Just looking back, I see that my last blog was on depression, and there have been no more blogs since then. For those of you who follow me regularly, I hope you didn’t get worried that I was more depressed than I had let on, because that is not the case.
It’s true that I am still working through a mild form of my own depression, but it has not debilitated me in any way. I have been working with my mantras to get me through my own depression. I have been decreasing my stress and busy schedule. I have let go of activities that were feeling more burdensome than enlightening, like blogging, for the time being.
But the best way to work through depression, when you are in it, is to do the things you love to do. Surround yourself with fun activities, fun people, and be in a fun environment, as much as possible. Sometimes the change has to start from the outside.
This past weekend was my annual teacher girlfriend weekend in Whalen, near Lanesboro. That weekend is ALWAYS so good for my Soul! We laugh, tell stories, make new memories, and just generally have a great time. We support each other during our difficult times and listen to each other in a way that we don’t always feel other hear us.
Girflriend time is good for the Soul! In just 19 days, another group of women will be going to Colorado with me for a yoga retreat. That will be another “good for the Soul” weekend of support for all of us.
What good things are you doing for your Soul this week?
