I’m Nelle. I’m a mental health enthusiast, a free spirit, a travel lover, and have a deep love for SciFi. I started this blog a couple of years ago to share my journey of self-love and discovery. Because there was no one on the net sharing, how difficult and challenging this journey was. And girl, this journey is not easy. Trust me; my journey has well been over 5 years and counting.
And if you are looking for a place not just to get tips but the truth about changing your life and resources to match, then this is the place for you. My focus is to provide you with resources to help you be your best self and share my experience so you can see the struggle and practicality of the journey you are on. That is why we are called travelers. I hope to be your friend and confidant on this journey of self-love and discovery.
A little background story. Five years ago, I was overcome by anxiety, held down by depression, and had no clear purpose of what I was doing in this life. And honestly, I was just lost in this big world trying to follow the path that was laid out for me by society and those who love. Needless to say, I was not very successful. Until I decided to embark on this journey to discover myself, what I love, and most importantly, heal my trauma.
The result has been fantastic. I have moved out of my parent’s home, learned to manage my anxiety, and overcame my depression. All while getting a master’s degree and starting an awesome podcast @theblackgirljourney. All in FIVE years. What can I say? I have a purpose. And can’t wait to help you discover yours. Welcome to the journey.
