Service – The Key to Your Happiness

There is a lethargy, a true draining of vital life energy that prevents people with Depression from doing what they have to do for themselves. When I am in the pit of depression I sometimes feel like I can’t go downstairs and get something to eat. Often times I don’t and I go hungry. I can’t pick out my clothes. It’s just too hard. So I ware what I wore yesterday that I threw on the floor next to my bed. Sometimes I think that if the house caught fire I wouldn’t have the strength to get out. That’s how brutal Depression can be. It’s not living. It’s just existing. That’s not how life has to be.

I have found moments of strength when someone else was in need. In certain emergencies I’d rise to the occasion and crash after it did what needed to be done. In my sadness and longing to die I have counseled others back from the brink, and they had no idea how much pain I was in because I did not let them know. I was there for them and that gave me some sense of worth. Sometimes it even made me happy. The following video illustrates the power of service, the power of helping others even when you can’t help yourself. If you keep on doing it, little by little you will come alive again.


“Who You Are”

You are beautiful, you are smart, you are funny, you are kind, your unique

You are worthy of LOVE and AFFECTION, you are never too much and you are always enough

you are precious, you are a Diamond a Rose a Pearl, the most stunning of all God‘s Creations

YOU are worth more than you can ever imagine

your worth more than the numbers on a scale or the hair product you use or the shoes you wear

more than how many girls wish they were you or how many guys wish they had you

more than the price tags on your clothes or the percentage on the top of your math test

or even the number of followers you have on Twitter

Your Worth surpasses ALL EARTHLY THINGS because in the eyes of the Lord God, you are LOVED

You are Worth dying for, regardless of Who YOU think You are

whether you model in a magazine or you model pottery with grandma

whether your on the Hot list or the Not list, whether your head cheerleader or a high school drop out

whether your miss popular or you never had ANYONE you can call a FRIEND

whether you love yourself or love your life or you cant stand to look in the mirror

and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart

whether your such a winner or you feel like the worlds biggest failure

regardless of who you think you are the reality is You Deserve Someone who will give up their LIFE for you

because YOU are POWERFUL and STRONG and CAPABLE

Read about the WOMEN in the BIBLE, ESTHER, RUTH, MARTHA, MARY

these women Changed the world FOREVER

and inside of you EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU is a women with that same POWER

and that same STRENGTH and that SAME WORLD CHANGING CAPABILITY

and your responsibility is to find that women and SET THAT WOMEN FREE

This is WHO YOU ARE

and any voices in your mind try to tell you differently are from the ENEMY

and the next time you hear that voice you say NOT ME SATAN I am the Daughter of the LIVING GOD

CHERISHED, LOVED AND ADORED ABOVE ALL THINGS BY THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS

FOR THE GLORY OF ALL THINGS

I AM AWESOME

PLEASE DON’T YOU FORGET IT

When I Have a Bad Day

I did not know whether to call this “When I Have a Bad Day” or “When You Have a Bad Day”, but the title I chose to use  tells you something.  If you are where I was then you may feel that every day is a bad day.  Indeed, for many years of my life, just about every day was a bad day.  But now the title is “When I Have a Bad Day”, which infers that I must be having good days and it does.  I have gone from “bad life” to “better life”.  I have gone from “bad life” to “bad days”.  I prayed to God for an end to my pain and suffering and I was answered.  I am grateful for God’s answer to my plea.  But I want more good days and I expect more good days.

Today was not a good day.  Despite major improvements in my biochemistry and spiritual well-being, I am still in a life of strife.  And strife seems to stick to me like flies to flypaper.  Life has not been kind to me.  I am immensely grateful for health and well-being of my wife and children.  There are many millions of people out there who are living through so much poverty, violence, and physical diseases that I am sparred from enduring.  But I still have situations that are not wrapped up.  I still have a lot to improve upon in my life.  I am still under duress mostly due to external factors as opposed to constant depression.  But I do get depressed on bad days.  And that depression seems to run straight toward the worst mental place to go.  Luckily, it abates.  Yours will abate too.

I do not dwell upon the notion of future bad days, but I do expect to have them, like all people do.  But because I have Depression I have to take proactive action.  I have to be prepared for bad days so I can try to prevent them from becoming torturous days. And I can’t always avoid that either.  In Recovery International one of the spottings says “Expect frustration and disappointment every minute of the day and you won’t be disappointed.”  Another one is: “I have the ability to withstand torture.”  It’s true!  We all do.  Read Man’s Search for Meaning and you will see. It’s not a feel good book.  I will go into Victor Frankl‘s Logotherapy in another post on a better day.  There is much to be learned from it.

In the meantime take a look at this video:


Inspirational Video – P&G Olympic Sponsor Commercial

I just saw this video (P&G Olympic Sponsor Spot) that I found very inspiring and very comforting.  So I had to jump out of bed to post it.

When we were children we took a lot of hard knocks, but we didn’t see it that way.  We never felt that the world was against us way back then when we were around age 5 or less.  We never said to ourselves, “Why is this happening to me?  Why am I falling down?  Why am I getting hurt?”  It was just part of the process.  It was part of the fun.  It was just part of the game.  Life was the game.  And life still is the game.  We’ve just forgotten that it’s a game.

The falls, the bruises, the injuries, the “failures” – none of that bothered us.  We didn’t care what anyone else thought of us.  We were just living – really living!

Right now, let`s remind ourselves that the child within each of us still lives and still wants to play!  “We take our own dear selves too seriously” (RI)  Let’s get back in the game!
