I started writing reflections
from my recovery from bed.
Writing them was a way to help reset my mind after 21 weeks of bed rest to help me heal.
One day, I started sharing them, and when I did, I noticed something —

Hey, I'm Mandy
Today, all over the world, we are all healing from the same things that I once faced, (maybe not two unexpected spinal surgeries in one year), but the stuff that comes with it— immobility, isolation, a looming new normal, and a bit of the unknown.
Like so many of us, I've been trying to figure out how I can best show up for service during this time. One day, I stopped looking, and started listening—to every one of you who wrote to me, and shared your story after reading a bit of mine. I started an active practice—responding to people all over the world through DMs and submissions on my website—authoring a thought to help elevate their mindset and share perspective to lean into when they need it most. Because of their responses, I knew this practice needed to be made accessible on a broader scale.
Days later, The Daily Uplift was born.
My goal with this project is to shed a bit of hope, optimism, and a simple light to carry us through the dark. And together, lift one another up.
I'm so happy you're here.
