Pleased to meet you– My name is Lauren M, novice lifestyle blogger & aspiring author.

I am a young entrepreneur and third year student in pursuit of my BA in Psychology. I reside in Massachusetts with my wonderful husband and two fur babies; Scarlett, our big, fluffy Maine Coon cat and Logan, the most spoiled Mini Aussie ever.

My goal in creating One Blue Dahlia is to bring mental health awareness into the light. The focus is on mindfulness and personal wellbeing; I aim to help others know that they are never alone. There are strength in numbers, and together we can end the stigmatization around psychological diagnoses.

My other interests include everything from the next best glass of wine and the yummiest hors d’oeuvres to pair, to knitting, tea and healthy living products. I am a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur who firmly believes that our coffee should work as hard as we do- I am always in search of the most delicious brew. I plan on showcasing some of these interests in between articles, to help remind you that self care isn’t selfish and that time spent on yourself is not time wasted.

The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.
