In July 2016 I was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer. My oncologist gave me two or three years to live. Having an expiration date makes you appreciate every single day.
I was unemployed and very depressed for about half a year and now I've had a job for about a month and a half, and I genuinely enjoy it. I'm happy every day to have somewhere to go.
Feels good. Get 8 hours of sleep, eat well, get some exercise, the basic stuff that everyone says will help... actually does.
its a question of contentment (baring depression or other ailments.) learn to accept what you cant change and enjoy what you have, and life gets a fuck ton more sunny
Feels good man. Four years ago next month I stood on top a parking garage fighting the urge to jump off. Today I woke up and didn't fight the urge to get out of bed, just like I haven't every morning for the past two years. It wasn't easy to fight out of the hole, but it feels amazing to know that I did.
