My Life in October 2019

Hello Everyone!

Another month is almost done, and that means it's time for a monthly lifestyle post! I want to thank everyone for well wishes on my last post. I still have a sinus infection, but hopefully I will feel better soon!

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month You may know that I'm a survivor of domestic violence. In the two years that I left that relationship, I've shared my experience with DV, and how I moved on with my life.

Mental health is another issue that hits close to home. Over the past 6 years I've shared my struggles with depression and anxiety and how I cope. It's not always easy having mental health issues, but I know things get better. Please be kind to others.

October is also a Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My hope is that one day there will be a cure to end this cancer and other illnesses.

A throwback of one my Fall related pictures from last year.

Monthly Lifestyle Posts turns 3!

I remember 3 years ago when I first posted a monthly Lifestyle post. There wasn't a particular reason I chose October, I just went with the current month at the time and wrote a recap. These monthly lifestyle posts are some of my most popular posts! You can check out the links to view my monthly lifestyle posts from the past 3 years under my photos above!
