Blogging Outside In Beautiful Seattle

Good Morning, World!!! I am sitting outside on the patio of my apartment building as it is beautiful outside. I am blogging outside because it is beautiful and it something that is “out of the box” for me to do. Doing something “out of the box” was suggested by my therapist a few weeks ago.

After I am done blogging, I am going to be reading outside. I just want to soak up this beautiful weather while it last. I love reading outside when it is nice out.

Thank you for reading my blog It is appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!

Successfully, Working Through Struggles

Hello, World!!! I am struggling at the moment yet I am having a good day. I went to the park and did some art work. I did some coloring while I was at the park. It is a beautiful day here in Seattle which is why I decided to go to the park and color. I enjoyed myself. In fact I think I got a slight sunburn as I am a little pink.

After coming home I decided to do some painting. I am going to painting how this sunny weather is making me feel. I am feeling happy at the moment despite my struggles with PTSD.

Thank you for reading and Peace Out, World!!!

Combatting Boredom & Isolation

Good Morning, World!!! I am bored as I sit here in day treatment. So, I decided to blog. I know if I was at home I would be isolating and bored. Isolating is not a good thing when depression in acting up. Coming into day treatment to fight isolation is the best bet for me and my depression symptoms despite being bored.

Plus, I have art group this afternoon. I am looking forward to art group as always. For me art helps me express my emotions. Emotions that can be extremely intense for me. Intense emotions is why art is so great for me.

The weather in Seattle is beautiful today. It is suppose to get into the high sixties or low seventies. I hope it does get into the seventies as I love warmer weather. Warm weather is absolutely fabulous for me and my mood.

Thank you for reading. I hope everyone has a great Monday and work week. Peace Out, World!!!

A Relaxing Sunday

Good Evening, World!!! It is a beautiful day in Seattle. I have had a pretty good day despite dealing with depression. As stated in a previous post, I went to the park and read. I enjoyed myself and the weather.

Now that I am home, I will continue to read. Reading appears to be helping me a great deal as of lately. Reading is also something I enjoy immensely. For me it helps fight off depression when I am able to concentrate and thankfully, I am able to do so.

Something else that I will be doing now that I am home as well is listen to a podcast or two. Specifically, one on philosophy. I am enjoying the podcast a great deal and learning lots of awesome stuff I didn’t know before.

Everything I am doing today is helping me with my recovery. Working on my recovery is something that means the world to me. If it weren’t for my recovery I would not be blogging.

Thank you for reading and Peace Out, World!!!

Sunny in Seattle Does the Depression Good

Good Afternoon, World!!! At this moment in time I have laundry in the washer. I realized that it needed to be done. For me I rather get the chores out of the way so I can enjoy the rest of the day.

Despite having laundry in the washer I have enjoyed the sunny weather already by taking a nice two mile walk. A walk that did me good with the exercise and the sun. The sunny weather is quite helpful to fighting off depression or at least for me it helps.

After my laundry is done, I plan on taking another walk. This time to a park. I’ll take a book with me to the park to read in the nice sunny weather. There is something cool about reading in a park on a nice sunny day. Too bad its not warm to go to the lake and read. It would be a little chilly for me. I do know it will warm up this week to be able to do that.

I got to go and check on my laundry and put it into the dryer. Have a good Sunday. Thank you so much for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Thursday Evening Ramblings

Good Evening, World!!! Today, has been a relatively good day despite dealing with anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression that hasn’t been as bad as it has in recent days and weeks. I owe that to the sunny weather here in Seattle. Sunny weather always helps with the symptoms of my mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.

Art also has helped with my anxiety and depression lifting. For example creating my coping skills box was an awesome art project for me. Having a specific art project to focus appears to be of help to me even though doing any art is helpful.

Something I think I am going to do after blogging is reading. As I have mentioned before I enjoy reading. Reading has been helpful for me as well to reduce the symptoms of my depression and anxiety.

Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!
