"If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then Autumn would be its magic hour." - @victoriaericksonwriter • Oh, how I've waited for you to arrive...our friend Summer melted my soul with hot, pain-filled trials. Reshape me, mold me...I am now putty in your hands.🖤 • #autumn #fallequinox #newbeginnings #sunset #nofilter #cloudspotting #thereislight #awakening
The wannabe #bulletjournaler in me came out in #church today. The great sermon at @hopenewbraunfels today was a reminder that despite all the areas we are “wannabe’s”, we are still worthy of love, kindness, and acceptance. . . . #sundaysermon #storyteller #amazinggrace #journaling #thereislight
If you break your arm, you wear your cast with honor. You show it off, get people to sign it. You aren’t scared for others to see. You ask for help when it prevents you from doing something. People might bring you dinner. It’s a big deal. I long for a day that mental illness can be seen the same way. A broken brain is no different than a broken arm. No one brings you dinner. No one wants to sign your cast. No one even wants to acknowledge your broken arm. Can’t you just be happy? Why can’t you just do this one simple thing? It’s not that simple. Words to describe a mental illness to those going through it can include emptiness, feeling alone, Darkness, chaos, messy, whirlwind, despair. This can all be felt all at once. It is going to take one hell of a cast to cover up those broken feelings. Those who have contemplated suicide often feel like their broken is too much for the rest of the world to bare. Their darkness, their mess is spreading to others. I have experienced these feelings. It had nothing to do with removing my own cast, but everything about preventing my family to have to lift it for me since it was getting far too heavy. Everyone is here for a reason. We might not know what that reason is as of yet. But it is there. Like a broken arm, mental illnesses can get better. You might always need to wear a wrist brace, but he weight of that cast will be removed. The heaviness can go away. If you have been there, know I love you. I love your broken. If you cannot personally relate to this, take it to heart that it is much more complicated than simply wishing to be better. Educate yourself. Learn how to be a better support person. Sometimes they are just holding on for someone. Be that someone. #mentalhealth #postpartumdepression #itgetsbetter #semicolonproject #broken #mentalillness #mentalhealthrecovery #thereislight

He told me “ have the day you feel you need to have” and despite my tears and heartache he loved me because of it. You are the good to my bad days.

Sometimes when you’re in a dark place you think you’ve been buried, but you’ve ACTUALLY been planted 🌱. Stay encouraged my friend.
Hitting Rock bottom was the best thing that has ever happened to me. About a year ago, I hit rock bottom emotionally, financially, mentally. I had no choice but to face my battles I went absolutely crazy lost myself my future career with LAPD. I went to jail and there was nothing I could do about it so that’s when I was ready to end my life I had no reason to live anymore. But at the bottom I realized how far off I was. It was those dark moments of despair that my dysfunctional behaviors had been revealed. That’s when I finally realized it was time to let go of everything and start over because I realized nothing was working anyways. So that’s when I also decided I needed to stop drinking alcohol 🍺 completely. I let go of the old so new things and people could come into my life. I accepted full responsibility for all the outcomes in my life. Hitting rock bottom woke me up this is why I am so grateful today for all that I have and I am able to smile big. This is why I started a blog called @purpose_bracelets so I can reach out to millions because the darkes moments in life are what gives you courage, wisdom so I am now ready to spread my wings and fly this is the gift I got from hitting rock bottom. #loa #happiness #mytestimony #mystory #ihaveapurpose #rockbottom #blessed #newlife #newlifestyle #thereislight #selflove #soberasfuck #photography #truestory 💯 #lgbtq #makingadifference #newchances #stay #iamenough #soberissexy #soberwomen #warior
You know, the last 2 years have been some of the hardest of my life. And the last couple weeks have taken a number out of me! In the last couple days some really amazing people in my life have text me these two separate texts... I am thankful for the small crew I have building me back up when I am weak. I love and appreciate you more then I am able to express. #grattitude #icaniwillandimgonna #thereislight #iamblessed

