The Blogger Recognition Award
I’ve been nominated three more times for the Blogger Recognition Award! The three bloggers who nominated me are Jess Ling from Jerserry, Catherine Mellen from Shatter the Silence/A Life Given to Me, and Elissa Renee from Welcome to my Thoughts! Thankyou so much for the nomination ladies! All three of these beautiful bloggers are brave women! Jess is adventurous and loves exploring! She uses her blog to share her experiences! “Life is too short, so enjoy while you can” seems be her blog’s theme! Catherine has a very rough childhood, and was pressured into remaining silent about it. Catherine decided to use her blog to share her story and remain silent no more. Through her blog, she lends some of her courage to her readers, welcoming them to use their voices as well. Elissa is not afraid to embrace who she is and speak her mind! Honesty is definitely her charm! Checkout these wonderful blogs, and get to know the beautiful ladies behind them!

Learning from my Experiences
I love to learn! That’s part of the reason I love reading, which I’ve mentioned before is one of my favorite hobbies! I’ve actually always enjoyed school for that very reason. I never enjoyed the stress and anxiety that comes along with tests and projects, but I’ve always enjoyed learning something new! Formal education isn’t the only way we learn of course. We also learn through our life experiences, and we never stop learning through this form of education.
Recently, my family got an opportunity to spend a little time together, and we decided to have an art night. More specifically, we decided to paint. I’m not very good at art, so I decided to sit this activity out. My family kept trying to encourage me to join in, especially my mother. She told me that it didn’t really matter that I wasn’t good at art. Just have some fun. Eventually, I finally gave in and decided to paint too, and there were already at set of art supplies waiting for me.
I actually had a lot of fun painting. I didn’t take away any new painting techniques from the experience. My painting came out as awful as I thought it would (my mom still decided to hang that monstrosity on the wall despite my objections)! What I did take away from that experience is a reminder that sometimes it’s not the activity we’re doing with loved ones that matters, it’s the time we’re spending with them to do the activity that does.
Every day brings new challenges, new experiences, and new opportunities to learn new lessons. I started my blog to share experiences like the one above. Even after formal education is over, you continue to learn through life lessons, and sometimes these lessons are the most valuable ones. Those are the lessons you keep with you throughout your life. To these who have been following my journey so far, thankyou! I appreciate you so much, and as I continue to learn and share my experiences, I hope you will continue to learn with me. Let’s keep growing together.
My two pieces of advice:
- Just enjoy the ride! Blog because you enjoy it! Enjoy sharing with your readers! Enjoy the connections and the friendships you make!
- It’s ok if your blogging journey isn’t perfect in the beginning. Give yourself time to get organized and learn what you need to know to improve your blog!
