“Fear: A chain with no substance but the most weight.
Anchoring you to mediocrity.
Let it make you careful, but never allow it to cripple.
Your success lies on the other side of your fear.
Take that step”
Yulinda Rock


“Happiness takes effort.
You don’t stumble upon it.
It doesn’t find you.
It isn’t a
state of being.
You dig for it.
You demand it.
You refuse to allow moments
to eclipse it.
You choose it.
And everday you have the option
to choose it again and again.
You decide.

Yulinda Rock



“I never understood
how important it was to be understood
until someone came along
who really did understand”

Mental Illness Isn’t Sexy but it’s Real: Lets Talk About It

We have a problem.  A really big problem.  A problem that is difficult to talk about but easy to minimize.  A problem that is so insidious that some of us don’t even acknowledge that there is a problem.  Or that some of us deem it “their problem”.  Or we ridicule those who acknowledge, accept, and … Continue reading Mental Illness Isn’t Sexy but it’s Real: Lets Talk About It

F Balance, Be Intentional Instead!

I fell hook, line, and sinker for the elusive goal of obtaining balance.  I even wrote a poem about it here.  But what is balance actually?  As I think more about my life and how it is in constant flux I become anxious for the need to get it all lined up just so.  I … Continue reading F Balance, Be Intentional Instead!
