Lacking?…create it!

I was just talking to somebody about this earlier and it triggered a blog post. Depression can be an interesting thing (let me point out the obvious -I clearly understand and know there are levels of depression-just speaking from my own experience)


It seems that when we are sad or down or depressed we always find it easier to find more sad things to be depressed about.


In our conversation this person said:


 “Sometimes I get crying over sad things. There’s a lot of it when you look for it. Almost have to not think about it”


I responded: 


“Exactly…. There’s a lot when u look for it AND it always seems easier to find the sad over the good. It’s when one can pull out if the sad and find more good to overtake the sad that we grow.”


It isn’t easy ESPECIALLY if ones already ‘engulfed’ in it. I understand that, but for my own recent experience, practicing this little practice before letting myself get to that point has been a positive thing! 


When we can pull ourselves out of those sad obsessive moment and think of some good moments, of positive moments, it’s those thoughts — the happiness we create that helps overpower that sad depression. 


My goal and my wish for those who can relate to what I’m saying is to force yourself to think of 5 to 10 positive motivational, inspiring, blessed things about your life to override the sad depressed negative overbearing thoughts. To CREATE the sun in the gloom. To create the happiness being overpowered!!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
