The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Very Inspiring Blogger AwardMany many Fridays ago, poorly and sickly ol’ me got a nice little surprise when a fellow WordPress blogger from Poland, Magdalena of One Positive Blog told me she has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I’ve seen awards going around on WordPress blogosphere bestowed on bloggers by bloggers, so it was encouraging and exciting to finally receive one myself πŸ™‚ As part of this award, as a nominee I need to:

  • Display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award logo on my blog, and link to the blog I got nominated from;
  • Nominate up to fifteen (15) bloggers I admire, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it; and
  • Write three things that inspire me
  • So here goes, the bloggers I admire:
    1. http://booksmusicandmovies.wordpress.com/
    2. http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/
    3. http://tonningsen.wordpress.com/
    4. http://fortyandfantastique.wordpress.com/
    5. http://summerstommy.com/
    6. http://diwatainlalaland.wordpress.com/
    7. http://johnwhowell.com/
    8. http://geraintisitt.wordpress.com/
    9. http://somekernelsoftruth.com/

    And the three things that inspire me are:
    1. Confident people who are comfortable in their own skin– they don’t shy away from embracing their shortcomings and maximizing their strengths. Acceptance brings so much freedom and it makes people beautiful — the non size O woman who wears whatever she wants; the non native English speaker who goes ahead and makes that board presentation anyway knowing that good content and clear delivery trump bombastic words and flawless grammar; people who start giving back to society way before they make their own fortunes; the list goes on.

    2. Songs with great melodies and profound lyrics–works of art not just mere pop culture. Some examples: Sarah McLachlan’s Ordinary Miracle; the theme song from Frozen, Let It Go, and Vanessa Williams’s Save the Best for Last.

    3. Efficient, high-performing societies that are basking in luxury and the best of everything just because they have planned well, worked smart and hard, defied odds, and earned everything they have. These are reminders for me to continually strive to better myself because there is no greater feeling that knowing I am doing justice to myself.

    So here goes, and thanks again Magdalena for this nomination!
