A JoyFul Life – How to use your creative spirit to manage depression is “a moving, personal account of overcoming depression – both a memoir and playbook for using creativity to cope with challenges.” Forward Reviews
I spent many years struggling with on-again-off-again depression and generalized anxiety. Today, I am depression-free and have been well for the last six years. Although I will always be susceptible to relapse from the illness, medication keeps me feeling strong and confident about the future. I joyfully shine my light brightly wherever I am.
I did a lot of work to free myself of the oppressiveness of depression and the mind-control of anxiety. And I did it my way, with Spirit and creativity as major players. I long to tell my story, if only to give some hope. Because HOPE is what gets us through the day. And HOPE is what connects us with Spirit.
A Joyful Life – How to Work with your Creative Spirit to Manage Depression is my story, a memoir that sheds light on my battle with the illness of darkness. The book follows my journey as I came to find ‘greatness’ through the struggle, through a deep and lasting healing from depression, generalized anxiety and PTSD. The experience has shaped my world. Because it is a story of hope.
