It truly is!!

Good morning bloggers, I slept past 4 a.m. last night. Yay!! Small steps, may not be much to some but it’s a hell of a lot to me. I didn’t wake up achy, or grouchy and the walk at the park was kind of refeshing. It’s so pretty outside, I don’t even want to go to work. I just want to sit at the park with a couple of cocktails and read. Oh well a girl can dream right?? So no matter where you are today, take time and smile. It’s so easy to encourage others, have to start taking my own advice…chat soon!!!

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
