What does being special mean to you?…and contest December 2020

I heard it at age 8 crossing a bridge on my way to Northern California riding in the back seat of our family car, next to my sister and brother. And then silence until age 36 except for the brief moments when God through the Holy Spirit touched down to guide me.

Are we all special, denying it because one may be humble unlike me? I wonder these thoughts as I reexamine my life today. Much to be done so taking a moment to do something I enjoy, write. It gives me much joy!

Sadness permeates my thoughts when I hear certain music so I listen to the same music and ff through the songs that make me think about my dad, and Jim+ and Larry+. Now thinking about it again so will move on to this months theme.

The contest! No one has sent in a quote yet lol but that’s ok. I am going to post a quote every day and blog about it and if you like the quote and content then like it and by December 31, 2020 I will tally up all the likes; and the winner will be put in a hat and chosen by my son. The winners will receive some wonderful memoirs of Bethany Yeiser and her mom on their lives dealing with this dastard disorder schizophrenia and masks that say CureSZ

Who’s with me? Like or comment and let me know if this will be interesting for you!

peace, love light and joy

Excitement! New search on this blog and favorite quote giveaway!

I am Victoria Marie Alonso and I am a daughter, wife, mother, friend and a person with schizoaffective disorder diagnosed in 2008. This blog has been in existence since 2013. I am on permanent disability since 2015. Did achieve my Master’s and bachelors in 2012 but couldn’t handle the stress of working.

I have had good seasons and bad days, but through it all I won’t give up!

So on to the excitement! There is now a search engine on my blog. Just enter any topic you might like to read about and hit go and up will come any of my blogs of the topic of interest you have selected. For instance, negative symptoms, psychotic, suicidal, you get it. Anything! I am trying out this feature for a month and see if it helps my readers to navigate through 7 years, 361 blogs, of blogging. I have also cleaned up my site with the awesome help of wordpress. They rock!

And to start off the year I am giving away two books of chronicles of Bethany Yeiser and her mother, 1 of each, along with 2 masks that say CureSZ, a nonprofit dedicated to curing schizophrenia, fighting stigma and supporting those with schizophrenia. All you have to do is comment your favorite quote or your own favorite mantra and I will select the two winners on January 1, 2021!

My favorite quote is by Mahatma Gandhi “be the change you wish to see in the world”.

I haven’t decided on a theme yet for December 2020. So I will allow my reviewing of the entries to guide me.

peace, love, light and joy to all
