Day 7: less glam side- for me the less glam side of being an artist, running your own small business, creating & being a maker are the days like today, ironically.  The days when you feel less than, not good enough, blah, lost, unmotivated, & just tired. Days like today when all I want to do is curl up with my pillow & disappear. Days that remind you of the realness of running ur own gig- how it’s EXTRA hard work! Days that remind you that being an artist takes a lot of brain work! Days that drain you to the point of wanting to sleep it away. I hesitated posting about this all day- I told myself just post a broken mug, a dirty shirt,  or a messy room... anything other than this. But the truth is, this is real- a mug can be remade, a shirt can be cleaned, and a room can be organized. Depression on the other hand doesn’t always show up the same way. Depression comes in all styles & just because a person can look happy & active everyday doesn’t mean they don’t feel sadness, doubt, worthlessness, loneliness.  This is my less glam side & I embrace it as I would my great days. 
My kiddos always seem to know though & they tag team to get me out of my worst moods. Charlie took one for the team today & snuggled with me. I let myself feel this today- totally unproductive & even cried a bit. Tomorrow is a new day though & I’ll make sure to wake up & live my best life! If not tomorrow there’s always the day after. But here’s to the sun coming out tomorrow.  #marchmakers #thiscreativeheart #marchmeetthemaker #depressiondoesnotdiscriminate #depressionisreal #depressionisoktotalkabout #belove #checkonyourstrongfriends #realtalk #lessglamside

Just heard the news... second friend lost in the last four months to suicide... Something needs to change.. whether it’s our health care options, our society and how we treat others, etc.  I know we can’t save them all, but I do know something needs to change... There is so much hate in our country these days that it’s hard to see if there’s any good people left. This woman right here was a beautiful soul. She was so kind to me back when we used to work together and I admired her so much for her positive vibes she spread making the work day easier to deal with.. I remember listening to her jokes and hearing her sing along with any song I was singing. I remember how beautiful her voice was and her attitude was always so positive that it was hard not to smile around her lol. I admired her for that and wanted to do the same with others. So hearing this news was devastating because I was just thinking about her the other day and how I hoped she was doing well.. This is a big reminder that #depressiondoesnotdiscriminate and it never will... You will be dearly missed Priscilla... Rest In Peace @prissonic__boom

We live in a world with so much light yet nearly just as much darkness. For some that darkness can be harder to erase than others. You can only shine so bright before you dim. Chosing to face the light can have various meanings depending on your place. Either way, the choice is yours. 💔

Depression doesn’t discriminate - it doesn’t care who you are or what you’re life looks like. In early 2018, I found myself in a deep funk that I just couldn’t shake. Along with the feelings of sadness and anxiety, I felt so much guilt and shame. I have a beautiful life - what did I have to be depressed about? But that guilt and shame were just parts of the depression. It’ll fool you into thinking the most awful things. With some loving nudges from my wife, I tapped into services and was able to work through those feelings. Then the healing process began. It can begin for you, too! Recognizing the blessings in life is a great intervention, but it’s not always enough. No matter how good things are around you, you can still be depressed. Push through that guilt and shame and seek help. You’re worth it!

It’s January 4 of the new year. I’m posting this picture because I look really happy. Because I *was* really happy. And I’m wistful for the me that I see in this photo. Because the me that I am today, can’t remember any traces of the me in that photo.⁣
⁣
So I’m posting this as a reminder to myself and to all of you, that when you’re bogged down in the mire of #depression, and you can’t remember what it ever felt like to feel happy, there’s actual proof of a time when you were.⁣
⁣
Telling myself, “It will be better.” only does so much. However reminding myself with a photo 📷 of when I was, does much more.⁣
⁣
Be kind to yourself in these short, dark, cold 🥶 days of winter ❄️. Actually, be kind to yourself always. And try to always have hope. #swflivingwithdepression #whathappynewyear #glimmersofhappiness⁣

