Oh, the weather outside is frightful…
Honestly, the only thing frightful about the weather in North Carolina is that it’s 60º outside. The weather in this state has been abysmally unpredictable. We’ve had days where it will peak in the 40’s and then the very next will be 70 and sunny. I’ve been sick for two and a half weeks and I blame it on the weather not knowing what it wants to do.
Get your life together, weather!
In other news, it’s December 1st in my world. I finally feel comfortable amping up the Christmas music, redesigning the blog page (just a tad), and getting in the holiday spirits.
I would encourage anyone reading this to go to my homepage and check out the minor changes I’ve made to the site. I’ve updated our header image (It’s Christmas-y!) and…drum roll, please…
I’VE ADDED FALLING SNOW.
Yes, the WordPress iteration of snow has finally come back into our lives and it’s freely falling over here at Confessions. Love it or hate it, nothing says “It’s Christmastime” like falling, white specks on a web page. I wanted to add Christmas music that automatically plays when you arrive on the page but I realized that this isn’t Myspace. Oh well.
Since we have walked into a month where all eyes have been willingly or unwillingly turned to a fat man cascading in a red suit down people’s chimneys, I figured our blog topics could change to fit the theme as well.
Welcome to a Confession’s Christmas!
Catchy, isn’t it? It didn’t take much time to conjure up but I’m ok with it. All month long, the topics of my writing will be geared towards getting you into the Christmas spirit and keeping you there as the exhaustion sets in. I’m planning on producing a lot of original short stories, giving you holiday tips, and of course, having posts centered around the birth of Jesus Christ. We are a Christian blog so, of course. 🙂
What I am not going to do, however, is forsake the Mental Illness aspect of my writing. The Christmas season, and the winter months, typically bring on an entirely new slew of struggles for those with Mental Illnesses. With that in mind, we are going to keep plowing through our “Finding Who We Are” project, keying in on specific problems that arise during the winter season, and giving hope where hope is needed. Speaking of FWWA, our latest entry came to us yesterday and it was great! If you haven’t read it yet, follow the link here.
I’m extremely excited to tackle these next few months with you all. Struggling through depression in the winter months can be extremely isolating. Despite this, I’ve been greatly encouraged by all of your friendships and can’t wait to read and see what you all are doing to celebrate the holidays this season.
So, if you’re as excited as I am, make sure you follow the blog to keep up with us. Don’t forget to like, comment, or share down below.
You are loved.
