Lately it seems I’ve been bogged down with depression. I’m sad and discouraged in almost every aspect of my life. So the big picture looks really grim.
Based on a post from a fellow blogger, I decided that every day I will find at least one thing (small as it might be) to be thankful for.
The first day started out great! One of my friends delivered her healthy baby boy, I went shopping with a gift card and found socks, gloves and tops that weren’t Made in China, I prepared a very tasty soup with ingredients I had in the house without a recipe, I had a wonderful walk with my dogs.
I was inspired. I had decided to find one positive thing in my life and I’d found four!
The next day was snowy, I wore boots in to work and didn’t bring shoes, so I wore slippers all day. I started a Facebook page to share my gratitude that was embraced by my friends. People loved the idea and began sharing their gratitude.
The next couple of days brought some challenges, but I still found things to be grateful for, not the least of which is the support I’ve been getting for this project.
My hope is if you are struggling, depressed, or just need a little pick me up, you will find yourself here or on my Facebook page and realize that you are not alone and no matter what is going on in your life, you can find something positive to be grateful for.
Thanks for joining me on this journey,
Until next time,
