Focus on Gratitude: Day 4

The depression is back, but that doesn’t preclude gratitude.  Our funny little brains are so amazing.  Even in the worst despair, there is a part of the brain that holds Light.  We just have to turn toward it.  We may not be able to reach out for it yet, but the brain will keep it safe until we can.

This morning, I’m surrounded by music—beautiful, heart-filling music.  At David Kanigan’s site, on my iPod, and on my Pinterest boards where I go to get a lift.  And as I am still full of gratitude for my Hobbit adventure on Friday, Ed Sheeran’s theme song is foremost on my mind.

    Beautiful post Sandy. Hadn’t heard this Sheeran song, thanks for pointing me to it.

    First, I can’t get that song out of my mind for three weeks now. Second, I totally agree with this. Even when my mind is filled with negative thoughts, somehow, there is a part of me who disagrees, and insists to look at the light– no matter how faint it is, even if it’s just a flicker of light, it’s light. Third, It’s somehow frustrating to witness a debate happening in one’s mind, but it’s fun sometimes (or at least i think so, on my good days).

      I figure if you can hear the debate, you’ve at least got a chance of joining with the healthy side. And about the song–yeah. I’ll be singing that sucker all winter.
