Last week I presented a question to all of you if I should continue on with my “~🌼~ Working on Me (Self-Help) ~🌼~” Series, or begin with a new one that I was thinking of, called “~🌻~ Working on Us ~🌻~” – Obviously, by the title of this post, the answer was a unanimous, “Yes!”
My response to this is “Yay!” I’m thrilled to begin this new series with all of you.
We have so many prompts here on WordPress, that my thought was this… Do we have a mental health prompt within the mental health community? As far as I can tell, I haven’t seen any. However, I do want to make this clear… Because I haven’t seen one, doesn’t necessarily mean one doesn’t exist. I just want to clarify this, because I don’t want anyone to think I am plagiarizing on someone else’s blog idea.
Another thing I have never done is ever post a prompt before, so this is going to be done on a learning curve. ‘Please be patient with me.’ Thank you, in advance! 😉
Each week I will ask a question or questions pertaining to mental health or I will even go as far as posting a surprise. Your job if you so choose to join along, is to write a post on your own blog, and creating a ping-back to the original post.
It is up to you the reader to decide if you want to write a non-fictional or fictional piece, poetry, short prose… Whatever you like and/or whatever you feel most comfortable doing. Whatever you choose to do, I will, therefore, reblog what you have written. This is one way to not only promote your site but also spread awareness to all things mental health related.
As an added bonus… Since there are so many different mental health illnesses/disorders, YOU, the blogger can send me a comment as to what you would like to be the next question (s), and they will be addressed in future posts.
What is the reason behind the “Mental Health Prompt of “Working on Us” (?) It’s fairly simple actually. I’d like this series to be an all-inclusive mental health community blog in order to be a source of more support towards one another. Idea’s, suggestions, and advice can be shared amongst the group.
So, Are We Ready? I am going to start with two prompts. You can pick one or both, and again, you can choose how you want this to be written.
Prompt #1 – Question:
When you first found out that you had a mental illness/disorder, what was your first reaction? Explain, how this new revelation regarding your health affected you?
Prompt #2 – Picture:
Reminder: This is the first time I conducting “Prompts” so forgive me if I’m doing something wrong. 🙄
Select one or the other or both prompts. Write your own non-fictional, or fictional piece, or poetry, short story, (Whatever you want), then create a ping-back or copy your post and enter it in the comment section of this post.
Sound like a plan? If you have any questions before beginning this, please ask. If you have any comments regarding this whole idea of mine, please ask.
Here’s to Trial #1 of “~🌻~ Working on Us ~🌻~
Thank you, Kindly!
