I am Toni…Mental Health Advocate first! Blogger, photographer, poet, & creator of art second! I have enjoyed creating since I was an adolescent. My passion started in elementary school with drawing & poetry. After experiencing some childhood trauma, I fell in love with writing/journaling. Journaling was my escape from my reality, and the only safe place I could express myself.
The trauma did not stop in my childhood, it festered into adulthood and compiled on adult trauma, which led to untreated mental illness, and my journey to healing mentally, physically, & spiritually. My goal is to share my testimony in hopes to encourage others to start their healing journey as well. We all fall, but just because you fall does not mean you must stay down.
Never allow life’s temporary circumstances to hold you back. Learn from your mistakes, grow through hard times, & start healing! There is light at the end of the tunnel!
