Recently (okay,not so recently,sorry for the delay,life’s been hectic),I had the absolute surprise to receive a nomination for this award,which made me,besides overly excited,very happy and grateful that someone really considered my thoughts and work worth the recognition.
Shamilah,thank you so much!I really appreciate you! You are amazing!
However,I couldn’t entirely accept this award without doing a little bit of research,in order to put myself in theme and figure out what it is truly about.So,for those who aren’t so familiar with what this award consists of(myself included),I got some relevant info regarding it.
1.It is just an “on-line” award,which means it exists on the internet only.What about my chocolate prize? But I thought..Never mind.
2.Its main purpose is to encourage bloggers and give them a boost of confidence,while getting to interact and know each other a little better.I like that.
3.The word “Liebster” has German origins and it means “sweetest”,”dearest”,”valued”,”beloved” and a lot of other similar words.Pretty great,right?
4.It consists of a set of rules,which I’ve learned are actually several versions.I believe they may vary,depending on the person who nominated you.Given the circumstances,I’m going to follow the ones imposed by my fellow nominator,which are:
- Thank your nominator.
- Share the award on your blog.
- Answer the 10 question asked to you.
- Notify them.
That being said,I’m going to respond the questions with all honesty and that way,you’ll get to know me a little better.Shall we begin,then?
But first,let me take my candies.
1.Who is your favourite author?
Despite the fact that I’m very indecisive regarding my tastes and since I’m still exploring what kind of books I’m more into,I guess I can’t name a favorite.But,I find Emily Bronte quite fascinating,her iconic book”Wuthering Heights” really got to me and made me appreciate her art and authenticity in writing.It’s one of the classics,so I’m going to say it has an endless fascination to me.
2.Who is your biggest blog fan?
I’m going to stick with Shamilah’s answer and say that definitely,my mother is my biggest supporter.And I honestly love that.She’s the first to know when I publish a new post or when a new crazy idea popped into my mind and I wouldn’t have it any other way.She’s the best friend anyone could ever asked for.
3.Why did you decide to blog?
To be honest,this idea of blogging had been bugging me for a while,especially because I fall in love with this art of expressing myself through words each day.It’s such a magical thing to be able to experiment my life by sharing and giving others a glimpse of happiness,hope or some well needed kindness into our world.I think that the inner me have always enjoyed the idea of sharing the experiences,lessons,thoughts,values that captures my mind and soul,that make me who I am,in order to help,inspire and motivate further the ones around me,including myself.I used to write in my diary since I was a little girl all kind of stuff and so I thought I could make a step further into my self development process and self happiness and start this thrilling journey with you.It’s very exciting and I must admit I am finding unknown pieces of myself through every post I am creating.
Also,I love that being flawed has never felt so good.I am aware that exposing my thoughts and inner feelings to the world may seem like a vulnerable,risky thing,which indeed it is,but I also have came to realize that expressing my inviduality and own differences are a massive part of my human self.Therefore,we all are unique in our looks,characters,opinions and ways of expression.
4.What is your best piece of advice to anyone,as well for those considering blogging?
Listen to your inner voice.Do whatever make your heart bursting out of joy,whether it’s writing,painting,photography,travelling,dancing,screaming from the top of your lungs to your favs songs.Regardless everything that may come in your way,remember that you are the most important and therefore,your passions come first.Express them through blogging or any other form you want,but always feel them wholeheartedly.Find yourself through your own art.That is what truly matters.
5.What is your goal for you blog in 2016?
I think that one of my main goals for my blog,which actually became an important part of me,is to keep connecting to beautiful people from all over the world,in order to be inspired and motivated,and in return,to bring them joy,positiveness and hopefully,some kind of inspiration,too.
This would make me the happiest girl.
6.If you could travel anywhere,where would you travel?
I guess one thing about myself that I haven’t mentioned previously is that I’m a wanderlust type of person.I just love the idea of travelling,getting to know cultures,traditions and unique things about a certain place.I’m mesmerized by what this world has to offer and I want to experience as much as I can,because that’s what makes me spiritually richer.Being a travelling freak (hah,I guess that’s the simpler form for my addiction),I would love to discover the world one step at a time and to fulfill one of my biggest dreams.
But if I could pick one place,Narnia would certaintly be at the top of the list.Who’s coming?
7.What is your favorite movie?
Well,here’s another problem.I have so many movies that I fell in love with that this blog couldn’t fit nearly half of them.What can I say is that every movie holds something special and unique in its own twisted way and into my heart so I find very hard to decide on one favorite.Though,if it’s one damn movie that always gets to me,regardless how many times I had seen him,is Titanic.Shamilah,I have to meet you one day and see it together! It’s a must!
Oh,and “A walk to remember” is very dear to my heart,as well as “Room”,which is the most recent one to me.
8.What is your favorite blog to read(besides your own)?
I’m still discovering people and incredible stories through this world of blogging and I must say I’m touched by most of them.Anyway,the ones that I am following at the moment are so beautiful,powerful and with a lot of inspiration for my complicated and everchanging self.
9.If you listen to music while blogging,what genre is your muse?
I usually don’t listen to music while blogging cause then,I would lose track of my ideas,so I need to be able to concentrate on my thoughts.However,when I’m in a lighter mood or depending on what the topic of my post is about,I will put some music in the background,mostly remixes of my favorite hits.
10.How did you decide on your blog name?
I’m still in the process of finding the right name to fit my personality and concept of my blog.I’m weighting between some options at the moment,but I want to surprise you when I will finally make up my mind.However,any suggestions and thoughts on this subject are more than welcomed and they would be a real help in choosing the best one.
My nominations are:
Thank you for following and being with me on my own crazy road of discovery and growth!I choose you because I would love to know some things about you and get to know each other better!
Can’t wait to see your answers! All the love!
