New Years is a time for a new beginning and a fresh start. It is a time to let go of the pain from our past and focus on today, now, and the future. I have a lot of pain from my past, depression, fear, psychosis, anxiety, emotional eating, and low self-esteem. 2013 is about improvement and progression in my journey of mental health recovery. I’m going to let go of my past and focus on three key coping skills-inner healing, spirituality, and self-love.

Glad you’ve made it through 2012.
