When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Finally Got That Pepsi Can!

Encouraging you to get your own pepsi can on near a river.

Finally reaching  a goal as small as getting a Pepsi can from behind a fence improved my issues.

We live in a rural mountain community.  The scenery is beautiful, but too often people passing by throw their trash by the road.  My friend Wendy and I have made it our mission to keep our town beautiful.

There is a gated hydroelectric dam along a main road.  A Pepsi can has been sitting behind the fence around the dam for almost two years, teasing me because I could not pick it up to recycle.  But today I finally got this misplaced Pepsi can.

As my husband and I walked past the offending Pepsi can, I noticed a small gap under the fence next to it.  I searched for a stick long enough to guide the can back to my side of the fence.  And I finally did it! I finally got that offending Pepsi can to take to recycling.

I felt so happy when I finally got the Pepsi can.  Getting it was only a small goal, but I did it! By myself.

Having this misplaced Pepsi can in my garage instead of on the side of the road helps me tremendously. Reaching a simple goal I have had for a long time improves my depression and anxiety.  My sense of well-being is improved.  My PTSD is doing better now also. I feel more hopeful and productive.  I am more confident,  And I have a sense of accomplishment even though capturing this can was only a small goal.

You can improve your depression, anxiety, and PTSD by reaching  goals.

Make certain your goals are ones you can reach, even if you must be creative in how you reach them.  Find ways around any obstacles you encounter.  And persist until you reach your goals!

Soar like an eagle over life’s mental health storms.  Set and reach your goals!
