MARCH MONTHLY AWARENESS LINKS

Since the end of last year (about fall time), I set up "Monthly Awareness Link" posts with the intention of sharing at least one each month and I have failed already at doing this as I had hoped, but they are still set up. 


I am a little late in this one but I am still posting it because at least this one day just took place this week, on March 30th, 2015. Better late than not at all. It is/was:


"The vision of World Bipolar Day is to bring world 
awareness to bipolar disorders and to eliminate social stigma."



I came across "Bipolar Bandit" blogger, who shared a very informative post on the right day (March 30th) with a great list of others but her entire blog is also wonderfully done. Psych Central also has "Top Bipolar Blogs"  along with many other mental health issues and articles because our "mental health is as important as our physical health". I'll get another chance at sharing this in May (if I remember) for International Bipolar Foundation Day (May 9th).

I have set these up now for every month, hopefully so I won't miss them ... and I remain AWARE of each one that concerns me personally and should for the rest. If I become aware of more I will try to add them here (the 1st of every month).

Here are other GREAT sites for NATIONAL AWARENESS DAYS/MONTH CALENDAR (in case I mess up again, at least you'll have these sites): DAYS OF THE YEAR; National Day Calendar/March
[Of course, looking at some of the events or those listed at MRE, I would not have posted or included them here, but at least you can be better aware by visiting them].

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
