I received the notification last night that my fellow blogger, Paradoxical Sadness, has nominated me for the Spirit Animal Award. Needless to say, I fell asleep with a smile on my face because there is nothing like the feeling when someone appreciates your work, for the heart and soul you put into it. I want to thank her so much, and just say that I love your blog name, and your blog too! 🙂
The rules for this award are as follows:
- Once you’re nominated add the photo to your blog.
- Write a short (5 lines or more) description about yourself and what your blog means to you. Oh and if you were an animal, which animal would you be? (No buzzfeed answers please).
- Nominate 10 bloggers for this award.
I have completed number 1 already, so on to number 2:
I am an accountant, blogger, artist, yogi, skier, traveller and runner, to name a few things. If I’d been asked this same question 5 years ago I would not have said any of those things, because I well and truly had no idea who I was!
Writing my blog has helped me to discover, feel and share who I am with wonderful fellow bloggers on similar journeys. Despite being online, the sense of community and support that I feel from people has been such a comfort. Not one person has been unkind or disrespectful, and it has completely boosted my confidence to feel so welcomed and accepted – thank you fellow bloggers!
I started this blog while I was travelling last year, and it is now my life saver. I intend to keep growing it and sharing my experiences so that I can help others who have suffered from depression and anxiety. I believe there is a transition going on with regard to mental health, it is becoming less taboo and more accepted as a real problem, and I am driven by my passion to help people and contribute to this transition.
My spirit animal is a squirrel; I am nervous but inquisitive, and I won’t give up!
I nominate the following fantastic bloggers for this award:
All of you bloggers have helped me feel welcomed, supported and blown away by your creativity. Thank you so much! Onwards and upwards!
PS a shout out to my very good friend who wants to get back into blogging, and who I know can, without a doubt, do this 🙂 xxx
