I Survived Monday!!

Yay, I survived today and continued to have positive thoughts all day. This time last week, I was all in a funk but not today. Now, this may not seem like a big deal to some, but to me this is huge. Small steps people, small steps! I can’t remember having a better Monday this month. Work was good, the kiddos didn’t work my nerve to bad and the weather for the first day of spring was great. I actually combed my hair, and looked refreshed for a change. My co-workers all complimented me and I felt loved. Some days are better than others, but I intend on trying to heal for me and my family. I can see the effect it’s having on my son, so I have to be strong for him. No word yet on his situation, so we just keep praying for a good outcome. My head has been in the clouds these last couple days, but today was good. So off I go to bed, nothing but positive thoughts and BIG dreams. Hoping you all had a great first day of spring….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. Iโ€™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.
