Did you know

I came across this quote and it is just perfect in my eyes!

“The secret to getting ahead is, is getting started.” (Sally Berger) 

When I came across this quote I knew I was meant to find it and share. So, of course I did.

This BLOG is looking for YOU!

Standard

To kick things off, I was discharged from the hospital today! I was welcomed home with love from my son, Ethan (waiting on the front porch), my dog, Buddy barking and jumping like crazy, and my boyfriend. Hugs all around! It was nice to come home to a clean house with nothing for me to do except rest and well, BLOG.

I am laying out ideas for creating my blog more user friendly with added features. This is where my fellow readers/followers come in. HEY YOU OVERTHERE, I’M TALKING TO YOU AND YOU AND EVEN YOU!

As one blogger to another, I am asking for your input. Each one of you. Please comment below with what you want to see when you come by this blog. Don’t be shy, honesty is the best policy! I created this blog not for myself but to reach others allowing them to truly know that they aren’t alone and someone is listening. 

I am looking forward to hearing your feedback, ideas, thoughts, and even bloggers who want to do an interview with me. If interested in doing an interview, leave a link to your blog and why you want to do an interview. I will make sure to get back each person. 

What was your favorite game….

I published this yesterday and decided to reblog it today, hoping that readers will be willing to share more because I have been encouraged by 2 bloggers to make this a weekly post. You can click on the link above for the original post but no need, here is the post:

What is your favorite pastime game or TV show to watch? Please comment below.

I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and a friend of mine asked this question on Facebook. I thought it would be fun to think back, before social media, about it. 
I was born in 1981 to give you an idea. I loved to play tag, red rover, freeze tag, hide and seek, jump rope, dodgeball, and take a big box outside and play house. As I got a bit older we got a trampoline that my sister and I loved to jump on. Before my parents got our basement finished we would skate downstairs then rollerblades came out. That was all the rage! Of course bike riding was fun too. I have always loved writing so I had my secret diary with key then a journal as I got older. In school, I loved getting notes in my locker, sleepovers, and talking on the phone. I can’t forget love letters and secret admirers.
When it comes to television, I mainly watched Saturday morning shows. My favorite was Saved by the Bell! Other shows I liked were Full House, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and of course after school specials. I loved my music and loved getting a CD or recording tapes of songs from the radio. The best is getting a tape from a boy with love songs. My favorite band/singers/boy bands were Aerosmith, Boys to Men, The Quad City djs, Micheal Jackson, Paula Abdul, Nirvana, Insync (Justin Timberlake), Jessica Simpson, and the list goes on.
Please comment below and share your pastime memories. I look forward to hearing from all of you reading this.

12 Step Program for Mental Illness (Anxiety, Depression, OCD etc)

12 Step Program for Mental Illness (Anxiety, Depression, OCD etc)

This is such an amazing idea! If you are looking for an outlet to express your emotions or whatnot please join in and help get the word out by visiting this bloggers site and I believe sharing this post will be even more helpful.

I’ve always wished that there were a 12-step program equivalent to Alcoholics Anonymous for mental illness. It wasn’t until the other day that I thought, “Oh, I should search Google for one!” I did find a few of these programs, but they didn’t completely resonate with me or highlight what I knew brought me success. I realized I needed to write one myself formulated from my own experiences and research. (Here is one I found online if you want to check it out: Emotions Anonymous)

I’d love to share the one I wrote with you guys! If you like it, feel free to join me in my version of Mental Illness Anonymous OR write your own 12 step program. Mine is more geared towards anxiety, depression and OCD since those are what I’ve struggled with. I’d LOVE for you to share here what your 12-steps are and we can…
