sunshine blogger award

DM over at Pointless Overthinking nominated me for this award! Thank you! I appreciate the shout out!
The Rules
Thank the person who nominated you.
Link the post back to them.
Display the picture on your post.
Answer their questions.
Nominate 11 bloggers.
Provide 11 questions for your nominees.

DM’s not messing around with these questions, and it’s taken me a hot second to get it together enough to answer, but here goes!

What do you do on a daily basis to achieve your dreams?
Make lists.
Journal.

What would you like to achieve by the end of this year?
To be truly comfortable in my environment.

What do you do when you feel the need to motivate yourself?
First I have a little “come to Jesus” with myself about getting it together then I make a list.

What easy change could you make in your life which would have a great impact?
Saying goodbye to Coca Cola.
And quite possibly, being less of an uptight control freak. Caring less about what others do or don’t do, or do differently than I do. Most importantly, remembering that caring less does not mean loving less. I can love others without actively wrapping myself around the axel giving f**ks about how they do what they do.

Which is the biggest obstacle you face right now?
Time management.
Lately, mine is crap. Even my mad planning skills sometimes can’t help me when I need to get it together.

Which area in your life needs most of your attention?
School.
(School school, not work school.)

What is your biggest enemy?
Being distracted.

What is your most useful hobby?
I’m going to have to say reading. As far as I can tell, it’s the simplest way to learn as much as you can without even getting up off your duff.

Which part of the world is a “wanted to visit” and why?
Istanbul, Turkey.
Why? I think because I’m fascinated that it’s been around for as long as it has. Byzantium, Constantinople, now Istanbul. (Y’all hear They Might Be Giants too, right?) I loved learning about the Ottoman Empire in World History. I’m awed by the way so many cultures came together to create this place!
That’s not really a why that makes any kind of sense, but all I can say is that I’m fascinated and long to be there!
St. Petersburg, Russia.
Why? History. Culture. The ballet. It would be a dream come true for me to spend time in this city.

What do you want the most in this life and why?
To successfully live my intention.
Why?
I believe actively living with courage and kindness, and doing everything in love will fulfill my soul’s quest in this life.

What is the most interesting you’ve learned about yourself this year?
I remembered something about myself this year.
I love solitary road trips. They’re good for the soul. And the brain. The time I was able to spend with myself was positive and filled with ideas.
Most of all, it was filled with kindness. I was able to really able to be loving and kind to myself.
That’s always a wonderful thing!

My Questions
This feels a little ‘Bridge of Death’ scene to me…but we’re going to trudge on anyway. Feel free to imagine me asking these questions in Terry Gilliam’s ‘Old Man’ voice knowing you’re not going to get catapulted into the ‘Gorge of Eternal Peril’.

1. What book most influenced you as a child/teen, and why?
2. What is your most beloved birthday memory?
3. What is your favorite destination, and why?
4. What advice would you give your twelve year old self?
5. Do you collect anything? If so, what, and why? (Y’all I’m using the term ‘collect’ loosely here.)
6. What is your personal theme song, and why?
7. What are you looking forward to?
8. Do you prefer reading physical books or on a tablet, and why?
9. With what person, real or imagined, living or dead, would you most like to spend one day?
10. What’s your guilty pleasure?
11. What is your spirit animal?

Three things about myself
I believe every single thing a human being needs to know is learned through play.
I’m consumed by wanderlust yet also a straight-up homebody.
I always trust my gut. (because it is never, ever wrong)

DM’s Questions
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a way to kind of journal “out loud”. The idea of putting my thoughts out into the world filled me equally with enthusiasm and apprehension, but it was one of the smartest choices I ever made.

What person do you appreciate the most and why?
Currently I’m going to have to say YBW, and here’s the why: He is kind, loves my daughters as his own, has the most ridiculous sense of humor, accepts and encourages me to be me, and he is teaching me how to feel safe in love.

What is your biggest fear?
That I’ll never be ‘good enough’.

Which quote you like the most?
(it’s a three-way tie)
“Do everything in love.”
“For a true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”
“Have courage and be kind.”

What do you love the most about our world?
That if you bother to look for it, you can always find kindness.

My best posts
(from my point of view)
Paul knew what was up
the power of forgiveness
paying attention to my gratitude
being a weird mom builds character
learning that love is safe
I am the strangest, weirdest, most complicated woman I’ve ever been.
