Happy #mentalhealthMonday and Spring Equinox!

Hope all my lovely readers are doing well or, at the very least, working on it as I am doing every day myself. While I’m not in the best of spirits ‘mood wise’ right now, (things have been pretty rough recently), I’m grateful to be able to notice and address it myself – means I still have a handle on things, so all is not lost. ‘Tis the season of growth, renewal and newness, so here’s to trusting God to come through with an awesome demonstration of universal alignment.

How Sandra Thomas – over-achiever, wife and mum discovered her depression (Guest post)

Hello light beams,

Today’s post was written by Sandra Thomas, wife, mother and human resources executive who in her own words shares her unavoidable tryst with her mental health. Having done everything right for years, she was pretty much a textbook case of ‘high-functioning depression’ – something that shocked many and re-introduced her to herself. She will be a regular columnist here on my blog, and I’m honoured she chose my platform to aid in raising awareness about this very serious issue. Read on to learn more about her experience and the valuable lessons she’s learned on her journey.

Love, light and blessings,

— Tami

Seeing the look on my face, she took mercy on me and told me to take some time to think on it. I left her office with a range of emotions, pondering this simple question that would haunt me for a very long time.
