isn't it funny how when you're really struggling you tend to come across something that makes you stop and think twice?
i've really been struggling lately. my depression is out of control....and i've been having anxiety, no sleep, and i easily get trapped inside my head.
this morning i started reading a book to little buddy. it's a new one that he got for christmas that we haven't read together. it's called "pooh's grand adventure." in the story, it is the last day of summer and christopher robin will begin school the next day. after a day of playing in the hundred acre wood, christopher robin tries to tell pooh goodbye.
he says, "pooh bear, if there's ever a tomorrow when we're not together, there's something you must remember:
you're braver than you believe,
and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think."
it might be a coincidence...maybe it is...but i'd like to think it isn't. after all of the praying i've been doing, pleading for strength, and for help, perhaps this is an answer.
if i can memorize those three lines, and repeat them to myself over and over, maybe i'll start to believe them about myself.
i'm braver than i believe,
i'm stronger than i seem,
and smarter than i think.
