Learn to love your life. Good days mean we work hard. Bad days mean we rest. But everyday we have to remember to be grateful.

Your LIFE is worth loving. Accepting help, will get you closer to the safety of the shore. With a life jacket, some help from a friend and kicking your feet, you’ll be at shore in no time.

Beach Bag

Every beach trip has a bag of supplies. To overcome depression our supply list includes: a counselor, doctor or friend; finding ways to lessen the amount of toxicity in our life; finding time to ourselves; meditation, prayer, visualization; a gratitude journal, a list of blessings.

Beach Chair/Towel

We need rest! After a rescue our bodies need to heal. Get enough sleep every night, take a nap when you can, take a brain-break (go for a walk, sit out on your porch, take a bath, just laze on the couch. Find ways to minimize stress. We have to heal!

Beach Reading

Some of my favorite survival books: Feeling Good the new mood therapy by David D. Burns, M.D.; The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner, Ph.D.; The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

There arose a great tempest in the sea,…and his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish…Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Matthew 8:24-26
