Blue Is The New Happy
Blue is usually the color we associate with sadness but did you know that the blue bird is actually a symbol of happiness. I knew there was a reason my favorite color was blue. And that is also why my blog is called the Blue Bird Journals. I love looking for the blue bird in our everyday life. Whether it is in times of hardship, struggle, celebration or gratitude. That little blue bird is usually somewhere to be found!
When I was 16 years old, I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I had some serious ups and downs in my late teens and early 20s. It took me a long time to figure it all out. How to manage the sadness, breath through the anxiety and find some calm. I was on and off medication. One of the things that kept me going was finding that blue bird in my every day life. Holding on to the hope that not every day would feel like this. Now in my, we will call it mid 30s, this is one of my greatest tools.
So that is the reason for my blog, to inspire and remind others that hope is there. Sometimes we just need help finding it.
