WHY I HAVE CHOSEN THIS QUOTE:
Well, the obvious reason is my 4 day facilitating training came to an end. What an accomplishment.
There were ups and downs, moments I thought can I do this and then yesterday it all became clear.
Do I want to do this ?
Is this the best role for me to work within a the team at this particular organisation?
I’ve done workshops with healthy minds and I love the idea of and feeling that we are on our feet brainstorming, doing activities to get us thinking about whatever topic the workshop is about.
Healthy minds Support groups – are peer led support user led. They base their ethos on pretty much all of their work using a human centred approached ( a term some old psychologist dude called C. Rogers came up with)
So the focus is more on
empathy (letting people talk and listening)
I love this.
People are usually pretty fucking great at solving their own problems with a bit of support. I personally don’t believe carrying and doing all the work (living ) for a person is necessarily the best solution to a persons problems, in the long run.
Yeah, so I’m going to give myself a pat on the back.
It was a tough course.
I don’t get paid and I only just realised that yesterday. It doesn’t mean it is not rewarding in other ways.
I was so tired by the time my pillow hit the bed, the thought of putting match sticks to prop open my eyelids to keep going crossed my mind.
It is like a full time job because I come home and there is more work to get done in my private life.
I am having a brilliant time.
I do know one thing; from – the volunteering training and various courses I have been on with different organisations. Whatever I want to do, needs to be creative.
Creativity inspires me and lights my passion.
So I am on the look out for projects that involve me using more of my creativity.
I usually hate endings but I am okay about this ending because I know there is going to be a follow up and there is a what next plan.
Generally, I think in life -we always need a what next plan?
It is inspiring and motivating.
It encourages new beginnings and opportunities.

We are half way through the week. I did something I didn’t think I could do. So time to move on to the next goal.
There is nothing wrong with spreading yourself as a volunteer/career. I feel I have different qualities and skills to give and develop to different types of groups and charity organisations.
The key is – balance.
Tell me how you figure out that one please. 😀
Yeah so. I’ve learnt I am at my best when I am creative. I always doubted I was creative but by,
pushing myself and challenging myself and getting out there in the world has shown me I am what I always wanted to be.
I needed to convince myself and believe in myself.
I also did my BA degree based around acting and writing and thinking out of the box creative, so I need to use the skills I have.
I see so much light up ahead… what a difference three /four days makes eh?
If you can do one thing in life it is this ( be it one hour, or more often)
