Want To Stop Feeling Depressed?

It is a gray and rainy day on the Big Island of Hawaii.

I started the day with a conversation with a depressed (and depressing) friend.

It really set the mood for the morning.  My friends dark energy just seemed to cling to me.

When I took my daughter to the bus, the cold wind and pounding rain seemed to match my mood.

Last week when we were traveling down our road on the way to the school bus stop, my daughter was awe struck by the beautiful view, and grabbed the camera to take a picture through the wind shield, which was over due for a cleaning.

I was so surprised when I got home and took a look at the picture.

Through that dirty window, she had captured the awesome beauty of the morning.

I chuckled, and thought, “wow, awesome beauty shines so brightly, ya don’t notice how murky your field of vision is.”

It reminded me of life.  No matter how stuck in the mud you are, just keep your eye on awesome, and you will be transformed.


Today, just the memory of that beautiful morning shines a light on my dark mood.

I am blessed.

You don’t have to be depressed.

Reach out to friends and family with the intention of uplifting spirits and you’ll find that is exactly what you’ll do!
