Message # 11: Art as therapy

Hello Moonlings. I have been feeling low the last 2 days so I needed something to lift my spirits.

Creativity rarely lets me down so Le’Boo and I finally decided to make our vision boards. We have been meaning to make them for awhile now and they’ll serve us for the next 1-3 years or so.

The difference between his and mine is astounding. 😂

Le’Boo:

Succinct, simple, & efficient. ❤🚴🏻‍♂️

Moon:

Caotic, colourful, & extra. 💙🌚

Did anyone else make vision boards this year? Let me know I’d love to see them.

Peace and love,

Jaycee

Message #10: 300 Followers

Hello Moonlings, how are you on this fine Friday? I am awake here at 4.00am local time because of residual pain and discomfort from my surgery.

While that is inconvenient, I cannot help but be happy and grateful for my blog reaching 300 followers. Even though I’m sore and grumpy this didn’t fail to make me smile.

Moon Messages

Although I have said this before, I cannot stop thanking the lovely community on here. There are those who never fail to like my posts, leave me their thoughts and just be really supportive.

Especially as I had to take 2 weeks off which I haven’t done since January 2018. You are all still here and still wonderful.

As I have said in the past I will do something special if I reach 500 followers, but until then, all I can offer you is my heartfelt thanks.

Peace and Love,

Jaycee xxx

Hello my dear friends. I hope 2019 has been good to you so far.

My surgery went well however they had to make more incisions then I expected.

My recovery may be a little longer but I am optimistic. With this positivity I would like to know…

What wonderful things have happened to you already in 2019. Even the smallest happiest thing will make me smile.

Peace and love,

Message # 5 – Stream of Consciousness

Hello friends, I just have a stream of consciousness for you today because I don’t have time for my usual Friday post.

If you don’t know I’m doing a PhD and I have an annual review today. Although I’m nervous, I’m very excited to discuss my research. Here is a sneak peek at my presentation:

This week I reached 200 followers on this platform and I am forever grateful for each one of you. This community is supportive, creative, and completely kind. My whole life is consumed by writing and although I’m 28 years young, I only realised that 2 years ago. This platform is the place for me.

Stream of Consciousness

Whether I post a fictional story, a rant about traffic or simply a healing post on my mental illness, you are all wonderfully complementary.

It is people like you that make this world a healthy place for the imagination. Your simple acts of kindness whether that be a comment on my blog or something in your day to day life, is revolutionary.

If I ever make it to 500 followers I’ll do another collaborative post like my 100th follower post. Today though, all I have for you is gratitude and humility. We lift each other up, and no success is won alone.

Thank you,

Jaycee.

Message #3 – Blogger Recognition Award!

Before we go anywhere I would like to extend my warm thank you and gratitude to Oh Yes, They Did, for the award.

Please go check out their page and follow them, you won’t be sorry. You’ll find delicious recipes, fun crafts, and sometimes just some sage advice you didn’t even know you needed.

How This Blog Began:

In the beginning, as a young girl, I wanted to be a teacher. Then my English teacher gave me praise and guidance. That gave me the confidence to be a writer.

When I started this blog I had my lifelong dream in mind and finally, I threw off the shackles of imposter syndrome. I signed up to this wonderful website, and everything changed.

Surrounded by amazing fellow writers and creators, I’m no longer afraid of my irrelevance. Each day I see the value of individuality. I spend more time looking up to my fellow bloggers than worrying about whether or not I deserve to be here.

I’ve spoken here about my mental illness and how my words are magic, and I stand by that. Whatever the reason for starting your blog you are joining a wonderfully supportive community and you won’t regret it.

Peace and love,

J.C ‘Jaycee’ Lynch

Advice For New Bloggers

  • Writing is magic, you can communicate with someone you never met by putting words on a page. Remember this and you will always delight in your writing.
  • You are wonderful, important, and your voice deserves to be heard, never feel as though you’re not relevant.
  • If you’re not enjoying the writing process, it means your writers won’t enjoy it. Write something you would relish in reading and you’ll be golden.
  • Finally, whatever you do, never give up. Write even when you think it’s poor, it will clear your brain out, and the good ideas will come back around. 😉
