Can changing your theme help your mindset?

Once or twice a year I change the themes on my blogs. Yes that is what I said blogs as in two sites. Not bad for someone like me online social butterfly IRL snugs in a safe cocoon. I write so I can help myself get better. I also want others to know they are not alone in this world. We can help each other one step at a time.

I think it was around September when the early stages of limited net access began. I had taken my laptop to the city in hopes of getting some net access to check email and get a few other things done. Once I figured out which sites worked and which didn’t I went on to my dashboard on WordPress. You wouldn’t believe my joy when the site pulled up on my screen. Out of the many places I checked were the social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc). They were a no go. I thought it was one of the sites down that passes through our area from time to time (little did I know it was something more.

So I went along and looked over my stats to see if there had been much traffic lately. At the time it had been pretty good for what I had done lately. As much as I wanted to post things I wanted to make sure that you, the reader, would be interested with the information that I posted. I did this with both Starting Over In 2013 and My Journey Through Life. As I was looking at the theme section I saw that the sites need a little tweaking in that department. Both sites had described both my life before my divorce/separation and afterwards. So the theme needed to match the message.

For My Journey Through Life, I wanted something relaxing and inspiring so the reader can read the message about how a person could see her life from a personal point of view. In the beginning you see this first time mom trying to understand the world of parenting. I had always loved working with children. I was the one that volunteered for the nursery even at a young age. I couldn’t relate to my peers, but those younger than me were just the right group to be around. Coming from parents that wanted to serve their community I tried to find my niche that world. You see how I look back on my life and try to help others who might be going through the same trail I did as an individual. I also thought a picture of a beach will describe a person walking through life trying to find their identity.

For Starting Over In 2013, I wanted the site to have a newsletter type of theme also it needs the feeling of getting a refresh on life. As I was getting ready for my divorce hearing I felt the need to reach out to other people and give them an idea what it was like to getting out of an unhealthy relationship. I was a single mom before my divorce and I wondered if what I was going through was normal. It was also my way of telling a personal story of someone who deserved a better life than what she thought she had. On this site I post information about abuse (emotional, verbal, sexual, and also the most known physical). A person doesn’t always know how bad it is until somebody else shows them the red flags. I also wanted people to understand that I actually had been there and still healing from that part of my life.

One of the things I wanted to do with my life was help people. Give them hope that things can change. Also give others a different perspective and hope that they would want to make a difference in our world. That was why I changed the themes on my blogs. It also helped me figure out what I wanted to say and find the right person to reach it. As I went through the changes of late 2016 (local and American politics, current events, and also various health concerns) I needed a place that I could go and just say how I feel. Ask the reader what their opinion was. Most importantly I wanted to raise concern about mental health and other topics that normally don’t get a lot of presentation.

If I can heal from the challenges of my life perhaps I can give someone else a chance to think they can to. It brings to mind one of my favorite films Pay It Forward with Haley Joel Osmet, Helen Hunt, and Kevin Spacey. Here is a young boy that decided to put his action to some hope raising thoughts. Here is my challenge for 2017 can you change a life and than hope that life can change others? Maybe this might be a way to fight the hate and bigotry that seems to have surrounded 2016. Let us change the world and history by changing lives today.

The simplicity of life is just being yourself.”

Everyone feels glum, distressed, or perturbed as a result of life's experiences; but if these feelings last for a long time, they disrupt your life. Learning to notice and identify these feelings and mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle takes practice. I will be sharing my personal stories and stories of individuals (on emotional issues) whose names won't be mentioned. Most of these stories will be written in the first person narrative. Promising you a noteworthy read! Cheers!
