Hey fellow bloggers and writers. First, let me say Happy New Year 2015! I hope your holidays were enjoyable. This is not only the first Wednesday of the month, but of the new year. The #IWSG has grown leaps and bounds over the past three years. Yay!!
I’ll introduce myself quickly. My name is Eva Solar and I started this blog last May after suffering some devastating personal losses. In the last two years, four people I knew passed from the same thing I had, a head bleed. All but one were younger than me, and I’m not even 50 yet.
I started blogging about it over at my other blog lilicasplace. Don’t be confused; I used pen names with my writing until I became comfortable with talking about my hemorrhage. Now I just use them mostly for fiction/story writing. With all that heartache, I realized I needed a place I could devote to jotting down my life post hemorrhage/stroke. I needed a place I could ‘celebrate the small things’, and offer comfort, advice, and resources to other survivors and their caregivers. That’s when this site was born. Enough about me…
For this month’s post, I’m going to focus on some of my goals for 2015. I’ll be doing the same at my other blog, if you’d like to pay a visit later. 🙂
The purpose of this group is for writers of any kind to share their doubts and fears, trials and tribulations without fear of being mocked or feeling foolish. It’s also a place where writers who have “been there” can offer wisdom and guidance.
Whenever anyone finishes a draft, edits their work, finds the perfect critique group, publishes their work, or has any other good news to share, this is the place to do it too!
The awesome co-hosts for this posting of the IWSG are Elizabeth Seckman, Lisa Buie-Collard, Chrys Fey, and Michelle Wallace!
Make sure you pay them a visit and thank them for all their hard work!
GOALS FOR 2015.
- Go to all Physical Therapy appointments ordered by my Rehabilitation doctor, Dr. K
- Work extra hard on this Blog-site improvement (research, posting, etc.)
- Get more into meditation as an additional method for my Pain Management
- Continue my Stroke Awareness and Prevention Advocacy
- Get more involved with my local church
- Although I’m doing much better, continue to find ways to keep my depression at bay
- Continue to take the time to enjoy the little things in life.
