    I got here from Dresden’s Get Connected Blog List and I’m quite grateful I found your blog already, because of this link to the 750words.com site. Over 10 years ago I used to do morning pages for a while and nowadays I think I should start with writing those again, but I never get around to do it. This site might just have been what I needed to get started again.
    All the best wishes to you and for your 2013. I hope it will be a good one for you. I don’t know all that much about mental health issues, but a friend of mine went through something similar a while ago. And I told her what I’m telling you: Admitting you need help and actually getting help for mental health problems is a very, very brave thing to do! Don’t let anyone and especially not your own self tell you otherwise *hugs*

      Thank you for the kind words – your friend is right! 750Words has been PRICELESS to me lately. I wish I had some extra cash to donate to them! I am currently on a 13 day streak of writing there so I hope to keep it up throughout the year. Getting the badges is addicting! Thanks for commenting 🙂

    “2012, you sucked. I am totally ready to move on to tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.” Yes to this, and yes to being brave and more mindful. When I get most hit with depression is when I’m worrying about dumb things I did 10 years ago, or what’s going to happen a month from now. When I’m present and just dealing with what’s in front of me, I do much better. Doing things that make me feel brave is very energizing. I forget what a charge I get out of it, and choose to be safe instead of brave. Thank you for the reminder of the value in challenge myself to be brave. We’re not even talking bungee jumping, here. Just going to an event where I don’t know everyone is an act of bravery, for me.

    I’m bookmarking your blog. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I’ve always been told daily journaling is helpful, but in practice I found it to be just a vitriolic rant session. Instead, crafting stories on my blog seems to help a lot more. As I say, I dump the contents of my toxic brain onto the page… It helps. Good luck with 2013!

    Bye, bye 2012! Sorry it was such a sucky year. That’s a lot for one person to go through in 12 months!

    Thanks for mentioning the 750words.com site, I’m glad it is working out for you!