I was having lunch with one of the sweetest, loveliest people. She has such a beautiful light ☀️ inside her and a beautiful energy 🧚🏻‍♀️. She was really just speaking truthfully. She didn’t mean anything by it. And there was nothing wrong with what she said. It even kind of surprised me.⁣
⁣
She never would have guessed it. “You’re so confident, friendly...”. It’s true. I am. But I also live with with chronic depression. ⁣
⁣
A reminder that mental illness doesn’t discriminate. Mental illness doesn’t have a look. Mental illness is rich and poor. Skinny and fat. It’s young and old. It’s white collar and blue collar and unemployed. Mental illness is me and you. It’s all of us.⁣

This is my grandmother. She was everything to me. I never met someone who didn’t love her, who didn’t have anything but generous, glowing things to say about her. She was the life of the party. She was the kind of person whose name others would drop because she had so much social cache, despite the fact that she wasn’t famous for anything other than being delightfully charming.⁣⁣
⁣
You wanted to be around her. Even just to be in the same room. She was sweet, magnetic, warm, and loving. My grandpa adored her, constantly taking her picture. She loved art and animals and babies and beautiful things. She loved the colour green. She was alive and vibrant. She loved bright colours and coral lipstick.⁣⁣⁣
⁣
When she died, I found some of her diaries. I was loathe to discover that she had another side. A #darkside. A #depressed side. I was shocked that this beautiful woman so full of life, so charismatic, so seemingly happy, MY grandmother—had a secret life of suffering. She was such a talented actress that no one even knew. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Which brings me to genetics 🧬 and the nature/nurture argument. I have factors on both sides of the argument contributing to my #depression.⁣
⁣
*I’ve* often been described as magnetic, charming, magnanimous. Is this how the world seems me? I have the same hidden sadness.⁣⁣⁣
⁣
I wish she’d lived now, when we’re talking about #mentalillness. That this talking allows support. It decreases shame. It encourages a balanced person rather than being forced to have 2 sides—a public and a secret one. Would her experience have been any different if she had the opportunity to lighten her load, lessen her burden, find with others a commonality in her #depression?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣
This is why I do this IG. For her. For me. For those who don’t have the space, desire, confidence, whatever—to speak their #mentalhealth truth. #endthestigma⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

When I tell people “I’ve lived both ends of the spectrum” I’m not sure they believe me. 
Starting my journey years ago, I always wanted to be s k i n n y. 
Let’s be honest here...
There’s so much pressure around women to be a size 2 and I was not. 
I was a size 16. 
That photo on the left...it took me months into my journey to finally snap it. I hoped that one day I would thank myself for taking it. Even though I wasn’t proud of the girl staring back. 
How F’d up is that?! I know I KNOW. 
I continued to push. And I started seeing success. Wouldn’t you know it, I became obsessed with chasing the number. Being a total cardio junkie, I couldn’t do enough, eat clean enough or feel anything was enough. 
I was 141 lbs. Y’all I had lost 80 lbs since having my second daughter! 
Forced smile and all...I still wasn’t truly happy. 
And I couldn’t understand why. 
I remember attempting a weight training program and I quit. 
Wanna know why? My weight was creeping up and my legs were beginning to feel snug in my size 6 pants. 
Turns out when you lift weights you gain this stuff called muscle 🤭
Fast forward through another pregnancy and a whole lot of mental shifting and the picture on the right is ME. A size 10. 170 lbs and happy.
[ you can diet. you can workout. but if you don’t deal with the sh*t going on inside your head, it doesn’t matter ] 
A lot of personal development and eliminating toxic situations allowed me to be happy being me. 
I workout for my health, and not for a number. 
I eat to nourish my body and not for a size. 
There is no such thing as an ideal body type, yours is beautiful. 
Embrace your flaws. Speak kindly to yourself and loving yourself becomes a hell of a lot easier ♥️

🛑 TRIGGER WARNING‼️ ⚠️⁣
⁣
When depression looks like:⁣
⁣
Existing is the thing that you have to do to get to die.⁣
⁣
That’s where I’m at today.⁣
⁣
Please note, with sincerity, I AM NOT suicidal, nor having thoughts of suicide, nor am I having thoughts of suicide ideation.⁣
⁣
This is just the verbiage that accurately explains what the black pit of depression actually feels like— that existence is a nuisance, a chore, that you have to suffer through. ⁣
⁣
It’s amazing that the mind, the brain, chemistry, are capable of such feelings. Hopelessness. Vacancy. Despair.⁣

I can’t help but wonder if more of *this* would have an impact on #mentalillness symptoms? Thoughts 💭?

