Shaking Off the Depression!

Along with the theme of wanting to shake it, I danced to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off today.

It’s a new year and I want to shake off my depression, frustration and general blahs. There’s a lot of emotional stuff going on for me right now. I have been feeling myself sinking into a kind of quiet, brooding depression punctuated by crazy anger bursts.

When I get really low, it’s hard to believe I’ll ever feel better, ever be NOT depressed.

I have to grasp at any brief moments of fresh air and when I feel them, saturate my entire self with the good vibes.

I was thinking I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, whatever that means, but I think I need to jump on this band wagon.

Nothing complicated. Nothing elaborate.

I want to keep doing yoga and keep dancing as often as I can without those activities becoming weighed down with the burden of keeping me undepressed.

I want to every day pause in the morning, if only for five minutes, and fill myself with positive thoughts. Even if I’m in a depression, I want to be required to spend five measly minutes reflecting on the positive and feeling an attitude of gratitude.

There you go.

I think I just made a resolution I can (hopefully) keep.
