Thankful for my depression. Really?

Hello everyone! Wow! This year has just flown by for so many of us and often times in the winter when my depression strikes me most I’m instead taking this time to focus on the good in life. What I’m thankful for. I know I’m not perfect at this game but if I can try and know that at the end of the day I did my best then that is all that I can do.

I’ve realized I’m not Superman, and I really don’t have a body like him either. I really want to redirect my energy that my depression takes from me and give it somewhere else that needs attention. I really aspire to hit the gym and lose weight however I consistently find that I am really good at making up excuses for why I’m lot going or actively following a healthy lifestyle.

This week so many are traveling home to be with their loved ones for Thanksgiving. I’m staying in with some extended family and I’m going to do my best. I’m thankful for you, my family, my partner and my amazing husky whose 1 year anniversary of being home with us was yesterday!

I snapped this pic last night and realized just how lucky I am for this life. I wouldn’t trade this life for another..even if I could. I’m learning to be content in my own skin.

Still haven’t read “feeling good” yet..maybe when I have some downtime. We will see
