Blue Monday

1/16/2017

Did you know that today, in addition to being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, is known as Blue Monday? The third Monday in January is rumored to be the gloomiest day of the year because of the time of year and other factors. 

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."
