The Unique Blogger Award

I decided to begin blogging as a coping strategy to deal with a painful transition in my life. This was a little over a month ago. I can honestly say that it happened in response to a sincere prayer, asking God to channelize all my negative energy into a healthy channel.

I’ve made so many positive changes to my life since then.  Joined a gym, connected with friends I haven’t met in ages, become more tolerating of family. Most of all, I try to write at least twice or thrice a week. Earlier, I was wearing myself thin, trying to prove that I could handle it all at work. While I’m working harder than ever, I’m also taking the time to appreciate the tinier things in life.

The Unique Blogger Award!!! I’m pleased and touched.

Before beginning this blog, I had no idea if I had anything to write about at all, much less have people read and connect with me. But I have interacted with some amazing bloggers. Poets and writers of all genres. I am simply amazed by the quality of content. It certainly takes all kinds to make the world go round. And my world is spinning at the moment. With words!!!

I would like to extend my gratitude to the lovely Bassey Etim for nominating me for this award. Thank you Bassey Etim. Thank you for reading my posts and thinking me worthy. I am so very grateful.
She writes about all the subjects close to my heart. Life, her connection with God, blessings and her personal experiences. If you are not already a follower, please do visit her blog at Bassey Etim. I guarantee you’ll feel lighter in spirit.

RULES :

  1. Share the link with the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  2. Answer the questions.
  3. In the spirit of sharing love with our blogging family, nominate 15 people and notify them.
  4. Ask them three questions.

My answers to Bassey Etim’s questions : 

1. WHICH DECISION HAS BEEN THE BEST DECISION OF YOUR LIFE?

The decision to pursue a career in the creative department (advertising) is possibly the best decision of my life so far. Everyday is a new day, with exciting possibilities. I truly believe that this is what I was meant to do. Though it’s been a hard road, I still want to do this, more than I want to do anything else.

2. HOW WOULD YOU SPEND TODAY IF IT WAS YOUR LAST?  

This is a tough one. I’d like to spend my day with family. I’d call anyone I’ve upset in the past through words and deeds and say ‘sorry’. Finally, I’d spend my last few hours reading the Bible.

3. WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW?

That would be my mother. A woman who has handled whatever life has thrown at her with grace and a smile. Protected me fiercely and comforted me at my worst. A true role model!!!

Now, I will nominate 15 bloggers according to the rules. I wish I could pick more, but here’s my list. Please do visit their blogs :

1. Garfieldhug’s Blog
2. Kelvin M. Knight
3. Thrifty Campers
4. USA Through Our Eyes
5. Mr. Mel
6. MFCastillo
7. Andnowmiguel
8. Simple Observations of Everyday Life
9. Ivor
10. Sour balls
11. A Jaunty Life
12. George F
13. J Beauty’s Expert Amateur
14. Slasher Monster
15. Poet Rummager

 My Questions :

  1. WHO IS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW? 
  2. WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE THAT HAS CHANGED YOU?
  3. IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN NEW LOVE AND OLD, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? 

Thank you Bassey Etim.

Thank you everyone for being so kind to me, reading my posts and encouraging me. I love you all!

  1. Well done Karen, and thank you for your nomination, “Unique Blogger Award”, but I’m declining your very kind offer, I’m not quite comfortable with the receiving of “awards”, I’m more than happy with your continued visits and comments, and I graciously thank you for thinking of me. Your’s Sincerely Ivor..

  2. Thank you for this heartfelt post, Karen, and for nominating me. Did you know we’ve been blogging the same amount of time? What are the chances of that? It’s a tough week ahead, with three funerals to attend, a close friend and parents of close friends/godparents. I will reflect and pray on what to say, as I kind of always do, but more so this week it feels. Thanks again, really enjoyed reading this and all your posts. Glad you’re not writing yourself thin anymore. 😇
