Ok, so I'm going to be real with you guys... Today, like many other days, I really struggled to get out of bed. Not because I feel like I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel to survive (although I do have those moments), I felt as though I didn't have motivation for my day. As I walked into my office I saw the familiar ray of light across my desk from outside the window, I breathed the fresh, crisp air of the morning and I began to think positively. I reminded myself that every morning is a new beginning and that every new day is a gift... as cheesy as it sounds.
I say this only because I know what it's like to not want to face the day, having battled depression for many years, I really do understand not having any desire to do anything at all with my life and trying to see the light in those dark moments can sometimes feel hopeless. I say this to you friends because I want you to know that I'm with you in this and that it will get easier.
