If you are reading this, you made it through the holidays.  That is awesome!!!  It is a very difficult time of year.  Stress increases, depression increases, and so does the rate of suicides.  BUT YOU MADE IT!!!

Give yourself a pat on the back.  Don’t worry about New Year’s Resolutions, you just accomplished one.  Every day you push back the darkness and conquer those “thoughts”, you are a winner.

Holidays are not easy for me either.  However, I believe this was my best year yet.  This year I have decided to take a closer look at Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  It would take me forever to explain it.  I am learning new skills to battle my “bad” recordings and replace them with positive ones.  It is complicated and time-consuming.  It is working on that “in the moment” stuff.  It teaches you to rewire your brain when you are faced with difficult situations.  I have read about it and even tried it before, however, it didn’t really hit me as the thing to do at that moment in my life.

Now, I want to attempt it.  It is different than normal therapy.  You take a more proactive role in improving yourself as a mom, dad, spouse, friend, co-worker, etc.  I will keep you posted…in the meantime, take care of yourself and those around you.
