Feeling grateful while experiencing depression is tough, no kidding!
Finding things to be grateful for, while your life seems to be pointless and every cell in your body vibrates with either pain, fatigue or both, does not seem a natural or even a reasonable thing to do.

There is something good in your life right now, at this very moment.
It is probably hard for you to see it, let alone to name what exactly is good.

Take a deep breath and listen to your body…
Life runs in you! Life runs through you! You are life! You are precious, wonderful, sacred life!
Yes, you have Depression standing next to you. She is holding you by your shoulders, but she is not your enemy. Continue Reading »
