A clip from my thoughts on June 9th, 2018
I feel every inch of my spirit.
Alive, uncomfortable, anxious hoping silence will calm me.
Back and forth I go over thoughts and how I could make things right – I’m left with nothing
I pause and sigh. “You know what I’m only one person, I’m not God. I can’t do everything. I can’t please everyone.”
If we are not clear about what our purpose and roles are in life, it sort of becomes like we’re on a hamster wheel.
I’m in the process of letting go of perfectionism, it’s served its purpose in my life. I accept that I won’t always know the answer or have solutions for others. We were all given one mind and spirit for a reason – we weren’t designed to live for other people. Yes, it is important to be in a supportive community and of service to others – but our connection to God is the most important aspect of our existence.
I release all plans and fears, and once again – I take a leap of faith.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. Proverbs 31:25

I can no be longer silent about this topic. Not only is it huge in America now, I’ve had personal struggles with mental health.
First off – mental issues are not something people choose to have. Don’t feel like it’s something you could have done to prevent depression, anxiety, or whatever. A mental illness is like any other disease. There are scientific research and studies behind it all.
Secondly, there is nothing wrong with getting help for your problems. Life is hard enough with or without a clear mind. If you need treatment to get growth and blessings in your life – take it! The only shame is not taking advantage of all the available resources to make yourself feel better. Give yourself permission to have peace.
Last not but not least, please don’t judge others. Mental health is becoming less of a stigma here. However, I would like to say that some people use certain outlets to numb the pain. That doesn’t mean they are bad people – he or she just might not have the knowledge of getting help. We should look at others with compassion and grace. No there is not an excuse for sin. But before we judge, let’s all understand what the real issue is.
I hope I could help give you a new perspective on mental health. Jesus died for all our sins – including those who suffer from a mental illness.
