Hi, I’m Kimberlee, welcome to Bravely She Blogs.
This little space in the blogosphere is a place where I share the challenges and triumphs of living with depression, in the hope of opening a dialogue around mental health. The blog is also intended as a place where you and I can recover a sense of well-being.
Here on the blog I’ll offer a glimpse into my life and living with depression. We’ll delve into creativity, self-care, life-hacks, overcoming challenges and celebrating our successes.
Occasionally I share art therapy and DIY projects, as well as favourite finds and resources that have made a difference to me in some way.
WHO I AM
I am a dreamer, a gypsy heart with a penchant for crafting glimmers of inspiration into words of hope and encouragement.
I am a creative business owner, I run a little shop on Etsy, filled with pretty printables and tools to support your wellness journey.
I am a digital nomad, I live and work from my floating narrowboat home. Occasionally on the blog, I’ll share random bits about tiny living quirks and DIY.
I am a highly-sensitive soul, passionate about caring for our beautiful planet. As a result I’m completely obsessed with finding simplicity hacks and eco-alternatives for living well.
I am a survivor. Life has supported me through childhood trauma and associated PTSD. I was diagnosed with severe depression in 2014 and coming to terms with the impact of this illness continues to challenge me on a daily basis. The truth is, the reality of depression is serious and the blog is intended to inform and empower you. However, the information I share is not a substitute for medical advice or care.
Please, if you are feeling low or unable to cope, I’ve put together a page with a list of numbers you can call any time of the day.
I’ve personally used the Samaritans on a couple of occasions. I cannot tell you what a tremendous difference it made having a calm, professional voice on the other end of the phone when my mind was screaming.
Thanks for being here with me, please feel free to say hello through the comments on the blog, or connect with me on any of my social networks
