Interviewing Olivia during was an absolute blessing. 

In this interview she shares her journey of dealing with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. 

I want other people to know they are not alone. For a long time I thought it was just me.”

The key things we talk about are: 

  • How important it is to find someone to talk to through your struggles. Even if you’re ashamed or embarrassed. 
  • Practical advice to calming down from a panic attack.
  • Olivia shares what panic attacks feel like for her. 
  • In a season of loneliness and rejection, Olivia started having extreme feelings of isolation. She shared that she wouldn’t have been able to get through it without the support of her mom and best friends. 

“No one on this earth is meant to get through life alone. There are people in your who want to support you even in the darkest moments.”

Remember, if you’re struggling, feeling alone, or having suicidal thoughts. Reach out to a trusted friend. Talk about it. Don’t feel guilty for sharing. Your friends and family WANT to be there for you and that’s why we are all here. To support each other.

If you’re struggling reach out to Olivia on instagram.

Below, we listed phone numbers you can contact if you need to talk with someone. Including phone numbers provided by Bakersfield Psychiatric Wellness.

Open up, share your struggles and share what’s going on.
Until next time, keep on pursuing your greatness!

Cypress Tree Tunnel-Point Reyes

THE BLOG, Uncategorized

Sooooo the Hubby and I took a trip to Napa this last summer.

After filming for a beeaaauutiful wedding,

(CLICK HERE to Watch that Wedding Video.)

We took off and drove over to Point Reyes.


When we arrived at Cypress Tree Tunnel

it was SO WINDY. 

My hair was wild and the giant trees were blowing.

I couldn’t help but feel tiny when compared to the giant trees.

Have you ever visited Cypress Tree Tunnel?

If not you should if you’re in the area!


Anyways, here are a few photos that we snapped that day.


After Cypress Tunnel we drove 45 minutes to a place called

“The Shipwreck at Point Reyes.”

It was a gold mine for photographers.

This abandoned ship was just left on the shore.


There are some beautiful and crazy things to see in this world.


Happy Exploring friends!