There is a strong misconception that just because someone has money, fame, and resources at their disposal, that they should have nothing “to be sad about”

This idea not only contributes to the stigma surrounding mental health, but it also isolates the many people struggling who also seem to live “perfect” lives.

It is so important that celebrities who identify with or support mental illness speak out, not only because they have a platform that reaches way more than many of us ever can, but because they solidify that #DepressionDoesNotDiscriminate and can have a significant impact on so many lives.

Thank you @jcolewrld @chancetherapper @dereklanderson @ladygaga @btwfoundation @m_phelps00 who are only a few of the incredible celebrities who have used their stardom to bring good to this world 🌟✌🏼

There is a strong misconception that just because someone has money, fame, and resources at their disposal, that they should have nothing “to be sad about” This idea not only contributes to the stigma surrounding mental health, but it also isolates the many people struggling who also seem to live “perfect” lives.

This beautiful soul was standing in a downtown #toronto bustling intersection. He was such a visceral reminder of what’s actually important.
.
I can’t help but wonder if more of *this* would have an impact on #mentalillness symptoms? Thoughts 💭?

Night one of my sleep challenge! I made a post earlier today about letting several obligations fall to the wayside and one of those obligations was getting adequate sleep 😴. Ideally, I’d like to be in 🛌 by 10pm so that I can wake up ⏰for 6am. One of the main reasons for this is that the earlier I get to bed, the earlier I will rise, and the earlier I rise, the more sun exposure ☀️ I’ll have—which is imperative for my mood. ⁣
⁣
So, my goal 💯 is bedtime at 9:30pm and asleep by 10pm. Night one is 12:20am, so I have quite a way to go to reach my goal. But believe it or not, 12:20am is a marked improvement from when I usually get to bed. Stay tuned and g’night 🧸 🛌🌛!⁣

Happy Thanksgiving! For those of you who find the holiday season difficult, I’m here for you, baby! #poresthesizeofnickels
.
The holidays are traditionally about family. And while family can sometimes be the very reason we’re able to make it through tough times, it is often the reason we have those tough times in the first place. Which makes days like today...loaded, hard, triggering.
.
My mom picked me up from the airport nine years ago today. We had a big Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings. The following morning, she dropped to her bedroom floor while putting on mascara, unable to move or speak. After calling 911 and being whisked to the hospital for brain surgery, she never came back home. I learned she had metastatic melanoma. She wanted one more “normal” Thanksgiving before telling us. When I think about that day, it barely seems real.
.
I’m taking care of me today by having no expectations from myself. It’s a freebie day to do and be what- and however I want. That’s the most compassionate thing I can do for myself.

Mental illness doesn’t have a look. And it doesn’t discriminate.
.
When I share with people that I have chronic #depression and have been living with it for over 27 years, I often get replies of shock or surprise. In my mind I’m thinking, “What did you think ‘depression’ looked like?”.
.
Apparently, not this. Dirty? Poor? Uneducated? Lazy? Ironically, my depression looks like all of those things from time to time. Which is just fine, too. It’s part of the drag. But it’s important for the world to learn that depression looks like lupus or dyslexia or diabetes. Meaning—it’s invisible. It looks like me. And you. And her. And every damn one of us.

I know my depression intimately. We’ve known one another a long time—might as well be friends. What have I learned? I must surround myself with things that make me happy. These include: my #dogs (that’s Guinevere shoved inside my zippy), books/reading, and #collecting #oldfashioned #ooak bears and dolls. What, if anything, makes you #happy when you’re in the depths of #depression?

