I got nominated for volunteer of the year!

so I found out yesterday that my supervisor nominated me for volunteer of the year. Our local volunteer centre holds a competition each year and crowns the volunteer of the year and the organisation that they volunteer for gets recognition and I think they also get some money and then the person who wins gets a trophy and a certificate and there is a day out at a posh hotel and food and all that sorta thing.
I would so love to win! But just being nominated is awesome too! Just the fact that she thinks I am worthy of the volunteer of the year is huge to me!
I will keep you all posted! I am not sure when the competition is over and when the winner will be announced but I think its going to be soon!
fingers crossed but even if I dont win I am so thankful to just be nominated!

So what is this award?


  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominators blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

How my blog started…well, I wanted to raise awareness of mental health, especially of dissociative identity disorder, which is my primary diagnosis. My blog also focuses on therapy and on my psychotherapy sessions. But over time it has evolved and now includes daily living, recipes, quotes, etc. I had an old blog under another name but I deleted it and restarted using this one about 5 years ago.
My two pieces of advice would be to be real, and honest. Write from the heart. And write what you know! Oh and write often and be engaging! Respond to comments! Ok thats way more than two pieces, lol!

And I nominate the following bloggers for this award!
trina of its good to be crazy sometimes
emilia of my inner mish mash
