31 Day Challenge | Day 24 | Inspired by a Book

5:00 PM

Nothing to Disclose
Hey there loves! Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend! My plan is to stay in again and just relax, my chronic illness is acting up making it a little hard to function as the moment so figured lounging around the house for a couple days will be best lol Anyways, today is Day 24 of the 31 Day Challenge, and the prompt is 'Inspired by a Book'. I decided on the classic Winnie the Pooh books.

This mani actually has a lot of meaning for me. I suffer from a chronic and painful stomach and intestinal disease, depression as well as an anxiety disorder that sadly effects my life in more ways then I can count. I have a hard time convincing myself some days that I am stronger then I give myself credit for and because of this both of my parents have always told me this quote from the Winnie the Pooh Books.

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.” ― A.A. Milne

I have this quote printed out and hung up in all of the rooms in my home as well as in the front of my planner, to remind me everyday that I am strong, I can get through this, and that I am loved and never alone. Reading this always gives me that extra boost I need to go through my day, and I am grateful to have family (and friends) who love and support me no matter what!

And that's it guys! Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope sharing a little insight into my day to day struggles with depression and anxiety has shown anyone out there that they are also not alone! Mental illness is not something to be ashamed of and doesn't make you any less of a person. Whats in your heart is all that matters! XO
