What You Don’t Know…….1..2..3..4..5

Hello Hello Hello beautiful people !!! Let us all thank God for another day with our loved ones and family members!Since it is the my FAVORITE day of the week, today I decided to do something  random with this post! I decided to answer some tough questions, so you all can get to know me better, not only as a writer/author but as a person.


Question #1: What made you decide to start blogging?

   I really never thought about this question, until now. I have had a blog for a few years now, but I wasn’t as active as I am now. When I started blogging I decided to blog just to have a place to put my ideas, but as I started to understand more about writing, blogging and how things worked. Blogging began to give me my voice back, by allowing me to freely express myself and my gifts with others. Blogging has become a way for me to share my thoughts, struggles, journey, opinions, etc with others. Being able to share those things and just be myself and write what I believe God puts on my heart has given me my voice back, and has made blogging an enjoyable activity for me !


 Question #2: What’s one thing you would like to change about yourself? 

Wow, this question is hard. I would try to change so much, I mean we all have flaws who wouldn’t? But if I had to choose, I would like to change and become more patient in everyday life. Though this seems like a small thing. Patience helps in so many situations in life.


Question #3: What are you most afraid of?

The thing I am most afraid of is, losing the parts of myself I have found, to my mental illness and the lies the world tells me about who and what I’m supposed to be like.


Question #4: What was the best compliment you’ve received?

The best compliment I have received has to be the first time I heard a person tell me my book Words Are Art inspired them and really helped them see things in a new way. This melted my heart, and I was so grateful! I was grateful that one of my readers understood exactly what I was trying to do!


Question #5: What’s the title of the current chapter of your life?

Homework. No Quality Sleep. Peppermint & Acai Bowls.

Make A Difference .

Hello Hello Everyone & Happy Wednesday to you ! I want to take a moment & say thank you to all the individuals that have participated in my survey! Your feedback is very much appreciated and your voice & opinions MATTER !


Please if you haven’t already spare 1-2 minutes to take my quick survey below titled Awareness to help me make a DIFFERENCE in the lives of others!
Please be sure to only take THE SURVEY ONCE .

I can’t thank you all enough for the amazing & honest feedback I have been getting . I really want to improve and see how I can help those people that may need help. I ask all of you to just please take a moment today and say a prayer for me. Pray that God opens my heart more to connect with more people and to not be selfish in anything I do, but to do things out of love for him and for people. Pray that God works through me to help as many people as I can on this journey.

Lately with all the stress I have been experiencing, I have been questioning God and his plan and purpose for my life. I have found myself angry and feeling lost, because of recent symptoms i’ve been experiencing and mental health emergencies with friends. Though I feel as if I have been going through this for so long and there is no end in sight, I just want to say no matter what goes on I will use everything I have to give back and show love and do whatever I can to help others. Lately I have realized I have been so consumed with MY symptoms and MY issues, I have not been the Natasha I want to be. Loving despite everything, devoted to God in all I do. It is as if I have started to lose a piece of myself I believe I had found. The day I am able to accept life for what it is and stop fighting against myself is the day I will be able to love myself unconditionally.


Please today keep me and my family in your prayers and I will do the same for all of you! Again thank you for taking time to read my work! Please continue to give me your feedback so that I can continue to strive to make a difference in the lives of others, because at the end of the day the only thing that matter is Loving God & Loving People. So let’s work together to help make sure we are doing those things DAILY, through the rough days and the good days (:

Let’s not lose sight of the finish line just because it seems impossible to get there today, we will get there how and when God says it’s time. ~ Natasha M.


Have a great day everyone, and if you haven’t already be sure to CONNECT WITH ME:

Mental Health Awareness…

Hello beautiful people & Happy Saturday! How is your Saturday going ? Are you getting  a lot done ? Are you relaxing at the beach? Are you spending a day with family? Or are you binging on a show on Netflix you found? Whatever you are doing today, I hope this post finds you well. I would like to take a moment and give you some insight on what I am up to.


So,  I am currently working on a project involving something I am sure you all know at this point, I am passionate about….. Mental Health and Mental Illness.

I am so passionate about these things not only because of the stigma around it, and how uninformed I feel people are, but because I suffer from mental illness.

Please if you haven’t already spare 1-2 minutes to take this quick survey and help me make a DIFFERENCE!


PLEASE ONLY TAKE THE SURVEY ONCE .

AWARENESS SURVEY LINK


Thank you all for the time you take to read my work, your love & support !

” To truly be myself is to be vulnerable. Everyone is going to have their own opinions of my condition and me sharing the fact I have been diagnosed and am receiving treatment for various mental illnesses. I have fought this battle for a while now. There have been many many times I felt alone and disconnected from my family and the world. I figured no one would understand my depression, my manias, my triggers,etc so I isolated and still do. This is just a part of my story and my journey that I want to share with others that may know someone who may be going through the same thing. Reach out to them, let them know they are not alone. Don’t judge, make jokes, or assume things you don’t know, stop judging people simply by what you see. We all have a story behind our smiles, and we are all just people. I am a person that wants to make a difference, I don’t care if it makes me look weak, fragile, or if people look down on me. I am tired of it, I am ready to take a stand and do something different, so people can become more informed about just how important mental health is, and how REAL AND DEVASTATING mental illness can be. If you are suffering in silence, please get help, you are not alone. I see you. I know your pain is real. ”

The Bracelet and The Unaccepted Words

You have to know that you are good enough and worth it. Once you master belief in yourself no one can steal that love from you. 

