And here I am again. It seems appropriate that I am writing this blog this week of all weeks (it's mental health week). I haven't kept up with my Character Challenge the past month because of one thing and one thing only - ANXIETY!!! (Da da dummmmmmmm).
Yes, my anxiety has been a little off the charts, and sometimes it hits me out of the blue, sometimes I can see when there's a possibility that it will grow (like a tiny spark that is flamed by life). This past month my anxiety has had to be managed, for the sake of myself (and others), and I have managed it, but it has meant a month off the blog and the challenge. And you know what? That is more than okay. If we can't read the signs within ourselves and beat with the rhythm of our lives/hormones/pressures, then we would cease to function.... or so I think.
Sooooooo.... what character trait have I missed - Volunteerism.
So, to maintain the challenge as best I can I am going to double up a month and do two character traits. I have yet to decide which month will be the double up, but I will let you know asap.
In the meantime we are in May now and that means we are in FRIENDSHIP month.
Ohhhh what a lovely month to be in and I will be spending loads of time with friends this month, including a special trip next week.
Keep an eye out for the introductory post on friendship tomorrow.
