Bean Shower 2. Mission Accomplished.

I felt the pressure! – I had some bad pre-match nerves. Maybe you can have a bit of sympathy for not being overly psyched about having beans poured over my head. Cold and sticky.

However, I thought of the cause. I thought of how it’d be okay afterwards. My friends were wonderfully supportive. To get words of encouragement really meant a lot. I spent a lot of my life without friends nearby, living in a countryside area. Maybe I didn’t value my friends enough before. Having a strong support base is so important to achieve.

Buzz Killington almost struck again – Last time I did a Bean Shower I kind of interrupted a romantic moment for one unfortunate couple. This time, to my horror, there was an after-wedding ceremony walking through the park as we arrived. Everyone with not a hair out of place. I’m sure it’s for the best that they were just about finished when we arrived. 

Things I’ve Learned

Accept fear and nervousness as natural to our lives. Use it as positive energy. You get nervous when you’re about to do something big where there’s big risk, but where there’s big risk, comes big reward.

I love my friends. Okay, so this may sound soppy. But seriously, all the words of encouragement and support today really drove me on and gave me energy when I had doubts. Thank you so much.

Video coming shortly…! (Superb camera work by Oliver Thomas).

There are so many things I want to do with my life.
Football & life coaching, event organising and inspriring people out of depression…
Yet for me to do these three things, my path is obstructed by phobia, lack of funding and my own mental health issues.

One thing I want to change about myself is doing what I say I will. Keeping to my word.
I hope that from my blog, I can inspire people to believe that actions, however miniscule or ridiculous they seem, are much louder than any words we can speak or hear in our heads.

How often do you do the things you say?

 

Going on my head after 50 people share this blog

Hello! Those of you viewing my blog and know me only from school or from the past, I hope this is useful for you.

Maybe you will notice things about me or yourself that you didn’t notice before. I’ve always had a big nose mind, so I’ve not changed immeasurably.  You’ll still recognise me after a glance or two.

If you’re reading my blog and you have no idea of who I am, well hopefully you can get an idea within this post and others. I am generally a bit of a risk-taker so am worth watching even if just for entertainment value.

But my main hope is that  some of my posts can have an impact on how we live our day to day lives and how we view our wonderful opportunities in this world.

This is me from last year, feeling smug about the girl on my right

Here is a bit about me anyway, describing perhaps the motivation for this blog.

From 13 years old I was made aware of having ‘depression’. I saw doctors, psychologists and went to support groups. I’ve taken anti-depressents, drunk to excess and dabbled with drugs. I have inlficted physical self-harm such as cutting myself and then went down the road of social/life withdrawal to an agoraphobic level. Just going outside could be a traumatic experience. Suicidal thoughts were a daily occurance and getting stronger by the day.

I am now 20 and have finally found a way to manage my demons. So much so that I can now see how I can help other people through applying similar methods that I have used to overcome the invisible illness – Depression.

My goal is to help people and especially readers of this blog, to cope with their personal demons. We all have them. Together, we can build an accepting community that will listen to those cries for help.

Even the illustrious Paris Hilton has had her own life struggles

No matter how privalaged anyone may seem, we all go through the same life stuggles. Don’t be ashamed of them, speak out.

I hope to continue to make posts that ring true with the struggles of our lives.

I will talk about what I have done and my experiences and how I have overcome what were the pits of depression for myself.

There will also be some fun, I’ll post some silly images. If I get 50 people sharing  this, I will put a saucepan pot of baked beans over my head. 50 people, that’s all we need. I’ll post pictures and a video of the beaning.

Cheers all!
The question is though, should I go for Heinz or HP?
