When you have clinical depression, seeing the good doesn’t come naturally. It’s not like you’re trying to see the bad things, but your brain is just prone to go there. That’s why #IChooseBeauty has worked so well for me: it’s brain training to see the good even when there’s bad. It gets you in the habit of noticing the beauty in life when it’s not always obvious (like how pretty these raindrops are despite the fact that it’s a gray and gloomy day).
If you want to try #IChooseBeauty for yourself (with a little guidance), I have a challenge that starts in two weeks. It’s all part of a few things I have planned to bring you joy in May which is Mental Health Awareness Month.
I’ll be sharing more this month about my journey through depression to happiness and what continues to help me every day. I hope that what I’ve gone through and what I’ve learned from it can help you in some way. Details coming soon! ️#MondayMotivation #IChooseBeauty
