When the going gets tough

The tough gets going

I was having second thoughts about my blog mission, last week and this morning I was not in the mood to go on. Then I got a post from WordPress saying that I am allowed to have advertising on my blog. I am trying to live off my writing and a little income from my blog will help. So by noon the day was already brighter.

Then Genie Speaks nominated me to  «One Lovely Blog Award» She said inspirational things about my blog that were encouraging  to me. So during the day the course changed. I got a clear sign from the universe. Keep going.

Thank you universe I really appreciate your instant messages and answers.

I´m blushing..another award!

Second award!

Holistic me: an absolutely beautiful blog with a holistic approach toward health and well-being, superb information and very inspirational,

Aww thank you!. I really appreciate the award, it is like a vitamin boost.

The Kreativ Blogger Award works in a similar way to a chain mail, in that if you are nominated, you then nominate seven other blogs for the award in order to accept.

To those I nominate (and for everyone else), here are the rules:

  • Thank the nominating blogger and provide a link to that blog
  • Spread the love by nominating seven other bloggers, including their links
  • Tell your readers seven things they may not already know about you

So, here are seven things about me:

  1. I am currently writing my first play
  2. I want to celebrate my 50th birthday walking the pilgrim road to Santiago de Compostela.
  3. I love skiing
  4. I had a very brief model career, including cover photo and runway appearance in bikini after I already was mother of three.
  5. My favorite instrument is the trumpet.
    Maria Callas in my favorite singer and favorite diva
  6. I finished my first novel in November and I´m rewriting it
  7. I am a red cross volunteer

And my nominees for the Kreativ Blogger Award are (in no particular order!):

1 Influence versus control inspirational blog that puts things in perspective.
