the purpose of berry merry endorphins

I've always wanted to have a blog where I would share my story with others and hopefully inspire others, as well as having others inspire me to be a better person. This isn't the first blog I've made, but hopefully it'll be the first blog that I actually keep. (I'm determined.) I changed my url and blog name several times yesterday until I realized what I wanted to do with my blog. At first, I wanted to have a food blog but I also wanted to blog about other things.

Berry Merry Endorphins is about health, and not just about physical health which is what most people think about when they think about health. But mental health as well. I read a quote a while ago that stuck with me.

“Mind-body issue: people are so proud to go to the gym; so ashamed to go to a therapist.”

It took me a long time to realize that it was okay to ask for help - that people weren't going to think you're weak or crazy for it. Yes, they are going to be some people that are. (And you don't need those people in your life.) But most people aren't going to be like that - they're going to be understanding, caring, and supportive. And you have to be brave enough to reach out and ask for help.

That's what I want this blog to be about. Self discovery, self acceptance, and self love. Because I think a lot of people need that in their life, I know I do and I'm still working on it every day. Life is a journey and it should be a good one. Your mind and your body will stay with you for as long as you live - take care of it so it can take care of you.

Thanks for reading! Let me know if there's anything you're curious about or have comments on. I would love to hear your thoughts. Also feel free to introduce yourself! I would love to get to know other bloggers.
