Especially if you think you’re too much of this or too little of that. Often times we fixate on the things we wish we could change about ourselves so much that we don’t see what is beautiful.

I have seasonal affective disorder, a form of depression that usually pops up when I don’t get enough vitamin D.
Today I am feeling the effect of it. I feel a bit blue. Not for any particular reason bc I have a lot to be grateful for (and for which I remind myself constantly).
Just in this very moment, I feel like life is passing me by and I am at a standstill.
