Hi, All! Happy Friday Eve and the last day of January! We made it!
Only 48 days to go until Spring! Yeah, I know… It can also snow in the Spring too. However, I’m hopeful that it won’t happen.
So, on a personal note, I got through January without falling into the abyss of depression. Sure, I’ve had my issues with insomnia, but overall I feel alright. I’ll have to be honest here when I say, I’m a bit apprehensive about the upcoming months.
You see, it’s this time of year when I usually become depressed. However, it was back in September of 2018 when the onset of depression struck me down. That to me was very unusual. Then again, I had a great deal on my plate and was very overwhelmed by it all.
Although I know a depressive state could take over, I am going to fight it tooth and nail to keep it at bay.
What truly helps me is that I’ve been trying to keep my mind focused on me being more creative. The more I pay attention to a project of writing poetry, per se, I get out of my own head.
Simply by doing chores around the house with my favorite music blasting, gets me out of my own head.
I’m concentrating on becoming stronger by reading affirmations that give me purpose, goals, insight, and inspiration.
I avoid movies that I know might trigger me or make me sob. I either watch comedies, documentaries, or I know this one would probably surprise you, but true to life crime stories. I’m more fascinated by forensics. I’m not that twisted, folks.
Anything to avoid leaping off a cliff, I do. Why? Because I’m fearful of falling.
So, that’s my thoughts in a nutshell. Keep on, keeping on! Don’t sweat the small stuff, never give in and never give up!
Here’s to closing out January, and welcoming in February!
Take Care & God Bless,
