The prompt for this week’s 200th Wicked Wednesday is The Best.
Now I’ve already written about the best blog posts of 2015 (including a section on what I think were the best WickedWednesday posts of last year)
I also included a few of what I think are my best posts so it doesn’t seem right to go over all of that again. One thing I have noticed is that a few of the best posts I think I’ve written have been created when the days have been so dark and have been feeling at my lowest.
That brings me on to what this post is going to be about. As this is a milestone in the history of the Wicked Wednesday meme it seems slightly appropriate to write about my personal milestones.
I have had over 61,000 blog views.
This is my 218th post.
This is only the 6th time I’ve participated in Wicked Wednesday!!
In 4 weeks (this post was originally started on Wednesday) I will be quitting my job.
In 8 weeks I will be catching a plane to Australia for at least a year (who knows how long I will actually stay away for).
It has been 375 days since I wrote this #sinfulsunday post.
That post was a massive thing for me to do at the time and some of the backlash from it really effected me. I tweeted about it earlier in the week and me doing that inspired this post by Cherry Tart Blog.
I’ve always wanted to do a year on post, a “This Is Me Now” kind of thing but as the 1st anniversary of this post drew ever closer I didn’t see the point in it as physically nothing has really changed. Yes I have been eating healthier, I have been running, if quite intermittently, I have lost just under a stone in three months (which really isn’t much, actually I think it’s pretty shit but slow weight loss is meant to be more maintainable so go me!)
My body may not have changed but my mind set sure has. I don’t hate myself half as much as I use to and that I think is the biggest milestone I will ever reach. The changes in my thought processes has been helped massively by the sex blogging community (and a very special friend who loves me just the way I am and tell me so pretty much everyday). Don’t get me wrong I still have down days and dark day but they haven’t been nearly as bad or as frequent as they use to be.
I’m going to use this milestone Wicked Wednesday week to say a massive thank you to each and everyone of you especially Rebel and Molly (who hosts my other favourite meme #SinfulSunday) You two keep this community alive and together. For that I am forever grateful.
You will never truly know how much you have all helped me and when I’m in Australia I may not be here anymore but you will always be with me in my heart and being the positive voices in my head.
