On The Upswing?

How's my mental health today?

I feel pretty good this morning.

That might be because 2 of my brothers are coming over for coffee this morning and I need to get a few things done before they get here. Or it might be because I also had to do some problem solving (scheming). Or it may be that I'm slowly rising out of the depression. Or a combination of the above.

My biggest challenge is finding the balance between doing too much and not doing enough. If I do to much too soon, I risk exhausting myself and setting back my recovery. If I don't do enough I risk sliding into lethargy which doesn't help my recovery.

You'd think after 22+ years of dealing with this stuff I would have the balance thing figured out, but the balance point shifts from day to day. Self awareness is critical. Determination plays a large role. Hope for a better future is an absolute necessity. My faith that God has a purpose for me is a life saver.

And so I keep searching for balance and recovery - one day at a time.


Christ has given me my entry fee.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6
