Creative Chaos Award
I would like to thank Geni at www.geniespeaks.wordpress.com for nominating my blog for the Creative Chaos Award. Geni has a spiritual and uplifting blog. Drop in and visit her blog.
This award has 4 tasks for me to do.
First Task: Three weird things I do: Okay. There are probably quite a few weird things I do, now to see if I can remember them. Ha ha
1. I do not like to leave my home until my bed is made. Now I know many that think that is anal and never make up their bed. My Hubby teases me and has asked me, “What do you think will happen if you don’t make the bed? Do you think the ‘bed police’ will show up while you are out?”
2. I know some people think it is weird that I am at the GYM at 6 a.m. Oh well, I enjoy it and it makes me feel good and that is what really matters in the end. I know my Hubby is most proud of me.
3. Now this is “really weird” as I just asked my Husband what do I do that is weird. He can’t think of any. I love it!!
Second Task: You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”
I am a “half full” type of person. No one is perfect although throughout many ups and downs in my life when I sit down and relax I can ‘always’ find a ‘positive’ out of a ‘negative’.
Third Task: You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your under pants and why?
I just don’t see myself getting into a situation like this at all. For the question on “what color of my under pants”? I just felt that was a private, personal question and I wish to not answer that one.
Fourth Task: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog.
1. www.currierose.wordpress.com A most kind hearted, inspiring Lady.
2. www.mypenandme.wordpress.com thank you Mary Ann.
3. www.worktomend.wordpress.com An amazing lady.
4. www.lifeyum.com Lisa you Rock! Busy, Yoga Mom.
5. www.mybeautfulthings.wordpress.com Sally is amazing on how she finds ‘3’ beautiful things every single day.
I am putting the “Lovely Blog Award” and “Versatile Blog Award” on one post.
I am thrilled once again to receive all these awards. I would like to thank Andrew at www.influenceversuscontrol.wordpress.com for giving this Lovely Blog Award to my blog. I am very appreciative. If you haven’t visited Andrew drop in and take a look around. I love when I see the words, “find happiness within” on Andrew’s blog.
The “One Lovely Blog Award” has similar rules to many blogging awards.
The Versatile Blogger Award
I would love to thank Marie at www.mariewetmore.com for nominating my blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. Marie is a Life Coach and I love to read her posts and learn new strategies of life.
The Versatile Blogger Award
Versatile Blogger Award Rules:
1) Thank the blogger who nominated you: Thanks Andrea Elliott!
2) Tell us 7 interesting things about you:
3) Nominate 15 Bloggers.
I do find it difficult to talk about myself as I am a rather private person. I always get nervous when I have to share about myself.
I would love to nominate these 15 Bloggers for the “Lovely Blog Award” and the “Versatile Blogger Award.” Some of them I have known for a wee while and some I have just met. They are all fabulous Blogs that I enjoy reading, if only I had more time. I wouldn’t get any sleep, ha. Ha. I find everyone of these Blogs inspiring in their own unique way. Thank you.
I thank every one of you that takes the time or has the time to pop in and visit my Blog. Please forgive me if I ever forget to comment as it would not be intentional.
I wish all good things to come your way!
My Blog has become one of my passions. A fun-filled hobby for me! I have met new friends and continue to meet more and more people.
A huge thank you to Mary at www.prytulka.wordpress.com . She is one creative and crafty Lady and I love visiting her blog to see what she is up to. Thank you Mary for passing the Liebster Award on to me.
I apologize for taking time to get this post together. Life just gets busy and then a time or two I forgot even though the reminder is on my desktop. Silly me.
I appreciate every Award sent my way! Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers with 200 or less followers and deserve to have some recognition. It is a great way to get your blog noticed.
Here are the steps that go with the recognition:
So many fabulous blogs to choose from, these are a few that I like to visit! They are unique in their own way. I do apologize if you do not want to accept Awards. It was tricky for me in trying to figure out which blogs I visit that have 200 followers or less.
~Lift your mood with upbeat pals!
A study out of Duke University and Canada’s Waterloo University reveals that spending time with happy friends instantly puts you in a positive mood, too! Why? Our brains are wired to subconsciously mimic the personality traits of people around us!
~Feel happier with the scent of grass!
In a British study, 92% of women said scents have the power to make them happy. And their top pick? The smell of freshly mowed grass! Inhaling grass’s distinct scent stimulates the brain’s production of mood-boosting alpha waves.
~Relax with two little words!
Say, “thank-you!” Expressing gratitude even just once a week is proven to relax your body and mind and increase feelings of optimism 15%. The reason: Blood tests show it sends your levels of the stress hormone cortisol plunging and keeps them low for hours.
~Tame tension with a softer tone!
Feeling anxious? That means your heart rate and blood pressure are elevated, which, in turn, makes your nerves even worse. Good news: A study in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine reports that speaking in a soft, low tone almost instantly reverses this effect, helping to reduce stress levels by up to 20%!
