Purposeful Dreamer Reflections
Learning from To Write Love on Her Arms, our journey of hope, love, and Mental Health
Lesson 1 –
The simplest act of love could make all the difference in someone’s life, it has the power to change someone’s perspective and can give the hope and strength they needed to keep living when feeling like giving up.
Our feelings and emotions are real, no matter the circumstances, life doesn’t always make sense, our hearts can be broken at times, but in the hardest times, having someone that loves you and accepts you can make all the difference in our life and give us the hope and strength to keep living.
Did you have that person in your life that unexpectedly said the words you needed to hear to give you hope the hope you needed at some point in your life?
I’m thankful to have had the people in my life that shared with me the simplest words and acts of kindness that gave me the hope and strength to continue living when I needed the most…
I didn’t know how I would ever fit in to this new world, uncertainty and hopelessness filled my heart in the first months of moving here as a 15-year-old from El Salvador, I was terrified and felt completely out of control, from not speaking a word of English, the list goes on and on. I didn’t know what mental health was back then, I now that what I went though was a time of deep and dark depression, in those darkest emotional times of my life, I wasn’t sure I wanted to keep fighting this life, if it wasn’t for the people that loved me and gave me that spark of hope, I may not be here sharing this highlight right now and living the life I’m so thankful for today.
Have you ever thought about praying for help? Those were the words I will never forget because in that moment, I needed to hear them to find a spark of light to want to keep living, I don’t belong to any religion, but I believe in the power of spiritually and our connection to our universe and each other. I will never forget that short moment, I can’t remember what I was doing that day and why my aunt was dropping me off back to our apartment, I didn’t say anything, she just said those words right before I opened the car door to leave, she must had known, and that day, she saved my life…
Learning about twloha reminded me that we are never alone, that our stories are powerful and that there is always someone there that can help us see the light.
We have the choice and the power in us to find and give more love and hope to ourselves and to others, and it can be in the simplest and most loving ways that can make all the difference.
Lesson 2 –
SELF CARE is CRITICAL for our Overall health and wellbeing, and EVERYONE has the right to mental health support no matter who you are or your financial status– When we show up for yourself, we are showing up for our community. Everyone deserves access to mental health; you can find the twloha Self Care page link above with simple and great ways to start and find the help you need.
Lesson 3 –
Remembering the impact social media and the internet can have in our lives, either in a positive or negative way. I’ve enjoyed learning and following twloha on social media for a couple of months now, one of my personal passions with Purposeful Dreamer, is learning more and more, about the impact social media and the internet can have in people’s lives anywhere in the world, in either a positive or negative way. I’m inspired by organizations that use their reach to make a positive impact in people’s lives, as I inspire our blog will do for others too…
I personally feel if there is one way, we can all contribute to this big world of the internet and social media avenues, is by sharing more kindness and encouragement for each other, we can make it a place where we find hope and lift each other up instead of comparing or judging.
We can always find hope in the love and support of others and the internet and social media has the attention of billions of us, no matter what our current circumstances are in our present moment, it’s important for all of us to understand our responsibility in this new virtual world.
Thank you twloha for all that you do, you inspired me to share a piece of my story I have never shared before, which is scary but important to share, it is my honor to be learn about your work and be able to support your organization along with Kasey through Purposeful Dreamer Experience.
