veryinspiringblogaward3

 

On Feb 19 2013, Bird of http://everyonehasastory.me nominated me for the very inspiring blogger award for “Keeping the Blogisphere a Beautiful Place”.

That is so sweet and it is so lovely to think that I can be inspiring to someone.  The funny thing is that Bird inspires me.  She is one tough cookie and I hope to meet her in person one day.

 

The rules of the award are as follows:

Rules:

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.

2. Post the award image to your page.

3. Share 7 facts about yourself

4. Nominate 15 other blogs and inform them about it.

7 facts about myself are.

1- There is a side of my that is a goofy clown, aka Pinky the Clown

2-There is a side of me that is a fierce warrior.

3-I love to dress up to the nines.

4- I also love flannel and sweats.

5- I love hot weather and wearing barely nothing at all.

6- I love clothes that keep me warm, scarves, gloves, fuzzy socks and  sweaters.

7- I believe that one must always have a goal/dream to strive for in order to make life worth living.

There are so many wonderful bloggers out there that inspire but I am picking two and for the same reason.

There are two bloggers out there that inspire me–they inspire me to take a more gentile approach to life.  It is very easy for me to take out my sword and chop off a head or two but these two women through their blogs show me that in life there can also be a gentle, soft approach that can be just as effective.

Ok–I have not mastered the “gentle ivonne” yet working on it.

These two women are:

The Book that has inspired my life the most is, Illusions by Richard Bach.  This book was the gateway for me into another spiritual world and a different way of perceiving life.  It changed the course of my life.

http://www.amazon.com/Illusions-The-Adventures-Reluctant-Messiah/dp/0440204887

 

The Giving Tree

by Shel Silverstein,

this book is the very definition of how to love.

http://www.amazon.com/The-Giving-Tree-Shel-Silverstein/dp/0060256656

The Little Prince

by

Antoine Saint Exupery

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Prince-Antoine-Saint-Exup%C3%A9ry/dp/0156012197

This book defines the why of love for me

My two favorite quotes from this book are,

“Just that,” said the fox. “To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy
who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of
you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a
fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need
each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be
unique in all the world . . .”

&

The little prince went away, to look again at the roses.

“You are not at all like my rose,” he said. “As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world.”

And the roses were very much embarrassed.

“You are beautiful, but you are empty,” he went on. “One could not die for you. To be sure, an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you–the rose that belongs to me. But in herself alone she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses: because it is she that I have watered; because it is she that I have put under the glass globe; because it is she that I have sheltered behind the screen; because it is for her that I have killed the caterpillars (except the two or three that we saved to become butterflies); because it is she that I have listened to, when she grumbled, or boasted, or ever sometimes when she said nothing. Because she is my rose.”

 

The Last Unicorn

by Peter S. Beagle

http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Unicorn-Peter-Beagle/dp/0451450523

 

My favorite quotes from the book are again about another aspect of love and about truth.

“We are not always what we seem, and hardly ever what we dream. Still I have read, or heard it sung, that unicorns when time was young, could tell the difference ‘twixt the two – the false shining and the true, the lips’ laugh and the heart’s rue.”

“If she had touched me,” he said very softly, “I would have been hers and not my own, not ever again. I wanted her to touch me but I could not let her. No cat will. We let human beings caress us because it is pleasant enough and calms them – but not her. The price is more than a cat can pay.”

Lovely Blog Award


I have had the honour of being nominated for, “The Lovely Blog Award” by http://birdmartin.wordpress.com

Thank you, Catherine !!!!!!

She is such a wonderful and inspiring soul.  Reading her blog has helped me tremendously with my own rollercoaster relationship battle.

The rules are you have to state 7 things about yourself your readers don’t know already.

1.) The love of my life is my dog, Missy.

2.) My favorite color is pink.

3.) I believe we draw into our lives the people and experiences which help our souls to grow, even if it appears to be negative–there is always a blessing and a gift in it.

4.) My favorite place in the world is Jamaica.

5.) No matter how despairing some of my posts regarding relationships might appear I am still a hopeful romantic.

6.) God also brings into our lives the people who will be there as a support in times of need and sometimes they are cyber friends.

7.)I love to dance and I feel music and  I hope to inspire others through my music and writing or is it writing and music–cause I’m still learning the music.

I would like to nominate two people for this award but there are so many out there who are so deserving.

http://girlpleasegodgotthis.wordpress.com/  and http://apropheticwalk.wordpress.com/

These two women have also been sources of inspiration and encouragement for me in these past few months.

thank you, you have all put a smile on my face
