Depression is a soul sucking Zombie. That first quote is the best. I have to get up and do something before I can move on to the others.Then once I’m going I need to keep moving as if being chased by Zombies, because once I stop then I lose. Great Post.

Motivation is a great thing – if one can reach for it. It is an external activity that can move one to do the internal work. Quotes, books, meditation, workshops, and the support of angels were things that were key to my climbing out of the darkness of depression. Keep up the good work of providing motivation for even one. Namaste.
