Depression hits hard. I used to struggle to get out of bed every morning. But then my therapist suggested that I buy things just for me, for the sole reason of making myself happy, and I think it’s really working!
A few days ago, I bought myself a bunch of inspirational mugs. For example, one of them says a lot of pick-me-ups all at once: “Have Hope Be Strong Live Laugh Love Loud Dream Big Be Happy.” Now I don’t know where to start reading, but MAN, that mug gets me super pumped up for my day!
The mug I’m holding right now is my current favorite. It says “Morning Gorgeous,” so I only use it in the AM. Before I got this mug, I felt ugly all the time. But now, all I have to do is listen to my mug, which says I’m gorgeous (and also tells me it’s the morning)! It’s so nice to finally feel gorgeous, even if it’s only in the mornings.
I can’t stop shopping for mugs. The one I have in my Amazon cart right now says “LOVE is my religion.” Um, more like MUGS are my religion! Yes, please!
