      One foot in front of the other. One moment at a time. Just keep onwards.

      I take a deep breath and just go. Right now I'm struggling to find happiness. But im still going taking one step at a time.

      When I feel hopeless the first thing I’ve learned I need to do is tell myself that it’s ok to feel hopeless. Otherwise, I end up in this cycle where I am fighting feelings of shame and anxiety ABOUT my feelings of hopelessness. I try to lean in and let myself feel the hopelessness completely without telling any stories about it; just feel it in my body. Then it usually passes and I get back to finding joy in my daily life; sunshine, tea, books, chats with friends, petting pets.

      I listen to music, watch a comedy, write poetry, call my mom, go out with a friend , walk or cuddle my dog, pet my cats
