Wow! Thank You!

Hey guys 🙂

So despite the fact I have not written in this blog since mid November, there are still people finding, reading and following this blog ❤

That warms my heart! But umm, it also leaves me wondering what I should do lol. As you know from the last post I left here, I ventured off into new territory with a second blog called A Christian In Bloom.

The theme there as the name suggests, is faith based and focuses on my ever growing walk with God.

I have been taking things at a slow pace and I thought perhaps of closing down Mental Break – In Progress altogether…I did that once before during a difficult time in my life and I soon came to regret it.

Mental Break – In Progress has been my baby since 2014. I can’t seem to shake it and I don’t really want to.

It is clear to me that despite ignoring this blog for 2 months, the topic of mental illness is what I have always known it to be –

An important one.

So now I find myself back here once more and at a crossroads. Do I run two separate blogs? Do I mesh them together somehow?

Part of my back on forth on this is I want to reach people on more than one level. I know not everyone out there is a Christian or believes in God or even a higher power for that matter but despite that, I know there are many, many people who need to connect on the topic of mental illness and well, I know that topic quite well and I’m passionate about helping people regardless of their beliefs because no one deserves to walk the road of mental illness alone. ❤

On the other hand, my faith over the last year or so has grown leaps and bounds. I still struggle with it, all the time in fact but this transformation I have been going through is by far the most important one to date and so as I transform so does my writing.

So in light of all I have said just now and also in light of a new year, I guess it’s time to go to the drawing board and figure this out. As I write this some ideas come to mind already but honestly, if you have any feedback to give, this bipolar Christian would be most grateful to you! 🙂

New Beginnings

Hey guys 🙂

Just going to let this video speak for itself 🙂

Take Care & God Bless ❤



Be Still

Please be still

He knows you’re ill  

As you try in vain to find Him

The doctors

The nurses

They block your view

But He’s standing right behind them

Your fears are real

He knows this well

He’s trying to subside them

But please

Be still

Let Him work on you

And please 

Do not deny Him

A dose of faith

A dose of trust

You have to commit

This is a must

The power of prayer

May it reach you

Pray for yourself

He can teach you

Open your heart

Quiet your mind

Sing all His praises

His voice you shall find

In His name

Be still ❤

Take Care & God Bless ❤




Monday Prayer

Hey guys 🙂

As we enter a new week, I personally need to get my mind and my heart aligned with God and the best way to do that is through prayer ❤


Dear Lord,

Please continue to hold my hand as I enter into a new week.

Please watch over my family and in particular, I pray for my brother and his fiance as they prepare for their first born this week. May you ensure a safe delivery for mother and baby Pearl. ❤

May you watch over my family as we continue to grow and strengthen our bond with each other. I thank you that despite the past you bless us with a bright future. ❤

I thank you for helping me reunite with my church family. I know I need them and you know it too and so I thank you for giving me the strength to overcome my anxieties, my fears and even my complacency. 

Please continue to open my heart and allow me to exercise discipline in your name.

Use me as you see fit. ❤

You know my heart but I think you also need me to start acting on what’s inside my heart. This is scary Lord. Please help to wash away those fears so that I can better serve you and those who are closest to me.

Thank you for continuing to put a roof over my head, food on the table and harmony in my home. You bless me with the stability I have always wanted in my life and I am eternally grateful for that. ❤

Please continue to help me keep simplicity and peace in my life and in the lives of those around me.

I pray you touch those who need you but don’t know it. I pray for them most of all. I can’t imagine my life without you. I would not be standing here to today if not for you. ❤

Please help me to find direction in my writing. I am at a crossroads with my earthly passion and I want my earthly passion to line up with my passion for you and so help me to find the right words. Words that may touch someone in need of them.

Thank you in advance for guiding me through another week. Help me to tune out the noise that is the devil as he loves to play little games with me and those I love in an attempt to chip away at the foundation we have built in your name. Protect me from petty things…petty thinking.

In closing Lord, I thank you for hearing my prayers and I have faith and trust that you will answer every one of them as your plan for me continues to unfold. May you help me to see what you see. ❤



Mark 11:24 

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.


Take Care & God Bless ❤









Words As A Weapon

Owning What I Got

Hey guys 🙂

Soooo kind of bored right now and after watching some YouTube videos, I was inspired to make another. Tired of the fact that body image issues are still a thing in 2017 and so I decided to rise above my personal fears about my own body image as a way to hopefully inspire others to do the same 🙂 ❤




Take Care & God Bless ❤
