Today is OK, I have a balanced life.
Not grand, or super, but OK certainly. And I am enjoying that. I keep reminding myself that my goal is a balanced life with depression.
Today, everything seems in balance. I got in around 1 AM from work. Decompressing rather quickly, I was in bed by 1:30 AM.
I didn’t stress about sleeping in until 9 AM.
After a few late nights, I need that time to rest. So, at 7:00 Am, I had rolled over and stayed in bed a little longer. And this was no big deal. It didn’t cause me to think I was slipping into the abyss or circling the drain. It was my body needing more rest this morning.
I must be ready to leave for my day job by 12:30 PM today.
There is my vegetable garden to weed and plants to water. My plan is to get out in the yard for a while before getting ready for work. Forgive me for not spending more time writing this morning, but with things in balance, I must move on to some self-care.
And being outside, enjoying the sun and our property, is some of the best self-care I know.
My concealed depression is written under the alias “Depression is not my boss.” I have certifications in SMART Recovery and am a Global Career Development Facilitator.
Diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder last year, I am sharing what I learn. If you know someone who might benefit from reading this, please share.
I very much appreciate your comments.
