5 Ways My Mental Health Issues Have Positively Impacted My Life


May is Mental Health Awareness month which is very important to me! Having dealt with mental health issues since I was 15, I want to do my part in spreading awareness, acceptance and perhaps help even just one person who is going through a tough time. I’ve written a few posts about my issues but today I’m sharing a very special piece that I wrote over on Glitter Guide. I feel very lucky and fortunate to work and write for such an accepting company that wanted to publish this post. I hope you enjoy it!

Hello Monday!

We got a bunch more stuff done on our place this past week as well as got our new Lulu & Georgia rug and our Target bar cart – both of which I’m obsessed with! We are also almost done with our window seat/ breakfast nook which I can’t wait to share with you. I’ll be sharing more photos of our place in the next week or so!

It wasn’t all work this week – I got to the beach everyday (sometimes twice a day) and even though it was pretty much June gloom all week, the weather cleared up on Friday and was absolutely gorgeous all weekend! On Saturday night we walked down the street to Coyote Grill which is a fun mexican restaurant by the ocean. We sipped margaritas and had chips and guacamole as we watching an absolutely stunning sunset. It is just so surreal that we could just walk down the street to this. I just feel so lucky – this place makes me so happy!

On Sunday, we decided to go for a hike which is literally a few streets over from our place. It was such  beautiful day and we had such a nice time! Nellie came with us too which was fun. She loved it but got a little hot and tired at the end so we turned back a little earlier than planned. I decided to do some cooking for the week and then we made some delicious salads which we ate outside on the patio. We can’t wait to do more with our outdoor space, do some grilling and entertaining!

Hope you had a nice weekend!
