Why Write About Depression Every Day?

It’s a way to say ‘thank you.’

It’s no big deal actually. Writing down ten things that you are thankful for each day is a simple practice we should all undertake.

Although I know that, I don’t actually write the list every day. Maybe my list is this blog, or, at least, one of the things on my list each day is reflected in the daily post.

You might think that I’m stuck in the past, writing about my experiences from decades ago. Except, the truth is, it’s the opposite.

I am one-hundred percent living in the present. Right now, today, I have ten-thousand things I am thankful for.

A long time ago, someone saved my life. I never thanked him personally and I will probably never find out his name.

Every day between today and then, I’ve been helped in one way or another to make it to where I am now.

So, writing a short blog post for you once a day, that takes a few minutes to remember where I came from, even if it touches on a dark and uncomfortable subject, is really the very least I should do.
