What my depression looks like…

A few weeks back I was struggling with my feelings between happiness and sadness. I am very aware/ openly diagnosed with mild depression and I knew that something wasn’t right so immediately, I try to get myself in check. Below, is what my depression looked like as I rose this morning, I woke up to my HOUSE a mess. Desperately wanting to just jump back into the bed, I decided to fix my space. Am I the only one that prefers an organized space?IMG_2102Well maybe not.

I’m sharing this so whoever may read this does not feel alone. It’s okay and you’ll get through it. What may work for me may not work for you but do what does. Taking long walks, visit your favorite restaurant, buy a new plant, whatever!  Let’s get through this together.IMG_2138

I’m not sure if he’s homeless or if he just hangs out there. I told myself that I’m going to ask him what the secret is because he seems very happy. I ignored my intuition about writing this because of processing, but my friend sent me a TEDx Bloomington talk this morning because most people know I enjoy a good Ted Talk.

Manhattan Bound 2 Train

I had recently become accustomed to using my beats solo wireless headphones and since Friday, only one earphone works. So today I choose to listen to all the side conversations, the sound of the air conditioner, the conductor’s random announcements and the moving train on my commute home today. Which brings me to the notes section of my iPhone to jot down my thoughts and brings me here, to my little ol’ blog.  Continue reading “Currently”

And for once, I’m not nervous about August

Over the last few years, when July would come to a close, I would dread August. For so many reasons to name but mostly because August was always full of disappointment. I’m not sure when it started but I knew the neck pains I felt during the prior years was REAL. Continue reading “And for once, I’m not nervous about August”
