Word of the Week - 22nd August 2014

It is Word of the Week time.

What word would sum up my week?

I'm afraid that to say I have struggled to find a positive word this week. But in the end I have chosen a word which is positive, I think, that word is...


Why have I chosen determination?

Well, this week has seen me go down again. But it has also brought out a new determination. I am determined that this will not beat me down. I am determined to get over it. Determined to me again.

I have started by getting a brand new hair cut! I have had a lot chopped off and have added a fringe. Next week we are on holiday and I have booked in a couple of spa treatments to help pick me up. I am determined to use this holiday to leave everything behind me and just spend quality time with my family. I am even leaving my blog at home! I am pleased to say that I have got my posts scheduled so that it'll keep ticking over while we are away. I am leaving the laptop behind but I have bought a lovely new note book and stationary and plan to write the good old fashioned way!

I am finding that there is no quick fix to depression. I am finding that it is a roller coaster ride of recovery. I had thought that I was better but after this week I am realising that it is going to take time but I am confident that with my new found determination I will get out of the darkness. I am focusing on my reasons to smile, my hubby, my children, my family and even my little blog.

  9. Such a brave post. I think there is real misconception that you move on a little from depression and then everything is fine. I find I am still working all this out a good 8 years after the worst of depression passed. Keep on keeping on and I admire you for taking time out to look after you
