3 Year Anniversary of Therapy

April 22nd 2018 marked my third anniversary for starting therapy. It’s been 3 years since I decided to take life by the rein, and actively work on my mental health. It has been life changing, and I’m truly all the better for it. It was (and still is) rough some days, but I had an […]

Of Being Happy and Mindful

I am happy today. I am so happy that my anxiety, and depression are temporarily gone from my awareness. It’s different. Something else is different too. For the first time in my life, I am not afraid to say that I am┬áproud of the fact that I am happy. I don’t have to make excuses […]
