Monday Motivation #17: Not So Motivational

YES! It’s time for some Monday Motivation, where I talk about the challenges and goals I want to achieve this week (in preparation for world domination!). Also, puppies.

I don’t know how to start this post, because  – well I don’t even know how to say, so I’m just going to say it:

My depression is back at full strength.

I wish I didn’t have to write that, I wish it wasn’t true.

It didn’t have to be this way. I felt it was going the wrong way, and I reached out for help. Before everything had fallen apart, for the first time. And what happened? I get caught up in bureaucracy and long waiting lists.

I have no words for how bad this makes me feel.

That also means there’s no point in me setting goals, when right now I’m just trying to get through one day at a time, hoping I won’t have to wait too long to get help.

But I’m still writing and blogging because it’s the only thing that doesn’t make me feel completely overwhelmed or useless.

I know I’ll be able to work my way through this, I have before. It’s just very hard right now.

Things that’ll show up on the blog this week so get excited!

  • A post from the heart about doing what’s safe vs what you’re passionate about
  • A workout I’m super excited to share with you
  • My September blog traffic report

Things I posted a really long time ago that we’ve all happily forgotten about

Things that are too cute for this world

Because cute animals are the key to happiness and this way I can pretend I’m being productive when I spend hours looking at puppies“It’s for the blog!!!”

I mean look at…

… this dirty dog

… this weird tiger lollipop

… this spinning ball of fluff

What do you want to achieve this week? Let me know in the comments!
