I created a custom shirt, bought it, then had someone else create the same thing, except a little different, and bought that. I also bought myself 2 decks of cards - both inspirational-type. Yes, I splurged. This is my Christmas gift to myself. 🙂
I'll be very happy with it.
My mom bought me an Elephant. Not a real one, but a big fuzzy one. He won't replace Munk Monkey. Munk Monkey will stay on my bed too. I just got a new friend for Munk. And for me too. Toys have always been good for my mental health. I need to give Elephant a name. He can't just be Elephant. I gotta get him a good name.
Depression today is coming and going. I'll be okay for a while, then I'll think about what I'm going to do next, then get the feeling that gave the voice "what's there to be happy about?". I know there are many many things to be happy about. I know I need to be more thankful, especially in fighting the feeling/voice of depression. I think that the Gratitude Attitude can possibly defeat that depression - eventually. I must keep at it though.
What's there to be happy about?
I woke up this morning.
I was breathing this morning.
I can walk.
We have a roof over our heads.
We have food and drink.
We have blankets and pillows, and our own beds.
I have video games, a tv, coloring books, toys, snacks, books, movies, my own room, a closet with clothes.
We can pay our bills.
And lots of other things. That's what to be happy about. That's what to be thankful for.
