A platform to change the way we think.

Suicide - Let's start talking about it.

It is time to make suicide part of the conversation. Please share to others. You really never know who might watch it and ultimately save their life. 🗣Look around you...do you see 6 people? That is the same number of people who devastatingly commit suicide every day in Australia. Six people were at a point of no return that they believed ending their life was better than continuing it. And they are only the ones who succeeded. Another 30, each day, attempt to do the same. ‼️I know, for me, committing suicide wasn't about wanting to die, it was just about not wanting to live the life I had... battling with my own mind every single day. I never wanted to die, I just didn't want to be alive. Here, I tell my story. I explain the reality of wanting to commit suicide and the one trick I personally used to stop myself. 🙏➡️➡️ If you are thinking of anything along these lines, please call Lifeline Australia on 13 11 14. If you're outside of Australia, please call your emergency department.

It is time to make suicide a part of the conversation

Suicide is a leading cause of fatality globally. In Australia alone, 6 people commit suicide each day. To think that there are that many people who think life is not worth living breaks my heart. It is time to make suicide part of the conversation....

Even the darkest hour only has 60 minutes

It is World Mental Health Day 2018. It is time to continue the conversation and change the way we see mental health. Going through any mental health condition isn't easy. It was only 12 months that I was in some really bad places, and I was lucky enough to have the...

Preparing for the R U OK conversation

Earlier this week, I posted a video on tips for when reaching out to someone to check in with them and see how they are going. But what if you’re the one on the other side? The one being asked R U OK? How do you respond? I use my personal stories to show I responded throughout my journey to help others to prepare.

Being asked R U OK – What do you say?

It is October 2018 and it is Mental Health Awareness month! In my experience, there is a plethora of resources to help people ask if someone else is OK. But what if you're the one whose not doing OK, and somebody suddenly asks you? This happened to me, and I wasn't...

Tell Yourself the Story of the Dream Come True

Start telling yourself the story of what you want to be, rather than the reasons for why you aren't. ✨Last week, we posted a video on the power of meditation and how effective it is in relaxing the mind and creating a greater sense of space. But, that isn't the best part. The best part is that we can use this power to rewire our brains. We are incredibly amazing creatures that have the ability to create and change the connections in our minds.

Changing Your Internal Dialogue

Why I've Stopped Caring What the World Thinks of Me

You know that feeling, when you post a photo of yourself on FB and Instagram, and you start to get that irky feeling in your gut that maybe people will judge you, maybe that dress was a little too short, or that make up wasn't done well enough, or maybe I just look a little stupid. 🙋‍♀️I know the feeling, because I've been that person who hovered over delete buttons when I wasn't sure what people would think of me from my posts. 😩But, you know, after much deliberation (and self-discipline), I've taught myself to not give a care what the world thinks of me anymore. If I want to wear ugg boots to the shops, I WILL. If I want to try some awesome new make up colour, I WILL. If I want to wear / do / act / make / create whatever I want, THEN I WILL DO IT. 🙌Let's vow to ourself to BE OURSELVES. To be HUMAN. To be OKAY with ourselves AND one another. ✨ Join the journey @ Recover Together Now​!

Why We’ve Got to Stop Caring About What the World Thinks of Us Anymore

Creating the Light

A lot of people I speak to, when they’re having a rough time in life, be it a bad day, week, month, or even a bad year, the first thing that people say constantly is “But I have nothing to be happy about”. It can be really hard when you get yourself in a rut, which...
