Dreams Do Come True, Even When You Have Depression
It's 2017,March to be exact,with a childhood dream in my heart and nothing to lose, I started talking to whomever would listen about the vision that wouldn't let me go. I wanted to create a place for people to work on projects related to nature and gardening and help each other in a community.
I believe this dream came from a place of deep psychological and emotional loneliness. I connected with nature much more significantly than with people, though I longed to really connect with others, I didn't know how.
In 2015, July, I lost my employment due to a relapse of depression. Childhood loneliness and debilitating depression and the desire to be well, spurned me on to put signs up on community boards in coffee shops to gather people interested in gardening. For four years we were an ad hoc group of volunteers who took on beautification projects. Now, since late May of this year, 2022 we have been officially made a subcommittee of the local chamber of commerce. We now have the benefit of the credibility that the affiliation with the Chamber brings as well as more opportunities to do more with our gardening projects. In conclusion, you can live your dreams, while living with depression. #Gardening
