Other Random Links to Things I Like
When considering what I wanted to do with the blog for 2020, I decided I wanted to branch out a little bit. I no longer wanted to focus just on Crohn's disease, but all of the chronic illnesses I have because they all affect me in some way or another every day. It makes me feel like I have a lot of balls in the air - and that's just with my illnesses. That doesn't even include everything else I'm trying to do just to navigate through life.
Feeling much like I'm constantly juggling with different sized balls that don't really want to cooperate, the ball logo only seemed appropriate. However, the meaning doesn't stop there. It's actually not a random design at all. Each ball is a certain size and a particular color for a reason.
Here's the breakdown:
The large purple ball represents a lot of things. Mostly the near and dear - Crohn's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, and even Chronic Pancreatitis. Purple also represents other diseases that have touched my life and changed me in some way, even though I personally do not live with them. Those include Lupus, Alzheimer's Disease, and Chiari Malformation. What's more, purple is also the color used to represent two other things that I feel very strongly about - Domestic Violence and Animal Abuse. That's why it's the biggest ball and in the front.
The next ball is teal. It is slightly smaller than the purple, but only by a little. It represents Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which affect me just about as much as the purple things. Teal also represents Addiction Recover Awareness which is another cause very important to me.
The green ball in the back is a little smaller. Green represents Depression and general Mental Health. While my depression isn't always the most prominent issue I have to deal with, it's always there somewhere, lurking in the background, making sure I don't forget about it.
Finally, the little black ball represents sleep disorders. It's just over there not doing much, but it's still very noticeable and a little annoying. Much like my inability to get decent sleep.
So there you have it, friends. The meaning behind the new Jenni's Guts logo. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And, now I can ask you, how do you like my balls?
Jenni's Guts has a new logo.
