It takes work checking out your body and how you were feeling. It takes discipline and courage. Many people who are prone to depression don’t want to check on themselves. They prefer to let things be. The problem with that, is that when we just let things be we fall into lethargy. A kind of stupor and we feel exhausted just from not doing anything.
However, today is about taking a break. You have worked hard. You may not have followed all the days, in fact, I don’t expect you to. When I read a blog like this, I usually find one or two things that compel me to do them, and other things just don’t resonate with me. And that is perfectly fine. Life is not a test. This is not a score board. There are no winners and losers in life; just people doing things. People taking action or people not taking action. It doesn’t matter. What matters is how you feel. How you feel about you. How you feel about your life.
When I suffer from depression, I feel that I am wasting my life. Like I was meant to do something but I didn’t know what. I would even ask friends and family members, “What do you think I am supposed to do? What do you think is my purpose?” And of course no one can answer that. My family would try to boost me up by saying things like, “You are amazing. You can do anything you set your mind to. You are a powerful woman.”
But you know how it is—if something doesn’t resonate, it doesn’t mean much. So today is about you taking a break. Giving yourself a break. You have read this far, you have allowed healing words to penetrate your mind, body and spirit—you are already doing the work.
Everything begins with awareness. You being aware and willing to read this blog tells me that you are already changing from a depressed person to a person of vitality. And today it is time to take a break from thinking and doing.
Today is your day. What would you like to do? You can do anything within your world that is possible. Make it a great day. Your life, your choice, your world. My friend, today make a positive choice to have wonderful moments and I will too.
