Sunshine blogger award

Hi guys 😀
the lovely and very sweet beckey from beckys mental mess has nominated me for an award, the sunshine blogger award.
Rather than do the whole award thing type the rules, nominate blogs, etc I am just going to answer her 11 questions that she has asked me.
So, here goes.

  1. Which do you prefer to watch, the Winter Olympic Games or the Summer Olympic Games, and why? The summer olympics, when I watch, because the summer is just a nicer time of year IMO.
  2. If you were to live by yourself [no outside contact], where do you prefer you live – the forest or the beach, and why? The beach! I love the ocean and its so peaceful, I’d be in heaven!
  3. If you were to choose a fictional character to sit and chat with, who might that be? Hmmm not sure, I dont read a lot of fiction, but maybe hmmm who? maybe someone like edward from the twilight series?
  4. Do you prefer to read, go to the movies, or watch TV on your day off? definitely I prefer to read!
  5. When you are nominated for any blogger award, how long does it normally take for you to answer, and create questions? usually a few days, to a week, sometimes I fall behind on my blog reading and answering.
  6. What one song always puts a smile on your face? cant hold us by mackelmoore!
  7. What do you fear in life [could include phobias]? bees, rats, mice, spiders, death.
  8. What advice would you give your younger self if you could? I would tell her to always be kind, because you never know what battles other people are fighting on the inside.
  9. If you could turn back the hands of time in your life, what would you have done differently, and why? I wouldnt have tried to kill myself, I think every day how lucky I am to have survived death so many times, as I tried multiple times to end my life.
  10. What is the wackiest outfit you ever wore in public [not including Haloween]? My Pj’s. I wore them out in the garden last week!
  11. Be honest now – did you find that I had difficulty thinking of questions to ask you, fine people? No, definitely not! These were thought provoking, you did well becky! xo


Friendly fill ins week 110

I am participating in the friendly fill ins for this week hosted by
four legged furballs

The questions for this week are:

1 My favourite scent is well…too many to mention, can I name a few? Well, I’ll break the rule and name a few of mine, since I cant just pick one. Rose, vanilla, white guardinia, the scent of the perfume le vie le belle, any scent of anything that is baking.
2 I hope to have a relaxing day tomorrow. I will read a lot, and sit outside in the sun.
3 A purring cat is…very sootheing!
4 Home is where I can be free to completely be me, that is, where all parts of my inner did system can be free to express themselves and come out to play and have fun!



I thought I’d participate in revenge of Eve’s challenge G2k for this week.

The rules:

Use the tag #g2k

Create a pingback to this post

Answer each question honestly

The questions:

  1. In what areas of your do you find it hard, to be honest with yourself?

I am least honest with myself in regards to my cutting, and other unhealthy coping strategies.

  1. Have you put in an effort to change this or do you ignore it in hopes it disappears? I try to change it. I work hard in therapy to try to come up with alternative coping skills to use.
  2. How does this affect other areas of your life? It causes me emotional turmoil and pain, it worries my family and friends, it causes me to lie to them and I also feel ashamed of the ways in which I have coped.
  3. Can you define the underline fear in regards to this? If so, explain. I worry if I give up my unhealthy coping techniques, I wont be able to cope with my emotions and thats probably more scarier to me than hurting myself or numbing my feelings.
  4. Do you find that you are more of an honest or dishonest person around others? I used to be dishonest but over the past few years that has changed, I now try to always be honest, because honesty is best, even if sometimes the truth hurts.
