Lovely Nature

16 10 2012

I have been struggling with depression since we closed our shop last January. It is something that I never experienced before. Yes I feel blue here and there. But it was never like this. The sadness brought me to my knees. I couldn’t get out of bed in days and would cried all the time. It felt so foreign to be in a constant state of hopelessness. I knew I needed help. Ever since then I have been in talk therapy every week. The act of sharing really helps. Also knowing that I am not alone is such a gift. I’m learning to enjoy the simple things in life again. Taking photos of my surrounding has been therapeutic. It gives me a creative outlet since I am not ready to jump back into design. There are days when I’m back in that rabbit hole. Although this time around I am more conscious of the warning signs. I am slowly crawling back out into the light.
