50 Things That Make Me Happy


Let me be honest, this post is going to be too personal so please I ask for your total discretion and non-judgemental opinion (if that even exists). I've always suffer from anxiety and depression and never done anything to overcome it. I have my ups and downs as everyone that shares this feeling and I just wait for that down to pass so I can move on with my life. It's been hard, I've lost friends on the path, I've even come the person I didn't want to be, and let's not talk about the times I made a fool out of me and my nights lost in alcohol.  

It was not until my mum decided to face it and talked to me that we decided it was time to do something about it. It's been a week now that I started my treatment and I feel a little bit better. I understand is a slow process, specially since I have this issue for a while now -years to be honest-.

Anyhow, so I wanted to give this little background so you could understand and appreciate this post as I did. I was cleaning my mail when I noticed I had an unopened mail from DiagonSally, I realized she actually answered! I asked her 4 months ago if I could write a post just like hers because I really loved the activity, it's called 50 Things That Make Me Happy -as you can see- and she let me do it! On the message she told me it's a perfect post for when you're feeling a little down and I couldn't think of a better time to write it than these days that I've decided to change who I am.
