Building a community through mindfulness & compassion

My Warrior Project is a means to spread positivity and kindness through mindful living and open communication. This sphere is a safe and welcoming space for all who are exhausted from battling to be alive. Whether you seek guidance or have a story to tell, I hope you’ll join us.

Most of us don’t want to be in the situation of asking ourselves, “Am I happy enough?” but the reality is, a lot of us are. I feel guilty when I think about myself as unhappy. I live in a beautiful neighborhood in a great city, with a man who loves me and two dogs to follow me everywhere. I have a steady job with growth opportunity that pays me plenty to pay my bills and buy me the things I want and need. Yet, still I find myself entrenched in moments of loneliness and sadness.

Happiness, though, isn’t our surroundings or our circumstances, it’s our perspective on them. Depression is a disease that has the power to shadow our perspective and skew realities, and while others may not be able to see your illness, it is real.

For me, this quote has always embodied what it means to be alive, and living your fullest life. “At the end of the day your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling.”
