The problem with depression is it's way too easy to focus on what's close, while everything else just seems—distant.
It takes a concerted effort to widen the view beyond the bleak of now, choosing to look ahead with a clear vision of better. And it does mean making a choice.
Sleeping more (or less if it takes up too much of your 24).
Eating whole foods instead of indulging in the comfort of sugar, fat, and all those things which do nothing to kick your body into a healthier state of being.
Finding a way to breathe the fresh air, move, engage.
Letting go of the "whatever" (even if it's an indefinable nothing) to God.
And doing something which puts a wide angle view on the newness which comes with the morning.
"You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!" Psalm 30:11-12 (NLT)
