The little things tend to be overlooked, until they’re gone or you can’t do them.
The last several months I have been in a downward spiral into depression. No sleep, loss of appetite and no motivation to do the daily routines. Questioning my own existence.
My wife and I had a much needed talk over the weekend. We are living apart as she cares for her elderly parents in another state. It was more she talked and I listened (heard) and wanted to act. And that is where the change comes. Wanting to act!
I made the decision to act! I started with the small things. Like making my bed and washing dishes. So today I had a small victory!
Take the first step, then another. Yes it may take everything thing you have, but life is worth living. Just keep breathing.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
Matthew 11:28 AMPC
