OK - I Give! Here's My Survivor's Meme

I’ve been tagged for a meme by Keepers at Keepers Korner .

Rules of the “Survivor Needs” Meme:

Please link back to the originating meme at Survivors Can Thrive , so people can see its origins, get ideas for their own self-care list, see who’s already been tagged, and maybe we can track how far this meme goes.

List 25 needs and 5 wants. Try to restrict your needs list to things that have to do with being a survivor of some sort of abuse, assault, etc. Your list can be anything…you want!
Use this list to remind yourself to get your needs met this the New Year.
Pass on this meme and tag five people to play this meme with you.
I need:

1.) Arabian horses in my life

2.) at least 8 hours of sleep each night

3.) to know my daughter will be taken care of after we are gone

4.) to eat healthy and drink plenty of water.

5.) to be heard

6.) to write my book

7.) a roof over my head

8.) peace

9.) to be more organized

10.) to express my anger appropriately

11.) to follow my dream

12.) to laugh

13.) to play

14.) to cry

15.) to exercise regularly

16.) to love and be loved

17.) to learn to be alone

18.) more sunlight.

19.) to be safe in dealing with the horses

20.) to take care of doing a will

21.) to have a plan for my horses if I die

22.) to be productive

23.) to learn to forgive when it's appropriate

23.) warmth

24.) to ride a horse every day if possible

25.) See's milk chocolate preferably carnels!!!!


1.) A National Champion Western Pleasure Horse

2.) A boxer puppy

3.) a riding arena

4.) a tractor

5.) AND like everyone else !! I WANT to win the lottery!!!

Now we want to tag:

Kahless at Random Kahless

Lynn at Spilling Ink in Public

Katy at Her Indoors


katy said...

you have a good list here, thank you for the tag i will work on this over the weekend x

Lynn said...

My needs are so... short right now. They have been condensed by the current situation, I guess. Maybe I'm not too bad off as the lottery still sounds good.

Kahless said...

Thank-you for tagging me. So much. I really wanted to be tagged and have been watching this meme go round hoping someone would tag me. I didnt like to ask.
So thank-you and I will do it at the weekend.

I need 8 hours sleep too but I only give myself 6!

Awww....great needs and wants!

Marj aka Thriver said...

Yay, you played! *happy dance!* AND, Yay! You tagged Kahless! When you said you weren't sure who to tag (that's probably one of the hardest parts for most bloggers) I was going to come here today to suggest Kahless. I also think you could tag April at Thriver's Toolbox. I'm sure she'd write a wonderful list.

Speaking of writing--want to write a book, huh? Sounds GREAT! I think you could be SOoooo much help to survivors and dissociators through a book...for so many reasons. I hope you go for it!

Kahless said...

Hi RR / Marj, I tagged April even though I don't know her - I tracked her down!

keepers said...

you have an awesome list here ...

Rising Rainbow said...

katy, I look forward to reading your meme. Thanks for playing along.

lynn, yes I bet you think they are, but my guess is they are great right now. I'm glad that the lottery sounds good! That is a good sign.

kahless, you got yours posted before I even answered your comment. You must have been waiting for this. lol

frazzled farm wife, of course my favorite parts are all the horse stuff! Can't live without my horses.

Marj aka Thriver, yes I did while it was still on my mind. I get so much going that I forget sometimes. Have two to take care of on the horse blog and need to do them soon before they think I'm a flake. LOL

I have already started my book. I want to find an editor or a publisher and get the thing in gear.

Kahless, oh good that you tagged April, then I won't worry about it, thanks for letting me know.

jip, I'm sure that you do. it will be an interesting read but probably hard for you to do.

keepers, thanks I finally remembered! I hope you win the lottery too, just not the same one so we don't have to split. I think we both deserve one all to ourselves. LOL

miquiecrew, thanks, it'll probably change some by tomorrow. I'm pretty fickle that way. lol

A great list of needs, everything seems to be about lists right now. *ponders*

Karma said...

Glad you played. I find exercise is more of a need than a want than I ever realized. It helps keep me on track.
