Crawl if you have to…

by Tracey Metzger

I am a dreamer. I love to imagine flying to new heights. I am always conjuring up the “next” thing, making plans and setting goals.

Except for those times when I am not.

When I am in the throes of depression, the dreamer side of me disappears for a spell.  The depressed me can’t imagine that I am capable of lifting myself 2 inches off of the ground much less flying.

On those days I need to remind myself that I will fly again, that I am not going backwards. I am moving forward even if I have to crawl.

Martin Luther King Jr. quote, If I can't fly, keep moving, depression
