My desire is to help people.
I have had many ideas and concepts about how I want to go about this over the past 2 years. Everything from books, to online communities, to interactive journals, to personal coaching, among other things.
The struggle I keep having is the little voice inside my head tells me I don't have enough experience or credentials to actually do any of those things when it comes to being a life coach or an author or whatever else.
I'll touch more on this in another email, but the one thing I KNOW I have authority to speak about is my journey with depression and mental health. (The little voice, btw - is the depression.)
And oddly enough, that has been the one thing I don't talk about that often.
It's sort of like I forget that I struggled with it for so long.
And obviously, I still have rough days, I don't think there is a cure all for depression. But the landscape inside my head is so drastically different from what it was even 3 years ago, that I think I just forget.
So, this has been coming up on my heart for a few days now. A new buddy of mine on IG talks a lot about his battle with mental health and he inspired me to start sharing. Then I got an incredibly raw and powerful response to my email yesterday from one of my favorite people about her battle with depression and that was the kicker I needed to just do the damn thing.
So, I am doing an Instagram Live to talk about all things depression and anxiety. It will be Sunday, November 4 @10pm EST.
I will share what I have learned that has helped me tremendously.
I will share tips and tricks I use when the familiar feelings and thoughts start creeping back in.
I will be offering an abundance of love and encouragement because those are my favorite things ever.
I hope you'll tune in. I hope you'll let a friend know who might benefit from it.
So, anyway, I'll probably put some good effort into this mental health thing for a bit... at least the next few days.
Countdown to Aus is on and I can feel the anticipation rising.
