Today is the final day of the Quote Challenge for me.
Thank you to Angela over at Fuck MS for nominating me.
Once more this quote is one I found when I was battling my depression.
I have always put the happiness of others first. I believe it was because I never felt that I really was suppose to be happy. A lot of different things that had happened and a really bad tape that played over and over and over again in my head.
Now though, I know that I have every right to be happy. To enjoy the things that I love to do. I will no longer bow down to what others think I need to do to make sure that they are happy. That is not how it works in my world any more.
Each day I make a choice to be happy. To do what I love to do. Write. Be with my friends. Hang out with T and laugh. There is a lot of laughter in my life and no misery.
We all have a right to being happy in our lives.
I would like to thank Angela over at Fuck MS for nominating me for the 3 day Quote Challenge. A fellow Canadian living in Toronto, Ontario the province to the east of me. Birthplace of my wonderful mom.
Again this quote was one that I found while I was fighting my depression.
For so long I always believed that my worth was tied into how well I did my job, how good of a friend I was or how well I solved everyone else’s problems.
In doing so I lost sight of myself. The joyful me. The playful me. The writer me.
With each step forward I leave behind the need to prove myself to anyone but me. I am good enough. When I look in the mirror, I am pleased with who I see looking back at me.

I found this back in January while I was in the depths of my bout of depression. It spoke to me because even though I could not see the forest for the trees, I knew that I would not be there forever. And it is still true today.
When things get difficult I need to remember that I am not stuck there. That as long as I continue moving forward my destination will change.
