For my own benefit I want to measure how my mood was on any given day. Was I happy or not? Was getting out of bed easy? Could I get the mundane tasks done? and more.
I have tried to be alone with my thoughts about the depression and to try and work through it in meditation or worship but it is not working well enough. I think I need to write down my thoughts and feelings about it. Putting it on this blog and giving me a target of one post per day for a year gives me something to live up to with enough constant urgency so that it will force to be more deliberate in my thinking about it, or I should say in purging my thinking of the depression. I have no idea where it will take me, I just hope it will one of the tools to defeat this depression.
Tomorrow will be the first day. For now in the various languages that matter the most for me:
Happy New Year - Frohes Neu Jahr - Head Uut Aastat
Gott Nytt år - Bonne Année - С Новым Годом - Kloshe Chee Cole
