FAITH

my very first post

I’ve been updating some very old posts as I’ve learned this is considered a good thing to do after you’ve been blogging for awhile. Especially if they weren’t read by anyone. 🙂 Anyway, apparently this was my very first post although it looks pretty good so I wonder if that’s really accurate. However, there were no tags and no categories so it probably is. You’d be surprised how hard it was for me. I’ve never worked on anything so hard in my whole life.

Now I’m even talking a little HTML and CSS. Haven’t figured it out but continuing to try.

I’m sharing this with you because it reminded me why I started blogging in the first place. And it was a happy surprise to realize my goals haven’t changed at all.

Dear reader,

This is a “trial” post.  I have no clue what I’m doing but I need to see something on my page so I know what it looks like.  Hence, this post.

I can tell you this is going to be an unusual blog, a self-help (especially for those who experience bouts of depression) format and at times, a DIY blog with pictures if I can figure this out.  For right now, let me just encourage you if you are feeling depressed.

I was there on and off for years. I’ve learned a lot from my struggles and am anti-depressant free for now. I will be sharing the daily strategies I use. Many have told me these tools have really helped.

I’m not a therapist but I’m not a novice either.  I have a degree in Psychology, two quarters of Clinical Pastoral Education (no, I’m not a minister) and worked a number of years as a hospital chaplain. My faith is the most important part of my life but I choose not to try to convince anyone to believe as I do.

Some of the techniques I use are of a  spiritual nature but they can be adapted to your own personal lifestyle.I only want to help.I know what it feels like to be really “down” and have no clue as to why.

Please check in with me often.I will try to post about three days a week.

Now back to figuring out this blog stuff.

(I’m adding my usual “good-bye” although I really added this much later.)

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
