Be inspired, Be empowered

We invite you to express yourself through telling your story. You can do so through an written piece, poetry, words and images, art and/or photography. Your story will empower others through community, encouragement and learning.

You will be published in a magazine format in print copies that will be placed into mental health clinics to encourage those doing it tough. PDF and print copies are available for purchase.

The more we share our stories, the more we learn about ourselves and empower others. This publication is all about this. We can express ourselves through our stories in a genre that you feel comfortable with and be part of that healing wave in supporting and encouraging each other.

I created this to share my heart and soul into something I know will bring support others; having gone through my own mental health journey. I love design. I love art. I love photography. I love writing. All these have helped me work through my trauma. And above all I love to see you flourish too! Why not share your story?

Go to the Publication tab to see the themes of the month and the preview the current issue. Go to the Submit tab to find details on how to submit your original work.

Motivating and Educating

Whether you have suffered a tremendous loss in your life, gone through horrific trauma, suffered from depression or another mental health disorder, no matter what it is we all have lived experiences to share.

  • In this monologue, I to stop reflect about life itself from dusk to dawn, from new life to growth, from moment to moment. A mixture of inspirational thoughts that went from one to another without any pre conceived ideas. It came naturally.
  • Have you ever felt like you've lost yourself or feel stuck and broken? I have. In this moment, I am internally fragile after receiving some bad news.

Self-Love

Our souls long for love. A tender touch that can only render inside. An expression that every person craves. At times, we can wonder where such love can be? Love can feel so dim inside a lonely heart. What would life be like without love? For we would not know the true meaning of this …
