My pride shirt this year 🏳️‍🌈 Project Semicolon is very special to me so when I found this shirt I just had to get it. A couple of years ago I heard about #projectsemicolon when I was reading about suicides among #lgbt youth and different outreach programs. “A semicolon is used when an author could've chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life”. No matter what other people may think or say, never forget how much you matter. #pride #pride2018 #awareness #youmatter #lgbtq

i struggle with putting others so much before me it makes me even more sad in life. it’s hard. so please don’t do that to yourself and care for yourself first. don’t feel guilty because you need self care. specially when you’re super sad in life and can’t take it don’t take others burdens upon yourself. ~anonymous co owner

I was asked recently why I share so many posts regarding mental health via TWLOHA, The Mighty, The Semicolon Project, etc. on my personal social media accounts. My answer: To educate, to spread awareness, and to bring people hope. When I first began experiencing mental health I had no idea what was going on. I had no idea what depression was, what anxiety was, I had no idea what brain chemical deficiencies/malfunctions were, what they could make you do, think, and crave; I thought I was going crazy. I was fifteen. No one had ever talked to me about mental health. My friends didn’t know anything about it. I didn’t understand. They didn’t understand. I was alone. It was a long, difficult road learning everything on my own. Many mistakes were made. Things could’ve went very differently for me had I known about mental health beforehand. A lot of setbacks could have been avoided. So, why do I advertise mental health as much as I do? I do so in hopes that I can save someone from having to go through the same learning process struggles that I went through. If I can help prepare even one person for those difficulties I’ll have done the job I feel I am called to do. If I can help one person learn from my experiences, that is all I want.

If you know my story, you’ll know I never thought I’d be in my late twenties, killing it with my own business, while working social work jobs on the side. My story could have ended when I was in my late teens and early twenties, but because the Universe wasn’t done with me here I am. Late twenties, loving my life. Don’t give up. It gets better. #26andkillingit #businesswoman #indepentwoman #smallbusinessowner #chaoticconsignments #twloha #recoveryqueen #recovery #lifeisbeautiful #hangon #gethelp #projectsemicolon

So as we near the end of Pride Month 2017, I thought I would share my tattoo that I got two months ago on my left wrist thanks to the amazing Brad at @kustomekulture . 
The tattoo signifies the electrical current of the ups and downs of life in rainbow colours that represents who I am. There is a short break in the current in the yellow…. where there is a semi-colon as part of Project Semi-Colon to signify that my story isn’t over, where I broke apart but luckily my story did not end where I thought it had, where the electrical current then begins again, as my life kept going despite the struggles and the pain. 
I’m proud of who I am and you should be too. Our stories aren’t over, they’re just beginning. My internal life electrical current may fluctuate between the highs and the lows, but I keep going.

I know it's late ... but those that know me .. know I prefer to work late 🦉 #nightowl .
Anywhooo just wanted to say sorry I haven't been around recently ... been really struggling with my anxiety depression these past few weeks and just haven't wanted to do anything at all really. Those that suffer with it will know what I mean...but thankfully I feel myself getting a little stronger mentally day by day and even managed to create a few little things tonight.
In awareness of depression and anxiety struggles I've created these little semicolon (;) butterfly earrings. Hope you like them 😘

All finished and I am in LOVE!!!! Tim did such an amazing job. The anchor with the orange flowers for my aunty sharon and her battle against kidney and pancreatic cancer and the music notes for Nate. Thank you @ajeezy303 for telling me he was going to be there. #girlswithtattoos #lovemytattoos #fuckcancer #purposeandvalue #projectsemicolon #denvertattooconvention @denvertattooartsconvention @projectsemicolon @timmartin_tattoo

Surprised a few with this, 4 weeks ago. It’s my reminder to push forward and not let past events or depression define my life. The feathers are for my babies. #projectsemicolon

Some people don't know why I have this tattoo. #projectsemicolon


@xtremeinktattoowc thanks for this awesome. @rjtattoo thanks you my guy for being an awesome tattoo artist and giving my first tat.

This Fathers Day was different for us. If you’ve been following our journey, you know that Nicks dad took his own life the day after Christmas. I’ve been in constant prayer for Nick, myself and the kids... I learned years ago something I use frequently- I pray my prayer and then I ask God that ‘...if the answer is NO, that he help us understand why and to trust His reasoning.’ We prayed incessantly for his dad the month before all of this; but Gods answer was no. At the funeral, we were overwhelmed with the understanding that he went from feeling unlovable here on a Earth, to the most breathtaking, unconditional love of our Heavenly Father... the BEST love.
As we pray for further understanding and work through this year of firsts, I knew Fathers Day would be a rough one. I have been trying to plan time for Nick to be with people that have known him for years to live in good memories and feel those rather than loss.
One of the hardest parts to see past is all the time Roland lost with our kids. They lost out on so many memories and it breaks our hearts. Taking them to his grave up on the mountain was a lot to handle emotionally. We both broke down as the kids ran around and talked to pap.
I’m thankful we had that day up there together and that Nick was surrounded by Pap’s family the past few days.
I don’t know if it gets easier. I know God is at work, always. So we pray and wait... And we know that we would do anything to prevent anyone else from going through this. 💗 ;

meu passado ; não determina ; quem sou ; meus erros ; não definem ; meu caráter ; meu subconsciente ; tem segredos ; meu consciente ; tem traumas ; minha agressividade ; tem medo ; minha tristeza ; tem nome ; meu sorriso ; tem disfarce ; minha expressão ; tem coragem ;

Eu? Apenas uma alma no meio de tudo isso.

The thing is when someone truly decides to take their own life; you can’t stop them, it’s only a matter of time. So just love them while their here, even if we’re hard to love, time is the only thing we never get back. ————————
