My Inspirational Poem
Sent in By 'Morgyporgs'

Since I first came to depressioNet and joined the messageboard and chat community here, so many have asked what I did to change my life and manage my Depression.
The following poem is one I came across 20 years ago and I have this on a big plaque on my toiled door where it will be for the rest of my life. Reading these words and implementing their messages in my life was enormously helpful in learning to manage my depression. I hope it will be for others too.

        Your presence is a present to the world
        You are unique and one of a kind
        Your life can be what you want it to be
        Take the days just one at a time.

        Count your blessings not your troubles
        You'll make it through whatever comes along
        Within you are so many answers
        Understand, have courage, be strong.

        Realise thats it's never too late
        Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way
        Have health hope and happiness
        Take the time to wish upon a star

        And dont forget...
        For even a day...
        How Very Special You are.
