Daily Prompt: Progress

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Progress.” When you look back at your blog a year from now, what would you like to see?

Two weeks down and one week to go with blogging 101. I have learned a great deal over the last two weeks and am looking forward to what the last week brings.

As the last week of blogging 101 quickly approaches, I can’t help but think how my blog will look like in a year from now. I of course hope that the progress, I make in blogging is to have a more of an educational aspect of  mental illnesses. Of course along with the educational aspect of my blog, I will continue doing what I am doing now, when I share my own journey of recovery. I am hoping that I will be more diligent in the education aspect of my blog.

In a year from now, I hope that the progress, I have made in regards to my both in the educational aspect and the sharing of my recovery, I hope that I have not only made progress with my blog but with my recovery. A major part of my blog is being open about my recovery with my mental health diagnosis. I realize that there is a possibility that my with my mental illness might have a few setbacks just like I realize that my blog might not improve as much as I want it to in the next year. Yes, I will be disappointed but Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Of course, recovery is an ongoing and life long process. A process that I will not take for granted because recovery is too precious. I say recovery is precious because not all those who have a mental illness survive. Unfortunately, that means some do die by suicide. I could have been one of many who died by suicide due to multiple attempts of trying to take my own life. I am beyond grateful that I was not successful of  taking my own life because I would not have been able to build a life worth living that I am currently living.

Since I am discussing a life worth living, I need to get going. I am on vacation and am visiting my brother and am going to hang out with him. Have an awesome day and try to enjoy what you have. Peace Out!!
