    Hello everyone,

    I hope you are all having a nice day.

    My background - Bit of a sob story (boo hoo,right?):
    I use to be very depressed, played games every day to cope with it, didn't go out to work, didn't see my friends, ate loads of food (didn't become fat though :eek:)

    I have made this account in May 2016. I remember that day fairly well as I just attempted suicide after getting out of A&E etc I made an account on here, but never really bothered to read into SEO etc

    Recently I have had a huge change, I use to have a friend who I thought I needed most in the world, but anyhow they are gone and my life has been going uphill every day since then. I uninstalled all my games, eating less, exercising, not self-harming anymore, on meds, and totally more determined than ever to achieve something in life


    TL;DR Life was shit, but not anymore

    My plan

    I am currently working with a talented artist to help me with this comic I am working on. It's a comic book based on Romulus and Remus.

    I am the writer, the designer of the comic layout, eventually I will handle all the business side of things, but currently, there is no business as I am still working on the first comic. I will hopefully be responsible for the business management, SEO, sales, art (learning how to draw etc), and all the miscellaneous tasks of managing a business/website/social media

    I also have another idea I would like to try out. That idea is to help out people using food banks by doing it differently though. I will explain it more when i have it rolling, this could be some time though

    I am currently listening to this person for motivation:

    Thank you for reading my thread!
    Have a great day and always work hard!

    I think the inspiring push comes from Gary vaynerchuck that is the name of the guy in the video. He has a great hustling spirit. You can follow him on social media to get some of his motivational Life quotes

    Yes you need to start something and believe in yourself

    Wish you success in your journey

    Good Luck on your journey, i have suffered from depression before, it is complete hell, now i live a clean healthy life and have kept the friends that were with me during the bad times not just the good ones.

    Welcome to BHW mate, glad your suicide attempt failed. :) Gary Vaynerchuck is a good guy, and will motivate the heck out of you. I would also check out Neil Patel and Pat Flynn. Both quite big and succesfull people who all started at the bottom in IM.

    Keep us posted on your progress!

    Thank you! I have followed him on facebook!

    It's been a long journey, but I really am starting to get better and to believe I am capable just like everyone else.

    I will do my best! I may not be able to update it every day, but I will try!

    Thank you.I hope you have recovered well Keep up that healthy lifestyle and keep on going :)
    "positivity breeds positivity"You never truly realise how powerful that is!
    I'm glad it has too! and thank you for your welcome message! Thank you for those suggestions! I will certainly check them out! That is good to know, journals are great tools to show progress and everybody loves to see their own and others progressions!


    My progress:
    Depression - Today I was doing gardening, always gets me out of bed, I love it. In fact when you struggle to get out of bed, just think about what you love the most. Anyways, today I have been feeling truly inspired.

    Comic - I have made a small amount of work on the comic. I have already written a bit of the story so far, so I am starting to make the comic layouts so my artists can draw.

    Food bank idea - So what I was thinking was growing some food and simply donating it directly to the food bank that way the people using these food banks can get fresh vegetables to give them a boost they need.

    Update

    Been working on my comic. Getting a draft version ready for my artist to do her work, already sent her some things to work on. I am trying to take my time with this comic, i don't want to mess it up, gotta make sure the viewers view if you will is right etc.

    I am currently volunteering at a Buddhist centre. They have a considerable amount of land that may not be in use, so I might ask them to grow food for them and for my food bank idea. Of course, i won't rush into it, I will grow food for them at first and then eventually ask them if I can execute my idea. I'm sure they will be happy to as long as they are not losing anything financially

    You too. Keep your own projects going!

    Update

    Had to redo the layout of my comic due to the resolution not being right for the page. Bit annoying but glad i got it sorted out early on so we don't have to redo the whole thing.

    Done for tonight. Felt productive despite the setback but i am happy with it

    Hey, guys! I have another update!

    I was looking into some low difficulty keywords and found a few related to porn, this could be something I can get into? I will have to look more into designing a website for porn etc

    Edit: Found another keyword for an unrelated topic! Finding keywords are fun!

    Maybe i should release the ones i don't use for others to use?

    Hey, guys! Just another update.

    Been feeling really good about this project! My artist has been doing her thing and she has produced some great stuff, perhaps I will post a picture sometime soon. The artwork is different to all the other ones, but I to try new things.

    I have been rather busy volunteering at a few places so that's why I haven't made an update. In fact, i haven't been able to do much work on the comic. Ah well, I'm free for now.

    Good luck with your journey op. It's great that you managed to pull yourself out of a slump and are doing something positive.
