7 Steps to Save Yourself from Depression

How to overcome depression? Why we must not ignore depression? Many may find it as normal, but I find it alarming. Depression is a silent killer. 
It kills your joy, it kills your hope and it kills your inner peace. It loses our reason to live. It only gives you sorrow and agony that penetrates in your inner soul.
Many people are not aware that they’re in the depressing state. As early as possible, we must detect this silent killer.
1.       Pray. Unload your burden to God. The main reason why people get depressed is that they have a huge problem or burden that they carry with them. Loose that thing that burdens you. Sometimes it’s hard to forget and hard to let go, but we must entrust it to God. Trust God, He can carry it through. God is an all-knowing God, and He knows what you’re going through. God wants to carry your burden. He wants to save you.

2.       Bring back your inspiration. Find the reason to celebrate life. Look on the people who stays by your side. Keep them. Treasure and appreciate them. They love you. They will give you reason to celebrate life and makes you glad.

3.       Don’t shut yourselves from people.  Don’t give satan, the enemy, the reason to play on you. He manipulates your mind and thoughts. Go to people who can be trusted. Talk to them, tell them about how you feel. Go to your family or a Christian friend who can help you out. Satan wants to discourage you, but God wants to uplift you. God will use people to encourage you.

4.       Go out. Go to the place where you can find yourself at ease. Go to church, eat on your favorite restaurant, shop, go to salon and spa. You must pamper yourself. You deserve a treat. Give time for yourself. Give yourself a break- from stresses and work. Know your worth. Give yourself a time to sort things out.

5.       Encourage someone. One way to encourage yourself is to encourage someone. There are a lot of people who are also in need of encouragement. You know how it feels, you know their grief and you can empathize to them and bring compassion to them. In that way, you will be encouraged.

6.       Move on. Know the cause of your depression, if it’s people… then approach them and talk to them. Humility is the key. Ask for forgiveness. If it’s circumstances, look on the brighter side. It’s just an obstacle, it’s not the end of the race. It may be hard, but sooner, you will understand.

7.       Know Jesus. He can intercede for you. Believe that Jesus saves you to bring you life in Him. He wants you to enjoy abundant life with Him. You will be an overcomer. You will overcome!

I hope that this will help you. I hope it will save you, because it saves mine.

Keep going everyone. God bless.

To-Do Over a Christmas Break

Christmas is my favorite season. I don't know, its in the Christmas spirit that makes my heart feels so glad. Maybe because this is the time of the year where all your family members gather together and celebrate the season. Relatives and old friends are reunited in Christmas parties and other get-together gathering. Aside from that, this is the time where I can have a long break from all the stresses in work. What I love about this break is that I can always find time for myself- to do the things that I failed to do during regular days.  I can have my "me time" and I can do whatever I want to do. So here it is, I've already planned out my "To-Do Over a Christmas Break Checklist".

So, to start things of, I got  list of activities. I put check mark ( ) to the accomplished tasks and x for the things I haven't done yet.

✓  1. Do some general cleaning- Do the sweeping, clean my room, wash clothes, clean my bedding, bags and etc. I got this "OCness" in me that I wish to clean everything almost everyday, but failed to do it due to school work. So, finally I got to make it today. I'm proud I got to wash mine and my sister's clothes. You can rarely see me washing because I hate washing clothes. 

X  2. Paint-  I got some blank canvas and set of oil paint, so I'll start painting at least 2-3 paintings for this season. I really love painting. It is my first love but it saddens me, knowing that I can only do it once in a while. 
  3. Cook my Specialty Dish- Nobody knows I love cooking, but I feel exhausted in cleaning after cooking so I rarely cook. This time I want to practice cooking spaghetti and tadahh... I made some for Christmas eve.  

X  4. Facial Treatment- I really love facial massage. It is soothing and relaxing. I love the result, so I gotta visit the clinic this Christmas break.

5. Read a Book- I downloaded a book and I'm planning to read it this Christmas break. It's a Christian book to be exact.

6. Go some place (somewhere) alone-  I wanna be independent this coming 2018. All my life my parents,siblings, friends dictates me on things I'm going to do. This time, it's my symbolic way of expressing... "this time, Im going to do it on my own", not because somebody said so. I want to be an independent woman.

7. Rest from Social Media- I was so bombarded with so much happenings in social media that I don't understand anymore the things that is going on in my life. This time, I'll gonna spend time with my self resting, meditating. I also wanna spend time with God and do some catching up. heheh

8. Go out with a Friend-  I am a busy person that even going out with a a friend is such a hard thing to do. I miss my friends a lot. I want to catch up with them and spend some quality time with them. I hope I can do this before the break ends.

X 9. Dinner in a Restaurant w/ Family- I know what you're thinking. Yeah right, I'm a boring and busy person. But I'm trying to change :| for the better.We usually had dinner (together) at home but not in a restaurant- yeah, due to busy scheds (I guess).

10. Write some blogs-  my blog is my safe haven, this is where I can express myself when others are not listening. Aside from prayer and painting, this is where I can be myself. I maybe fake and pretentious in front of many people, but my blog is where I want to be. I can be sad, lonely, gloomy and happy. All sorts of emotion I can express and good thing, nobody cares.

So, this is it. I got my list and it's all set.  I got to accomplish it before my break ends. Got to go! Keep going everyone. Happy holidays. 
Merry Christmas everyone and God bless you.

The Pessimist Optimist

Everything that we go through in life is just a part of the process, it's part of God's plan. Sometimes we think that life is so unfair, life is so cruel and some things don't happen just the way we want it. Hold on... we'll go through it. Everything will be unfolded in the right time, just the way God wants it and it will be beautiful. Wait, God's in the process of molding us, making us into a better person.

I would say I'm a pessimist in some way. I always think that I can't do it and I will never make it. I have certain things and plans that I want to do in my life, but at the back of my mind... it will fail- I'll never make it. I hate myself for being this way. God has many good things and promises, but believing and holding on to it is such a hard thing to do. I always search for proof and evidences before I believe. I still need someone to push me forward for me to do it. I have no enough agility to stand up and do it. But God who is so gracious, keeps on reminding me that He is there for me. He wants me to do things for His glory. He wants me to do it with Him. As He promised, all things works together for good for those who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.

God wants me to be an optimist. Everyday is a battle, is either we hold on or give up and let go. It is about us to stay positive even things around you is failing. The inner pessimist me comes out when storm comes, but God who is forever gracious remind me that we are made to be an optimist. We can do it, as long as God is on our side.

Have a blessed day. Keep going and God bless.

In Due Time

The eyes of all look to You,  and You give them their food in due time.
                                                                                   -Psalm 145:15
I m currently reading on this book God's Whispers to a Woman's Heart. And I find it very helpful to inspire my inner soul. I'm recommending this book to you . I love it and it helps me to stay in tune with God. Deep inside our soul, we want to hear God's whisper. This is what our hear needs.

Here's a glimpse of that book. Quoted from that book.

"My child, I know that you look around you and you see so many who seem to have so much more than you. But look closely, do they have Me? Let me change you heart and perspective so that you will gladly live with a little and honor Me rather that choose to have plenty and disregard Me. Trust that I will life you up is due time. Walk closely next to Me. My child, during these days that seem unfair, so that you will see me in your circumstances and grow in unwavering trust. As you do it, it pleases Me to pour out out blessings to you... in due time."

I find it very helpful to walk in my day to day life. I recommend this book "God's Whispers to a Woman's Heart" by Cindi McMenamin. Find time to read books that will uplift your faith and nourishes your soul. Keep going everyone.
