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.

  • The End These are the so far the most emotionally charged. Words I have written. This weekend has been an emotional rollercoaster for me full of relief, trepidation, joy, and dispair. I have cried a lot. And although I know this story has another book, it still was painful to put those words down. So I added to it. The end, for now. 💕efR #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingromance
