YOU MAKE TODAY BETTER

Why this campaign is so important to me:

15 years ago I suffered from severe depression, I held no hope for next day and struggling to get out of bed most days for years to come. On multiple occasions, I attempted to take my own life because I found no value in waking up suffering. Those mornings I woke up after my failed attempts was my worst nightmare becoming reality and THAT FEELING is unbelievably indescribable, no words could possibly explain it. 
Right now you may be thinking, "Lynde, why are you telling this to social media? It's making me uncomfortable". Exactly my point... and why I'm exposing these words publically, simply because it's not something to be ashamed of expressing. We are and should feel more than entitled to share our vulnerability in order to let other's know - you are not alone. 
How can we raise awareness and help other's get the help they need if we don't allow them a safe society to express themselves and NOT feel scared or ashamed for doing so? It's time to break down the social shaming and replace the negative stigma of mental illness with love, patience, understanding, and acceptance. 
15 years later, I wake up energized by the sun on my face, feeling overwhelmingly grateful for what the day has for offer and the challenges I can conquer. This is a brief glimpse into my story, while I encourage others to share theirs so those struggling know they are not alone. If you can't see past today, just as I couldn't, know you make today better and we are so thankful to have you in this crazy but beautiful world.

Keep living your great story, you are worthy, your pain won't be forever and even one day will bring other's hope.

All my love from Arizona ❤

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." Your kindness to someone may be the only bit of love and/or light in someone's world. Choose kindness. Choose love. Choose joy.

You matter.

You're needed.

You're loved.

And you rock.

Her soul is as vast and magnificent as they come, lined with beauty and bursting at the seams.
.
It feels like a lifetime ago, but only 5 years to the day. I am almost as old now as she was when she left. It has been so long since I’ve heard her voice that sometimes I forget what it sounds like, but you never really do forget. Its so hard sometimes, the breakdowns are fewer and farther between. I don’t know that I would call that a metric of getting better, more like moving on, but it does feel easier.
.
I’m not posting this to get your pity, your likes or even your empathy, though the third is much appreciated. I am posting this because her memory is more important than staying silent about loss.
.
Everyone we have ever lost is more important than that.
.
Every day since Steph passed away, I’ve tried putting myself in her shoes. I think we’ve got pretty close there towards the end, but in a strange way I am closer to her now than ever before. I know why now, I think, whatever comfort that has given me.
.
Do not wait until its too late. Too late to repair a bridge, too late to tell them you are sorry, too late to express how much your soul aches to see them again. Our family, our friends, our relationships are all we have. I was close with her but I regret not being closer when we were kids. How could I have known, though? I tell myself that lie a lot. But I SHOULD have known; everyone dies and it could be at any time, for any reason.
.
We all are just children - scared, and scarred - walking around like we think we know what is best for ourselves and maybe our kids if we have them. But we are just trying to survive our trauma. And when you realize that, no one is better or worse than the other, and we are ALL deserving of love. Our brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers and friends, they all deserve love, and the ones that are the hardest to love sometimes are the ones who need it the most.
.
Thanks for reading if you did. I think revealing our vulnerability is important. But do not pity, I despise pity. Instead, please just send someone love that needs it. If you think they don’t, they might need it now more than ever.

My story continues on,... this was Day 2 of self care 🖤 Yesterday I worked a 9+hour shift, but still went out for a run right after. I’m battling against my depression and trying to defeat it. My depression was stronger than ever the past month, but I’m still pushing forward. It’s lead me to increase my nicotine intake, almost as if I was chain smoking again. This shall be a battle I will never forget. “You’re beautiful. Regardless of what people think.” 💪🏼♥️🖤🍁🌹 #towriteloveonherarms #tattedgirls #filipinawoman #live#love#laugh #snapfilter #yesterday #day2 #selflove #selfcare

I’m going to get raw with you all for a few minutes, so bear with me. All my life i’ve been the “strong” one. I’m always the one people go to when they’re going through their struggles, i’m known to put a smile on someone’s face when they’re hurting and I will always pick someone up when they feel they can no longer carry on themselves. It wasn’t until I started this fitness journey that I took a step back and realized how strong I am. Physically, no. I have arms as weak as a twig, and I complain through my hour long workouts. But strong for those around me. I want to start having that strength I have for others, for myself. There’s days I don’t want to get out of bed. There’s times where I just shut the world out and isolate myself. I have BPD and severe depression. For years, my friends and family told me “work out! it’ll help so much!” And though I doubted it forever (I still do when i’m wheezing through my cardio workout) I do feel a sense of pride at the end of the workout; a feeling i haven’t had in a long time. If you asked me this time last year where I would be a year from then, I would have laughed and shrugged. Mainly, it’s because I didn’t expect to see 2019. I was going through it, and I was contemplating ending it all. The storm never seemed to pass. But, here I am; a year later, hoping that this message reaches someone who needs a sign tonight. The storm DOES pass. There’s going to be a lot of thunder and things around you are going to crash, but you need to keep holding on. You need to fight, because tomorrow needs you more than you know. The ones around you, need you more than they might express. Keep your head up, and please don’t give up. •

There’s some terrifying truths about life. We are small and insignificant living in a world that can be crueler than we can ever consider… .
.
.

