Everyday Inspiration; Day 1: I Write Because…

Good Morning, World!!! I write for a multiple reasons. Reasons, I had planned to write about and reasons that were unexpected. Let’s start by why I started my blog. I started my blog for two main reasons. The first reason was to help educate people who don’t have lived experience that folks like myself who do have lived experience can live a productive life. It may not be productive in the eyes of a “normal” person but productive from my perspective.

The second reason I started blogging was to give those who struggle with a mental health condition/challenge that there is hope in choosing to live in active recovery whatever that may look like to the individual reading. Yes, I’ve shared by heartbreak and struggles here but I’ve gotten up and wiped myself off and hope that what I share give those who have lived experience some sort of hope.

There were some unexpected reasons I blog. The first happens to be advocacy. I didn’t realize that I could advocate here on my blog. Advocacy is something I love to do and am proud that I am able to do it on my blog. The other unexpected reason I write is that I have found that it helps me with my own recovery. My recovery means the world to me.

Thank you for reading. I appreciate all of you because if it wasn’t for you the reader I would not be writing on this blog. Thanks, again. Peace Out, World!!!

  1. One reason why I write is for school. I am currently a Senior in college.

    I write because I love doing it.

    I write because I am a blogger. Honestly, I started my blog because friends and family convinced me to.

  2. Believe it or not, your blog has helped me too. I can relate to you and feel comfortable sharing. I don’t have many friends, can’t handle social media, can’t get mental health help, and can’t find employment I can handle. I do enjoy being a housewife though: cooking, cleaning, mending things, decorating, doing laundry, and running what errands I can (can’t drive due to disabilities). Thank you for writing this. I’m glad I found you.

  3. Advocacy is a great reason to blog. Telling your story with all its up and downs I’m sure will inspire others. But above all, write for yourself- because you enjoy telling stories – all kinds of stories. That’s what I’ve decided for myself. All the best.
