  • A small sign of showing that you care will make a world of a difference for someone struggling with suicidal thoughts. As a survivor of multiple suicide attempts, the simplest things like my friends being there got me through those tough times. I remember who was there, who wasn't, and how people treated me. To this day, I appreciate the help I got. Struggling with suicidal thoughts isn't fun and it's so overwhelming having to go through that. People have a hard time opening up about it, because they fear that they will be looked at and treated differently. It's always necessary to assure your friends that you are a safe space for them. Always check on your “strong” friends and the ones that always seem to get upset. They may “get like that”, but one day you might receive the worst news of your life. It is more than them just breaking down all the time. Suicidal thoughts are very serious and shouldn't be taken lightly. Sometimes you can't do much to help and that's okay. Just offering love and care mean a lot. Love and care are more than letters put together. They need to be shown, especially when your loved one is in their darkest hours. Remember to show it to yourself too. If you're struggling with suicidal thoughts, know that I am a safe space for you. You're allowed to vent as much as you'd like and I'll respond when I can. I want you to stay alive, because nothing would be the same without you. When the nights get darker, the storm gets stronger, and you feel you are slowly sinking deeper, remember that you are loved. I don't wanna lose you.

Dear Giovanni,
Today I am #24weekspregnant with you, that’s the 6 month mark! 😱 Here’s what has happened within the last year which brought us to you!
.
1 whole year ago your Dad and I had gotten news that he was accepted to Officer Candidate School, but God had other plans for us! Dads shins were both broken and we had to make a decision, get out of the military and live the unknown or continue to wait.
.
As you’ll soon find out, we are not the “waiting” type and we knew bigger things were ahead. So, we started the transition of leaving the military!
.
During the transition we were hit with a #HurricaneFlorence and lost everything but some small meaningful items and each other. To us, we kept saying, God is telling us to start over, move on and grow.
.
So we did, we went through so many appointments with your Dad before leaving...so much stress, frustration, and even the fact of getting an incredible job to then be told, they are on a hiring freeze.
.
Again, God said...this wasn’t the job for you, try again. We never gave up. Another opportunity came around for Dad and he got to “dangerously” travel the world BUT he was protecting us from the bad guys, don’t worry bud!
.
While your Dad was away, I moved with your Aunt, Pop, and Gigi all the way to San Diego, CA! What sucked was Dad was still gone, something didn’t feel right, something was off.
.
We both had that “gut feeling” that this wasn’t the path God was talking about. Giovanni, you will learn that Mom and Dad have lost a LOT of very close people to us and have watched so many couples split because things get HARD.
.
We took a stand, and were taking action, Dad came home and as my belly started to grow...so did our business! We created #TheComeHomeProject for couples who are ready to excel in their relationship.
.
Your Mom and Dad are SO good at battling every bump, hill, and mountain we go through that we HAD to build this to give back to our beloved community in the military.
.
Now, here were are blessed with you. Blessed with a business we are truly obsessed with & make an impact on the world! Kid, you are going to be a legend at whatever you do & we are so excited for you.
Love Always, Mom ❤️

  • To God be the glory! 👆
Preached about depression and how to deal with it. .

You. If you are suffering from depression and suicidal ideations, there's a hope. There's a way out of it. You just have to acknowledge that you need help. As what the cliché says, "It is ok not to be ok." .

Find refuge in the presence of God and He's sure to listen to you. He's not gonna condemn you if you'll be honest with what you feel. He's not gonna belittle your situation. Cry out as you may. Pour out your deep-seated feelings.

  • As Memorial Day approaches, let's not forget the true meaning behind it. 🇺🇸
We still encourage you all to have a wonderful safe weekend with your families and friends, but we do ask one simple thing of you.
While you are cooking up those hotdogs 🌭, filling the coolers 🍺 and prepping the pool for the kiddos 🌊. Pause for a moment and look around at what YOU have. 
Remember what others have done for you. And take that moment to silently pay tribute to the lives of both human and K9 who have served for this country. 
One Flag. One Land. One Heart. One Nation. Ever More. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #memorialday #tribute

  • Tonight I almost broke my mother's heart.. Tonight I almost joined my brother.. But tonight I chose to continue with life.. I had planned this birthday to be my last, kept saying it will be the last I celebrate not meaning the last party but the last time I level up in age.. I was done I was ready to end my worthless life.. if it wasn't for those few message and if I didn't answer a phone call I wouldn't be sitting here posting this! So this is me saying NO I'M NOT OK, I have a long road to travel but I will fight and I will fight hard because my mother raised a strong woman! I will fight hard for my family to never suffer the pain we have already suffered from losing my brother to this very same disease. But I know deep down it is ok not to be ok and I will work hard at letting people in. To those that reached out thank you.. You saved my life tonight and I'll forever be grateful. Now to take this one day at a time to become that Megan I know I can be #imsorry #suicideprevention #itsokaynottobeokay #itaintweaktospeak #iamworthit

  • You are not alone.
You are important.
You are loved.

