Hello there. My name is Mandi and I am a champion of happiness, positivity, and self-love. I also live with mental illness, self-esteem issues, and past trauma so sometimes it’s hard to practice what I preach.
Roses and Red Hair was started not only as a platform for me to write therapeutically, but as a place anyone can visit when in need of a friend. I share my experiences with the intent for us to all feel a little less alone and to try and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
As a mom of three it’s very important to me to teach my kids that “normal” really isn’t a thing. We are all unique with a great many strengths and weaknesses and some people need help to navigate them.
I am by no means an expert, nor do I have any training or formal education in this field. I only have life experience, an open heart, and a desire to share that “being positive isn’t pretending that everything is good – it’s seeing the good in everything.” 🌹
