Blogging within a community gives a sense of security and you know that someone will see what you’ve written. Over the past few months I have felt the pull to have my own blog which can cover anything. I attempted once before, but to be honest it was rubbish and I just didn’t have enough motivation to keep it up.
One of the things that I have realised more than anything is that this blog is first and foremost for me and my journey with mental health diagnosis and addiction. My life is consumed with this fight which is often lonely and frustrating. It’s full of ups and downs with unexpected twists which catch me out. My hope is that with time, I will be able to see the progress of my recovery through reading the blogs which will help to keep me motivated when I am ready to give up.
Whilst this is for myself, I also want to share it. If someone can relate, or if someone has been where I am now and wants to tell me and share their experience then I would love that, I welcome it. I hope people will join me on this journey and will be able to share in the highs and the lows.
The first thing I am going to do is the 30 day challenge. I found it via Twitter and shared it with others. I felt that it was something that I could do, push myself a little and focus my energies into being creative not to mention actually having to use my brain. So, tomorrow I will post further details of it along with the first challenge. I know others are already doing it, so apologies if you have seen it all before, but this is for me.
This for me is a scary step, I am nervous about ‘flying solo’ so it’s with shaky hands that I finish this first entry.
