If you’ve been following my blog, I shared that I have encountered Postpartum Depression for the first time. Now, it’s really challenging to have it but to have have never experienced it until having my fourth makes me feel like I’ve been t-boned while driving in the lane of life.
No worries. No totalling the car of my life. I had great intervention and encouragement that led me on the path of recovery.
I have noticed sensations returning to my mind, body and soul: Euphoria.
This year’s word is Joy.
I feel like Euphoric is more like me… Joy is polished and pretty but if I’m honest… I love feeling euphoric… Intense excitement marks my life. I am simple. I am a smiling soul.
When I’m not smiling, I am facing s challenge but no worries, I’ve pulled off the road for directions to Euphoria.
I have felt euphoria while cooking, eating, exercising (yup, this could be the litmus test because exercising is a challenge for this mama of four littles).
I can feel a surge of euphoria in my blood racing to knock on the doors to alert my heart and mind: joy, goodness and simply rejoicing!
Postpartum Depression will have no hold on me in this season.
I choose to recognize my season so that I may recognize my moment.
I noticed the feelings of joy and intense excitement returning and I can say, “Thank you, Jesus!”
How about you?
