Lovelier Everyday! :)


Dan
 of Hurdles to Happiness has been kind enough to nominate me for the “One Lovely Blog” Award.

My second in a span of 3 days! (I didn’t get time to update earlier)

Thanks a lot for being so kind to me. It has honestly taken me by surprise, but I feel encouraged and I will strive to stay lovely and become lovelier in future!

Dan is studying a subject I have always wanted to study – Creative Writing. I did engineering instead and am now stuck with a job that doesn’t allow me the time to pursue Creative Writing courses available around, and believe you me, I have tried over and over again…

That being that, I am super glad I came across Dan, and I hope to learn whatever little my bird sized brain can grasp from his blog. Thanks Dan, I am humbled that you found me worthy of this nomination. 🙂

The other details about the award and my nominations can be found here.

I Feel Lovely! :)

The Blazing Trail has been kind enough to award me with “One Lovely Blog” Nomination and I graciously accept the generosity bestowed upon me. This is my first ever award in the blog space and I am on top of the world!

I used to always wonder what one has to do to get any of these awesome awards hanging around like enticing out-of-reach fruits everywhere! I know now that you have to wait for a bighearted person to stop by and take notice! 🙂

Here are the rules of this award:

1. I need to thank the person who nominated me.

2. Share 7 things about myself that you still may not know

3. Nominate 15 bloggers.

4. Notify the nominees that I have done so.

5. Put the logo of the award on my blog site.

7 things not known about me are perhaps not of much interest either, but I will abide by the rules so here they are:

  1. I don’t talk a lot.
  2. I am forever thinking about one thing or the other (hence 1 I guess).
  3. When I am not thinking I am humming or singing at the top of my voice.
  4. My favorite color is Brown.
  5. I meditate, and am striving to be more regular with it than I currently am.
  6. I am a very honest person and I hate liars and manipulators.
  7. I love to dance!

And now is the time to spread some happiness! There are a lot of blogs that I have been fortunate enough to stumble upon and I would like to nominate them for this award! I have learned something from each one of them. I would also like to say a few words about each one of them (hoping that’s not a breach of any protocol! 🙂 )
