I was once asked what I wish I could do. When I thought about it, I said why wish, when I could plan it and then work the plan. So I will start my plan by sharing it with you. Something happy to look forward to.
Plan on biking through the countryside, go horseback riding and staying at a B&B.
I will enjoy breakfast from a hotel balcony overlooking a river in Venice, experience lunch in an outdoor cafe, dinner and the opera and everything else I have time and money for in the weeks I am there.
Once again, life is awesome and despite a bumpy, sad and short trip on the road to depression, I am okay mentally and physically since I put into operation the coping skills I am learning.
Staying healthy mentally and physically takes a plan and work. So devise a plan for mental health wellness before you need to activate the plan in a crisis.
From my toolkit today for depression, I got dressed in a light colored top, put on some jewelry, went to the store and watched a funny movie. Also looked at pictures of where I want to go. Did not speak on the phone with anyone but I did do some texting asking someone how they were feeling and responded that I was feeling was good (although at the time and for most of the early part of the day I was not). A different friend than the one I wrote about earlier today. That is not a real friend. Friends are there for you when you need them, not when it is convenient for them.
be good to you. Make a plan for wellness. Dream and make plans and plan your work to make your dream a reality.
