I am absolutely beat. My legs and feet ache right now, but it was well worth it! I went hiking today with some friends, and I think it's the start of a new hobby. Like I need anymore right? It felt awesome to actually do something so productive rather than mope around. I think it cleared my head. I think I can start getting back to commissions with confidence. Taking it one step at a time. Nature is full of inspiration.
I also owe a lot to my intense focus on music right now for raising my spirits. I use playing guitar and writing to calm me, and it has really paid off in the past week. In reaction to the recent occurrence that cause the depression, I've started giving my music 100% of my attention, being that it helps me cope so much. I'm glad to be finally focusing on it seriously, rather than loosely like before. It makes me realize how much confidence and hope I did not have in myself before. Man, crazy stuff happens to you when you're forced to make an upsetting change in your life.
I can not thank everyone who has made me feel better with their messages enough. You are all too kind. I am very lucky to have this generosity. Thank you, thank you. ♥
