I started this blog to share my experience with mental health issues with the hope that I could help others feel less alone. To change the conversation about depression and anxiety and PTSD to a more honest and accepting. I still hope it does that, but it is much harder than I thought. Getting my thoughts clear enough to share in writing is a challenge for me, one I don’t always feel up for. I get overwhelmed with ideas and possible topics that even narrowing them down to start writing feels impossible. And feeling overwhelmed often leads to feeling inept and it just goes downhill from there.
I am told that to have a successful blog I should narrow my focus, find my niche and create a plan. I know this is good advice, but it simply doesn’t work for me, at least not now. So I have decided to expand my focus of what I share with my “Thriving in a Crazy World” community as I believe it is all part of my journey to improved mental and physical health. I am not going to assume I know what you (the reader) wants from me, but simply offer what I can and you can take from it what you like. Specifically, I am going to share more about my creative passions and my adventures. Because as I have allowed these two areas of my life to expand, my sense of wellbeing and belonging has also expanded.
