It’s been awhile since I submitted. I’ve been suffering from some pretty demotivating depression, but have recently been trying to drag myself out of it via self-care methods like a SAD lamp & more regular yoga practice. Today, I felt happy enough in my body/self to ask my partner to take some photos of me. This one, as you can see, includes some surprise!light, which seems to be what I need more of both literally & metaphorically.
I don’t know (or particularly care) if my body looks any different than usual as a result of recent exercise, but it’s starting to feel better to live in it.
Best to all,
Welcome back to SS lady. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been struggling but am so happy to see you’ve decided to participate again and even happier to read you’re doing such positive things for yourself. The winter is a tough time, but it sounds like you’re doing everything you can now to feel better through it. It really is amazing what yoga and embracing lighter thoughts can do for us. You look fantastic in this submission and I love the way the window light is shining in through your hair. I hope you continue to care for yourself in the way you’ve been doing as I’m sure the NN community would love to see more from you and hear you’re doing better and better. Take care and remember the winter won’t last forever, it’ll be spring before you know it.
