By appreciation, we make excellence in others our own property. ~Voltaire
I’ve decided to kill 9 birds with one stone (so to speak), and accept all the awards I was so generously nominated for by Rashmi. Thanksgiving is not a Holiday widely celebrated back in The Bahamas. Though in the past few years, there have been a lot of Bahamians adopting the American tradition of celebrating the Holiday, with feast of Turkey, Ham and all the dressings and trimmings. Here in UK it’s not even mentioned, other than among American Expats. For me, I believe we should live a life of gratitude and harmony, as such, EVERYDAY should be Thanksgiving!
I was nominated for this award by Anand who has shed light on some of the questions I’ve often asked about life, plus inspiration through his blogs.
I was also nominated by Drimhaus back in September, which I didn’t accept because I was too lazy to write down all the instructions, and questions after not being able to copy/paste them from his blog. Not sure what happen to the email notification for his nomination, but wasn’t able to find it. In any event, I’m giving him recognition now.
Both bloggers were some of the first to not only visit, but leave wonderful comments on my blog. It’s an honour to have been nominated by them. So here goes, the rules are fairly simple and some of you have probably Liesbter Alumnus.
Once you are nominated, make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too.
Nominate 5 -10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you.
Ensure all of these bloggers have less than 200 followers.
Lastly, COPY these rules in the post.
Questions from Anand:
What inspires you?

Through gratitude, Love, Kindness, and Serenity

In the ‘now’
