Struggles and Successes

There was no blog post yesterday. I was struggling with an unexpected bout of depression.

Today has been better, although I know I’m not completely out of the woods. I’m in this weird place where I’m over the moon to be a dad and I love spending time with Ann and Sage… but everywhere else is not going right.

And as much as I tell myself that there’s no such thing as going “right,” that there’s no reason I should expect the universe to conform to my will and desires, it’s still stressful at times.

Today, when I found myself starting to slip in that direction, I was able to focus on Ann and on Sage.

It didn’t completely “cure” the depression symptoms, but it significantly alleviated them.

Here’s to daily victories.
