The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshineblogger.jpg

Wβ™‘W! My first award. I did not expect this at all. It is truly a tremendous honour and privilege to receive this award. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness. You are so lovely and kind. Thanks very much indeed my beautiful friend Roshni Ramanan >>> https://roshniramanan.wordpress.com/

The rules are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to him/her.
  • Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post.

I really appreciate this award. However, honestly I am a type of human who do not follow certain things, and the rules all the time. Oopps! Uh-oh! I am in trouble now. πŸ˜…

I am sorry, but I am going to change this a bit. I promise to answer the questions provided, but I will not provide questions for my nominees. Perhaps, if my nominees would like to take part as well, they can simply answer the same questions provided for me.

I find it awkward to ask certain questions. We are all different, some questions maybe personal and private to others. It may feel like an interrogation. I respect boundaries and privacy. I will write about why I am nominating them instead. Since this is supposed to be an award, I want to dedicate this to my nominees.


My stunningly beautiful nominees:

My apologies, for some of you, I am uncertain about your gender. Please forgive me if I am wrong. πŸ˜” I Lβ™‘VE you all equally! In no particular order, these are my nominees:

  1. Thank you so much for your very kind and complimentary words about me. Thank you, also, for this nomination. I think I already told you in s different response that I have a Sunshine award on my blog. Received about 5 years ago, no I will not be putting this one on, even though it has a new look to it. I am grateful that my blog continues to bring sunshine and inspiration to my readers. I appreciate you, and thank you for the sunshine your posts bring to me.Β  Hugs,Jan Beekman

    1. You are truly amazing and humble! I am the one who needs to be thanking you. I am grateful for everything you’ve taught me. I am sure you’ve got plenty of awards already. Your blog is an inspiration to everyone.

I just wanted to express my gratitude to you all. You are truly a blessing to me. A ray of sunshine. Thanks very much.

      Uh-oh! I’ve broken the rules, and I literally felt like I was in the hot seat answering all the questions. πŸ˜…

  2. I’ll never forget this! My heart and my unwavering happiness of being nominated is a true blessing. I’m trying to let out some tears, but apparently I have a hard time letting out my feelings. You’re definitely one of a kind, and I’m humbly grateful for making a difference in your life. You’ve given me a purpose with continuing on my dream as a writer, and I don’t know how to repay you. I hope everyone gets to come across this blog for inspiration, support, love, advice, and hope. You’re definitely making an impact in the world, and I believe in you as I believe in Peter Pan (Robin Williams)! I’ll definitely work on the the nomination process when get a chance this weekend! 😁

  3. I’m not surprised that someone has given you an award. I always look for your uplifting posts…..beautifully gentle…. forthright and empowering. Thank you so much for your very kind words and for including me in your list of nominees. I deactivated the comments under my posts a while ago, as I wanted to create just one space on my site for comments. It’s in the menu section…here is the link https://justmairi.com/comments/ I love the way you’ve responded to the award…I too feel uncomfortable with most rules and formulas but I’m always more than happy to participate in my own way. Love & Peace Mairi xx

  5. Those were phenomenal answers! This is the best Sunshine Blogger Award post I’ve read. You handled the hot seat really well πŸ˜›
    I’m totally with you regarding social media and I especially relished the piece of advice. Keep this energy going ❀ ❀

    1. The last question was the hardest! πŸ˜‚

      Publishing some of my writings here has helped me a lot already, but you’ve actually helped me even more to improve and to open up a little bit. As someone without a social media, I am a private person. That’s why it was difficult for me to ask questions as well. My apologies, I’ve broken the rules. Oopps! πŸ˜…

      It was actually beyond my comfort zone. I was feeling hesitant to participate at first, but then I thought about you and my nominees. I deeply appreciate this award from you. I am touched beyond words. Thank you for the award. I am grateful because of you my comfort zone has widen a bit. Expanding our comfort zone is one of the best way to learn and grow. You are a blessing to me. Thanks very much. πŸ’–

  7. How wonderful that you have received your well-deserved first blogger award. I especially love that you are not following the exact rules but have adapted them to fit with what you feel comfortable with, Excellent!!!
    Thank you so very much for nominating me and your beautiful words of appreciation and praise for myself (and all your other nominees) are so heartfelt. The way that you didn’t just list your nominees but took the time to write about each one was outstanding and truly demonstrates what a shining light YOU are.
    As I have mentioned on a previous comment I chose not to take part in awards soon after beginning my blog. I had received several nominations within a short time and I felt I did not know enough bloggers to make my own nominations especially as the people I knew of were already nominated. My other reason (and main one now) is that to partake in awards with the merit they deserve (and you’ve certainly raised the bar!) takes a lot of time which I would find difficult to find.
    I must add that I do really enjoy reading the answers to questions on these awards and also it’s a great way to find more blogs of like-minded people.
    Thank you again and Bless you for your nomination and kind words.
    Love, Light & Blessings to you and all the other nominees.

    1. Oh! You’re so lovely! I am the one who should be thanking you. I am grateful for everything. Your light is always brilliantly bright. There’s a lot of things I still need to improve. I always gain new and improved positive outlook in life from your poems.

      As my grandma told me, “learn from your own experience, but try to learn from the goodness of others as well.” I think that’s the best way to translate it in English.

      Your poems are always positive and meaningful. I want you to know how much I value your wisdom, guidance and light. I can’t thank you enough for helping me. Your sagacity is stunning! You are an awesome light, just like a beautiful star! Thank you for filling my life with good thoughts and a lovely friendship. As I have said before, I am thankful you are my friend. You are a blessing to me.

      Indeed, the award takes a lot of time and preparation. It was a little difficult for me to answer those questions, but luckily, I’ve survived. πŸ˜…

      Thanks very much.
      Lots of love and dazzling light. πŸ’–

      1. Thank you Christine for all your boundless gratitude, enthusiasm and light, you radiate an immense positivity and joy in all your comments and I greatly appreciate every word you have given me.

        Your grandma was obviously a very wise woman. I’m gathering from what you said that English is not your first language, if that is so then you write it brilliantly because I would not have known! In fact, I had to look up the word ‘sagacity’ because I didn’t know what it meant!!! I love to learn new positive words, so thank you for giving me this in more ways than one! We are all continually learning from each other and Lighting Up the world!
        Love, Light & Blessings ❀

        Thank you. I appreciate your kind words. It means a lot to me. English is not my first language. Sometimes my grammar is incorrect, oopps! πŸ˜…

        I am so happy and grateful being a part of this beautiful light. Together, we are shining our lights! 😁

        Lots of love and dazzling light. πŸ’–
