I Know What You're Thinking

And no, it isn’t because I am a mind reader. In fact, I think that one of the many skills I lack in the first place is the ability to read people. Attempting to perceive others’ emotions, thoughts and attitudes?  I can barely recognise my own on a good day. Alas, I digress.

“What in the name of fuzzy turtles do flaming Lotus Flowers have to do with anything?”

A lot, actually. They have a lot to do with my confessions, thoughts and experiences. Lotus flowers are the symbols of recovery from Mental Disorders. This may come as a shock, but I happen to suffer from several disorders, namely Major Depressive Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. From my own understanding, I have come to the conclusion that I am simply sad and unable to do much about it.

“Okay, we understand why Lotus Flowers are important, but why are they on fire?”

I think the answer is open to interpretation really. Anything that is flaming is automatically pretty cool. Unless it’s your head. In which case it is definitely not cool. (Pun intended).

I’ll leave it at that for now.

Don’t get me wrong, my head is filled with rainbows, unicorns and the like. The only problem is they are very sad – especially the unicorns.

Maybe one day they will cheer up, the lemurs will dance around in merry cheer and the leprechauns will hit the jackpot at the casino and stop pestering the rainbows.

Am I being overly optimistic?

I hope not.

What I do hope is that the confessions I present to you based on my daily majestic and oh-so-exciting life makes you smile and think of happy unicorns.

Because what’s better than seeing a unicorn smile?

*Insert picture of fantastically happy unicorn here - the internet is slacking in this regard*

Until next time!

  1. Hi Kendra! Welcome to the blogosphere!

  2. You are so brave for sharing this with the blogging world. You will never be judged here for anything! Welcome and hope to see you around here more. <3

    1. Followed your blog but it's not showing up...

  3. What an excellent post! Mental health of course is a topic that still even today isn't talked about or understood enough. I don't know anyone who hasn't been affected in someway by their mental health. The lotus flower is such a beautiful symbol for recovery. I see it all the time in buddhist teachings and meditation tapes. I've even considered getting it as a tattoo because of personal reasons.
    Anyhoo, welcome to the infinite blogosphere Kendra ^_^

  4. All I can say is in agreement with Vanessa! <3 I'm looking forward to reading more. X) xoxo

  5. Welcome to blogging! You have a nice blog design, and I wish you the best. It's interesting to note that many of those who have literally hit the jackpot haven't had happy lives afterward. Sometimes the richest people are the most unhappy, as they have so much to worry about. Only finding peace with God can hit the figurative jackpot in bringing true joy. Blessings to you, Kendra! :)


Glad to see you have your love goggles on! You go Glen-Coco :D
