Hope…a feeling of expectation; Wellness…the state of being in good health.
I aspire to bring a new voice to mental health issues through real life narratives and to destroy the STIGMA associated with mental illness and receiving mental health services.
The Cactus my favorite flower for so many reasons… What do we know about the Cactus? It’s green, they grow in the desert, they have needles & etc. In all of God’s creations there’s a lesson and some deeper explanation of its purpose that we can apply to our lives. In one of the harshest climates the cactus is able to grow, when it rains the cactus is able to use its adaptations like fleshly parts to store to water, and they have spines to help prevent water loss by reducing air flow and providing shade. Their spines, are also used as a defense against herbivores. All of those things resonates with me. We should be like the cactus, in the hardest environments, situations, and positions we should use what God has given us to THRIVE and STORE and PROTECT ourselves. We cant be so quick to say (if we were the cactus)…it’s hot out here, this ground is too dry, I hate my color, no one likes me, I’m not good for nothing etc. We should think it’s hot but I can still grow, when the rain water comes I’ll be storing it, when the predictor comes I’m protected. The bible says that FAITH comes by hearing and hearing by the word of GOD. So let us be hearers and doers of GOD’s word so that in the end we can grow beautiful flowers in the hardest of places just as the CACTUS.