Despite this, at the same time, we don’t let the bleakness break us. We continue to look for the good in the world and within ourselves. We continue to make this experience meaningful and worth it. As a society and individuals, we continue to step forward and strive for positive change. We don’t just turn towards it. To quote Charles Bukowski, we “rage against the dying of the light.” . .

I found this on the inside of my @twloha shirt when I was doing laundry. I honestly have no idea how I haven’t seen it before today. But it was the perfect day to see it. I have been struggling a lot lately with the constant wondering of whether I’ve made the right decisions in my life. It’s been a manic year of very high points and a serious of rock bottom points. Making the decision to uproot myself again has been difficult, but I need to surround myself with people who have loved me unconditionally. I am worthy of hope and I deserve to be authentically happy and true to myself. We all have stories and all of us are important. I am always willing to listen to someone’s story - no matter how well I know them. If someone asks for help, never turn them away. You will never know how hard it was for them to simply ask you in the first place. And never forget to let someone know that you love them. ❤️ #towriteloveonherarms #itsokaynottobeokay #iwillalwayslisten #suicideawareness #endthestigmaofmentalhealth

This is my story. Yesterday was Day 1 of self care. For the past month or so, I’ve been dealing with a rough time, regarding my depression, anxiety as well as the thoughts that come to my mind. Starting today, I shall post every day of what I’ve accomplished as well as a self love quote to bring more confidence in my life. I started with a run, then a major work out. For those of you who know me, I am a smoker and I have been a smoker for couple years now. Yesterday I decided it was time for a change. So self love quote for today shall be: “Yesterday was the past. Today you be the best you, you can be♥️” #towriteloveonherarms #selfcareDay1 #imchangingtobeabetterme #tattedgirls #live#love#laugh #filipinawoman #imnotalone

"Every day I lay this fear at the cross, because to live in fear is to not trust. On very bad days this fear can overwhelm and cripple my emotions. I'm choosing to trust God with this area of my life. Trusting that He knows the days of my life before me, and He has planned them to bring me closer to Him. Trusting that He will sustain me through whatever life brings. Trusting that His word is true and life giving." #KingdomStudentMinistries #YoungLife #Texas #Sunset #twloha #ToWriteLoveOnHerArms #LoveDoes #EverybodyAlways #tetelestai #ProjectSemicolon #SpinThatFork #UMARMY

You make today better🧡
It is so important to keep the conversation about mental health going and decrease the stigma surrounding treatment. Please consider donating to my suicide prevention campaign (link in bio) (give.twloha.com/bruno2019), which directly funds local treatment resources. Last year i was able to raise over $600 with the help of some amazing people, lets keep that going this year!

Healing is messy and non linear. It’s the pain of a heart being reshaped. It’s understanding poetry and lyrics more intensely. It’s smiling and simultaneously letting tears baptize you in the deep of night. ⠀⠀
There may be a lesson in it & maybe not. Maybe, all you can do is just be. What is beautiful is knowing that though your heart may beat with a different rhythm, it still beats. ⠀⠀
Let it beat on the door of grace and let yourself heal every time you’re let in. ⠀⠀

Healing is messy and non linear. It’s the pain of a heart being reshaped. It’s understanding poetry and lyrics more intensely. It’s smiling and simultaneously letting tears baptize you in the deep of night. ⠀⠀
There may be a lesson in it & maybe not. Maybe, all you can do is just be. What is beautiful is knowing that though your heart may beat with a different rhythm, it still beats. ⠀⠀
Let it beat on the door of grace and let yourself heal every time you’re let in. ⠀⠀

