Very Inspiring Blog Award

My friend and author of the fantastic book Twin Flames, Debbie Christiana nominated my blog for Very Inspiring Blog Award on her blog Curious Tales of Love, Magic and Mystery. I never miss one of her postings.

I am humbly honored. Thank you Debbie.

I’m supposed to tell you seven things you may or may not know about me, then nominate three others for the award.  I don’t often get the chance to talk about myself so I’m ecstatic.

1. I can’t walk down a flight of stairs without hanging on to the railing or looking down.  It boggles my mind how people can jog  down a flight of stairs and not look down.

2. I have a black belt in martial arts. You wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at my cute chubby face, but it’s true. I know how to inflict pain.

3. I suffer intermittently from an eating disorder. I haven’t seen the official name for it, but I call it Greedorexia. I get random days when I eat until I am so stuffed it’s almost painful (no vomiting for me though). Luckily for me the condition is decreasing in frequency as I age.

4. I owe all of my creative skills to my mother. The woman sewed, crocheted, knitted and loved to do arts and crafts. She passed this and the desire to create new things (like books) on to me and I will ever be grateful to her for this gift.

5. I ask a lot of questions. This is why I’m rarely talking about myself. I’m always inquiring about other people. Yes I can get annoying, but I'm cute so people get over it.

6. I can kill a snake with no problem (I’ve done it), but if even the smallest mouse should cross my path, I’m standing on a high surface and screaming like a little girl.

7. Someone once wrote about me that I’m a “force to be reckoned with.” I couldn’t figure out if the person wanted to shut me down in some way or if I’m a strong and powerful woman who likes getting her way and will fight to make it happen (I tend to lean towards the second option)

That’s seven things you most likely didn’t know about me. 
Now it’s my turn to nominate three bloggers who inspire me.

Click on their names to and find out why I find their blogs so inspirational.

If you've been nominated and don't want to play along or don't have the time, no worries. But if you do, here's how to play:

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • State 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate three other bloggers and link back to them.


  1. Thank you so much Nana for thinking of me. I was nice to find out more about you, for instance, you have a black belt! Wow...

    I'll see if I can do this.

    1. It was my pleasure, you deserve it, your blog is awesome and I look up to all the hard work you do to make it so. Looking forward to reading seven things about you.

  2. Congratulations, Nana. You deserve this and more. I also have a phobia of heights and can never climb or descend stairs without holding the railings or looking down.

    1. Hi Celestine. I love heights. I hate the concept of rolling down stairs. I'm glad to see I'm not alone.

  3. Great post, Nana and my pleasure to nominate you! Black Belt, wow! Good for you. I bet you could write an awesome fight scene :) Laughing out loud about the snake and mouse. My husband would like you around. His fear is snakes.

    I think you're a wonderfully strong and talented woman - thanks Nana's mom :)

    1. You are so awesome Debbie, even though you can't light a gas grill- still making me laugh.


I love reading your comments.