Wow this was taken 9 years ago. I had a 1 year old, was a single mum and in the grasp of the worst depression that nearly destroyed me, I had an eating disorder that no-one knew about - I hated myself and my life so much and even looking back, I can see the pain etched in my face. I am so glad I am not this woman anymore. . . . . . . #thereislight #depression #overcomingdepression #flashback #healing #singlemum #dvsurvivor

I'm convinced our kids come into our lives the times we need it most. They are in no way a mistake even if it happens unexpectedly. Looking at these innocent faces when we can barely hold ourselves together is our reminder that they see no mistake. They don't see failure and inadequacy. I think that's the most beautiful part. Can you imagine? This is just how God sees us. That alone gives me the push to get through my hard days.
Life ebbs & flows. Change is something that can be relied on as nothing stays the same. Change of situation, change of perspective, change in emotions. Have faith that darkness is not here to stay. It may only be a thought away. Be kind to yourself. And as always seek professional help if life is overwhelming. 🙏www.acalmplce-reiki.melbourne🙏 . . . . . #calm #healing #holistic #innerpeace #komyoreiki #meditation #melbourne #melbournelife #melbournewellness #melbourneyoga #mindbody #mindfulness #peace #positivity #reiki #reikihealing #reikimelbourne #sallywain #restore #selfcare #spiritual #hope #changeforthebetter #thereislight #faithtrust #lifechanges
There is .... 💡 LIGHT 💡 but... that just means... a new tunnel! New tunnel, new goals. Today marks {30 weeks}, 10 weeks to go (give or take). ::: This is all new to me.

My mind is whirling and twirling with some fun ideas for the final stretch...won’t you join me? October 1st is approaching and I want everyone I know to join me in this {last leg} before the next tunnel. ::: Drop me an IM or shoot me an email 📧 kendravirgil@gmail.com and we will get you added to the list. And be sure to check out the {bump} moves and all the craziness around here as we prepare for countdown 🚀 @kendra_virgil ::: ::: #giveityourall #leavetherest #30weekspregnant #thisisnewtome #teamspirit #momof2boys #creativemindsatwork #whenicantsleep #pregnancycravings #blueday #cleanyourclutter #tunnelvision #thereislight

My house is a safe zone. The kettle can be on in minutes, or if you prefer a beer, bourbon, vodka or wine, that's easily sorted. I will do my best to be available... you are always welcome! Nobody is alone, there’s always someone willing to listen, go for a walk with you, watch a movie or just sit with you. #itsoktonotbeok #MentalHealthAwareness #ruok #imhere #talktome #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthisreal #beenthere #itshard #hitrockbottom #thereislight #depression #anxiety #love

I’ve been there before, I guarantee you that a lot of people in your life have been there before. . It is ok to ask for help, or even just talk!

I’ve always found it takes a hell of a lot more good to change one little piece of evil. Although it’s difficult, it’s worth it. BE GOOD.

