One key to surviving depression is gratitude.
Every day I write about what I am grateful for,
even if it is just a line during the day in my journal.
The more depressed I am the more I do gratitude if I want to move away from the dark matter
looming in the corners of my vision, waiting to slip into my consciousness.
I record joyful moments.
But daily I write and draw gratitude.
This morning I am grateful for sleeping in late again.
I am grateful for Mitchell doing “Tiger Cat” with Izzee on the bed,
and that he loves her more than a perfectly made bed..
I am grateful that we get to have the cats with us while we work.
I am grateful that the crows and pigeons love my feeding them,
and that we have good food to eat.
I am grateful for making marks, and sharing them with you all.
I am grateful that Mitchell gets as much joy from the huge cat forts I build to amuse them,
even though we have to walk around them all day long (image coming)!
I am grateful that he cleans up the vomit!
Most of all I am grateful for Mitchell loving me, and for loving him.
