Encouraging Thunder


Thanks so much to one of my very favorite bloggers, bylaurenhaley, for nominating me for the Encouraging Thunder award. I’m a relatively new blogger, and Lauren’s blog was one of the first I came across. I was really excited that she nominated me 🙂 Thanks again Lauren! Check out her fabulous blog.

So why do I blog? I started because I wanted to share my experiences with anxiety. I’ve had panic attacks since I was young. My daughter started having them when she was ten years old. Thankfully, our panic is now under control. But there was a time when I truly thought I was alone. I never dreamed that other people felt the way I did. It’s extremely helpful to know that I am not alone.

When I started on wordpress a couple months ago, I thought I’d find a handful of blogs from other people with anxiety. I found TONS! And every day I find more. I’m amazed at the wonderful, supportive community that’s out there to help people with mental illness.

We’re all at different points in our recovery journeys. I think we all help each other because of that. Sharing our experiences can encourage others in ways we don’t even realize.

I’m a writer, and I enjoy making people happy. My hope is that my blog is inspiring, motivating, and informational. I love photography, so I’m having fun incorporating  my pictures into my posts.

Here are my nominees, some of my favorite bloggers, who all encourage me. Please check them out!
