Let’s talk about mental illness and health …

Hey!!  What a great day! The sun is shining, the snow is glistening white, the ice on the lake is gleaming like glass …

Sure it’s cold out.  Freezing, in fact! But it is still a fabulous day. My dog Dallas, a malamute cross, is ecstatic and his energy is infectious lol  Mukluks and warm snow pants and I guess I am headed to the dog park with him!

I really enjoy heading to the dog park rather than leash walking. When I take Dallas to the park he becomes very engaged with the other dogs, jumping and leaping and running … the antics of all the dogs is very entertaining and lifts my spirits on even the gloomiest of days. Conversation with other dog owners usually revolves around the action of the moment. So much laughter shared 🙂

This is my very first blog. In conversations to come you will be better introduced to Dallas, to myself, and to my sisters, the women who inspired me to start this blog. I will be sharing my stories of despair, support, triggers, inspirations and so much more. Ultimately, my goal is to leave you after each visit with a lighter mood and a smile on your face.

In the meantime, I just want to remind all of you about January 25th, 2017. “Let’s Talk”, sponsored by Bell. It is a day that gives you and I and people dealing with loved ones to have an open and honest conversation about the stigmas surrounding the illness that we live with. Please join in by going to http://letstalk.bell.ca to learn more.
