― Robert Frost
Everyday seemed to last an eternity and seemingly impossible to get through.
It felt as if I had a blanket of depression draped over me while I struggled through hour after hour of what felt like a meaningless existence. When the morning entered my room each day, my mind was flooded with the sickening realization I had to find a way to get through another torturous day. Another day Where I needed help eating, getting dressed, even using the bathroom!
Humbling to say the least.
I felt weak, incapable, broken, and worthless. If I were to go away, I would remove a burden from my family. That’s where my mind took me.
I felt doomed and with the progressive nature of my disease, my future looked bleak. I couldn’t see a path where I could regain my life.
In other words, how you perceive your life and your future dictates your destination.
Your attitude drastically influences what actions you will to take to improve your future.
Find a reason to keep going, even if you can't see how it makes sense at the moment.
Find a person that needs you, the most cherished person in your life. Hold on and don't let go. Mine was my wife. She provides for my every need and I in turn am there to be an ear, a cheerleader, a best friend for her.
Recently it was pointed out that each day is ripe with opportunities to make heaven out of hell or vice versa.
Said differently, we have to control our minds every single day. We cannot let our minds rule, at least I can’t let my mind rule, because it will drive me off a cliff!
(Just being honest)
I was in a tough spot, fighting depression, but I was there for a reason just as you are in your current place for a reason.
God does have a plan for you and me. He has a plan for friends too! Our friends have been a blessing to our family with meals! These meals relieve Laura and have helped tremendously. A friend setup a calendar for meals if you would like to help Laura with meals, goto:
Thanks for all the love you are showing, which afterall, is the point!
