โ–ช๏ธโ–ช๏ธA little Monday Motivation,

This past weekend someone I loved dearly told me not attend their funeral because I use to sell my body, I literally laughed it off!
But it made think over my work life, I use to be:

A cashier
Telemarketer
Janitor
Fry Girl
Stripper
Sex Worker
Maid
Teacher
๐ŸŒŸNow Boss๐ŸŒŸ

Out of all the things this person could have said, they used my messy past, but guess whatโ€ฆ.my Mess has become my Messageโ€ฆ
Out of my mess, God birthed a message in me; that’s why I stand before you, Bold, Courageous, and Transformedโ€ฆ๐Ÿฆ‹

It doesn’t matter what they call you; God called you better!! So keep going no matter what you’re messy past may look like; you went through that stuff for a reason! Always remember you can do better and when they bring up your past, it’s because you have done something they didn’t dare to do isโ€ฆCHANGE๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

So today, don’t hide your messy past; use it in your story when helping others! Don’t give other people the right to tell your story before you do; they have a way of distorting your truth!!!

Have an Oโ€™mazing day,

Lady O๐Ÿฆ‹
Boss, Mentor, Teacher, Relentless Entrepreneur, Coach

๐ŸŒŸTurn Your Message into a Beautiful Blessing๐ŸŒŸ

Affirmation of the Day

๐Ÿ’“Even in the best circumstances, the wrong people will keep us from going far. Create a circle of friends/family who are hopeful and positive, just as you are. Avoid drama, and repeat this affirmation to yourself when you are tempted to get sucked into someoneโ€™s negative energy.

How often do you use affirmations? โคต๏ธ

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’‹
