Overcoming Depression {Part 1}: My Story

Thanks for stopping by and joining me in this journey of telling my story of how I have struggled with depression in the past, how I overcame it and how to live a joyful life. Since this is my first post in this "series", please bare with me as I get personal with my story. I hope to be open and honest and at the same time not all over the place so that you are able to follow along easily. I also hope to be a light and encouragement to anyone whom may be going through depression currently.

Short Update & Sneak Peak of Upcoming Blog Series

A lot has happened in my life since I last posted-- I wanted to be more consistent with blogging and had every intention to, but then it just didn't happen. This summer has been so full and busy, and I'm loving every minute of it. The most major event in my life was that I had a breast reduction done. I'm not quite sure if I want to blog about my experience with it (I haven't decided yet), but I will tell you that my life has majorly changed for the better and I am healing quite nicely. To be back pain free and be able to wear tops/dresses that I've never been able to wear before have been so great and I wish I could have done this surgery sooner.

Over the next few weeks I want to get real personal and talk about something you might not always feel open to talking about with others. I think a good amount of women struggle with depression or anxiety at different times in their life. Whether an event happened in their life that brought it on like a death in the family, postpartum depression after having a baby, or it just slowly happened over time because you are not where you want to be in life and you didn't even realize it was happening.
