I started blogging shortly before the end of 2012, and by the 1st 2013 new year night have already been exchanging greetings and resolutions with many wonderful fellow writers out here.
Those people became my inspirational friends, devoted commentors, and a home where my ideas were gladly met and echoed.
For the past few weeks I’ve heard many heartwarming words, wishes and encouragements, and got the whole year recharge of good energy and motivation to go on and continue writing, connecting with people and sharing thoughts in a creative synergy.
This week I had a few nice surprises – excluding the metaphysical ones which I’ll tell you about later – here are my 2013 first tangible blog awards:
Liebster Blog Award
I’ve been nominated for The Liebster Award by a wonderful person Summer at
Thank you tons, Summer, for thinking about me when passing the award! I really appreciate it!
Liebster Award logo has been fascinating me from day one blogging, as it features a heart, and I am a fan of hearts!
I was only wondering how soon can I feature that cute Liebster heart on my site.
And then you probably heard me thinking that, and here I go :)
Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
And as a cute rule, here I should answer a little questionnaire to let my readers get to know me better, in case they are curious :)
So, my Qs. (Inspired by Summer)
1. What makes you happiest?
– Firstly, knowing that my family and people I know of are all okay and happy themselves, makes me the happiest person on earth.
I am an empath, guys, you know that. So in order for me to feel cool and happy and go do my things in peace, I don’t want to hear you go get in troubles, heartbreaks and arguments. Please, be safe, nice to each other and the nature.
Like that you will all be well and make me happy! :)
– Also, nothing makes me happier than going out in the serenity of nature and spending time outside in sunlight and meditation.
That’s how I connect with the source and get the energy therefrom.
– Besides all, learning and creating something new each day is a vital thing I can’t live without and something that fills my life with all sense.
2. Which element you love the most?
– The Ocean! If you ever looked at my pics, you’ve probably noticed that I always keep my eyes on the sea.
-The Sky is another source of my inspiration.
3. What was your favorite moment of 2012?
Well, quite many.
– I got in touch with a remarkable master of Reiki and Quantum Touch healer Mona Rifai Khalaf that took me to be her student and study the natural energy healing techniques.
So soon I can start practicing and helping people that need healing and empowerment.
– Another thing, I finally cast my writings public, yaay!
– But the happiest moment that beat it all was the day when the person I love told me that he loved me more than I could imagine.
And this one will be imprinted in me forever.
4. Your great spiritual discovery of 2012?
I was amazed to learn that when we take on some mission or activity that goes beyond selfish goals, we get connected to invisible but mighty protective powers and gain support therefrom. Each of us gets his/her own powers.
You can ask questions and get answers in signs.
Mine were overwhelming.
5. Do you like your personality?
– I have no idea. Never saw this person from the side, so I leave it up to others to decide.
I, on my part, like the spirit that I am. Well, at least endlessly thankful for the potential its Nature has given it, and I do all my best to educate and develop it further.
Who cares about the personalities? As they mostly are the customized camouflages we acquire in order to fit/fight/or comfortably survive in the society we have to be around in for a few decades.
Never take yourself too seriously, folks.
6. Your next dream travel destination?
India and Tibet.
7. A few simple things you love in life?
Cats, reading, walking in nature, debating with my highly awakened yogi sister :)
8. What musical instrument have you tried to learn to play?
– Guitar and piano. Wish it was an option to take those instead of Math classes in school ;p
9. Anything you wish you had learned earlier?
– Creative writing in college and Psychology from school grade 1 (instead of Math >:-) )
10. Do you like shopping?
Now you will be shocked – I don’t! :D
I just notice what’s missing from the wardrobe, take a clear pic of what I need and go grab it quickly from the nearby store :p
11. A wish for the coming year?
– Become a certified Quantum Touch and Reiki healer and start practice.
– Get down writing my first novel.
– Have a chance to see my loved ones more often as we are fairly scattered right now.
And now I should pass the Liebster award onto 11 other blogs I think should have it and announce those folks.
Hmm, this is a difficult one, because there are really many great bloggers out there worth every award.
I also guess this is the award for young blogs with less than 300 followers or so. But the number of followers is not always available on each blog, so I may not know how many actual followers each of my nominees got, so I’ll just make a pick.
I simply thought of these guys when looked at the Liebster heart logo! ;)
So my dear nominees for The Liebster Award (in no particular order) are:
Just follow the simple Liebster rules.
Acknowledge the one who passed you an award, answer 11 random questions about yourself. You can answer the same questions I did, as I will be curious to learn more about you :)
Choose 11 other nominees who you think should get the Liebster Award and let them know.
Feature a cute Liebster logo on your blog! Good luck!
Super Sweet Blog Award
This was the second award that I got shortly after the Liebster one :)
Well, I never imagined I’d qualify for a ‘super sweet’ title, but there he was, sweet fellow
appearing one morning with a box of virtual cupcakes and saying he thought of me when he got his box of sweets :)
Well, there was a company of other sugar folks he thought of while distributing the sweets, but I proudly got my cupcake award together with that wonderful crowd! <3
Many thanks and sweets to you Rohan! And thanks a lot for this cute yummy award! :)
As a rule I should also answer a few yummy questions here and pass the award to other nominees.
