Gratitude Journal 8/26/18๐Ÿ““

When our lives get overloaded, one of the first things we cut back is the time we spend with friends.

But it is these very relationships that can center us, ease our stress, and remind us of our true priorities.

Thank you to those who make time for me. Please help me to do the same.

Friends are very important during difficult times, I’m so glad my friends didn’t let me push them away in my darkest moments!!!

Check your friend circle if you have somebody you have pushing away, go to them and welcome them into your mess of a life with open arms!

Have a Beautiful Sunday,

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’‹
