With the age of smartphones came the ability to document every moment of our lives.  I buy into this completely.  I take pictures of everything, mostly a lot selfies.  I’m pretty vain, but I have a lot of friends that live far away.  We like seeing each other’s faces.  not only that, I want people to see my moods.  You don’t have to be happy all the time.  Depression is more common than people realize.

Depression is more common than people realize.  Being comfortable sharing how you feel and accepting the support of other’s can really help dealing with anxiety and depression.  Take a look at this infographic.

  • Life can get in the way of your dreams. For some people devoting even a full hour to their art is impossible. Some of us are not food or shelter secure. Do not feel like you are not an artist. I have a friend that wrote poems in between working multiple jobs and being a single parent. A minute here and there and I purse full of paper. She is published now. Your dreams are worth it. #wrtrcorns
