MILESTONES, CREATIVITY AND MENTAL HEALTH

Cheers to all!

On January 1, 2012, I read an article about women, depression and how coffee helped, that day “What my Coffee says to me” was born. I started in a leap year, 5 years later with your love and support plus these milestones, I keep creating.

• November 15, 2016 1,781 illustrations!
• December 31, 2016; 1,827 illustrations!
• June 30, 2017 with 2,007 illustrations!

Please support my campaign to continue create ‘What my Coffee says to me’ series: https://www.gofundme.com/k84nhxaj

WHY I CREATE:
The stigma surrounding depression originates from living in a culture where feelings of vulnerability are considered weak. At first, my depression prevented my ability to work or to earn a living. This led me to judge myself as less valuable, a nobody. We measure our self-worth when we are working or producing. As a result, my sense of failure and inadequacy stunted my creativity.

Many times throughout our lives we may feel crushed beneath the weight of decisions and circumstances. We may feel as though we are worthless. Please remember, you will never lose your value.

Today, I know I can enjoy life. I know I can succeed.
My coffee tells me so every day!