~ Alex Elle


I sat in class hearing different voices speak. I sit straight up in my chair, so I am not slouching and paying for it later on, when my back is hurting. As I sit straight up, keeping posture in mind, I look down at my black ripped jeans and my bright-colored pink shirt. I sigh. My attention quickly shifts, in the corner of my eye,I catch a glimpse of my silver Pandora bracelet hanging from my left arm. I turn the bracelet around so the charms are laying on my wrist where I can see them. Immediately, I look at the silver  heart charm and read it, you are so loved . I pay close attention to the letters and words, and read it again,whispering to myself, “you are so loved.” . On the charm, the word you has a heart where the letter o is, and some of the letters are written in cursive. It was like I was seeing these words on the charm for the first time.  I swallow. You see, this silver heart charm was the first charm I had on my bracelet. 5 months earlier, my parents bought me the charm for my birthday. These 4 words were the words I stared at the most, but it didn’t matter. No matter how hard I fought, no matter how much I read those words. I couldn’t believe them.


My mind denied the words over and over again. As much as I wanted to believe with every part of my mind, body, and soul, I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to. Me loved? Oh that doesn’t matter, I thought. Voices outside my head began distracting me from my thoughts, I snapped back into the present, and continued to listen to the voices that filled the classroom. I looked around, grabbed my pink notebook off the wooden table, got out of my seat, and exited the room as quickly as my feet would move. I looked down the hallway searching for a place to sit and relax for a moment, and there it was. A black leather chair I could sit in,relax, and collect myself by further investigating my thoughts. I walked to the chair and sat down. I opened my pink notebook and began writing, trying to make sense of my previous thoughts.


Y❤u are so loved, I thought. But am I really, I asked myself ? Too bad for me, I didn’t have spare time to actually be sitting here wasting time doing what I love, dissecting my thoughts through writing. I  needed to be back in class. I took a deep breathe, got up, and began to walk back to the classroom. I looked down one last time and read the words, you are so loved. I continued to walk. I questioned myself further as I walked down the hallway, when will I believe ? I opened the classroom door, walked back to my seat, and began to let my thoughts wander on the words I couldn’t accept. My professor’s voice began to fill the room once again and class went on.


The words you are so loved, cause my mind to fill with thoughts of uncertainty. Why were these words so hard for me to accept? Why did this concept seem impossible for me to understand? The thought that someone actually loved me, seemed like it didn’t matter. I was convinced that loving others was most important, but what about others loving me? Or even more important what about me loving myself?  It is as if, I have built a wall with a door around my heart. I open the door to pour love out where and when I am able to. But the moment someone tries to give love back to me I close the door, and I close my heart. The thought of me never accepting those 4 words, haunts me.




I hope everyone is doing awesome this week ! I would love to hear about everyone’s week ? What fun things do you have planned for the weekend? I will be doing homework and hopefully more writing ! I’ve missed blogging ❤ !

Say Something…

I have sang the song Say Something on the smule (sing) application quite a few times , but I am happy I finally got to do a cover of the acoustic version!🎤🎶🎼 Singing is such a destressor for me. This song really touches my heart every time I sing it, because for what seemed like forever I felt like I had given up on myself and my well being. I had sunk into depression and let that, anxiety and my mental illness diagnosis really take over my life and it was like I had given up on myself. I felt I needed to say something but instead I was giving up on my loved ones because I felt like even if I told them the truth of how I felt & what was going on, they wouldn’t accept or understand me. But most importantly I had given up on myself because all I wanted was to just be okay and it seemed impossible. I never realized how hard it was to say to people “I’m not okay, and I need help.” Gosh for so long I felt like couldn’t tell anyone, and it was eating at me. My mind screamed for HELP but my voice was silent . It was miserable back during this time . Life isn’t perfect but I’ve just gotten so tired of not using my voice and today I decided to say something and speak about my journey and struggles.
I am so thankful that today despite all I have been through in the last 4 years, I can say I am making progress to getting and feeling better overall. We all struggle with issues, and I never try to share my journey to get people to feel sorry for me. We all have been through something at some point in our lives. I use writing as an outlet to help me express myself and to make sense of what I’m going through. I use writing to show people despite how much the world, people , and illness try to tear you down there is still hope. Getting better is an option and is possible. Overcoming is real! Remember that and stay motivated , God has your back and troubles don’t last always. I know that now more than ever.

Check out me singing “Say Something (Acoustic Cover)” on Smule:

Say Something

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. ~ Confucius

 

We continuously learn, so we grow as people . Our perspectives change and we cope better so we do better, because we get to a point where we know better. Open your hearts to learn, always. ❤️☀️ ~ Natasha M
