Berrywinter’s Monday Meme “Hope.”

Hello Berry’s friends, fellow bloggers and little chickens.  Tis the Lord Winter Jefferson, taking over Berry’s blog again. At time of writing, she is (hopefully) fast asleep and has zero idea I’m doing this. If you’ve read her previous post, then you’ll see our lovely Strawberry Singh is dealing with a terrible heartache. She mentioned in her post that she isn’t up to a Monday Meme this week.

So I’d like to propose one myself, fellow bloggers. It’s going to be intensely personal, and I hope you’ll forgive me for this. Take a few moments on your blogs or chosen social media to tell us about a time you faced your own personal nadir.  When were you at your lowest point? How did you pull through and triumph to become the dazzling specimen of humanity you are today? When you reached out… who was there to help you back up again?

What gave you hope? 

Please, share your stories with Berry and the community – link them in the comments below when you are done.  Words, pictures, even interpretive dance. Let’s see what we’ve all gotten through, and maybe we can celebrate that the person on the feeds next to you is stronger than you ever imagined.

 

 

About Winter Jefferson
YES I have my own blog at incoldbloodsl.blogspot.com but sometimes I like to be outclassed over here too. It's fun dragging the median quality of Berry's blog down! You may know me as the blogger/model/producer/publicist pale vampire with the white hair, but you more likely know me as "UGH not that guy, I hate that guy."

  4. This is my own peculiar brand of hope, which might best be described as staying in the moment, but I hope it helps. <3 Berry

  5. I think you show another word for Hope is Friends.

  6. […] berry’s monday meme this week is a somber one. i’d like to first sit here and take a moment to give her my thoughts and love because she is going through a rough time at the moment <3 […]

  7. This is lovely! What a wonderful friend you are Winter!

  8. Sorry, I meant to type ‘favorite poet’ on my first comment. It’s link to Maya Angelou’s ‘Still I rise’ video on youtube.

  9. More of a repost of a meme pic I did once before with the hope theme. http://fav.me/d6ln7hd

    Sometimes a major change in life is needed. There will be times we need to start fresh and become a newbie at some things all over again. If only real life made it easier to use an alternate account…

    I myself am going through some changes. I am emerging from a 10yr relationship. While there were fun times it got to a point that the relationship could not continue. The situation got to a point that it was having a negative impact on my health.

    To spin a positive angle on all this I am now looking forward to the freedoms of single life again which will hopefully allow me to pursue some personal projects that I have had on the backburner for some time now.

  10. Look at my life, look at my heart; I have seen them fall apart.
    Now I’m ready to rise again.

  11. Strawberry..the full moon seems to be affecting many this month..myself included. Feel better!

  12. […] Winter Jefferson, one of Strawberry Singhs best friends, decided to reach out to us bloggers and ask us what it is that gives us hope. Strawberry recently got her heart broken bad, and all of us giving her hope in our blogposts is a way to show that we’re here and that we hope she feels better soon. […]

  13. I don’t really know if my story is of any good for you atm but just know I’m sorry for what happened and I hope you’ll feel better and that there is always hope as long as you have friends like Mr Jefferson ;)

  15. I think one of the best — and bravest — things you can do in the name of HOPE is share your story, because channeling your pain may be just what’s needed to help someone else through a tough time.

    ESPECIALLY if they think they’re alone… then they come across your tale, which reassures them that their problems aren’t unrelatable. And maybe you’ll reach out to each other, providing mutual support and strength.

    It’s gotten a lot easier through advancing technology like the Internet and Second Life, and I continue to be amazed at how we can form connections with people we’ve never met across the world — but an idea, a spark, a blog post can bring out the best in people who bonded due to shared adversity.

    Sometimes, something terrible happens to you that eventually leads you somewhere much better. “Is it a blessing or a curse?” It’s not clear at the time and merely saying “Cheer up” is bad timing, but this one of my fave stories (regardless of your spiritual beliefs) that highlights that such hindsight is interwoven into the very fabric of our lives: http://bit.ly/1bZoUDF

  17. Time s running out but true friends stay. We always must have hope and believe in best. Accidents r not accidental and when smthng happens in our lives, thats another step to become stronger.
    What s hope? Its a divine ray in our soul. That ray which never fade away even we think its all over.
    Was thinking about smthng unusual, so made this http://www.koinup.com/LADYBLANCE/work/524128/
    Under each pic there s a music ( under last one another song) which says more than words.
    If my post can help anyone a lil, i would be very glad :)
    Stay with peace and harmony with ur soul

    I don’t know you well Berry, but I was so sorry to hear about the pain you are going through right now. You seem like such a sweet and lovely person. I’m so glad to see such an outpouring of support for you and I want to add my voice to the mix since so many people have been brave enough to tell their stories.

  29. I don’t usually share personal stuff, so this makes me very nervous. I guess after a year of keeping it to myself, I kind of wanted to let it out. http://notjustapixel.blogspot.com/2014/02/its-little-things.html
    <3 Berry, it does get easier

  30. Silver linings will come Berry, just don’t feel bad about burying yourself under a huge fluffy blanket… Just tell people you are hibernating!

  31. i hadn’t intended to post for this, but this seemed appropriate.

  32. I am not one to usually share what goes on in my first life but what an amazing outpouring!

    One last cliche, I suppose, but when we share our joys, we magnify them; when we share our grief, it makes it easier to endure.

  35. I thought and thought and didn’t have a good story… I’ve had my pains and shames, but nothing that made a good “I survived my broken heart and you will too” story. So I thought a bit more and made you an online mix tape of sorts… you can check it out at http://sltimewellwasted.wordpress.com/2014/02/22/strawberry-fields-forever/

  36. I wanted to take a moment to thank you all so very much, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing your pain with me and giving me hope. Most of you had me in tears throughout. I’m getting better day by day, but still not myself as of yet. I’ve read all of your posts, I tried to leave comments as much as I could, but I just didn’t know what to say at times. This meme was definitely a hard one to read, but also very helpful.

    Thank you Winter, you’re the best and I love you so much. <3

    Thank you, all of you. <3

    I have this week's meme up now:
