Something positive about myself:

I’ve learned to change from being a negative person to (at least trying) to be positive about everything! I got aware of how I made other people feel with my constant whining and negativity when one person told me straight: you know that face of yours looks much more beautiful with a smile and also it’s a lot more inspiring for the people that surround you if you’re building others up instead of : being a drain to their energy! 

I was like: “wait! What ?? Did you just say I’m a drain to other people’s energy?” “Just think about it” and while thinking about it it really opened my eyes about myself and how you can actually drain energy from others ..or share your positive energy if you choose to do so. I also learned there’s studies about this power of positivity ..on growing plants, and even just the power of positive and negative words.. do you call your children bad names ..negative like wild, loud rascal .. then don’t be surprised to have one… this is why I like to call mine sweet angels ☺😇😉

The mind is a powerful thing. Choose thinking positive thoughts and positive things will happen!

My nominees: (I know not everyone likes to participate in nominations so if you find yourself on this list and don’t want to respond I take no offence at all. I just wanted to give you a wave!)

7 Facts about Me:

I had just done this a while ago .. so let’s see if I can come up with 7 more😉

1. I got bitten by a venomous snake(fer-de-lance) about two years ago.. totally my own fault for walking barefoot in the dark..living in their prime habitat

2.I love the sun and the beach! I know I would get bored though living permanently at the beach .. that’s why I keep it as something special .. I’ll just make short trips there every few months.

3.I make my own milk strainers and cheese clothes out of the same fabric.. fabric.. the daily prompt for today.. and I like to use the daily prompts like this 😉

4. I mix the best Mojitos with our own limes and mint that grow on our farm

5.I love cows.. (some of you might know this already) especially Jersey cows.

6. I have a hard time saying No! ..even if I know already I’m going to be overwhelmed I’ll say : sure, no problem I’ll babysit your kids that day – or whatever it is that you ask me

7.I love to ride in the back of our pick-up truck.

Liebster Award and Friendship Blogger Award 

I received both from Nash. If you do have a moment please visit his blog. I might have to start a “Save his blog!”campaign – as he threatened to quit blogging. (I hope he was joking!!) You will like his humor and he’s also talking about a lot of interesting topics. He was one of my first followers.. helping me build my blog and has  been one of the most loyal ones the whole time.. Nash!! Please keep blogging! I miss the bedtime stories already😅Screenshot_2018-02-01-03-11-46-1Screenshot_2018-03-01-06-10-46-1

The Friendship Blogger Award was invented by: Novus,

“This Award is for those we cherish in WP and to show them affection and to offer them our friendship.” – I found that description to be very touching. Novus created that award! How awesome is that?

The Seas of Mintaka. My new friend from Spain … also making homemade soap! If I’m right that is the reason we met .. because while I was searching for a milk soap recipe and a few tips on soap making I typed : homemade soap in the WordPress Search Bar and that’s how I found her 😍beside the super detailed soap making instructions an absolutely lovely blog!

That was it for today! Congratulations to all my nominees.. and if there’s anyone that would have liked to be mentioned in one of the lists .. just let me know! I can still add more😉

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I have some writing to do! I can’t imagine having read your blog that you were ever negative. I am so glad that you are your current ‘you…if that makes sense! You always seem so positive and determined to make the best of things!

  2. Congrats on your awards – very well deserved! And thank you for the nomination for the Blogger Appreciation Award. I’m so overwhelmed by the support of the blogging community since I started. I love following your blog and can’t wait to see what you post next.

    And your paragraph about yourself really spoke to me. I grew up in a household that could be negative at times and I still remember the day I made the choice to no longer be negative. I decided I was not going to be a victim to my life any longer and I was going to look and find the positive in things rather than focus on the negative. It was not a one time decision – I still at times find myself falling into that trap but it gets easier over time. I had learned to do this externally and now my journey is to learn to do it internally too. I was positive on the outside but I had a mean negative bully living in my head. I’m learning how to put a bit of duct tape over her mouth now! 🙂

    1. Thank you! I love what you write too .. your blog and comments. Sounds all so genuine. Exactly ..at some point you have to decide that you’re not a victim! Rather a fighter. Had to smile about that duct-taped bully in your head.. will do the same 😉
