Happy Monday…๐Ÿ˜ƒSmile

Happy Monday friends,

A simple smile can make such a difference. For instance, the other day I mishandled a dish and it fell down on the floor, breaking into bits, producing a big mess.

Now, I could have been furious with myself for being clumsy and thinking โ€œhereโ€™s another reason why life is awful!โ€ But I did the opposite. I began to smile and kind of make fun of myself for not being able to hold on to that plate correctly. As I cleaned up the mess, there was no bitterness or anger. As a matter of fact, I did it with a smile on my face…I executed it with peace. So if you find yourself in a similar quandary, just think of the bright side, and donโ€™t be shy to poke fun at yourself. You’ll quickly realize that peace finds its direction much more easily to you when you smile.

So smile today for your peace, for your sanity, and peace of mind๐Ÿ˜„

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.
