness.  Think of little things that don’t take a lot of energy so even when you feel like you are over tired you can still manage.  You can write anything down like:

  • coloring
  • reading
  • petting your beloved pets
  • sitting in the sun shine
  • listening to music
  • smelling flowers
  • watching your favorite movie
  • drawing
  • working on crafts
  • playing with clay

Try every day to put depression at bay.  It’s not easy, but it is worth while.

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?
Spring?


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.
