Hello February! How’s it looking for everyone? I hope it hasn’t been too bad of a start to the new year. It’s been going fairly well for me (for now) – spoonie fingers crossed. Have a look at February’s linkup below, and I look forward to reading your thoughts, life experiences and goals for February and beyond!
What It’s All About
It is a monthly get together for anyone with chronic illnesses. An opportunity to share, to listen, and to learn from one another. I also think it’s a great way to provide insight into life with chronic pain, from many different points of view. All you have to do is write a short excerpt for at least three of the listed prompts, and publish it on your blog. Then click on the blue ‘Add Link’ button below to add your blog entry here. Voilà, you’re now part of the party!
A Few Simple Rules:
- Only 1 link per website.
- Do comment on at least 2 other blog posts in this linkup if you participate. Helping to spread the word on your social media is always appreciated, but not required.
- This linkup starts on the 1st of every month. There will be 5 different prompts. It will close at the end of each month before midnight. All timings listed are in Singapore time (+8 GMT).
- Pick at least 3 of the prompts to write about. 5 is best, of course! 😉
- We also ask that you share this main link to at least one of your social media outlets within the same month.
- Failure to follow these rules might get you blacklisted from future linkups. Let’s keep it fair for all 🙂
Prompts for the Month
You could be looking at something physically or metaphorically. You could look at and admire art works, nature, people, and even Pinterest feeds! You could also be looking back at your life, or looking forward to something in the future. You could be looking at new courses to join, hobbies to pick up, or even for a new doctor. Or you could be troubled with vision problems, and have trouble with looking at things 🙁
Playing is such an important yet often overlooked aspect of life. Are there ways we can bring some fun back into our lives as adults, or despite chronic pain? You could play an instrument, an old school board game, or digital games with your friends as a form of pain distraction. You could also be playing things by ear, or someone could be playing office or group politics.
Are there any new events, classes or courses either online or offline that you’re thinking about joining? Or perhaps you’re joining a support group or book reading club of some sort. You could also be joining some friends for a drink, or family in another part of the world. Or perhaps you are joining together certain parts of your house, or joining back broken pieces of yourself or your life.
If you live in a cold climate, the weather is literally stimulating, either in a good or bad way! You could also find a new book, diet, travel, routine or way of thinking invigorating.
Whilst many of us have ditched, or tried to ditch, certain bad habits or negative thoughts in December, such things tend to be an ongoing effort and process! You could also be ditching toxic friends or family, recycling unwanted goods, or unnecessary negativity. Or maybe you’re still dismantling your Christmas tree… 😉
You can find the previous linkups on this page, if you needed reference or wanted to read them.
