I’m deciding to turn today around. Everyone has these happy posts about their New Years resolutions and goals for the year, and I’m here whining about how I feel depressed.
I do feel depressed and I’m not here to invalidate myself, but I don’t have to dwell in that place I suppose. Everything is not terrible.
I have a lot of blessings in my life. Perhaps a better use of the new year is to inventory those and be thankful.
I am thankful for my family, without whom I would be lost.
I am thankful for my friends who make me laugh daily and provide me companionship and a listening ear and also an opportunity to listen.
I am thankful for my relatively decent health.
I am thankful for the roof over my head and the creature comforts I have.
I am thankful for access to medical and psychiatric care.
I am thankful for my providers, without whom I might find myself in huge trouble.
I am thankful for my freedom that I am given by virtue of the imperfect, but amazing place I live.
I’m thankful that I discovered blogging this year.
Last but not least…
I’m thankful for every person who reads my blog.
