Starting from 9am on the 15th of October 2018, the world will never be the same again. Why? Well, The Filling Station is finally going live!
After a year and a half of contemplation, a lot of doubt, sacrificed nights-out and a lot of sleepless nights which were mostly caused by the anxiety of not knowing whether this would work or not, we have decided that this is the right time to launch this website. During this “struggle”, a beautiful team was built and you’ll get to know them more during the course of next week – we call them The Tank. They are the people that come up with most of the content that will be posted here.
Some of you might still not know what the hype is all about, but that’s why I decided to post this article and just enlighten you pre-launch day. The Filling Station is a website/non-profit organisation created to fight the stigma surrounding mental health and promote wellness among individuals.
The Filling Station is basically for everyone. The world is malnourished, people are running on reserve without even realising it. Some are on the verge of throwing in the towel whilst others just survive because they have no other choice. I could literally go on forever, but I guess the point is that we all need to get to a point where we begin to take care of ourselves. It’s time we all connected and took care of the deepest self who is easily swallowed by worldly pressure.
The Filling Station promises to rejuvenate your soul and connect you to people like yourself that are going through the same challenges as you. People are giving up on their dreams, walking out on their goals and simply tapping out because no matter how hard they try, things seem not to work out. I’m talking to the millennial that feels like giving up because his business seems not to be getting anywhere, the single mother who has gone on countless dates and yet still fails to find a soulmate leading to her feeling less…beautiful. I’m talking to the man that cannot express how he feels because society condemns him for doing so. I’m talking to the teenager that finds it hard to fit in because they suffer from undiagnosed social anxiety and the young man who dreads holiday season because he has to go back to his “straight” life. I’m here to say, you are not alone and together we will walk this road until we are charged up and live the lives that we’ve been called to live. The Filling Station prides itself in connecting people who share a lot in common because sometimes one person’s story, is another person’s breakthrough. I could learn a lot from your experience only, and vice versa.
No matter where you are, you can always find us right here, changing the world – one mind at a time. Our introductory theme for next week is New Beginnings. It’s not too late to start afresh and we have some nice articles to just fill you with positivity and prepare you for the next level of your life. Let us all strive for personal excellence.
We look forward to bumping into you, don’t forget to stop at The Filling Station. 15 October 2018. Do not forget! Since you’re here, feel free to browse around and just get a feel of where we’re going with this. 🙂
