Help someone remain a survivor, support TWLOHA and always be your own biggest fan.

Be (B)eautiful: This past Saturday was the 12th annual National Survivors of Suicide Day. The day represents a time for people who have lost loved ones to suicide to come together and find healing. My love goes out to anyone who has ever lost someone because of suicide. I recently had a classmate from High school commit suicide this year. It’s important that you be as supportive and understanding of those people in your life. You never know what someone may be going through and really need someone to just listen to them. I just purchased this tee-shirt to support the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.  They are a positive movement to help support, inspire, inform and encourage those who need it most.

Be (B)eautiful: Help someone reach their goals. Be a cheerleader and support the people you care about as they strive towards achievement.

Talk to your coworker and resolve the issue- don’t bring your attitude home to people who love you. Be (D)etermined: You should always believe in yourself even when others may not. Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something or that you aren’t good enough.If you can see yourself achieving it-then take the steps necessary and make it happen. The only person stopping you from achieving your goals is you.
