Happy Anniversary to Me๐Ÿค—

Super happy, it’s been one year with my blog and so many years to go! I still don’t have the slightest idea what I’m doing, but I’m learning. I have met some really cool people from places I’ll probably never get to visit. So many people have been encouraging and inspiring. A year ago I was pretty messed up, but now I can actually see my growth. I’m learning the blogging world slowly and I’m ok with that. I’ve had my ups and downs on here and wouldn’t change a thing about it! I’ll say again, depression has been a blessing and a curse. So here’s to may more years of me getting better at blogging! Also thanks to all of you who follow and put up with my mess of a life๐Ÿค—Big hugs to you all๐Ÿ’•

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. Look forward to having you read my blog, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