The end of EVERY season is like a New Year for me. Looking at the end of every season as a new beginning keeps me more motivated to continuously keep working on myself. Giving myself a shorter amount of time to achieve REASONABLE goals helps me CHOOSE HAPPY. Happiness ISNT a destination, but moments in your life that bring you the most peace, calmness, and joy. You can choose to be happy even though it’s not the easiest... it’s worth it. I CHOOSE HAPPY. Please & Thank You! . . . . . #goodvibesonly #summersover #newvibes #newbeginnings #ichoosehappy #quotes #new #keepgoing #thereislight #health #selflove #reflection #ineedmoremeditation #yoga #keepgoing #choosehappy #ichoosehappiness #newyear #newseasons
Summer for so many people (and younger Jalen) is/was a time where you’re supposed to be your happiest. Schools out, beach days and bbq’s around every corner, & break out the shorts and summer dresses. As I’ve gotten older (& I feel pretty old) summer only reminds me that it’s too hot, my electricity bill sky rockets and I’m dying for a cool breeze. I’ve let summer turn me cynical. BUT NOW, Fall I declare good vibes only, no bad vibes! Please & Thank You! . . . . . #goodvibesonly #summersover #newvibes #newbeginnings #ichoosehappy #quotes #new #keepgoing #thereislight #health #selflove #reflection #ineedmoremeditation #yoga #keepgoing
Just wanted to share a bit of pmdd hope.. it’s taken me four days to get my head around my new medical adventure. I’m still very much spell bound. But after a long 11 months of pure pmdd hell. Physically and mentally. On Friday the 7th I had a much awaited gynaecologist appointment at Aberdeen ARI. Went in fully expecting to have to explain myself but Dr Hemming did all the talking. I left with a plan and a decapeptyl injection in my bum. Plan being injection every four weeks with add back Hrt at month 3, then once hrt is settled, hysterectomy. So menopause take 2, bring it on. The energy levels have been through the roof, I feel alive!! I’m still a bit numb that it went so well. So after loosing 24 years to Pmdd, and being especially ill the last two years. I told myself Saturday was a new day! I woke up feeling amazing!!First time in years. Started CBT on Monday morning, socialised with new people, walked the dog, helped my chum move house. But mostly I’ve been a full time Mum, my teenage person bear hugged me today. Just magic! 🌈👍🏻😂 A pmdd good day 4-5k steps, a Lucy Good day....Long may it continue! Fellow Pmdd gals stay strong! I know this is only the start of a new journey but I’m ready!! 🌈😍 cant wait to enjoy it with good folk around me. Thanks mins 😘 #truestory #pmddsupport #pmddawareness #1in20pmdd #thereislight #viciouscycle #yournotalone #pmddwillnotwin #fitbitsteps
There is light at the end! #journey #education #thereislight
Today is WORLD suicide prevention day! • Not even a year ago I found myself in the darkest place I’d ever been, sure I’d been depressed before, but never so broken, dark, confused, ashamed, embarrassed, I literally did not want to live another day! Idk why I made it through, but I do know this, I will live the rest of my life sharing my story in hopes it will help someone else! • If you are depressed and you have no where to go or feel like you have no one to talk to, I’m here! Reach out! I will listen! I promise you are not alone! You are never alone! • Mental Illness is not easy. It’s a daily struggle! But I promise YOU ARE WORTH IT! You are worth every breathe, you are worth every ounce of joy, you are WORTH LOVE! #suicideprevention #loveyourself #sbg #reachout #thereislight #dontforgetwhoyouare
A friendly reminder that maybe, just maybe, you are yet to experience THAT moment which will change your life forever... and for better... and for the best... #nevergiveup #itsokaynottobeokay #seekhelp #worldsuicidepreventionday #thereislight #youarenotalone #mentalhealth

Aaftaab 🌞 LOOP MODE. Torn between the music and lyrics. Soul nourishments. Thank you @keer2097 for always finding the right song at the right time. And for sharing the lyrics knowing I won't understand them without translation 😂 #aaftaab #favsong #keepsmegoing #localtrain #thereislight
In the darkness, there is light. It may be faint, it may be far away, but it is there. Tonight, I believe this whole heartedly. That God persists in the dark. That even when we are surrounded, even if we cannot see, it will not be like this forever. God simply won’t allow it. #inthedarkness #darkness #therewillbelight #lightyourcandle #becauseHeisgood #BecauseHeisfaithful #myGodsaves #lightinthedarkness #shine #faith #believing #higherpower #thereislight #belief
Every day isn't perfect, some days it is hard to deal, depression wins. Some days tears happen, sometimes the heartache is unavoidable, but the key is to know, even on those days, that you are loved. You are valued. You are worth every thing you are fighting for. You deserve every single wild dream you can think of. The bad moments, days, weeks, months, and years don't last forever. I know it might seem like they will, but I am telling you, you are strong enough to make it through. So from my off day to yours, cheers. Ride the wave and keep moving. Make yourself believe you are worthy. #selfcare #self #selfie #selfworth #snapchat #snapme #snap #filter #snapfilters #depression #anixety #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #youcandothis #yourjourney #youareworthit #youareworthy #takecareofyourself #keepmovingforward #ridethewave #thereislight #yougotthis
