Weekly Quotable: Bad Days

A bad day is not a one-size-fits-all garment. No one's feelings rate higher than another's. Bad days are bad days. Grief is grief. That's it.

Having said that, though, I do find that reminding myself of the fact that there are people who would love my bad days helps. It brings a different perspective to the situation.

Maybe my bad day feels just as awful as someone else's bad day, but it doesn't deserve more recognition than that.

It's just a bad day.

Time to Stop Circling the Wilderness

Suffering from depression is like stumbing around in familiar territory.

In her teaching on Deuteronomy 2 'Turning North' Lysa TerKeurst wrote, "He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear".

I find enormous comfort in this revelation. After their exodus from Egypt, the Israelites found themselves wandering the desert for 40 years. They must've felt hopelessly lost most of the time, but God always gives you a way out. For them, it was Moses. For me, there are numerous healthier options.


I Am With Nature

From an environmental point of view, there are many things I should be doing differently (or not doing at all). That does not mean that I've stopped trying.
I'm still #WithNature.
The fact that people are such assholes, reaffirms this choice every day.
