This is my first time doing this #MySundayPhoto thing and I’m not exactly sure why I’m doing it other than it’s a good excuse to take photos and talk about them.
So why this photo? Good question. It’s hardly one that shows Isabelle off as a happy, easy to laugh baby which she often is. But I guess I like it because it’s slightly ironic. She’s wearing a top that says “YAY!” with a very un-yay face.
Today Rachel is in work, and I’m making sure I do everything that I can to not slip into the same depressive state that I did on Tuesday. And instead, I’m setting myself up to have a good day. So one thing I decided to do was a Facebook live stream during breakfast:
I think I’m going to keep it up. It’ll give me something to look forward to doing in the morning. Maybe I’ll connect with some people as I do it. Maybe no one will watch or care, but the point is that I’m starting the day off with something positive. And that’s going to help me cope with the morning and hopefully the rest of the day.
I’m still learning all the time with what helps with my depression. And I’m still not fully used to looking after Isabelle for an entire day when Rachel’s in work, but I’m slowly getting there, and that’s what counts.