Repost @yogapsychology with @get_repost
AllVibesAnytime is about understanding that life isn’t all fancy yoga poses, vacations, and personal successes. The authentic, real moments of vulnerability, heartbreak, frustration and anxiety are just as important. Then why do we conceal these very real emotions that we all share in as apart of the human experience? 👭👭
Day 1 of the the AllVibesAnytime challenge is to share 1 personal story of vulnerability. 
I took my profile off private and am taking some major energetic blocks off in order to moveforward to my destiny❤️ MedicineWoman
Heart cracked wide open in wildthing. I will never stop reaching for The Light 👑 I will never stop Loving 🏹
My profile was on private because I left a violent relationship YEARS ago and the person STILL stalks me. I was forced to go into hiding in my physical life and chose to disappear on social media as well-I lived in complete terror. I can’t explain to you in one post the shame felt from being involved in that type of toxicity but I can tell you learning more about the devastating effects of PTSD and the nervous system have really placed a massive amount of compassion in my heart for my own self and others who have been literally trapped. I believe it was for my own safety at the time, to disappear, but that time is WAY over. Super amazing words from @dr_clarissa_pinkola_estes explains this frozen phenomenon; 
When a creature is exposed to violence, it will tend to adapt to that disturbance, so that when the violence ceases or the creature is allowed its freedom, the healthy instinct to flee is hugely diminished, and the creature stays put instead. I’m taking my chance to fully integrate my escape into my consciousness and SAY I LEFT and I’d leave a million lifetimes over again. I’m UNFUCKING myself by SPEAKING THE TRUTH because I’m not afraid anymore and need to keep moving to know I’m safe now, I GOT OUT and you can too. So here’s to just another flame intended to destroy me used for The Good of ALL 🔥StillIRise 
Blessings xx J 
It’s not your job to save anyone but yourself beautiful

I'm fundraising for @TWLOHA's #YouMakeTodayBetter campaign for World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th). Because 800,000 people die by suicide each year and it shouldn't be that way. With your help, we can make a difference by providing counseling sessions and helping to connect people to thousands of services in their communities. (Link in profile to learn more and to donate) 💙 #wspd19 #suicideprevention #endthestigma #youarenotalone #twloha #towriteloveonherarms

Here is what I’m planning for September!!! As some of you may know, September is suicide awareness month. With your help, I want to raise $1000 for the charity, To Write Love on Her Arms. I’ve done a lot of research into it, and I think they are a great non-profit to support! I provided some info about it in the post, but I’m going to be talking more about it and my ideas for the month over the next two weeks. We’ll be officially starting on September 1st. Don’t worry, I’ve got a lot of plans, and I’ll be sharing the details soon! Stick around! 😁 #project_ending_stasis #towriteloveonherarms #suicideprevention #suicideawarenessmonth #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #support #charity #inspire #inspiration #inspirational #love #artist #youngartist #arttherapy #september #joinme #arttherapist #fundraiser

Some days are harder than others to find the light and drown out the tug of that relentless anxiety and dark threat
🌸🌸🌸
For those of us who carry the scars of past trauma and the forever reality of mental illness there is no real knowing when the dark threat will rise and make itself known
🌸🌸🌸
We can only do our best to build our little kit of ways we keep it as distant as possible and live a life that feels like a life
🌸🌸🌸
The more we dig into our reserves and find the words in there that will reach others, the more we connect and dig each other out a little from our own dark threats

The last few weeks and especially the past couple of days have been exhausting and trying. For all that i post about selfcare, the importance of wellness, and mental health advocacy i havent been doing so great. There are times when I feel small, unimportant, and the anxiety/depression makes having a will to function difficult. 
I need to prioritize myself and my goals. What makes me feel accomplished.  I need to learn to throw out other people's voice of judgement in my head. One of my favorite quotes and relevant to my life : the people in the cheap seats dont get to have a say in how big your dreams are.. other people's opinios are none of your business. 
One of my smaller shorter term goals is to bring awareness to mental health advocacy, knowing the warning signs of someone who needs a helping hand, that all lives have value, selfcare etc

Im doing the @afspnational walk for @westessexoutofthedarknesswalk in October. The purpose of these walks is to bring awareness to suicide prevention, healing for people who have lost loved ones, and to end the stigma towards discussing mental health.

Mental Health Monday: Count your mother-freaking blessings!
.
I’ve talked about perspective before, and how we decided what we take away from our circumstances. Well I live by what I preach! My van broke down while I was in Fort Collins two weeks back and from the moment it happened I made myself be in the mindset of “what am I to learn from this setback?” Well I learned (or relearned) that I have an amazing support system! They say it takes a village, and my village is full of the best and most selfless people! From Don, the mechanic who took care of my baby while she was in Fort Collins, to @adrian_aws who made sure I didn’t stay stranded up there and brought me down to Denver, to @amanda_rusch97 @that_joe_belarde10 and @julieksquires who gave me rides to and from work, and to @stukey719 who not only picked me up from Denver, but drove me back to Fort Collins when it came time to retrieve my van!
.
Trials are a blessing in disguise, because we  learn some lessons that help us appreciate where we’re at and grow us into who we are meant to become!

"You'll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living, breathing, screaming invitation to believe better things." What you're going through? It matters. But I promise you, things will get better. 
It's okay to stop and rest.

Keep breathing.

Keep loving. 
Keep living.

You matter.

You're needed.

You're loved.

And you rock.
