Sometimes no matter what you do, there will be emotional flare ups.
The journey then becomes–more than ever–one step at a time, one breath at a time, one word at a time.
Appreciate and be grateful for each step that you’re able to take.
The opposite of depression isn’t happy, it’s appreciation. Maybe depression should be called depreciation, because it’s a state of not being able to see beyond the darkness.
The mind has cast its net too far and wide. It’s important to bring your attention back to what’s in front of you. Focus on just that one fishing pole, and the fish of good feeling will bite, if you’re patient.
Prayer helps. And singing, even if it’s just humming a tune. Or turn on some soothing music.
I ask my True Self for help, guidance, support, and love. Then I take one step at a time through the darkness.
The light always comes again.
The storm always passes.
