No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. The best cure for depression is action. It doesn’t matter so much what you do as long as you do something. Go outside. Go anywhere. Play with a pet if you have one. Hold them, squeeze them, give them some love and you’d be amazed how much it uplifts your soul. Interact with people. Smile at strangers, for when you see their face light up by your silent greeting, it will ignite something inside of you and you’ll begin to feel better too. Compliment another person and see how good it makes you feel to make them feel good.
Life gets clouded with all of the big things…careers, money, family, stress…but it’s the little things that matter most. The little things are truly what can make or break you in a moment.
Life is a gift that we get to unwrap every day. As we open our eyes each morning, a new day awaits us and we can make it anything we want it to be. We don't have to let depression conquer us. We don't have to allow sadness or loneliness to steal our joy. We can fight it. I'm not saying it's easy, but it's a battle worth the energy to fight. So, don’t wait to make life special… today is special. Wear that favorite outfit. Burn those candles you’ve been saving. Eat from the good china. Pull out the sexiest lingerie you own. Open the expensive bottle of wine. Don’t lie around hoping for a special occasion…create that special time now. We live once. Make it wonderful! ~
