The time has come, please see below all the questions that you all asked me 🙂

Alot of people commented which was lovely but I had a large amount of people email me + I really appreciate that also.

Below are the questions I got asked 🙂

What has been the most challenging thing about blogging?

Finding the time, to be completely honest. I am out of the house from 6:30am till 7:30pm, I also go to the gym + spend a lot of my time w/ J, so it’s hard to find time. Over the past 4-5 months of my journey on wordpress, I have started MAKING the time, I tend to write a lot at work + schedule things so content is always going up. Like for example, I have content scheduled till the end of September at the moment.

Do you live near your family?
I live WITH my family, which I love ❤
What do you do at work? 
I work for a company called Val Morgan, I am one of the Operations Coordinators. Val Morgan is a company that looks after cinema advertising before a movie starts.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for Central Business District – so this is the central part of Sydney where everyone works – that is where I am based.
How many siblings do you have? What number are you?
I have one sister + she is 20. I am the eldest 🙂
How did you get started with your mental health posts?
I am one that is constantly reading other blog posts, books, youtube videos on mental health & I thought I would love to share things that I go through as well as coping strategies that I like to do to calm my self + my mind down.
Do you have a mental health disorder? Or are you posting just happy ways to get through the day? 
This question would tend to make me shiver – I never liked to admit that I have a mental illness until just recently. If you read I Must Confess… this has more of an in depth explanation on what I suffer. But, I have learnt to accept that I have anxiety. Anxiety doesn’t define me nor control me. My journey from 3 years ago to today is incredibly significant (You can read why in that post). I tend to post a lot of what I go through bc you are never alone, you never know what others are experiencing.
What made you start a blog?
I started my blog bc I was a viewer of other peoples blogs – I wanted to be apart of the blogging world to share my anxiety experiences, what I get up to on the weekend, what I bake/cook + my coping strategies on anxiety.
What is your favourite colour?
I am the biggest monochrome human living – white, black + grey EVERYTHING! You’ll see this when I complete my bed room tour.
How do you deal with anxiety?
It really depends on how bad my anxiety is that day. Something as simple as a bubble bath can calm my mind, sometimes I need to have a nap, sometimes I need to have a tea. It really depends on what my mind is going through that particular time.
How long have you had anxiety for?
I have had anxiety for about 3.5 years now, unfortunately I don’t remember what life is like without anxiety. It has been a long time but I am on a recovering journey + I have made a very big progress.
Where do you live?
I live in Sydney, Australia.
Have you ever traveled?
Yes, I have travelled to New Caledonia (only place outside Australia)
Where do you want to travel?
I would love to travel to Europe – Italy, Croatia, Greece, Barcelona, Swis Alps, France, London + soooo many more places. I’ve been meaning to do a post on this for over 6 months now.
Where do you work?
I work in the city CBD for a company called Val Morgan, we generate all the ads that play before a movie starts in every cinema across Australia + New Zealand.
Where is this place you keep saying your going in November with J?
Haha, I wish I could tell – after the 31/08 I can tell. J doesn’t know yet so he’ll be surprised on 31/08 so after that I can reveal where we are going 🙂
What is your most favourite quote?
God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers ❤
Have you thought about making a youtube channel?
Sooooo many people have been asking me this lately, & I truly don’t know – I feel that I am a great writer but not a great speaker – I think I’ll be too shy in front of the camera. I feel that I would be so hard on myself about the whole thing & have a negative mindset.
What is your dream job?
Since developing anxiety I truly wanted to become a counsellor – I truly want to be the help that others are for me. I know that some people don’t have the right support or resources around them & I would love to be that person for those out there.
I have been looking for over a year at doing a counselling degree at the Australian College of Applied Psychology but I am just stuck in the ‘what if’
Will you ever upload a progress photo?
I have been thinking about it for quite some time BUT.. I do get a bit skeptical of the negative comments I might get (I am just fearful, I’ve never received nasty comments but I just get scared) Keep an eye out, I might 😛
If there are any more things that you want to know that hasn’t been answered, feel free to comment below 🙂
I hope the above will help you get to know a bit more about me ❤
Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

  1. You should go after your dream. I think you would make a wonderful counselor. You re making a big difference with your blog. Imagine going into practice and doing that on a bigger scale. Good luck!

    1. Thank you Chrissy! It’s a hard one, I need to think about it – I have been thinking YEARS about this!
      Thank you, I wish I would make a big difference with other peoples life.
      Thank you for your kind words, I will keep everyone updated on the decision I make.

  2. I love how you told your sister’s age and used discretion with yours. Very clever 😉
    Praying for you on your decisions on your career. I have faith in you no matter what you or don’t do. God has gifted you with very patient wisdom.

  3. I think you’d do GREAT with a youtube! It does take practice and patience. Time as well, however I think you’d do great! Something to really think about.

    I hope you really follow your dreams of being a counselor. I was in the same boat of “what if” and in my journey of recovery… I’ve learned that it’s best to just “do it”. Never let those what ifs control you. It’s like me saying “Don’t think, just do it.” Or “Close your eyes a jump”. I’ve never met someone that regretted this type of huge decision.

    I would love to travel with you in Europe!! It’s defiantly one for the bucket list.

    I feel like we are SOO alike! I’m the eldest out of 4 girls, age 23. I live with my family too, and I do a type of work you would consider “Backroom clerk”. I make copies and do graphic design.. And I’ve had anxiety my whole life, and I’m just wanting to help others and share my experiences. I too want to be a counselor! Thank you for answering my question(s). ❤

    1. Bless your comment – I will now take the time to reply ❤

      Awe, thank you – I don't know much about editing so I think I'd struggle w/ that. I shall think about this ❤

      I think that my 'what ifs' control SOOO much of my life. I think I'll def have to think of this one bc its a 4 year degree so I don't know if that'll affect anything else in my life.

      Europe is a big thing on the bucket list – it's a MUST!

      Awwwww! We sound exactly the same! Hi5 sister!

      Are you looking into doing a degree?

      I wish you all the best on your anxiety journey ❤

      1. Of course!

        Plenty of youtube tutorials. Great idea like you said to look into it. Loads of work, but also very rewarding.

        I understand that, ‘what ifs’ did the exact same thing to me. You’re right, that a life changing event.. never know what could happen. I love how you see these types of things. I never thought of that.

        Hi5 sister!!

        I am! I’m wanting to work my way up actually into the medical field. I want to be a phlebotomist and try to work in clinical research. And if the time is right, go back to be either a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist.

        Best of luck to you as well!
