Sunshine Blogger Awards

Recently I was lucky enough to be nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award not once, not twice but three times in one day.  I am mentioning each one and answering one question from each.

What small thing makes you smile?

When I am able to help my friends. To offer my own experiences not to say do it this way but to say this is what helped me, and leave it at that. I care so much about my friends and family that I always wish that I could wave a magic wand and make all their problems disappear.

What or who is your spirit animal?

Wolves are my spirit animal. They are very family orientated. They are strong and protective. Never mind that I find their howls soothing. My text message notification sound is a wolf howl.

What is a piece of advise that you would give someone who is struggling?

To please reach out and talk to someone. Whether family, friends or even a stranger (such as a help line) reach out. As trite as this sounds, it will get better. I have struggled with depression, I have struggled with life and yet I have always found that if I talk about it I can better put it into perspective. Or write. Writing has saved my life more times than I can count. Pouring out the feelings onto the page seems to purge them allowing me to move forward.

I love all three of these ladies and their writings. If you get a chance please do check them out. I have interacted with all three and they are brilliant young women I have been lucky to find within the blogging community. And I thank them for their nominations.

I chose to answer one question from all three as opposed to 33 questions in total. That would be a lot of reading and I truly am not that interesting. LOL

Again thank you ladies, you have honored me with your nomination. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.

    1. Thank you. Those were the 3 that I felt were most representative of who I am. Weird. Lovable. Family orientated (and I believe that my friends are really all family). Hate seeing people hurt and wishing I could make it all better for them. Somehow they forgot to give me my wings and magic wand when they were handing out the Fairy Diplomas. 🙂
