Mental Health Awareness
To me this plant is a symbol of my life...
offering Hope to those that need it!
The plant symbolizes new life, new opportunities, new growth.
When I moved back into my home, after living with family during my recovery, I bought a baby plant and ordered myself to keep it alive...
paying attention to the life of the plant is synonymous with paying attention to my own life. If I noticed the plant dying, then I was probably slowly falling back into old habits, ultimately leading to my death as well.
I use this plant to make sure I am being present and mindful in all that I encounter.
The plant grows with sunshine, water and love as do I.
In order to move forward, we must continue to nourish our souls with plenty of sunshine, self-love, quality soil and water.
It’s been nine years, my plant is still alive, and even needs a bigger pot in order to continue to grow. The plant can only grow so much in its current pot; it’s roots are maxed out, and soil limited...I am going to be transferring it to a bigger pot, allowing more opportunity to flourish.
(Why do I keep putting it off, the longer I wait, the longer I keep thinking about it but never act on it, the more I take away from it’s potential growth! Stuck in a cycle, never making time to transfer the plant. I’m worried it will die in its new soil.
Just as my plant continues to grow, so do I. Keeping the plant trapped in its current pot keeps its growth potential limited, transporting it to more soil and a bigger pot offers more opportunity for growth, synonymous with life!
Everyday a plant grows, it adds something special to the world, everyday we grow, we also provide something special to the world.
Some see its beauty, some do not, either way, it continues to grow...with sunshine, water, quality soil and love!
Thank you to all the psychologists and psychiatrists making a difference in the world of Mental Health. Each of you provide an opportunity to see from a different perspective. Ultimately, we are responsible for our progress, but you provide the necessary tools! Special thanks to Tina Cottone, Mike Rock and my family ❤️
I’d like to help spread hope to those struggling with Mental Illness.
My baby plants are available, let me know if you want to keep one alive! Find strength in knowing you are not alone!

Shocked, completely and utterly amazed...
Almost nine years ago, my only goal in life was to be happy, to find happy within myself.
At this point, I’m afraid to jinx myself, but I can’t help but continually be amazed at how I’ve been thinking, feeling and behaving! I feel in-control of my off-balanced brain!
Years and years of goal setting, cognitive therapy tools, positive thinking and doing, courageously believing in the possibility of feeling better! It’s happening, recovering!
While actively engaging in life, dealing with the up's and down's along the way.!
It’s a different kind of energy, a different kind of “get up and go,” it’s a peaceful feeling!
I honestly can’t believe it’s really real, but I want to believe it, I hope it continues and for now I’ve made a deal with myself to trust it is what it is and make the best of it!
I truly believe by constantly working to improve, my brain chemistry and the connected nervous system are adjusting and forming new patterns.
Of course, getting to this point has been full of forward and backward movements, but overall forward progress is ultimately made. Learning to recognize triggers, and adjusting as necessary has been a tremendous part of my recovery.
In one word, my goal for 2018 is to be MINDFUL!
I’ve been taking on additional tasks and responsibilities like a champ! Although I’m filling my schedule with more tasks, I’ve been remaining present and enjoying whatever or whom ever I am with.
It's like my cranial massage therapist, Dana, put a spell on me! She didn't, I keep assuring myself!
I simply haven't felt this way, maybe ever!
Cranial therapy, prescription medicine, healthy real food, moderate exercise, reflection and routine all play a significant role in how I am feeling.
FOCUS... Focus.. FOCUS... I worked about two years on improving my ability to focus!
My mental wellness (illness) friends; the pain, sadness, emptiness, anxiousness, compulsiveness, hopelessness, anything you may feel, it’s temporary!
DO NOT LET IT DEFINE YOU! You are in control. You are special in your way, Shine Bright, the world needs your light! Better things are ahead!
Whomever, whatever, negativity surrounds you, it’s not yours to bear, it’s theirs. Don’t let someone else’s hardships impact or determine your future! You happiness belongs to you, you create it! Become the best you!
I’ve really been thinking about this a lot lately. Too often people define themselves by a label, placing themselves prisoner to a title, believing they aren’t cable of improving or becoming better. I’m not really sure why?
We can improve. It’s not okay to not take care of oneself.
Consider what you surround yourself with? Happy positive, helpful, encouraging people or situations? What do you listen to? What do you watch? What do you eat? It all matters.
What you fill your mind with, you become. Fill it with hopes, dreams, and positivity. You will most certainly not always have the best day, but you can make the best of each day by training your brain to find the good.
What you fill your mind with, you become.
Surround yourself with those who lift you up, who make you feel better, who encourage and support you!
Pay no attention to the people who haven’t yet found the positive train, they will either join you at some point, or move on.
Brain chemicals are complicated! Improvement is possible!!! ❤️
As always, please seek help from the professionals!
Behavioral Cognitive Therapy and Psychiatry works for me!