I hate sweating. I hate being hot. I hate the blinding sun. But there’s no denying that that hot 🥵 bastard sun chases away the depressions. I have a S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) light, but you just can’t beat #therealthing

Standing up on stage.
.
Standing back on my feet.
.
I didnt scream about it outwardly. I dont think I had that much left within that sloshed up nervous system to even react for real. But this moment left a big mark in my heart. A huge one.
.
I only remember getting off stage, walking out to the back later, holding on to @yannitan and we both just burst into tears. Tears of gratitude. Tears - knowing in my complete weakness, He is strong. Tears - knowing He still would use this broken vessel and love me whether I was all-together or in a million pieces.
.
Depression and anxiety do not discriminate. They do not only hunt or hurt certain types. Ruthlessly, they will take anyone down. A.n.y.o.n.e
.
I've shared this before but will say again here that this ig was God's calling. I realised years back He gave me the gift to speak truths. I never knew though that I had to learn to speak them from some of the deepest darkest pits of pain. But in doing so, He has also taught me to chase lions in the bloody cold and to stare fear in its face; and fight the beast in a pit.
.
This lesson is not only for me. He is using me, to reach you.
.
Am I always that brave and have it together? Hell no. Lord knows how many times I have had to wrestle myself in the last 1.5 weeks of travel. How many times I had jolted up in the middle of the night terrified and fiercely reached out for my medication. How many times I have to excuse myself from the kindest company to find solitude for breathes. And even how many time while travelling home yesterday, I still fight those random assaults.
.
None of us is in a perfect place. Yet. And we could be scared to death and threathened by the ugliest types of fears. I just wanted you to know today that that fear is a bastard (pardon my french) and you deserve better.
.
It is your birthright.
.
So get back up on your stage. You belong there.

Yesterday/today was a low day. Living an authentic life means recognizing how we define a “good” or a “bad” day. My #depression forces me to remind myself that I can’t always hold myself to the same expectations, or expectations from a period in my life when I felt well. It’s about having compassion for yourself and modifying what success looks like both when you are sick, and when you are well.

It’s always nice when you can “unpack” 📦 🧠 🗂 a thing and understand it later, when your mind and spirit are ready. Realized a new coping behaviour that I didn’t know I had.

This is me living with #depression. It’s not me “struggling” with it. It’s not me “tackling” it. That’s not to say that there aren’t moments or even days when I am “struggling” or “tackling” or other some such verb (- ing) with depression.
.
I hear the language we use to talk about mental illness (as contrasted by “mental health”) and it’s rife with inaccuracy. In a more macro sense, I think it’s better that we’re actually discussing #mentalhealth and #mentalillness; and this can be new, scary, and awkward terrain. But in that newness, we often use language to soften the blow, minimize the stigma, make it more...palatable. But in so doing, we can be serving to perpetuate those very perceptions that we’re trying to change.
.
So, this is me living with depression. Which is a mental illness. I have a mental illness. I’m naming that. And I’m at peace with it.
.
Note on the pic: I felt it apropos. There have been many a moment when I’m visibly happy but there’s a metaphorical train—screaming, off the rails and hurdling forward—behind the smile.

Almost giddy after a moment with comedian #mariabamford. She has inspired me, perhaps more than any other person, to have an honest dialogue about my #mentalillness. This #comedicgenius thoughtfully, unsuspectingly, and brilliantly weaves groundedness,  #mania and #hysteria throughout the terrain of her #standupcomedy material. For me, #humour is a coping tool in my #depressiontoolbox 🛠🔩 Has anyone made a positive impact on your #depression? Please tell me in the comments! #whenyoumeetarolemodel #laughteristhebestmedicine

This little piece of perfection has gotten me through an entire decade of ups and downs. More importantly, she’s often been the only reason I’ve peeled myself out of bed on days when I would have been perfectly content to nearly piss myself and lay there all day. Animals provide amazing comfort in their silence. How do animals or pets help you with your #depression?

