Sorrow

Morning loves,

Yesterday I received some devastating news my good friend son passed away. He was going to be two this month. I wish I knew what to say. I’m usually the person that always has something to say but this morning my mind is coming up blank.

Have you guys experienced anything like this? If so what should I do? What should I say?

Advice is much needed. Thank You💜

Reach Out a Little More!

Depression

How I hate that word.

I hate what it does to people.

I hate how it makes you feel.

I suffer from depression. At one point in my life I couldn’t get out of bed. Couldn’t do the things I love to do.

Today a friend of mines sent me this message.

In my mind I was just checking up on that friend because I know someone close to him died and I lost a friend only three weeks ago so I know the place he’s in.

The purpose of this post is to encourage you to reach out a little more to those friends or family members who you know suffers from depression. My gesture meant a lot to him and yours can too.

Much 💜,

E

Medating

Morning Loves. Rise and shine!!!

Last Friday with my therapist she helped me mediate. Let me tell you it was so calming and relaxing. Now I have tried to mediate in the past but it did not work but with the help of my therapist it was amazing.

Everything was relaxed. The reason why I started to mediate was because I suffer from depression and I am really scared about taking medication. I come from a family of drug addicts and it scares me to get hooked on any type of drug. So I want to find more natural ways of helping with my depression rather than taking medications. Mediation is really good for the body and it helps me with my anxiety.

There are different ways to mediate. Do some research and find what works best for you. As for me. I don’t need music. The lights have to be dimmed down low. I have to guide myself into it with deep breaths starting wth my feet and working my way up to my head. This relaxes each part of my body.I also say breath in love and acceptance and breath out pain and anger. I stay in a relaxed state for about 5-10mins.

Give mediation a try. Relax your mind and body.

ps,

Buddha was asked what have you gained from mediation? 

He replied “Nothing! However let me tell you what I have lost. Anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.”
