Q&A: The Answers Have Arrived

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.
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 😛
