Thank you to all who have shared their stories publicly and privately with me about depression. They have all touched me more than you know.
I especially like what Jan posted on yesterday's post -
"I try to live by this mantra: Forward, always forward. This is the only way I can fight depression. The only way is to move forward; if you look back, you're not moving forward."
Here is one thing I have done to stay positive..limit my news intake. Sometimes I think it's not even news anymore but shameless selling of fear...along with a few other things ;-)
In the category of moving forward, I have posted my second entry in the Bold Brush online competition. They now have a category for "Popular Entries". Now I know this is in the category of self-promotion, but, hey, somebody's got to do it. This is a monthly online competition sponsored by Fine Art Views. Here is the link to my second entry for the month. I'm not in contention for an award (there's some pretty super art being entered), but the more people that vote for my piece the more hit's I get on my website..which is a very good thing.
