It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. After all we’re only human. However, I think it is imperative that we talk about our blessings more than our trials because it does affect your entire demeanor. Being negative not only hurts you, but it also has a domino effect on all the people around you. When you speak positively you encourage others and build yourself up in the process.

I know my blog has focused a lot on how I deal with depression. Some people may perceive that as dwelling on the negative. I beg to differ. Writing about my depression is my way of taking back control of my emotions by not allowing them to consume me. Being open about my struggles gives me a stronger sense of self and hopefully inspires others to share their truth.

I am truly grateful to have a platform to speak openly about my experiences. I appreciate everyone that has read, shared, or commented on my blog. It makes my day every time I see a notification on my phone about my blog. It is quite surreal to see that several people across the globe are reading my work. You have all touched my heart and words cannot express how you’ve enriched my life. Free speech is important because everyone has the right to voice their opinion. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris and all the friends and families of the victims.
