Wearing Lime Green for Mental Health Awareness Month & A Giveaway
May has been observed as mental health awareness month since 1949. So the three of us decided to join in on the campaign by wearing our lime green this week. All in thanks to one reader, Bev who is also offering a devotional book as a giveaway below.
Quote of the day: “Don’t be ashamed of your story. It will inspire others.” Unknown
This quote says is all. So much about mental health is hidden and kept secret. Many people deal with mental health issues, and finding help whether that’s medication or guidance can make a world of difference. I feel like sharing our experiences can benefit not just us but others too.
Our Lime Green for Mental Health Awareness Month
If you missed our individual posts about wearing lime green, I tried to showcase it 3 different ways. And our outfits show how lime green can be different shades and brightness too.
I had Nancy wear her lime green as a topper with a vest and column of color underneath. This would work with black or even white.
Charlotte wore the color as a layer under other colors along with many different lime green accessories.
And then I styled a recently thrifted lime green top for my outfit. In my individual post I wore my belt bag on my shoulder, but here you can see it around my waist.
Michael Garmen Museum in Colorado Spring
This field trip took us an hour south of Denver to Colorado Springs. We had seen this miniature Michael Garman museum while researching the area, and thought it would be a fun, indoor activity. Not only were the cityscapes just amazing in their details, there were added holograms that made the experience SO unique.
One of the reasons we found this place for our activity of the day was because a cold front had hit Denver. You might notice the coats that Nancy and I are wearing in the photo below. Springtime in the Rockies can mean snow even in May.
Bev From Walking Well with God
I’ve been following Bev’s blog now for at least a year or two. It’s called Walking Well with God, and she’s not only inspirational but so open about the twists and turns that life brings to us.
Bev shares her personal experience in her mental health awareness blog post and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I think many of us have some variations of this and even if we’ve learned to deal with it, realizing the symptoms can make us more empathetic. Mental illness is just like any illness. It’s not your fault. It’s a chemical imbalance in your body.
Bev is generoulsy offering a copy of the DaySprings devotional hardback book sent to one lucky US winner in the rafflecopter below. She is one of the writers featured in this book “A Moment to Breathe”. There are other writers in the book as well like Holley Gerth, Jennifer Dukes Lee, Emily Freeman, and Lisa-Jo Baker.
As we were taking these photos for the blog, we laughed at seeing a lime green jeep in the parking lot. Of course this called for another photo!!
