Look at these cute visitors we had the other night! Hope they come back soon!
Wednesday nights are sand volleyball nights. I was never very good at volleyball growing up. I was a soccer play and was much better with my feet. But in college I struggled to find other girls who played soccer to ever make any teams. So I grew to love sand volleyball. I’m some what athletic so I picked it up enough to be halfway decent. Sand volleyball was always something I loved to do for a social activity. I thrive in that kind of friendly but competitive environment. So how does sand volleyball go while suffering from depression? Well it usually involves me being the team encourager but not really feeling much myself. I get frustrated with myself pretty easily and I don’t have a lot of energy to make it through all 3 matches. Well let me tell you what happened tonight. During our game, it was sprinkling, then raining, the a full on down pour and we played through it all. And something sort of magical happened. When it’s raining like that, everyone’s senses are kind of on edge. We started playing faster and with more energy and focus. But during that downpour, everyone sort of falls to the same level. No one is great and everyone’s just trying to adapt and keep playing. At this moment I am so focused and my adrenaline is pumping through me and I forget about everything else. I forget about my depression. I forget about my lack of volleyball skills. I’m simply just living in that moment. And it was so nice and freeing even if only lasted for an hour. It gave me a glimpse and hope and reminder about how great my life will be after I get through this. Today was definitely not a bad day, and while it wasn’t great, it was great for that short time. So today’s calendar gets a blue ‘ / ‘ and a little slash the other way. Not quite a blue ‘X’ but I’m getting there. #SandVolleyball #RainyNights #Cleansing #Freeing #BattlingDepression #MentalHealthAwareness #LifeWithDepression #MentalHealthMatters #CopingWithDepression #MegsJourneyOutOfTheDarkness
