"Healing is an energy phenomenon. Hope is another word for Healing. "Cracks in the concrete are just reminders that you fall apart no matter how strong you are""Sometimes it is best to forget what you feel and remember what you deserve""Im going to smile like nothing is wrong, talk like everything is perfect, act like its all a dream, and pretend its not hurting me."
I live in the snow belt so if the sun is shining in my bedroom window, I will lay on my bed and let the sun do the healing. I just relax and let go of all the sad thoughts and just rest.
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....................
What a great post. I've had an episode of depression the last few weeks. But I am a huge believer in definitely doing something when we get so low. It's hard b/c the depression gets a hold of us and even thinking of "doing" anything is too much. But even trying some of these things, although it may not lift the depression completely right away, I find that it will bring relief, even if only for awhile.
I like to clean too; that really helps get my mind off of it all. I'm not creative, but I know that works for a lot of people. I do try to get outside with the dog. I call distress or crisis--just to hear a voice that understands, and to talk about what I'm going through. That is almost always helpful for me. Posting on HW really helps me too. Having a bath is good; the essential oils really help. Sunshine is very good.
Comfort from loved ones helps; but a lot of the time that is hard to come by....
Just trying to do all these things we're mentioning here on this topic. This weekend, I've been focusing on relaxing, and that does feel good. Relaxing is something I'm not normally good at either, but I'm really worn out after this past week, so it seems to be working for me
Many hugs to you & my HW family.
I actually kicked back and watched a movie. I was totally lost in it. It was entertaining. Sometimes that is a hard thing to do when you think or worry too much and it feels good just to let everything go and relax. So I guess we both succeeded at relaxing this weekend.
