When’s the last time you woke up filled with energy? Today was one of those day and I am praying that this strike of good energy continues throughout the rest of the month. Not that things have been bad, they’re really good, but energy is everything. Continue reading “Energy”
A few weeks back I was struggling with my feelings between happiness and sadness. I am very aware/ openly diagnosed with mild depression and I knew that something wasn’t right so immediately, I try to get myself in check. Below, is what my depression looked like as I rose this morning, I woke up to my HOUSE a mess. Desperately wanting to just jump back into the bed, I decided to fix my space.

I’m sharing this so whoever may read this does not feel alone. It’s okay and you’ll get through it. What may work for me may not work for you but do what does. Taking long walks, visit your favorite restaurant, buy a new plant, whatever! Let’s get through this together.
