The last few days have been bad for me. I have been fighting a mild case of depression. I was asked by a spark friend what she could do and at that moment I came to realize that I had to fight this one alone. One of the reasons my depression was able to take over so easily was because I was lacking motivation and I was stressing myself out about a challenge and my monthly bills.

So I started looking at motivational sayings, pictures that were calming. Started working on my goals for BLC23. Started playing around with ideas for a new exercise plan and a new diet plan.

I am on meds for depression and anxiety but that doesn't stop them from happening. But I realise that I can't let depression win. I need to keep fighting, keep motivated, and take it one day at a time, and probably the biggest is don't worry about tomorrow. emoticon

    I have found over the years, that the things that I worried about either didn't happen, or I coped with them with very little trouble, but the things that totally derailed me, were things that I hadn't even thought to worry about! Totally unexpected things, out of the blue. So now I try to live much more in the here and now, and take pleasure from each day as it comes, thankful to still be alive. I let tomorrow take care of itself.

    I'm sorry to hear you're feeling lousy at the moment, but focusing on what you can do to make things better and to get yourself going in will be a big step in the right direction. It's really hard to do that when depression has you, but it will make such a difference.

Good luck kicking depression's butt!
