Yesterday was Fine, Wasn't It?
I received this post this week and then received an almost identical message following my post on my mom's death anniversary on Tuesday. This is why the Life is Sweet series and sharing my story alongside so many others is so important to me. We are not alo...
In that moment I think of how much better my family would be without me. Or would they be?

Why My Mum Would Rather Have Cancer Than Bipolar Disorder
This post was sent to me to be shared anonymously. As someone who has family members who deny the existence of mental illness in our family, I can relate to this idea of her mum's accident. Even though mental illness is so prevalent in our society, people a...

How to Lose Someone
Teresa has contributed to the Life is Sweet series for the last 2 years (you can read her previous pieces here and here ), and sent me this post even before I had officially decided if I was going to be doing the series again. This piece resonates deeply wi...
If you weren’t expecting the news that someone you loved has died, feel the air audibly be sucked out of your chest in what feels like one long breath. If you were expecting this news, even if you are sitting beside them when it happens, feel the air be sucked out of your chest all the same.

This is 31.
When I was a kid, I definitely thought of people in their 30's as grown up. They had jobs, and kids, and a partner. I imagined that you attended post secondary education and then went off into the magical land of "grown up" where they had their shit figured...

Something Sweet From Nothing
One of the reasons I initially started the Life is Sweet series in 2013, was to give me something to be excited for in February. It's such a bleak time of year, and the project gave me something positive to look forward to. Thank you to Jess for being a par...

Awful Sweet, to be a Little Butterfly
The statistics say that 1 in 5 Canadians will deal with a mental health concern in their lifetime. The other 4 out of 5 will know someone with mental illness. While it may not be something we deal with directly, we will most certainly encounter at least one...

In today's Life is Sweet post, Lacey shares the story of her friend, Nel.
