Mental Health

I wanted to take a second to again share this company/campaign that is bringing the much closeted topic of mental health to the forefront. 
As someone who has struggled with anxiety/depression, among other things, it is refreshing to see that others have some of the same issues. Varying degrees but still important and in need of help. I wrote about them in June (2015) and I am glad that they are still going strong!
Now they have new temporary tattoos! 
For so long I hid the chaos in my head but have finally learned that being upfront with myself greatly helped. I accepted my mental health and vowed to combat it. While I will always have my anxiety it will not consume me. 
Understanding and accepting these parts of yourself is the first step. It's okay to not be okay. No one is without flaw.
Thanks for listening, I will be making some new dishes soon...I've been in a slump as of late but cooking has always been cathartic! I see apple pie in the future!
