Yay! Another award nomination!
The ridiculously talented Muted Mouthful has nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! She is a beautifully layered individual with crazy talent and, as her blogger name suggests, an array of hidden perspectives. I always enjoy reading her posts. Check her out!
According to the person who nominated her:
“The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given from one blogger to another as a way to promote community and boost moral. Bloggers give this award to an equal whom they feel embody creativity and talent.”
In response to the nomination, I have to thank the blogger who nominated me and link their blog (check!), write a post and answer her 11 questions, nominate 11 other bloggers and let them know, write 11 new questions, and display the award on this post.
Here are her 11 questions…
1.) What are your hopes for your blog?
I hope this blog connects me to other like-minded individuals. I also want my blog to be a place where other people can connect and find support and entertainment. It would also be nice if my blog could become somewhat of a household name.
2.) Where do you go to find peace?
My bed and to God in prayer. When I need peace it usually means I need to be left alone (no interaction) and to have an anxiety free mind. In my bed I can lay down with the covers over my head and fall asleep. When I pray to God I get the chance to connect with the ultimate lover of my soul, lay my burdens down, and access the only person who can truly give me peace.
3.) What age do you feel on the inside?
This is a good question lol. I feel about 45-50yrs old inside because of my likes and dislikes and my perspective on the world. I have been called an “old soul” more than once in my life, even as a child.
4.) If you could change three (3) things about your country, what would you change?
I would change the healthcare system (ESPECIALLY how maternity leave is handled), the “justice” system, and how it is decided which occupations would receive what salary. I’m trying to keep this post relatively short so I’ll just leave it at that.
5.) Do you have any phobias?
No phobias, just things things that really annoy me so I try to stay away from them (ie: liars, people who smack when they chew).
6.) How would you describe your blogging voice?
I feel like I’m still trying to find my blogging voice, and I really haven’t thought about this topic. I think the tone of my blog is witty, somewhat serious, humorous, and highly opinionated.
7.) What is one goal you hope to achieve this year?
I hope to lose 35lbs by January 1st of 2019. Out of all my goals and things on my bucket list, that is the one that I am the most emotionally connected to. I’m making a couple doctors appointments and making some lifestyle changes so hopefully something will work.
8.) If a genie granted you three (3) wishes right now, what would you wish for?
I would wish for the ability to teleport (not through time, but to different places without the constraint of time and travel inconveniences), an unlimited amount of money, and wisdom to always choose the best outcome in any situation.
9.) What is your life motto?
“ Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
10.) What inspires you?
I am inspired by kindness and stories of individuals who have overcome obstacles.
11.) What advice you would give to a new blogger?
Write posts, like, comment, and follow other bloggers consistently. Write about what you love and try to connect with other bloggers’ stories.
I nominate Laura from Riddle from the Middle, Ginger Effect, Efua from Grace Over Pain, World’s Okayest Runner, Keji from Blackness Across Borders, The Moose Poop Diaries, Lee84, Leah from HomeSkoolHavok, Hidden Letters of Kindness, Jennifer, and TheBlessedRangels for this blogger award.

1.) If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
2.) Celebrity crush?
3.) If you had to eat one meal everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be?
4.) If you had a time machine, would go back in time or into the future?
5.) What would the title of your autobiography be?
6.) What is your biggest accomplishment thus far?
7.) If you can instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
8.) What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
9.) As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
10.) You have to sing karaoke, what song do you pick?
11.) Are you a morning person or a night owl?
