Gratitude Journal 📓 8/27/18

Good morning friends, as we start our day, please don’t forget to show gratitude.

We often hesitate to extend help unless asked. We don’t want to interfere or overstep our boundaries, or we are afraid that our behavior will be misinterpreted.

But an opportunity to assist others is a rare gift, and if your actions come from the heart, you will never be misjudged.

Thank you for those who have offered help to me when they saw I was struggling with something,

even if I was too afraid or to reach out.

For those of us who suffer from mental illness, remember you don’t have to suffer alone or in silence.

It’s ok to ask someone for help, and if you are noticing someone that needs a lifting up, don’t hesitate.

Have a wonderful Monday,

Olivia💗

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 💋
