winter blues and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). The lack of sunlight and shorter days of Fall and Winter (and random periods in Spring and Summer) have affected me for over 25 years and this is the first time I’ve entered this difficult and dark time knowing what I know. I have decided to share more details of my journey towards solving this form of depression on this movie blog with the vision that my findings can help others around the world.
I have been encouraged by a small handful of close friends and colleagues to share my SAD experiences because it still links directly with the Resilience Resources I’ve already been sharing for years in the form of movies. Many other synchronicities have also been coming up to support this as part of my mission and purpose in life. So the timing of seeing The Theory of Everything movie further inspired me to tell my story about SAD.

The Theory of Everything (2014)
The romantic biographical film, The Theory of Everything, is based on the memoirs of Jane Wilde Hawking (Felicity Jones) and her life adventures with her ex-husband theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne). This deeply inspiring film shows their heartbreaking and heartwarming journey together as they face the challenges of Hawking’s motor neuron disease or ALS. See: movie trailer
I highly recommend this life affirming film to inspire you in whatever challenges you are facing right now. You will be reminded that your resilience is empowered by your belief in yourself, an optimistic mindset AND the loving support you can surround yourself with! Make the magic of movies part of your Resilience Resources.
