BOOKTUBE AND SOCIAL MEDIA!

I don’t come on here and write as often as I’d like to, or as often as I know I should. There’s simply not enough time in each day for me to sit down, think and write out a thoughtful blog post. I am going to do better.

There will be days, maybe even weeks, where I don’t post here. But you can keep track of me through other platforms if you’re interested!

And, tomorrow you will be getting a link to my very first Booktube (YouTube) video. My channel is going to consist of a wide variety of topics, but I will mostly be talking about reading and writing. I hope you join me on this brand new journey!

A CHANGE.

Martha’s Granddaughter is so special to me. When I lost my grandma in 2016, I created this blog and used it as a bit of a release. It gave me something to do, something to put my time towards, so I didn’t sit around and think about the weight in my chest constantly. Martha’s Granddaughter brought me such joy and peace during one of the most difficult trials I’ve ever been through, and I will forever love it for that.

However, as I’ve grown and changed in the year since her death, I’ve come to realize that the name Martha’s Granddaughter doesn’t fit the theme of the blog I’m going for now. I don’t see this as a release anymore. I don’t view this blog as being my escape from reality.

I have anxiety, and I very often fear change. At the same time, I (not-so-often) crave change. I need something new and different and exciting to keep me going. So, that’s why I decided to change the name of this blog to Megan Witt.

I’m going to continue to write about my life, and my love of books, and God, and my future. I’m preparing to go to college in the next year; I’ll write about that a lot. I sincerely hope you stick around and go on this crazy journey with me.

QUICK UPDATE!

I’m very sick. I don’t know if it’s the flu, or bronchitis, or something else entirely, but I do know that I feel like (excuse my language) absolute hell.

I’ve been reading, and writing, and reading some more. I have a goodreads account that you can befriend me on if you love books as much as I do!!

I’m doing okay in regards to my anxiety. I haven’t left the house in a few weeks. I’ll be seeing my therapist in a few days and that should help. Here’s some advice – don’t do what I do. Don’t stay in the house when you feel like crap. Don’t push your family and friends away. Don’t reschedule therapy sessions three weeks in a row. Suck it up, so what you need to do, and you’ll feel much better. Let’s hope I’ll listen to my own advice some day soon!

I can’t wait for Autumn. I went on vacation for the first time in three years, and I got my first tattoo. That’s pretty much the only good that’s happened in my life this summer. Are any of you excited for Fall? Haunted hayrides, scary movies, cool weather, Halloween! So many good things. So much to look forward to.

I’ll be focusing more on this blog from now moving forward. & I promise, my next most will be much more exciting than this one.

I hope you all are doing well! Sending you all the love, happiness, and health this nasty world has to offer!

xoxo, Megan

ANXIETY | AN UPDATE.

I don’t know where to begin.

I’ve been doing well, for the most part. I’ve been trying to put my health first – and everything else has been on the back burner. Including this blog. However, I’ve struggled a lot in the past few months. Which is why I’m sitting in my house, alone, waiting for my family to return from our churches Easter service.

As of approximately eight months ago, every time I walk for longer than ten minutes, my lower back hurts so badly that it’s truly unbearable. In January, my doctor put me on ibuprofen and a muscle relaxer. Neither helped. So, recently, I went back and he (finally) did x-rays and determined that I have a bulging disc, and scoliosis. I’m set to begin physical therapy very soon – and if that doesn’t work, we’re going to look into other treatment options which, unfortunately, include spinal surgery. I’ve been stressed out about this for eight months – and the idea of having back surgery has simply made me stress even more.

My psychiatrist put me on a new medication for my bipolar disorder a few months ago; and I had a very nasty reaction. My heart would pound, I lost my breath very easily, and I would feel jittery and weak. My arm would go numb, and I thought I was having a heart attack at one point. So, I went to the emergency room only to be told that it was my new medication and, thank the Lord, not a heart attack.

And lastly, I went to Tennessee with my two older sister’s and my best friend three weeks ago for a youth conference. However, my anxiety went through the roof upon realizing that I would have to be in one large room with thousands of people. So, I spent most of the trip in our hotel room and only went to one of the many meetings.

Moral of this story – we all have struggles. We all have bad moments, bad days, bad weeks, bad months, and bad years. That doesn’t matter. The way we come out of those bad times is what matters. We can come out of them feeling negative, and angry, and upset. Or, we can be positive and we can learn from our troubles.

I hope you all are doing well. If you’re not, keep the faith and know that there is always a light at the end of every tunnel.

2017 GOALS! (What I Want To Do Before I’m 20)

Coming back to my blog after two months away, I had no idea what to write about. SO MUCH had happened in my life since last October. I’ve come a long way with my mental health, and my 19th birthday happened, and Christmas came and went. 2016, otherwise known as the year from hell, was finally over. Yet, I wasn’t inspired to make a post about any of those things.

So, I sat down and decided to sit down and make a list of my goals for this brand new year.

  1. LOSE WEIGHT.
  2. DO AT LEAST ONE 7-DAY JUICE CLEANSE. (I tried last year and failed.)
  3. GET A PROPER JOB.
  4. START COLLEGE.
  5. BECOME A BETTER WRITER/BLOGGER.
  6. READ 50 BOOKS. (you can follow my goodreads account here if you’re interested: https://www.goodreads.com/megnicole97)
  7. START SAVING MONEY SO I CAN AFFORD MY OWN APARTMENT BEFORE I’M 20.
  8. SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
  9. GET A TATTOO INSPIRED BY MY GRANDMOTHER.

In 2016, I learned that I have to have faith. In God, and in myself. I have to have faith that I will be able to meet all of these goals, and I have to have faith that, if I don’t, I won’t beat myself up. If I meet all nine of my goals, I’ll be happy. If I only meet one of my goals, I’ll be happy and I’ll try harder in 2018. And I hope those of you who have plans for this new year feel the same way.

xoxo, Megan
