My 2016 Dreams

Everyone does the whole new years resolution thing and although me and Ben are trying to eat better, we haven’t really made any. But for myself, I have some goals, hopes, dreams whatever you wish to call them.

Firstly I want to be comfortable on a treatment. I am starting a new treatment in a matter of days and I hope this will be the one. But if it’s not, instead of living with it for several years, I will push to find something that suits me.

I need something because I am feeling the chronic tiredness something CHRONIC. 😉

Secondly, I want to finish my therapy and be happy about it. So many people who have therapy don’t talk about it. When you say the phrase “I learnt in therapy” it does make you sound fairly insane. But it shouldn’t. I’m not insane. I’m learning how to cope with something huge. My whole life and body has changed so dramatically over the last five years. I need help to learn new ways to deal with life. And that’s okay.

But I am coming to a point where I feel so empowered when I come out, that I am hoping it means I am close to fixing what needs to be fixed.

Next, I have done a pretty good job of being there this last year. I shut the computer and spent the year concentrating on my family. It felt good. I want to carry that on. I am bad at picking up my phone when I’m bored, but I am trying to put it down and live.

Lastly, I want to build my Youtube channel. I love Youtube. Whether watching videos or making them. It’s just awesome. I have so much to learn, but I want to do it. I want to connect with more people online. I love the community over there, its all warm and cuddly. I hope for my channel to have 2500 subscribers by 2017.

I want my channel to be about everything and anything. My goal is to build this channel and have it become part of my life.

So they are my 2016 dreams. Feel free to leave yours below and we can all join in with the journey.

Watch this space :)

The Blogging Paradox

Blogging has always been a strange place.

It’s supportive yet horrifying.

Like a hug from your mum whilst being jabbed in the ribs with a fork. 

It can be lonely, but it can also be a place where you never feel alone.

It is a total paradox.

I took a break from writing my thoughts. Mainly because I needed to free some space up in my tiny tiny brain.

But since returning, it has felt different.

Being away from it all, you can look back on it and see the cliques. The people who like to shout the loudest but back down as to not danger themselves with being someone who stirs.

It is super easy to pick them out when you stay silent.

Blogging has always been a place for different opinions. Whether it’s how you raise you children, the food you feed them and the way you school them, the difference is what makes it interesting.

It makes it a place to learn.

But then when you try and write about something that has been on your mind, something that sounds so ridiculous, but really could happen, you are wrong.

Because suddenly having an opinion makes it okay for people to poke, prod, belittle and throw snide insults.

I can read something, be offended, give my own opinion and move on. Because we are all different.

The world would be incredibly boring if we all agreed.

Having a difference of views and opinions doesn’t make a person bad, it doesn’t change them. It just makes them more interesting. 

So it looks like blogging has become a place you can have an opinion and openly talk about it, but only if everyone else agrees.

You are by no means allowed to be honest, look at real facts or spark a debate.

Because someone might not agree. And that’s bad.

It’s like I have gone back to the playground and I will tell on you if you dont agree! 

WHERE HAVE ALL THE ADULTS GONE?!
