Journaling ideas to help with your mental health

 I've been on a quest for the last few hours for things to write about in my mental health blog. I didn't want to set up a blog as a mental health professional, I wanted to know what I should write about in a personal blog so I could have something to talk about on the days when I don't feel like I have anything to talk about. Some days journaling is easy for me. I sit down, I talk about the thoughts that have been circling or things I've been having to shoo away because they're trying to drag me down into rumination. Other days I just don't have anything to write about and if I don't have a purpose, sitting down to stare at a blank page seems rather pointless. So, to Google! Unfortunately finding decent prompts for mental health was a little challenging. I'm not a spiritual or religious person, per se. I don't want to write down prayers or inspirational quotes that I may or may not be feeling. I'm bad at coming up with "things". Writin

Reiki

 I haven't posted in a long while, but I thought perhaps with all the craziness going on in 2020 (which I thought was going to be MY YEAR) I should post that I am a certified Reiki master and can do distance sessions with anyone interested.  I can also do tarot card pulls for anyone interested as well. If you will donate to my Ko-fi I will pull a tarot card and post your results on my page. I am still writing. Hopefully I will have some new work published next year.

I Don't Blog Anymore

Have you noticed I don't blog? Probably not. I don't have anyone who read this. I was listening to an episode of Once Upon a Crime today and Esther was interviewing one of, I believe, only two Ted Bundy survivors. Something she said really stuck out to me. It seems to be common with PTSD survivors that they can't really talk about what they went through for one reason or another. While I'm not the survivor of someone literally trying to kill me, I've lived through some shit in my life and some of it wasn't pleasant. She said a lot of victims are blamed or shamed or not believed. And, to be honest, the only times I've ever really talked about what was done to me were met with anger and hostility and people telling me I don't know what I'm talking about. I remembered events wrong. She said she had put everything behind her and had built up her life and was living her dream normal life when one thing triggered her to remember everything that hap

Costuming at Marcon 2019

I have been accepted as the Department Head for the Costuming and Cosplay department for Marcon 2019! I am very excited to be involved with this 50+ year convention from Columbus as a department head. I worked with Marcon for two years as a second head for the Gaming department with one of my BFFs. The convention has moved from the the Columbus Convention Center to the Crowne Plaza North in Worthington . It will be held on May 10-12 2019 and we can use all the help we can get. Marcon is short for Multiple Alternate Realities Convention and is a multi-genre geek and nerd convention with a sci-fi and fantasy bent. We have a kickass gaming department, some of the best filk in the area and so many panels you can't catch them all. If you want a super amazing weekend, check out Marcon at http://www.marcon.org

Plush Unicorn Charger DIY

A lot of the projects I've been working on recently have come from other people's hard work. I want to share those videos with you in case you aren't on my Vero stream. If you're not, check me out on Vero. It's my social media of choice. I can't find a way to link to it but you can find me as Carrie Fulk Vaughn. I have been making unicorn plush chargers. The video for that is from 2 Cats 1 Doll and they're absolutely adorable. I wanted to share these because a little girl at Tee Jayes asked me where I got my unicorn plushie and I told her I made it. She was so enamoured with it that I told her mom I would post the videos on my blog so she could find them. All the little girl did through dinner was say how much she wanted to make one and how they could probably get all the stuff at WalMart and how she could make one for all of her friends. It was absolutely adorable and I wanted to be sure she could find the videos. Anyway! I hope she has a lot o
