As I feel the Spring air hits my skin, my depression lifts up into the air and flies away from me. My head clears up as I start to feel relieved and free. I even feel a smile on my face.
The sound of birds warms my heart as it breaks the dark outcast in half and starts to beat normal again. Love fills up my heart as my ears listen to the birds’ songs. The hatred inside of me disappears in my mind.
Trees are starting to bloom with beautiful flowers. I can’t help but smile as I look up at branches, watching Spring finally arrive after a long cold winter. The smell of freshly bloom flowers fills my nose with sensation.
I can’t help the happiness from coming over me nor do I want to stop it. Depressions love robbing my life’s happiness more than half of the year. So when I feel happiness, it takes over my heart and body as if it’s something new.
When depression comes in, life feels drained out of me or I’m too numb to function.Every day, I wake up wondering how I’m going to feel that day. I hope for the best. Somedays I let myself down, while others I’m shining bright like a star in the night sky.
The warm weather definitely helps me woke up knowing depression may stay away from me. It’s the only hope I have during the Spring as well as Summer.
During the winter, I love the snow because it’s truly so beautiful as it layers everything with its touch. But if the snow isn’t around, my mind gets lost into my thoughts and I have no control over my feelings. Depression wins more often in the winter because of the bitter air hissing it’s way in my ears.
But the Spring air comes along, and depression barely has a chance of creeping in. Warmer days brighten up my spirits even on the darkest days when I just want to fade away. I just go outside and instantly all my worries lift up into the blue sky. The sun shines brightly down on me and brings happiness into my life again.
A peace of mind comes over me with a dose of strength. I get through the day with a smile. Then, I give depression the finger and enjoy the rest of my day.
