This week has been an interesting one for my thankfulness journal. In the past few days it has seen the return of the bonus item. Usually I just write down three things I am grateful for each day, but lately I have been feeling so thankful and so blessed that I've had to squeeze in… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
This week has been a weird one for me. My moods have been all over the place, but mostly more down than up. But despite that, I've been trying hard to do things that are new to me or that push me out of my comfort zone - even just a little bit - and… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
Today, I feel like trash. I have a million things on my to do list, but it's already lunch time and I've gotten absolutely none of it done. And I know that won't change. So instead of suffering through to day, trying to force myself to do work when I really don't feel like it,… Continue reading Taking the Day Off
When you have depression, everything feels a bit dulled. It's different for everyone, but for me my emotions sometimes feel a little out of reach. Well, my positive emotions at least. It is so easy for me to feel sad, tired, upset or hopeless, but having any positive feelings at all takes a lot of… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: I Feel Okay
This past week has been really positive for me. Not only have some really fun things happened, but I've just generally been in a better mood and had a more positive outlook on life. Hopefully this is reflected in the highlights of my week that I'm choosing to share with you today. Don't forget to… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
When I went to check the mail yesterday, I got a really great surprise. Instead of bills and pizza coupons, I was greeted by the postman asking me to sign for this wonderful package from Mindfump! The reason I was sent this great gift is because I won the #personifyME challenge. This was a really… Continue reading Unboxing My Care Package!
I've been in the mental health game for a while now. On and off bouts of depression since I was twelve, combined with 18 months going on an eternity of the worst, most inescapable depression I've ever experienced makes me a self-proclaimed expert. This doesn't make me more qualified or knowledgeable than a mental health… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: No One is Listening
I have decided to start doing another regular series on my blog, which you may have guessed from the title, and from now on I am going to be sharing my monthly goals with you! I think this is not only a great way for you to get to know me better and to see… Continue reading July Goals!
This past week has been pretty tough for me - between saying goodbye to my boyfriend and some very challenging mental health moments, it's been hard to feel positive or optimistic about my life. Nevertheless, I have found three things each day that I can be thankful for, and here are the highlights for you.… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!
Specifically, mental illness is hard. Like, really hard. Why's that, I hear you ask. Because you're sick. But you're sick without any of the sick people benefits. No one is cooking me soup, I don't get any days off work, and worst of all, there's no one looking after me. If you have the flu… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Mental Health is Hard
Weekends always feel like they fly by so fast for me, and I know that this weekend in particular will feel just like that. Weekends are the time when I can focus on self care and catching up on things around the house that didn't get done during the week. I have a firm rule… Continue reading What I’m Doing This Weekend
On the weekend my boyfriend and I were watching American Gods (which is an alright tv show, by the way). There was a character on there who was upset a lot, not showing any emotion, feeling that everything was just a bit pointless. My boyfriend kept saying how annoying and unfair to other people she… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Losing Interest
