Sometimes you have to lose your mind to come to your senses. – Dan Millman
May is Mental Health Month. If you have ever struggled with mental health issues – or are struggling right now – I just want you to know that you are not alone; you are loved; there are people who care about you; and there are people (ahem… me, for instance) who have been through what you’re going through and have come out the other end of it in one piece – wiser, more empathetic, and more conscious than before.
We’re all in this together.
“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.” – Kathryn Sockett, from The Help
- Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.
- Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.
- – John Greenleaf Whittier
