Stepping out of my shadow

I have something in mind which i would like to happen, but because it is a really a big step forward that i am taking, i am giving it more thought.

Simply said, i would like to be able to talk about depression the way i talk about my rheumatoid arthritis(RA). There is nothing to hide, and there is nothing to be ashamed about. Like RA, if anything, it teaches me invaluable lessons that make me a better and stronger person.

Having depression is NOT a misfortune. After over a year of treatment and finding a gift in everything, i find it a privilege.

Dear God,
Thank you for your endless grace and bountiful blessings.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change, the courage to change the things i can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Patience for the things that take time, appreciation for all that we have, and tolerance for those with different struggles.
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the ability to feel Your love for us and our love for each other, and the strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

C’mon stef!!! You can do this!!!
