Encouraging Thunder Award

18 Jul


Thank you to lonelyjean for nominating me for this award.  I was having a crappy day and this came to me as a surprise and made me feel a little better.  It also let me know someone was reading my blog and really liked, even though this person had never commented.  It goes back to my blog post I wrote a couple days ago on This is for me.

The rules are to thank the nominator, post the image award, talk a little about why you blog, and nominate some other blogs.  I’ve already done the first two and I will let you know a little about why I blog and the transformation of this over time.  I generally do not nominate people but if you read this, you are probably a mental health blogger and by the same turn are encouraging so I invite you to take this award if you would like.

I started writing as an online journal and was at a really bad place in my life.  I got a lot of comments and support on my really dark blogs.  It’s been over 4 years now and I have progressed a lot in regards to my mental health.  I’m not down as much, suicidal as much, and so needing support as much.  However, with this I’ve seen lack of comments of my “good” posts or some of my resource posts.  The borderline in me wants to write post to get attention, but I’m trying to be healthier than that.  I also changed the name of the blog about a year and a half ago because it no longer revolves solely around my mental health.  There’s other parts to me and my life.  I appreciate my followers and the friends I have made along the way.

    So glad that this cheered you up a little, it did for me as well. Before I started blogging I honestly never thought I’d find people to relate to, I’ve always felt so isolated, but slowly I am learning that through blogging I am not so alone. XXX J
