liebster award

As I walk down the virtual red carpet in my lovely designer gown, I feel esteemed at the fact that I’ve even made it this far.    I was surprised actually, to receive a nomination from a fellow blogger who had been nominated for two of these awards,    I met mystical writer through Blogging 101 University.    Her blog is about crystals, mandalas and other mystical things that intrique and stimulate our senses.    Things I enjoy as well.     My mouth dropped open, and my eyes went wide as I thought about the first person I wanted to share this experience with and how honored I felt to be nominated.

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers, who have less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word and means: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.       Blogging is about sharing your experiences through written word, online to a community of people who like to encourage each other.    It’s about creating a community of people who love to write.

This friend who encouraged me to start writing, other than my Mother who always said I should write a book.     Is a man who I met, while following his cousins documentary.   He is a businessman with great advice, big shoulders and friendly manner.    I have always wanted to write in the past, but never followed through with my desire.  I am a person who loves to learn everything, and if I was a multimillionaire I would quit my job and do just that, study!     I have published authors in my family, and perhaps it is in our genes.   One of my cousins even won the Order of Canada for his published works.

When I thank my friend, he always says it was me and that’s where the words come from.  Well we all need encouragement to continue and was the person behind mystical writer blog, receiving a nomination.     Encouragement is what help people reach higher and think outside the box.     Well this one has been a great start for me in a new avenue.
