| Happy Heavenly Birthday | February 13th. Nikki would’ve been 29 today. My sweet, bubbly, beautiful sister struggled with chronic depression, which ultimately ended up taking her life. It was tragic. I haven’t been able to give her a gift or a cake in 9 years, but that all changes this year. I’m starting my mental health awareness blog and it’s all for you Nikki! I struggle the same way she did with depression and anxiety, but I learned from her mistake. Maybe I can help others learn too? I know there’s a plan behind her passing, she was meant to make a difference. She already made a difference, she made one in me. I don’t know how my road would’ve turned out if I didn’t become more mentally aware. Maybe she saved me and using me to help save someone else? Gaining my mental freedom is something I’ll always have to work at, but I’m worth it and so are you. So was she. I’ve worked hard throughout the years to develop habits and tools to combat my depression and anxiety. Turns out I’m a really happy person, I just needed to put in a bit of effort. I can’t wait to show you all I’ve been working on! Please follow me on my new Instagram page for recipes, tips to trick, and reflections. I’ll post 3 times a week to start! Also I’ll be on facebook. All under @sweetmentalfreedom 🤗 Because there’s nothing sweeter than feeling mentally free! Website will be coming soon, it’s a lot harder putting together than I thought 😜 Here’s to you Nikki. I love you. I miss you. I can’t wait to help people so they don’t feel like you did. I’m sorry I didn’t know how to help you before. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for saving me. Happy Heavenly Birthday, sweet sister of mine. Lots of love, xo patsy jo Ps thank you Kylene for the photos, The Rejuvenation Place for the make up, and Roots Boutique for the clothes! DREAM TEAM!
