Well I did it, I got out of my dark tunnel and stepped out on faith. I was a bit nervous because this was a long time coming, but I did it. I set my mind up to do it and I did. This may seem a little silly to others, but not to me. I was in a dark tunnel for so long, I didn’t know what day looked like. My house was dark, my life was dark, and my mind was too. Now, I can see some progress in myself . Therapy and my medicines have been a big help, I’m able to focus without worrying about the ‘what if’s’. Today I made myself proud, I’m just as happy as can be. Its been a long time coming, with my continued therapy and coping classes, I should be a new me soon. I’m in no rush, just want to enjoy what it feels like for once to be in the life of the living again…..chat soon.
Good Saturday all, I’m up and excited that today I finally get to share my news with you all. Yesterday was a complete diaster, but I remained calm and prepared myself for today. So you all know that I have been spreading the word about mental health in the black community and I wanted to take my word further. I have designed an app in the Apple store so they you will have my blog and resoures on the go! Yes, no more waiting for my email or if you just hate recieving so many notifications. Now you can download my app and share it with any family, friend, co-worker, or spouse. When you don’t no what to say, BAM, just show they my app. Sorry I don’t have it in the Google store, it will be there next week. App name : Olivia,Blackgirldown

Happy Friday all, I’m up and full of energy today, don’t know where it came from so not going to complain. So today is the day I reveal some of the plans and projects I’ve been working. Just super excited about that, but you know something had to happen this morning:( All of a sudden my like new Iphone 7 plus decided to stop working. Oh yeah just cut off and wouldn’t let me get in, now I didn’t panic because I know that was the devil just trying to stop my progress. NOT!! I finally got it working and soon I will be bringing my news to you all. I’m super proud of myself for staying focus and when it look like it wouldn’t work, I kept on moving. I didn’t get discourage and didn’t have my usual meltdown, I just moved to the next project. It’s been a long time since I have been happy about anything. After much reading and planning, I have decided to get my message out about mental health the way I want to. I’m not like others and have always did my own thing, so I’m going to do what works for me. With that being said………I’ll be sharing my new projects with you all shortly. Chat soon…
Building confidence can be pretty hard on its on, but try having a depressed mind all the time. Today as I was preparing the things I need to roll out my BIG news on Friday, I had to step back and take a look around. Is this me? Am I singing? Yes, it’s me! The half new me, for once today I had the confidence to look at myself and my projects and say, “damn girl, this shit cute”. LOL I look in the mirror and told myself that, “I am good enough”, “I will get my life back on track”! Wow and I actually believe it too. I spent so many months in a dark hole, the only thing I could see it’s darkness. Nowww…I can see some light at the end of that hole. I feel like I really could see things improving, without my other part of the brain taking over. So here’s to the old me who didn’t think I would ever see the day, the day that some confidence would come creeping back into my soul. Here’s to the things I write on my vision board to help me slowly get back to normal. Here’s to a really fabulous woman who got knocked down, but got up out that bed and sought the help I needed to put me back on the right track! Although my journey isn’t over and please believe I’m so not cured, I like to think of it like a really really long cold. I just keep taking the meds until it’s all gone, lol! So I will get back to my secret projects…chat soon loves!!!
