…You will find candid recounts of my own experiences with mental illness as well as information, resources and tips to help with mental health challenges; wellness /mindfulness and interviews with West Indians (most of whom have their own mental health challenges or experiences) positively impacting the world.
I primarily write and curate the posts myself with occasional cameos from other writers. Initially, this blog was started on Blogspot in 2007 as a place to explore my feelings, thoughts and experiences while simultaneously practicing my writing and getting feedback. It was, and still is, quite cathartic for me. Since then it has blossomed into a platform through which I also encourage people to live inspired, empowered, purposeful lives.
Though I do post a bit haphazardly or go off schedule sometimes, my posting days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Check in for the following posting structure:
- Monday – Mental health
- Wednesday – Wellness
- Friday – Focus i.e. interviews and reviews (related to mental health/illness and general wellness/emotional intelligence)
READ MORE OF MY WORK
I’m currently writing a book called Hard Gal Fi Dead: Musings, Poems, Notes to self; if you want to hear more about that and get exclusive sneak peeks plus more good stuff I put out, you can jump to my mailing list/newsletter here and sign up!
I’ve had some articles go viral so far, A Day In The Life Of A Jamaican Lesbian was wildly successful—my most popular to date. We are not selfish: A view from the inside of suicide is still being widely shared; and my interviews with Instagram model/educator/advocate Aisha Thalia (part 1 & part 2) are still doing really well too. Hopefully there will be lots more milestones to celebrate, I’m working on it! 🙂
