With all the talk about depression lately, I think I’ll make this a month of counting my blessings during November for #NaBloPoMo. I’ll be telling you all about the good things going on in my life and I’ll be looking to you all to share the same with me. I could use the dose of gratitude and positivity and you can learn more about me! #CrazyThankful
November 1, 2015
For the past few months, I’ve been blogging about depression and being a real downer. I’ve been a little down in the dumps and taking it out on all of you. I’ve been feeling blue, crying more, and I’ve been a bear to live with at home. Howard and I had our first real fight last week and I’m still not sure if we’ve fully recovered from it. Overall, I’ve allowed depression to take over my life.
I’m no longer allowing that!
This month, I’ve given myself the challenge to blog every day (prompt or no prompt, sponsored or not sponsored) for BlogHer’s #NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month – November) and I’m going to be counting my blessings every day this month. It’s going to be a real challenge for me to actually get something written every day (I do work two jobs outside of blogging) but I’m going to do the best I can. I’m going to show you all and myself that I know what my blessings are and maybe I’ll even feel a little better after it all.
Last year, during November, I counted my blessings on Facebook and it went really well. This year I’m going to have to think ahead a little and not be so spontaneous in counting my blessings because I’ll be publishing a post on my blog every day and that requires a little more thought.
Follow along this month while I am counting my blessings by following my hashtag – #CrazyThankful
I almost forgot to count today’s blessing! Today, I am thankful for an extra hour of sleep that allowed me to stay up late and write this post so it’s ready to kick-off November! I love Daylight Savings Time!
Day Two – Thankful for Grace Bible Church
Day Three – Thankful for my husband
Day Four – Thankful for my son
Day Five – Thankful for marrying a chef
Have a great day!
