In a Funk?
|"Oh no! It's daylight again!"|
Target lady on SNL? She was in it. I never laughed so hard before over a movie. Watch this trailer even just for a chuckle. You know, we all can do the best we can and yet at times we'll still curl up into a ball of funkity-funk. I still research new ways on fighting off depression, and while other remedies work, some don't. So it's trial and error. The one thing that keeps me from jumping off a one story ledge is looking forward to something, like planning a vacation -- even if it's months away. The fact that you know a relaxing trip is ahead of you can make all the difference in the world sometimes. Without our little trips away (and it doesn't have to be costly), I don't know what I would do. It keeps me sane and refreshed so I can start off the year on a somewhat positive note. Even if you can only take a 'staycation' --- do something for yourself. Don't let anyone make you feel as though you don't deserve peace and happiness in your life. Those types of people are just miserable because they don't even allow peace for themselves. Misery loves company. Don't play into it. I try not to absorb people's negative energy and I just steer clear of them the best I can. Surround yourself with positive people - people who can make you laugh and make you feel good about yourself. If you're reading this right now and feel depressed, know that you're not alone. I battle with it every. single. day. Turn on your iPhone camera on reverse mode, smile and say, "I love and accept you" - and make sure no one's around freak.
