Well, it's New Years Eve and I am sick as a dog once again. I wonder where that saying comes from,..
I was just sitting here thinking about life I guess.
I think everyone has a dry period... you know, a period in time where things are rough more times than they are not.
Lord knows I've had my share of dry periods.
During these times, it can be hard to see the good. We get stuck in our own grief, and that is okay...just as long as you climb out of the holes life often throws you in, not just give up.
This year my platelets and hemoglobin have been all over the place. I have been sick more than I have been healthy and my insurance has been cut off not once, but twice.
Yes, things have been crazy, but that's life. Bad things happen, but so do good things. I am so thankful for all the good things and people in my life. That is what truly matters. That is how you climb out of your hole...by making the good things count for more than the bad.
I have this friend, she was in a mentally abusive relationship. They are no longer together. She has been seeing a therapist to help her. After her diagnosis of depression, she refused to look at anything in a positive light. I tried talking to her about remaining positive, things will get better...she just got angry with me and went on to grieving her loses instead of counting her wins. She has family, friends, mended the relationship with her sister, a nice house, pets, etc. Still, none of this matters to her. For this, I feel sorry for her.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, this year count your blessings. Think about the good things more than you think about the bad. And God Bless!
Happy New Years everyone!
