“It has been 11 years since my “rock bottom”, and life is so good. What I realized then and now is.....You never know when you will experience the BEST day of your life! It could be around the next corner. If you give up, you’ll miss that. As a teenager, I couldn’t see past the next day. I couldn’t imagine what my adult years might bring. Marriage....children....career or just the next beautiful sunrise. There is so much beauty in nature alone. If you’ve stopped believing in miracles, just watch the sun, or the clouds or take a close look at the inside of a flower or the uniqueness of a snowflake. Nature, alone, has so many lessons and stories to share.
Depression is so hard and it will hold you down. But, what’s stronger than depression is HOPE. The future has something amazing for every single one of us. Yes, there will still be heartache. Yes, there will still be days when you feel sad, mad, defeated or just plain exhausted. But, all you have to do is take the next step–no matter how big or small. Just keep
breathing and just keep moving forward. One more step, one more breath. Just one at a time. And never forget....the best day of your life may be (and most likely IS) just around the next corner.
I don’t care who you are or what your story is......you can always reach out to me. Sometimes talking is just too exhausting and painful when you are in the middle of depression–You don’t have to talk at that moment. Just say or send a message saying “keep me safe” and we will sit together (physically or on the phone) for a time–no words needed. And then, when you are ready, I’ll help you take a step....just one or 100....but we can move forward TOGETHER.
Today, I know that I am worth the FIGHT and so are YOU!”
