The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Add these rules to your post.
  • Answer all the questions below.
  • Display the award picture in your post.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring and most important of all ENTERTAINING!

 

WHY DID YOU START A BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Firstly, to get out of my comfort zone. I’ve been reaching for things that help me grow as a person. I’ve never been a great writer and have trouble just relaxing and talking to people, especially about myself. It’s always made it harder for people to get to know me. A lot of times people felt I was standoffish because I “appeared” reserved and was kinda shy and awkward in conversations. When in reality I’m pretty laid back and a deep thinker I guess.

Secondly just to pay it forward in life. We’re all so isolated from each other. It’s nice to extend a hand of friendship, maybe a little advice, or inspiration. Maybe others will find direction in their lives or learn to love themselves a lil bit more because of my blog. And that makes it all worthwhile 💛💙💜

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?

Hmm. Well personal development wise, I have two. Unlimited, by Jillian Michaels was my first “personal development” reading and it kinda changed my life, and the course of my life. Second is The Four Agreements, by Miguel Ruiz, which is amazing!

 

WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE THE MOST?

Abusive people. Physical or emotional, abuse is abuse. Human or animal, abuse is abuse.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT THE MALL?

Cinnamon buns from Cinnabon and the Mochalatta Chill. I used to eat and drink these almost every other day when I worked in the mall. Contributor to all my weight gain and not getting up off the couch. Thankfully, when we moved to Virginia the nearest is about an hour away. Now I only see them when we are on the road to New Jersey or Ohio!! I avoid them! Do you know a Cinnabon Classic Roll has 880 😧 calories and none of them are good for you!

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PAST TIME?

 

Going to the beach, working out, walking/running/hiking, traveling, cooking, volunteering, activism, spending time with those I love (including my furbabies)!

Blog Awards

Back when I first started blogging I was nominated for a couple awards. I was clueless and had no idea what they were or what to do so I never participated 😞  I’ve been looking up info about blog awards. I found this extremely helpful blog post about the Liebster Award and wanted to share it with you in case you were as clueless about awards as I was.