What are the words you use to describe feeling “sick” snd “not sick” from #depression? Also, one of the (many) reasons why the onslaught of a new depressive episode is particularly devastating.

Butterflies in my tummy is an understatement! In just ten days I am going to leave my children with their da and their nana and I’m going to join the Movement Room crew to tackle the Cape to Cape Hike down south.
.
The walk is over 8 days and we will do between 16 and 22km each day with a broad range of tracks so on the beach, through forest, and rocks and hills and eeeep this excites me and terrifies me haha!! It’s 135km all up starting at the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse and finishing at the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse.
.
The Online Hike, a three month programme based around the C2C hike, is now complete. So far I have raised $915 which all goes straight to the Gidget Foundation to support their online #starttalking initiative. I have spent the last three months exploring my own relationship with movement and my mental health. We have had some awesome discussion not only here with my Mamatree followers and in my workshops but also in my family and friends. Discussion is open and every time someone comments on my Move for Mental Health shirt to ask what it’s about I can see a tiny bit more of the stigma associated with mental health being erased!!
.
I’m flipping between being so dang excited to have a whole week invested into this hike and get away from the daily grind and explore a new part of WA that I haven’t before. Then I feel super worried that I’m not physically or mentally ready for it!! Then I feel awesome about the cause it is supporting and knowing the difference it has made in my own family let alone the generations to come.
.
Going for a walk is honestly something so simple and achievable to do to support your mental health, especially if you can find a nature trail or beach where you can immerse yourself in nature regularly. If you haven’t tried this yet then give it a go!!

Here's one thing you may not yet know about me - I was trained as a health coach with institute of integrative nutrition.
.
I say this with mild trepidation, imagining the things that may float through minds - she is a what!?!?! - and she is unwell?!??! How do you stack thaaat up?
.
So if you are one of those wandering minds - let's clear the stage : Depression and anxiety DO NOT discriminate. You can be a king, a president, a preacher, a home maker, a kid - mental wellness does not hand pick. Yes, sometimes there are predispositions that make you clinically more prone to it. But otherwise, they slap you thick in your face with no kindness accorded. It is not an illness of weakness nor a condition you can just easily force yourself to happy out of.
.
Your body got hurt. Internally. Emotionally. Spiritually. Can we be gentle?
.
There are many ways to get back on our feet. Medicines and wholesome natural modalities, food and exercises all have a role. You can start from many different directions. But start. And allow variety and allow choices.
.
Today I had let myself enjoy a wholesome pumpkin soup from #thebutcherwife. Sprinkled with nuts, roasted pumpkin and tiny pieces of brie, this hearty soup made my gut happy. So a little take away from this post - brain-gut health will be a totally important  piece to healing mental health. Pick nourishing food. Pick soul giving food. Pick food that will love you.

With mental health awareness week coming to an end I thought I’d share something I learned during my journey. 2016 was when I decided I wanted to lose weight and at the time that was the most important thing to me. With 2018 coming to an end I’ve learned that (in my opinion) MENTAL HEALTH is 10x more important than physical health/money/grades ETC ETC ETC. Are those all important? Yes, but you can always get in better shape, bring your grades up, and make more money. It is harder to improve your mental health than it is to do any of those things. Take care of yourself.🌸

For world mental health day I decided to go on a run because that usually makes me the happiest, but I forgot to take a selfie🤷‍♀️ Anyway, I think these two pictures are VERY powerful. The girl in the first picture is having the time of her life dancing the night away with friends (PS if you need a plus 1 to a wedding LMK) The second picture is also me. I have days I feel like I can't get out of bed. Mental illness doesn't discriminate. I have a great life, friends, family, etc etc etc and I STILL HAVE REALLY BAD DAYS. I do believe that things get better and one day I'm going to look back on this time in my life and be so happy I didn't give up. Until then I'm going to do everything in my power to speak up about mental health. Choose to keep going. Choose life🦋

I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the #thisisme campaign so far and for those who are rocking it in a new tee and the necklace 💕💕 Acceptance is a huge part of any journey involving mental illness or in face any kind of illness. Talking about things seems hard, impossible even but talking lifts the weight, clears the dark cloud so you have the space to deal with the shit.

