Today was a fantastic day: I went back to Weight Watchers for the first time in 11 weeks. And? I lost a half pound since I was last there.
Went through the entire holiday season and LOST A HALF POUND! Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! So as a reward, I went to get my gray hairs disguised to look like the rest of my brown hairs. I have a really great hair stylist. Not only is she talented with color and scissors, she and I share some really heartfelt chats.
We are close in age, we have both seen our share of bad and good times. Today we got on the subject of depression and anxiety, and I shared with her that I have learned that depression is debilitating and potentially deadly because depression LIES to you, skews reality and makes your soul feel like it’s wearing a wet wool blanket of burden.
And together, we decided depression should be treated just like you would treat a nasty cold, and together we came to the revelation that DEPRESSION IS LIKE MUCUS OF THE MIND. It clogs up the natural flow in our brains and makes it hard to breathe.
And then I shared with her a sentiment that I would have tattooed across my heart if that was possible. She loved it. I will repeat this to myself whenever depression comes whispering it’s dirty lies and starts clogging up my brain.
I added it to this photo I took last fall:
