Mental Health Awareness Month: My Story

Mental Health Awareness Month: My Story

I was aiming to write and schedule this blog post this past weekend, but instead, I am just getting to it (it is Wednesday). My goal was to publish the blog posts related to mental health on Monday through Wednesday of this week. When Sunday night came, I realized we would not publish them back to back as I hoped, which was okay. I was fine with spreading them out and publishing each one on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

On Tuesday night, I began to worry. I was concerned I would not be able to write and share my story from the heart. Every time I worked on my blog post, I would type then delete every word I would come up with. I could not find my spark and struggled to write from the heart.

Over the next few days, you can expect blog posts revolving around mental health. My little sister and I have collaborated to raise awareness around this topic we are passionate about. She is currently a graduate student studying to become a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology. She will begin her internship this August, and God willing, will graduate in May 2020.

We took the time to meet and define our goal for each blog post.ย Our final conclusion was to raise awareness, provide helpful resources, and share how we overcame past difficulties.

Conquering My Mind

Thank God for amazing podcasts. For a person who is always on the go, podcasts have easily become my lifesavers. I daydream about the day I meet these amazing people to thank them for their wisdom, honesty, and time.

On a long commute last week, I came across an interesting episode from the Ed Mylett Show. I was so moved by this episode, I actually felt something inside me spark. My desire to continue growing reached a new level by the end of it.