Over 38,000 Americans die by suicide every year. For every 1 suicide, there are 25 attempts. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for 10 to 24-year-olds. 4 out of 5 teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs. This is too important to not talk about.

Yoga and Sound for Prevention on June 9th (it's also the day after my 25th birthday!) is so close to my heart because at 16, it was almost me. I was at rock bottom and did not have the coping mechanism to deal with my problems. I believed that ending my life was better than learning how to navigate through it. Fast forward a little over 8 years, I am more grateful than words can describe to be here today and for everything I've learned because of the experience. I am not ashamed of my past and I talk openly about it with many people. I hope that by peeling the layers back and sharing my stories, I can make even the smallest difference in someone's life. 
If you would like to join @mackenzi_yogini and I at the @jfgphx
on Sunday, June 9th, at 7:15am there is a minimum donation of $20 and you must reserve your spot ahead of time at namascrayyoga.ticketleap.com. Profits will be donated to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Also, I'm excited to announce that the Lifeline has sent these magnets to me for our donors!

We are going to share a beautiful morning practice and end with crystal singing bowls and gong healing vibrations and would love for you to be there!

If you are in crisis, please contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 and know that you are not alone.

  • 'These feelings you feel will soon find their way out of the dark and into the day, so be kind to yourself'

JUST. KEEP. GOING. three words to chant when you're feeling your lowest. Even if you just get through this day alone you've acheived so much. On the days where you'd rather die, its important to take it moment by moment and do whatever it takes to look after number one. 
WE CAN DO THIS YOU AND ME!

Whats one thing you tell yourself when things are turning for the worst to help you in that moment?

We released our song 'Dark and Day' to support @calmzone with their awesome campaign to tackle male suicide. 100% of profits benefit them. 
If you'd like to hear it, the links in our bio!! Or copy and paste: https://youtu.be/ZGk-1ECvSI0

Some days aren’t so good.
Some days I just don’t wana.
Some days Im as tough as a rock but also I’m also sinking like a stone 
Some days, some times- I feel this way. 
Light tears can turn to ugly cry’s 
I hold myself tight-trying to rock myself to clarity. 
Some times and some days I feel this way. 
And that’s okay. 
I don’t like it and it’s not okay to stay this way. As long as I live though , I’ll always have some days and some times . . . 
What I can truly admit I am most proud of- honestly. Is that I am still here today. I am not and have not given up. Maybe in sparks but over all I am not going anywhere . I refuse to leave myself . 
After all, you are all you got. “If not today live for tomorrow, because it could be the day that saves your life.”
This is abbreviated on my right arm. My own quote I chose to live by senior year of high school. I still have this tattoo to remind me but it’s my mind set I wish I could tattoo. 
Hang in there my friends .

  • ⭐ VISION

At the Arbonne conference, I realized that if I make my belief and vision ENORMOUS then no amount of criticism, insecurity, rejection, or judgement will deter me from going after my dream. 💯

I learned that this can be applied to both your business and your life! I want you wonderful folks to do yourself a huge favour and share a big dream you have down below.

Sometimes we stunt our vision because we think our dreams are out of our reach. Try to dig deep and drop the judgement and dream big. 🌎 
Here's one of mine: I want to create a grant program that makes mental health resources more accessible to low income people. 
Here's another: I want to be able to provide for my animals REGARDLESS of medical cost, without breaking the bank, borrowing money, and stressing out about money when I should be focused on my animals. 
These are two of 21 very important reasons why I work so hard in all layers of my life. I'm learning to make life work for me and my needs, rather than sacrificing my mental health for my life. No thanks! 👀

So, I am challenging you to think about your dreams and share one or two below. There are no limits. ❤

  • For so many years of my life I played a small version of myself to make people feel comfortable. I desperately wanted to be liked, I wanted to fit in, I wanted to be seen. I found out yesterday that a young beautiful soul took her life. I completely understand her pain. I don't know the details of her pain but saw her soul. I put a gun to my head at 28. I overdosed on pills at 32. I GET IT. When you are constantly trying to make other people comfortable by playing a small version of yourself, you completely LOSE yourself. It wasn't until I stopped numbing myself for an extended period of time, that I began to find the authentic version of myself. I began to recover. I know that is makes my family really uncomfortable that I've begun writing about my addictions and my suicide attempts.
.
.
My family doesn't discuss these types of things openly. They really don't discuss anything whatsoever. I love them deeply but I feel that I've been called to break the unhealthy habits of generations back. I prayed long and hard about coming out about my suicide attempts and and addictions. If it helps just ONE person, it's worth it to me. I know the majority of people think I am absolutely INSANE for sharing myself so publicly. Sometimes I wish that God wouldn't have called me to do this. It's easier for me to go along with God's plans that to try and please the world. Happy Saturday guys! Play Big!
