I’m Back!

Hey friends! I am SO sorry this is my first post in a long while! I have to be honest and tell you that this summer has been absolutely crazy! I have a lot of exciting things coming up this year. I am about to open my own hair salon Goldie’s Arrow 🙂 Pat and I are building a house and we are getting married next July. All of these things are such a blessing and I am so grateful, but pairing these life changes with my busiest work season brought me depression and anxiety. It has affected my life in many aspects and really did a number on me the last few months. I know this topic isn’t a favorite for anyone, but I thought if I shared my story maybe it could help someone else!

I couldn’t bring myself to post anything because I felt like putting up images of “me in my cute shoes in a field” was deceiving to anyone reading! I wasn’t in the right mindset to pretend that everything was going peachy keen. After seeing my doctor and talking to those close to me, I found it felt freeing to be honest about what I was going through. In sharing my difficulties I learned that I wasn’t as alone or isolated as thought, and that so many people around me deal with depression, anxiety or both. Mental Health is SO important and I really feel for those who deal with these disorders constantly and severely because it sucks! I’m trying a few methods that have brought me some improvement and I finally feel like the clouds have broken and that little bit of sunshine is starting to shine through! I am still dealing with it, but I feel like after sharing this and being open, I can start to post more of what I love…like my cute shoes while I stand in a field! haha! A big thanks to my support system (family, friends and clients) who comforted me when I really needed it, you are so appreciated!
