Sometimes I forget to be grateful for all I have in my life. I saw this image today and it was a sweet reminder to see the world around me with more gratitude. I am very blessed. I have healthy children, a roof over my head, clean water and food in my belly.
Even with bipolar, I still have miraculous beauty in each day when I can access it. Some days when I can't get out of bed or can't breathe due to the anxiety, it is hard to remember or find a ray of light.When I am depressed I often feel like a huge burden to my family. Much of the bad that happens to us is because of the choices I make. That is difficult to swallow. The "if only's" weigh you down.
Can't go backwards, so you have to try to move forward.
Where do you want to be this time next year? I want to be comfortable and stable again. Less worries, more peace. I want my meds to be working and for my head to be in a space where I can see more wonderful in the world.
