When I created my I Choose Beauty designs, I intentionally made them using the healing power of words. I believe the right words can help you hold on when you feel like your world is slipping through your fingers, bring you peace when you’re at war with yourself, and comfort you when you wish the hurting would just stop.

KEEP GOING is another mantra that rescued me when I was at my worst with depression. It was such a struggle to do anything, even the things I loved. That’s what depression does to you. On some days, it took all I had just to get out of bed. But I knew I had to find the strength to keep going.

Both your body and your mind need consistent exercise for your overall fitness. Train your brain to reframe negative self-talk, to see the good, to be grateful.
Focus on the good… especially through the bad times.
Things will get better. Hold on.
It’s easy to take it all for granted – especially the small things.
Wanting more, versus being grateful for what you’ve got: it’s a modern-day conundrum.
“I’m sorry, but we have to let you go.”
They tell you he’s in a better place. That everything happens for a reason. That good will prevail. That time heals all wounds. Frankly, you’ve been having a little trouble buying it.
