Re-reading Sunshine Lou’s post Naked vibes are good vibes, I had a realization:
I still struggle with depression.
I read how Lou feels so fulfilled. So at peace with herself. I read how Lou is trying to do what I’m trying to do, too: Bring light and positivity into peoples’ lives. And I think to myself: Why can’t I be more like her?
I know I shouldn’t compare myself to others.
I know that everyone has their own path in life.
I know that everyone is on this earth for a purpose that is unique.
Lou made me realize that my life is missing something, though:
A “Look before leaping attitude” — the kind of attitude that says “I’m just going to go for it. I’m just going to do what I believe, with all of my soul, to be right.”
Lou made me realize that I’ve been like Fluttershy:
I’ve been content with dreaming: With just telling myself “One day I’ll do ___,” or “One day I’ll be ___.”
For one reason or another, I’ve been afraid to actually take the steps that will make the better life I imagine for myself a reality.
Well, no more.
I’m done with just dreaming.
I’m going to actually do what I can to make my dreams a reality.
Like clothes, I’m going to “take off” my feelings of depression, and wade into the mysterious, deep, and beautiful ocean called life
Thank you for all you are doing.
I always like reading your posts. It’s inspiring to see someone who is so full of life and so passionate about helping people be the best they can be.
I hope you don’t think of me as weird or anything. I don’t want to come across negatively to anyone. I’m trying to be the best I can be, and do what I can to help and encourage others to be the best they can be, too.
Note: My feelings of depression rearing their ugly head again, and getting ready for Christmas, is why I’ve been behind on my Celebrating Beauty posts.
