I was talking yesterday to a good friend of mine, Lisa. She has been a big support for me, even though she herself has a lot of challenges with her life and kid's health. She is the one who I had originally had the being good to yourself discussion and we were kind of having a follow up conversation about that.
I was telling her about the
'I Get To.. idea and how that was such a lightbulb moment for me.
She then said something that struck me as funny and I started laughing.
She said "I've usually got a pretty good attitude.. except when I'm depressed".
Isn't that the truth? That is totally true for me, too!
I've usually got a pretty good attitude, except when I am depressed!
