you matter

This means all of you – your physical and mental health!

These posts get pretty vulnerable. I don’t know which is more challenging for most people… keeping up with their physical or mental health. Both seem to discourage me, and they always have. I’m certain, though, that they kind of work together. When my body is not cared for, my mind takes a big hit too, and vise versa. And I want to feel my very best so that I can be ready for God to use me however He wants. So I’ve started a journey of self-care, trying to make small changes, and sharing my tips and embarrassing moments along the way. Seriously, the successes and moments of wanting to give up completely. Join me for some laughs and maybe even a little bit of encouragement.

If you are experiencing distress or if you are considering hurting yourself, please know there is help. You are not alone. You matter. Call someone to talk for free at 1-800-273-8255 or text 741741. It’s okay to ask for help.

Mental health is a topic that I am extremely passionate about, and this is an outlet for me to share my story with people who might need to hear it. Being married to someone makes mental health a little more complex, but J and I are both learning to balance our needs with sacrificial love. Also, J has really opened my eyes to the equal important of physical health. So I’ve started caring about what I put in my body, as well as what I put in it. Remember, God created us in His likeness. And He had the whole picture in mind. Let’s not forget to be kind to ourselves.
