After overcoming my postpartum depression I have been living in fear of having to face anything like that again.  Part of me feels strong that I could come out of such a dark place and feel so wonderful now but the other part is scared.  I am grateful for each day in a way that I never new I could be. Now about that fear...
It's gotta go.

I know it does. 
Fear and faith cannot exist together. 

So today I am choosing to be happy,
Not to live in fear. 
I was carried through the darkness and I know I will be carried if I ever face it again.  Miracles happened. Most were small and almost unnoticed but they were there and all of them together brought me through.

No more fear looming over my head, 
Only bright shining happiness.


PS~ Do you relate? Have you ever had fear that you needed to let go?

PSS~ On an unrelated note. Does anyone else feel like they want to start running after seeing my wimpy sister complete the tough mudder?


  1. Yes and yes! (She is insane!) 

    This is one of my favorite songs, I found it a while back when I was overcoming my own depression. I think you'll like it.

    I was already running, but Selina has inspired me to reach further than I thought I could in every area. Thanks sweetie.  Love Mom

    I looooooove that song SO very much! It was/is such an inspiration to me. We are totally friends! 

  4. All the time!  What's tough for me is that what I do because of my fear looks like responsibility so it's sneaky.  I'm afraid of not having control of things.  Which is ridiculous because I know that sense of control I do have sometimes is just an illusion.  Anyhow, thanks for being so open and honest about your experience.  

  5. I can totally relate to this! Postpartum depression is very real, but choosing to be happy is a huge step in the right direction!


we love comments!!! woo hoo!
