One Lovely Blog Award

Thank You, Iman

My heartfelt thanks to imankingblog for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award.

I can’t recall when I began to follow Iman’s blog, but I make sure to read every one of her posts.  Each one, has met my need to view life through a different lens as I meander through this season of life learning, exploring and searching to expand my awareness.

Last month, encouragement from Iman, led me to write and post my first poem.  While I didn’t discover any latent poetic creative genes, I am grateful that she challenged me to go outside of my comfort-zone.

Again, thank you, Iman, for opening my life up to receive all that you share on your blog.

About Me

  1. I am a 72-year-old African-American female, married for 54 years, three above-middle-age children, and five grandchildren ranging in age from 5-24.
  2. Five years ago, Hubby and I retired to Florida.  We left family and friends to escape the cold winters of Wisconsin.
  3. I ventured into blogging almost two years ago, to express my views, share my interests, and rant my concerns.
  4. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.
  5. For twenty years, I have managed two chronic pain conditions — Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.
  6. I enjoy nurturing my Healing Container Garden.
  7. I wake up every morning at 5:00 am to meditate and BE STILL; it strengthens me to accept all that enters my space during the day.

Nomination Rules

  1. Thank you link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. List the rules and display the award.

During this final season of my life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine my life. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR of starting this new venture as a blogger will be my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!