Saying This Is Me and that's fine, hell more than fine, is the first but biggest step. 💕💕 Thanks again to you awesome peeps! 
Much Love, Beth xx

Sometimes you just forget how long youve been depressed for.
I really feel for young people with mental illnesses. They are looked over far too often and misdiagnosed or labelled as misunderstood.
You can be depressed or have a mental illness at any age. We need to understand people much more and end stigma

For this is AMAZING! Only we break down the stigma- can we truly be free. ✨ #MentalHealth is important. Conversations need to happen, new #policies need to be enacted, and most of all humanity needs to #wakeup to the fact that one in four people in the world will be affected by a mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives. Just as important as physical health, make your mental health a PRIORITY. Talk to someone you trust, seek therapy, set boundaries and know you are not alone.  May the peace you seek find you. 💥💕

Purposely become intentional about the thoughts that you allow stay on your mind. Emotions come from your thought life and negative thoughts drain your energy and that can make you sick. If everything is not working now, remember that some things have worked in the past and some things are working now, think on these things. You can actually take control of your mind but you must fight for it everyday.#mentalhealth#depressiondoesnotdiscriminate#fightforyourhealth#emotionsdonotruleyou#mindsetdevelopment#toughtimesdontlast#virtues#goodreports#lovelythings#anythingpraiseworthy#thinkonthesethings

Let's talk about it! Struggling in life isn't the only option; help is always just around the bend, if you're brave enough to seek it. I've been affected personally by depression in my past and it's a legitimate cause for concern and something that you never think will strike you, until it does. I've lost a friend recently from this, who was near and dear to me; known of others from highschool who've succumbed to this, and countless other loved ones who have almost slipped into this despair for good. It's not a fucking joke!! We can all do better at reading the warning signs and trying our best to help, or at least let the other person know we're there for them if they need us. Don't let dumb, outdated stigmas get in the way of having discussions that could truly impact yours or someone else's life. It's mental health first, otherwise, nothing else can be accomplished! #suicideprevention #awareness #youareloved #loveyourself #depressiondoesnotdiscriminate

i’ll shout it for the people in the back: depression does not discriminate! it does not see color or gender or sexuality! depression is not cool, or trendy. depression is a serious mental illness that affects anyone , black, white, straight, gay, rich, poor. privilege has nothing to do with it.  this was a cry for help that was overlooked because of certain attributes. .

Living EPIC has become a huge part of my life. Started as a dream and now I am living it! 
I have come so far from the lost little girl from 4 years ago. There was so much heaviness and pain I was holding on to then. I thought I deserved it. I thought that God was punishing me. I thought that because of my past I was always going to live in the depression. 
Wow have I not completely changed my life around?! This feeling is amazing!
There has been so much that I could give credit to and so many people to thank! But I want to take a second to toot my own horn (toot toot 😉). I didn't allow myself to stay in the darkness. I gave myself permission to rise up. Most importantly I forgave myself. Forgiveness is hard in every sense of the word. But forgiving yourself . . . . Damn that's almost impossible. But I did it! 
And now I have the honor of helping other women find that same sense of peace, grace and healing. 
I couldn't do it alone and you don't have to either. I can help you, after all I was there to and I'm on the other side. I have 3 spots open for this very sacred 1:1 space. If you're ready to rise up, heal and start Living EPIC, DM me  so we can get started! 
Sending you so much love and peace 💜✌

