Looking Upward and Onward
Monday, December 25, 2017
This year has been a year of loss (but not weight!) for me, and I fell into a bit of depression. By nature I am an optimistic person and I hope to utilize this strength to have a good 2018. There have been days when I felt I was on the losing end of everything and I have felt that I am sliding downward in my life. It has been hard to talk to anyone about this. I am constantly working to see positives, such as I am not a person to self-medicate, mope around, or go on drinking or shopping binges. I have tried to channel my sadness into volunteering and trying to join others with concerns similar to mine. I will remain deeply committed to wildlife preservation and the environment for the rest of my life, despite having had to experience horrible losses this past year.
