Questions for me from, Letters To Life
What is your life’s inspiration?
Friends and bloggers.
If this would be the last moment of your life, what would you do?
It would have to be time spent with my cat, Miley, my mum and a couple of friends.
Which was the best lesson 2016 taught you?
Get a bit out of my comfort zone.
Have you ever wished seeing a shooting star? If yes, what?
Is there any person whom you would not talk even if he/ she be the last on Earth? (Weird)
There are a few I can count on one hand, but I don’t name.
I am not going to nominate 10-20 people. Instead, if you are reading this, then I nominate you. If you would like to join in, then here are my five questions below:
- Which first, humans, or animals and why?
- Do you have tattoos? If so, is there a story behind them?
- Favourite place and why?
- At the beach, would you rather play in the sand, or play in the water? (Weird.)
- Future plans?
The start of this year has been an interesting, when it has come to birds in my garden. I have not seen it active before past years, as I have so far this year. It will be interesting to see what else I may see, when my garden progresses further this year.
I won’t be the only one who will be interested, as you will see in the photo below, of Miley. (My cat.) 😀 Miley was watching blackbirds, when this was taken.
Here ares some photos below of when magpies came to visit.
There will always be an introvert in me and I like that. That is me. It’s not going to change completely, as it has been there all my life. Don’t get me wrong, because you are not an introvert yourself, I enjoy other people’s company, but when I am out a lot, spreading myself here, spreading myself there and appearing spreading myself regular in one place that I don’t feel I can spread myself in another, then my introvert wants to come out to play, big time.
The more I am pushed to join in with something, or go somewhere, then also rebel will like to play too. (Although rebel below, is not looking like a rebel.)
Rebel likes to sit with arms over chest and refuses to move off the settee, with the curtains closed.
I need my space to energise, to be me and to switch off. If I don’t, I can explode with the pressure and you don’t really want to see me when I am like that.
I also can burn out if I don’t have the time to myself, to enjoy quiet time alone.
So if you know an introvert who needs to prepare how they spread themselves and also for their quality me-time, then let them have it. They are not being shy, or selfish they need to re-charge.
I love this page I found today with illustrations that show what it is like in an introverts head.
I don’t know if you have realised, but I have only realised how my blog was one year old, on 5th February. It all started with my first post, Hello world.
When I first started writing this blog back then, I did not realise how long I would write this for. I did not have any long-term goals for it, other than this blog be therapeutic for me.
I have met some lovely supportive people via WordPress and who are mostly bloggers themselves. You have shown me what a supportive, lovely bunch you can all be, to say you have not met me personally and only know me through my blog. (Although there are friends who read this too and have met me, or know me personally in some way. Some are even from when I wrote my deaf blog.) Although I have said thank you before for following my blog, I thank you again.
I have expressed some triggering contents in my posts. A lot of them was at the beginning of my blog journey and for those who have read this blog from the beginning, will know certain things I had to do, to help me on my healing journey after counselling had finished. I also revealed bullying and the effects. (As if I did not have enough already in my childhood.)
This year, I revealed for the first time publicly, how one time I was raped some years ago. I shared this after #ITSNOTOK campaign. I felt such relief by sharing this, than I personally expected and weight off my shoulders. I suppose because I felt shame underneath, which I know I should not. It goes to show rape can happen anywhere and #ITSNOTOK.
I have learnt from feedback received, that this blog is a positive inspiration for you in lots of ways. I am happy to hear this and while I feel the need to write, I will continue. This blog covers a wide variety of things as I grow. It will still cover depression etc… whether I share my bad days, or news I learn from elsewhere, but also it will still cover my wellbeing at times and learning I do. There is also my garden that has caught interest with some readers last year. I do plan to share further this year, than I have already. So if you want to continue following the garden progress, then do keep reading.
For my healthy eating motivation, I have inside my cupboard a, ‘benefits list.’ This has been in my cupboard for over two years since I started eating healthier. But after my admittance of how my eating has gone to pot a lot the last month, (Emotional eating) when it came to sweet stuff, I thought I would share my benefits list here.
I have re-wrote my list, as the other one I had is looking a little faded and tired. My benefits list has not changed and stays the same, as below.
