MANTRA MEANING: Keep going

One morning in 1982, a bright 17 year-old girl opened a rejection letter from her dream college. In the following years, she lost her mother and miscarried her first child. Her husband was abusive and after just a year of marriage, she was a divorced, single mother suffering from severe depression. She relied on welfare to make ends meet and at 30, she contemplated suicide..But something inside her told her to keep going. She knew if she did, it would work out..At 31? She published her very first book. That woman was J.K. Rowling, the wildly successful author and creator of the Harry Potter franchise. Feeling the full weight of the downs that life had to offer, this incredible woman kept going through it all and was able to share her talent with the world..KEEP GOING is for the woman who is in it right now. Who feels like life just keeps piling its blows in a heap on top of her, and feels like it could just crush her if she let it..Link to shop in bio. 5% of net proceeds goes to @mentalhealthamerica #keepgoing #IChooseBeauty

BEYOND THE BEAUTY: The healing power of words

I’ve always had a thing for words. From the time I was a little girl inseparable from the E. E. Cummings book my dad gave me to my career as a journalist, words have always had a special place in my heart..So I suppose it’s no surprise that it was words that came to my rescue a few years ago..When I was at the worst with my depression, I remember so desperately looking for the right words. The ones that 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..I took screenshots of inspirational quotes, bought a ton of coping books, and hung art filled with positive messages. What I finally clung to – and still return to – are the words I learned during my therapy. They kept me going when I wanted to stop, brought me strength on days I felt too weak to get out of bed, and gave me hope that things really would get better..Every session, I wrote down the coping statements as I learned them:.Hold on.Focus on the good.Breathe.Pages and pages of notes that last year turned into the Notes to Self collection. I wanted to share them with you on t-shirts, coffee mugs and pillows. I want the bright colors to lift your spirits and the words to give you strength, peace and light..And I want the healing to spread. For every purchase from the Notes to Self line, I Choose Beauty will donate 5% of the net proceeds to @mentalhealthamerica to educate the public about mental illness and wellness..Most importantly – if you’re depressed or know someone who is, please get help. Therapy saved my life, and it could be the beginning of your journey to healing. #mentalhealthmatters #IChooseBeauty
