PowerThoughtsFrontCoverWhether we medically or circumstantially battle depression, when we are in one, we battle our thoughts. Sometimes, those thoughts can be very dark, deep, or dangerous.  I just wanted to send a quick 1-2-3-4 on what I do when the thoughts start percolating in my head. 1) I recite my mental verses (see THIS POST for them) 2) If they move from occasionally dark and deep to chronically dark and deep, I call a counselor, ASAP (see THIS POST for counseling 3) I read books that are uplifting. Two of my favorite on battles and victories with depressing thoughts are “Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyer and “Power Thoughts” by Joyce Meyer.  4) I get myself outdoors and my ears tuned to uplifting music. You know what this does? It actually gets a good song stuck on repeat in my head, and if I’m singing it, I’m not depressively thinking!  Again, I am not an expert on depression, just a seasoned client. But I hope this encourages someone today. Listen, you might battle depressing thoughts, but it does not mean you have to lose the battle. You got this.
