- I know you are awesome, tell us why.
- You are my friends and tell us about others.
- Be creative. It’s alright if you can’t be.
- I give no questions to be fully answered, but let yourself go here.
Last Monday I was nominated by Carla Louise over at The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise for this award. She and her blog are both awesome; she stands up for other people, but more than anything she is a kind and caring person! I’d really recommend that you check it out. And thank you for the nomination!
Anyway, on to the award. Well, the thing is, this had been quite tough one for me, as I don’t think I’ve ever done anything that’s ‘epic’, nor have I been described as ‘awesome’ (let alone ‘epically awesome’!!). But I’ll press on, because I have to. That’s what I do. Every day. We can’t just submit to our doubts and doubters, we can’t just give in to our fears when things get tough. We have to keep going, to stay strong, and make it through these days – the bad days don’t last forever.
That’s the best I could come up with, I’m afraid. Through this blog and in every day life I try to stand up for those whose voices cannot be heard. And to remind them all that they are not weak, nor are they failures – no matter what their mind is telling them. They are incredibly courageous for having the strength to speak out about their illnesses and to try and make a difference.
As for who are my friends, well I like to think that I’ve got on well with pretty much everyone I’ve ever met. (Obviously some more than others). Inevitably, after leaving school, people drift away. But that’s life I suppose, they could quite easily come back in. I shall never forget how supportive my entire school year were when I told them about the depression and anxiety that I had been struggling with. They truly are awesome.
Right on to you fellow bloggers, this is the point where I’m supposed to nominate you for this award. However, I already know that many of you have received this award. Therefore do not feel the need to complete for the second time, but I’d still like to show my appreciation for some fantastic blogs and the people behind them.
Thanks for reading, I’ll leave you with something creative. These are the last few lines of a poem I wrote a while ago, entitled Tick Tock. (To read in full please click here.)
Once time has passed it’s lost forever,
Ties holding you back you must learn to sever.
From night to day,
From black to grey,
The beauty of tomorrow is that it’s not yesterday.
