I'm someone who has to constantly work to not let anxiety, which is always with me, bubbling below the surface, and depression, waiting to cloud my days when I least expect it, rule my days. So far this year I've felt better than I have in the past six months, which makes it easier to do the things that I know from experience help me stay positive - going for a run, working on a project, reading a book. I'm going to try to continue to stay on the up and up.
So if you are succumbing to being blue today consider this post a little virtual hug from me to you and this quote which I've always loved: "Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always."
