Share a moment where you felt uplifted, encouraged or empowered.
Do you recall a moment where you felt empowered, uplifted or encouraged? How did that moment impact you and make you feel? Did it shift your perspective in any way or change how you felt about a topic or idea?
I’ll go first!
I felt uplifted and empowered when I hosted my first Mighty event back in 2018. During this time I was going through a lot of major shifts and changes when it came to my career and mental health. This was also the first time I was doing something that was out of my comfort zone. Following this moment I became more confident in my abilities and talents 🌟.

If you’re like me and have a mental health diagnosis, I want to remind you that you are a strong, resilient and powerful warrior. No matter the obstacles you’re presented with, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to. You are worthy and capable of a successful and fulfilling life. You got this!
Sending love and hugs to whoever may be struggling right now 🦋.
Do you have a hobby or skill you do really well and makes you feel good? What about a habit that you do well because it’s what you’re used to but want to change?
Note: If you want to change a habit, what is something you want to do instead and think will align more with your needs and goals?
Friendly Reminder: It’s okay if you do something well but also realize that there’s room to grow and improve.
I’ll go first! I’m really good at writing and creating worksheets and community building activities.
I’m also good at getting my personal projects done but find myself procrastinating and leaving them for the last minute. I’m working on balancing my schedule to include my personal projects along with my daily work.

So very excited to announce the NAMI-NYC Expressive Arts workshop event I will be hosting at the end of the month! This event will be via Zoom and on the NAMI-NYC website. You can find the link in the flyer here. On the day of the event click the Expressive Arts Zoom link for April 30th, 2022!
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to send me an email. The time of the event is in Eastern Standard Time.
**I will share any updates or changes and keep everyone posted.
Here are some details for the event:
Pick Your Joy
“Pick Your Joy” is a creative and fun event focused on reflecting and expressing what joy looks and feels like to us. Starting with an ice breaker, we will sketch an image and write about one fun fact about ourselves. The main activity will then be to pick one of two activities. The first activity will be to draw what it’s like for you to experience joy and the second activity will be to write a poem about an exciting moment in your life. Lastly, we will close by sharing our works of art.
Materials: Paper and writing utensils (pen, pencil, crayons, markers, etc)
What is one thing you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?
Ever since this year started, I’ve been on a mission to prioritize what’s best for me. From the opportunities I’m accepting to what I’m eating and who I’m interacting with, I’m checking in with myself daily to make sure what I’m doing is a reflection of what I want and deserve.
In that process, I’ve thought a lot about what I need more of and what I want to improve. One major thing I know I want/need more of (because It’s almost nonexistent in my life) is having fun and defining what fun looks like for me. I want to spend more time doing things I enjoy!
What about you? Is there anything you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?

Finish this sentence: I like to boost my self-esteem by ________.
Building my self-esteem is an ongoing journey I work on regularly. On that journey I’ve learned different ways to help myself feel better especially when my mental health isn’t great and I’m feeling depressed, sad or self-critical of what I’ve achieved so far in my life.
I particularly like to boost my self-esteem by doing a combination of these three things: 1. Repeating this affirmation, “I am doing my best and my best is enough.” 2. Going to get my eyebrows done and buying myself something nice (when it’s in my budget). 3. Writing on my blog about something I’ve overcome or accomplished that I’m most proud of.
What about you? How do you boost your self-esteem?
