I am so glad that I posted my struggle with depression, I feel the support from my fellow crafters and that is such a motivating thing. This morning I was able to take a walk, do yoga, and jump on the trampoline before I completely crashed .
The good news is I took a nap and I am feeling a bit creative. I decided it was a good idea to start a self-scrapbook to document my happy moments and my accomplishments, that was when I am down in the dumps I can look thru my happy moments. #SELFISH is not bad! I am on a long road to recovery and I hope to be able to get thru this.
When I think of my successes, of course,I think of my children, educational degrees, and financial achievements. However, I tend to forget the things I have done that have taken sheer will power!! The dedication that I so often lack to do even the simplest things. I made a promise to myself and God that if I passed a test I would give up coke for a year. Now this might seem easy however, I am an avid coke drinker. I accomplished my goal!!! I sent 1 year 11 days, soda free!!! If I can do that I am sure I can do anything including getting out of my slump.

Would anyone like to join me in a NO STRESS self-discovery album? If anyone else out there would like to share accomplishments with me and use crafting as a healing tool, let me know. I would love to celebrate your accomplishments with you. I admit some days my accomplishments are minor for me and include remembering to eat or just getting out of bed, but I am going to ride my happy wave for as long as I can.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
