Step One

Lately I’ve been struggling with depression. That’s on top of my regular daily panic disorder. Needless to say, it’s been a challenge. I’ve lost interest in pretty much everything, and spend my time mindlessly scrolling through my phone. Which only brings in feelings of guilt. Which brings more anxiety. If you struggle with your mental health, I’m sure this kind of spiraling is familiar to you. And for that, I’m sorry.

Part of the reason I decided to start this new blog is that it will give me something to focus on – something productive and (hopefully) enjoyable. Little projects and lists to check off might just help me to break through this omnipresent fog that’s settled around me.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

I’m starting with a small list of goals for the coming week. Small in length but looking at it fills me with dread. But I’ll try my best to get through it. Wish me luck!

If you’re struggling too, I invite you to join me in challenging yourself to write a list for your coming week.