Living EPIC has become a huge part of my life. Started as a dream and now I am living it! I have come so far from the lost little girl from 4 years ago. There was so much heaviness and pain I was holding on to then. I thought I deserved it. I thought that God was punishing me. I thought that because of my past I was always going to live in the depression. Wow have I not completely changed my life around?! This feeling is amazing! There has been so much that I could give credit to and so many people to thank! But I want to take a second to toot my own horn (toot toot ). I didn't allow myself to stay in the darkness. I gave myself permission to rise up. Most importantly I forgave myself. Forgiveness is hard in every sense of the word. But forgiving yourself . . . . Damn that's almost impossible. But I did it! And now I have the honor of helping other women find that same sense of peace, grace and healing. I couldn't do it alone and you don't have to either. I can help you, after all I was there to and I'm on the other side. I have 3 spots open for this very sacred 1:1 space. If you're ready to rise up, heal and start Living EPIC, DM me so we can get started! Sending you so much love and peace - 7 months ago

My brother’s 4 year death anniversary was 2 weeks ago and my sister’s 1 year death anniversary is in 5 days. Some days I am overwhelmed with grief. Other days I will try to find a little piece of happiness. The way I cope is by planning for the future. I imagine myself in the future and that this feeling won’t be so overwhelming a year from now. I await the scabs that will cover my wounds. I don’t care if it removes me from the present moment. One of my friends called me the Grief Librarian and that I should create a Zine about my experiences and resources available to cope with trauma. #shaziawilsonlibrarian #adventuresofabookfairy #grief #grieflibrarian #siblings #depressiondoesnotdiscriminate #mentalhealthawareness

As an advocate in many ways for suicide prevention, I felt the need to be sure to put this out there. Chronic depression sometimes holds me back - but I don’t have to let it!

On the days I feel like I'm burning down into a pile of ashes - I remind myself that my survival rate on my worst days is 100% so far. The 2 most important things to me regarding jennsspark is to inspire people and to do so by being honest. Here's a dose of honesty: I'm far from perfect. I made (and continue to make) mistakes in life. Sometimes big ones. I'm learning. I still struggle with depression and anxiety (especially lately), but every day my feet hit the floor I try my hardest to work through it. I slip up with my eating. I have weeks of mediocre workouts. I am really bad about reaching out to people. I tell you these things so you know I'm real. I go through the same things so many of you do. My journey looks amazing (and it has been!), but it hasn't come easy. Keep the spark.. maintain the fire.. grow through what you go through.

Everyday that we shy away from the subject, someone plunges further into a hole, isolating themselves and believing they're freaks. Every minute that we continue to stay silent we lose one more person to the horrors of depression and suicide. Every second that we choose comfort over reality we fail another Anthony or another Kate. Talking about depression is no longer an option, it's a matter of life and death.

RIP to a man whose words and actions influenced so many including myself. He was passionate, down to earth, honest and embracing of the world and everything it had to offer. If only all the love, respect and admiration the world had for him was enough to save him. Let his love of travel, food and culture live on forever. #anthonybourdain

Heartbreaking💔 RIP, Chef. RIP, Kate. “Many lives are not as they appear. Happiness is not the end result of a sum of accomplishments. The person whose wealth/wardrobe/job/talent you wish you had has his or her own struggles, and they could at least equal our own.”

If you've been following me for awhile you know this page is not JUST about my weightloss journey, but also about overcoming mental illness. This week has really pulled at my heart strings with the loss of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to suicide. It's proof that depression does not discriminate. I spent too much of my life living with depression and anxiety, and it's so, so important to me now to be open about it. I was hospitalized twice, spent years medicated, and tried numerous therapists before I found one in my adulthood that actually taught me how to help myself. I just want to shout from the rooftop.. STAY! I remember the hopeless feeling.. that things would never get better, that I had failed at life, and that no one understood me. I am able to admit that with the recent changes in my life.. those feelings try to sneak back in. Old habits die hard. But I'm here and I think I was made to tell people it DOES get better. Not overnight and not without effort.. but it does! Check on the people you love. Do not remain silent. If you're feeling vulnerable - reach out! Call 1-800-273-8255. Message me. You are NOT alone.

My favourite @anthonybourdain quote. If it wasn’t for him I would not of experienced Banh Mi Phuong, Din Tai Fung or Bun Cha Huong. He inspired people to travel and explore cultures through their food showing us that we really are no different from one another. .
