Treat everyday as a new adventure

Liebster Award!

BLOG AWARDI was nominated by  Vanessa Wester for the Liebster Blog Award 200, an award designed for upcoming bloggers that have less than 200 followers and I figured I better get it posted, because I am getting close to that 200 mark. I have 196 of the most awesome blog followers a person could ask for and I thank you all! Much love and hugs to you!


Anyway, in order to accept and participate there are some steps:
1.    Tell 11 things about yourself.
2.    Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.

3.    Post 11 questions for those who will be nominated by you.

4.    Nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

5.    Get in contact with those 11 bloggers in order to inform them that you nominated them.

11 things about me
I’m feeling philosophical today, so I decided I’d share 11 things that I believe…
  1. I believe we should respect other’s opinions and beliefs, even if we don’t agree with them.
  2. I believe that everything happens for a reason.
  3. I believe that no matter how bad a person is, there is good in them too. (You just have to look for it)
  4. I believe that you can teach a child to be kind, caring, and respectful without yelling or spanking them.
  5. I believe that even when we think we know everything, we still have a lot to learn.
  6. I believe that none of us are perfect, but we should always do our best, at everything we do.
  7. I believe, even though the so-called experts tell us not to, that sometimes we have to be our child’s friend, and not their parent.
  8. I believe we all have the power to make a difference in the world we live in.
  9. I believe that “Sorry” is the most over-used word in the human language.
  10. I believe you should believe in yourself, even when others don’t.
  11. I believe that you should treat every day as a new adventure, because you never know what tomorrow might bring.

11 bloggers I nominate…Ugh, this is so hard for me! I nominate you, and you, and you…

It’s hard because, I don’t know who has under 200 followers, and then I don’t know if who I tag wants to participate, or has the time to…Okay, well here goes, and remember it is totally up to you if you want to participate.












And to everyone else, tag you are it! Yep, you heard me right. If you follow and have under 200 followers, feel free to accept this award from my heart. 🙂



  1. Thanks so much for thinking of my blog, Karen.


  2. Yes, I’m a mere baby with under 150! *sniffs* But the good news it’s going better and better every day 🙂

    Thank you for the award, Karen. I will do my best not to repeat myself when I disclose the 11 facts about myself. Your eleven pretty much sum up my own feelings, so I’ll keep away from those, too. Oh, inspiration, inspiration! Where are you?

    Loved your list! One that really stood out was the overuse of the word “sorry” I couldn’t agree more.
    Thanks so much for the nomination. I’m working on my list!
