For my entire life, I wrestled with depression. I feared it, yes, you could say even hated it. I use the “hate” word very infrequently, yet in this case, it suffices to say, that is exactly how I felt.
A day dawned where I clearly “saw” how I was at war with depression. With my anger and hatred and fear, what I was actually doing (in retrospect) was attracting more of the very thing I detested and feared …. depression. Unconsciously, (unaware of) I was signaling to the Universe that with the attitude I was presenting, I wanted (indicating lack) to create more depression. From there I received an unfriendly dump back into the boiling depression pot.
In resisting something, that very something persists and plagues. Like energy attracts like energy. Thus, fear = fear. Anything born outside of the Realm of Love, is fear.
The day I no longer feared depression, changed my life forever. The fight with depression ceased. I accepted it and not only that, befriended it. Without hesitation, I consistently (without letup) showed the Universe I truly meant to change my life forged with new words, new thoughts, and new actions. (not easy!) You cannot cheat and pretend when it comes to something like this. Energy is energy and energy does not lie.
Since that Momentous Day, a Real Peace, a Joy, and a return or so it seems to my childlike glee, have been Gifted to me. What had followed me from my childhood no longer put quaking fear within my Heart. I found the courage to not only first see the Truth for what is was but then to move ahead to change that which was detrimental to my very Being.
As you can very well see in my gallery below, I really am having the time of my life out in the snow. That is not all either. Every single aspect of my life has been effected by this huge change, especially in areas of my life where struggle has been very evident. It seems as if by letting go of depression, I’ve welcomed a Spirit of Ease into my life. BIG SMILE!
