Be Inspired!

I want to give a HUGE thank you to Life of a Minister Mom for nominating me for this award. It was happenstance that our paths crossed (not in the blogosphere) and it was that sort of meaningful coincidence that likely brought us here today!

Seven Things About Me:

  1. I love the outdoors and have camped in a cave, survivor style on an uninhabited island off the coast of Nyarit, Mexico.
  2. Even though I wouldn’t be where I am right now (which I am so grateful for), one thing I would change in my life if I could go back in time would be to have travelled more (sort of nomad style) before I had “settled down.”
  3. I was adopted.
  4. I am a twin.
  5. I’m closer to 50 than 40 but still get carded when I buy wine or beer (running is the fountain of youth).
  6. I’m passionate about healthy, gourmet cooking.
  7. I make at least one new friend every day (not on Facebook). Today it was Sunray.

My Nominations for the Very Inspiring Blog Award:

I started blogging because I was encouraged by someone else whom I met by chance; another synchronistic event. I’ve encountered so many interesting, uplifting and beautiful blogs and bloggers since then. Not all bloggers are fans of these sorts of awards and I appreciate your point of view if that is the case. But please know that I’ve been inspired, moved and transformed for our having crossed paths that I feel you deserved the honor. In no particular order:


Now for the RULES to follow when nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

  1. One act of doing something entirely for someone else, can inspire a many. You can inspire people by your writing, i have read your work and there seems to be no doubt that you very rightly deserved the recognition. Keep inspiring, keep writing. I will always be around supporting anyone who can inspire. 🙂
    Take Care and Stay Mystified!

    Sahbinah, sweetheart, so sorry for the delay! As you know, I’m in Spain and I’m having such a hard time accessing the Internet! I’m down to one post every eight days or so since it takes forever to upload photos. The walk to the village takes all the strength I can muster in this dreadful heat, hence the delay in posting. In any case, I’m managed to pin point the best times to get WiFi here are at 4pm (when people are participating in siesta) and after 2am. I’m glad I was able to log on now to thank you for the honor of receiving this award and to congratulate you on yours! Thank you! You are extremely sweet for thinking of me and I’m very grateful! Hugs for you from sunny Spain! 🙂

      Oh, and I forgot to tell you that my hat comes off to you for sleeping in a cave! I’m afraid I could never muster such an adventurous spirit! And I wish with all my heart that I too could be carded! Sigh. 🙂

      • Thanks for the kudos…I’m going to write about my cave camping adventure SOON. I was bragging a bit about getting carded, huh? It always makes me giggle bcuz I think, “Really, seriously? I’m old enough to be your mom!”

    • I’m so glad you are enjoying your visit in Spain. Your posts always make me laugh and think about life differently; inspiring. ;o)

    You have inspired me with each like to continue with my blog. Everytime you liked one of my posts, I was deeply grateful. I never felt good enough, and your likes validated me in a very deep way. Blessings

    • Your posts are always so thought provoking for me and have elevated my practices (running, yoga, writing). You are a deep thinker and have much to feel good enough about through the good you are spreading writing your blog. ;o)

  5. Thank you for the nomination, I’m very flattered 🙂

    Congratulations Sahbinah! And thank you so much for the nomination! I am intrigued about that cave camping experience too, and wondering if it is too late to start running…midway between 50 & 60 😀

    • Thanks and my pleasure…never too late to start running I think. Be gentle on your joints. I do yoga too to help with flexibility. Always listen to your body (I ignore mine and pay the price) ;o)

    Yaay, thank you for the nomination, Sahbinah, and congratulations on your award, very well deserved too! I am fascinated by your cave camping on the uninhabited island off the coast of Nyarit – have you blogged about the experience? xxx Ailsa
