Good Morning!


Today is a new day. Today, we have the power to choose whether we continue with the old of yesterday or embrace our new beginning. And what better day to do that then a Monday!

Before I continue, I understand that some of us do not have this power. Some of us are stuck or tied down to our depression, our anxiety, our disorders. And that’s okay. But, I want to encourage you to do at least one new, positive thing today to help move forward. 

Do what you can, and be proud of it. 

I struggle a lot with this. Who knows, my coffee may wear off and I’ll be back to how I was yesterday. But, I don’t want to be there anymore. I want to have the strength to fight against these thoughts I’ve been having and kick depression in it’s ass and throw it out of my mind. 

Even writing this, I still have negative thoughts. “Don’t tell them your plans, you won’t follow through.” “I’ll be here to haunt you all day.” “You’re lazy as fuck.”

I can’t promise I’ll have the strength to get through this today. Maybe it’ll be tomorrow, maybe it’ll be months from now. But, each day I will fight. And I will fight hard. 

What are some ways you fight against depression? What’s worked for you in the past? For me, I’m trying new things and would love advice.

  1. some beautiful thoughts here. I fight depression thinking about loved ones, thinking about love, I fight depression by spilling it onto the page and making it mine. Its an on going fight I’ve learnt to win, and I know you will too x

  2. Movement has always pulled me from the depths whether it be yoga, walking, dancing. Being in nature always helps set me back into a balanced rhythm as well and within the last couple of years I’ve found meditation to be so healing. It used to be a nightmare for me to sit with myself in silence but now its very soothing and helps me transition my mind. Somedays I just need rest which can be a challenge because resting doesn’t always feel like an accomplishment but I work hard on building my truths stronger than my illusive thinking. Keep preserving, Elizabeth!
