Looking forward to the New Year - 2018.

Hello everyone, I can not believe where this year has gone! Here we are facing another new chapter in our history, I wonder what we will write?

I have been taking the time to look at quotes recently and would like to share one with you all if you would permit me this indulgence -

'Although no one can go back and make a new start,

Anyone can start from now and make a brand new beginning and end'

Author - Carl Bard.

The nurses and I would like to take this opportunity of wishing all the members of this community a Very Happy and brand New Year.

Best wishes Everyone,

The M.A.S. Nurses.

That’s a very apt quotation - thanks for sharing!

Wishing yourself and everyone here a peaceful and prosperous 2018,


I honestly feel depression is a result of not being able to express ourselves😊I'm nearly 40 now ( new 20 haha) n I want to get out there n start living my life. There's creativity everywhere n I want to start sharing n feel in that side of me that everyone would benefit from. Going through a real dark spell in my life just now. It's a spell that can be broken. Love conquers all n even though it's difficult loving individuals that don't have your best interests at heart it's possible for me to love the good in them and walk away.

Hi Cara78

Sounds like your having a hard time right now which I'm very sorry to hear.

You mentioned wanting to be creative, what are your interests.

I myself like to be creative where possible and I went to a local NHS mental health drop in centre to see what was on offer locally for self help and there was a whole section on being g creative. They have creator writing groups, story telling groups, pottery, painting, dance, yoga, walking groups with other like minded people, cooking and baking classes, then I found other projects and groups that offer workshops in specific skills and interests, there was actually a whole load of stuff available to me and it was a real saviour. I go to little as it's one step at a time but it all really helps me to be creative, feel safe, expressive, be able to not feel alone and freely talk about how I feel at that very moment. There is no judgment and no pressure to attend if you are having off days.

Im not sure if this is something you'd be interested in but just thought id share it with you as i only stumbled across all of this through going out and seeking it. I wouldn't have known otherwise.

If I can help with anything else just hola. I hope you are feeling better and look after yourself

I collect quotes so I always appreciate a new one . That is new to me. Thank you ! Pam

Thanks MAS Nurse. As far as I'm concerned though it will be a new year but same old s***.

Thank you so much and wishing you too all the best in the New Year; May we have a healthy. Balanced and calm time and try and help each other here:


In 2018, My goal is to stop the depression and anxiety by doing my best as a married yet single mom (cuz hubby is working 3 states away)😂😂... With God's help and all of you wonderful angels! Let's face 2018 with Courage and Faith!

Thank you all for being here😇🤗😘

We are power 😁

Thank you so much for sharing this positive quote. Here is one of my favourites at the moment. I hope you enjoy. Happy new year :)

Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together.
