Feeling Gorgeous

While this isn’t a comment on how I feel visually, I do feel rather gorgeous today. I’m feeling positive, strong, vibrant, and best of all, happy.

Depression runs in my family, and while I haven’t ever gone in to be diagnosed, I am certainly susceptible to serious depressive moods. I am often very hard on myself, insulting myself, hating the way I look, comparing my actions to those who are more comfortable in their own skin – or at least better at faking it than I am.

But today, none of that is bothering me. At all. I’m not sure why, but I’m not going to question it deeply.

I’m just going to enjoy it. I’m going to list as many things as I’m grateful for now, in an attempt to capture the feeling for the next time I’m down.

I have a notebook for that now, by the way. I always list three things I’m grateful for every morning (almost every morning) in my bullet journal, but I decided the new notebook that found its way to my desk is destined to be a gratitude journal.

And doodles. I like doodling. 🙂
