One of Those Days

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel worthless? Lost and alone? Like nothing you ever say or do will matter to anyone?
I'm having that day. I struggle with anxiety and depression, and today is just one of those times where it kind of overtakes me. So if you're having that day, know you're not alone. When I feel like that, I take stock of the beautiful things in my life, like my daughters. Good books. Lifelong friendships. Chocolate. My obnoxious and hilarious family. A roof over my head. Tylenol for those raging headaches. The beach. 
I don't know what you're thankful for, but make your list. Don't let those feelings of worthlessness take over. It's not you--you are wonderful. It's our brain chemistry messing with us. 
Make your list and repeat it like a mantra. Give all the bad feels the finger. Find joy. Seek medical help if you need to, because this is nothing to be ashamed of. Your happiness is worth fighting for.
