Thank you so much, Martina and Lori, for bestowing me with the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. My blogging experience has already exceeded my expectations. I frankly didn’t anticipate the kindness and encouragement that the blogging community has shown me.
I started blogging because I had so many thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and experiences that I wanted to share with others. Or at the very least, I wanted to get them out of my system. Blogging has become a helpful tool in my recovery from BED. Writing has always been therapeutic for me, and blogging allows me to reflect on my life, peel off my social mask, and expose myself in a vulnerable and honest light. It has also reminded me how much I enjoy writing. I write everyday – emails, lists, essays, notes, assignments – but it’s not often that I get to write from the heart.
I have also met some fantastic bloggers along the way. I nominated a few in my Liebster Award post, but since then, there have been some new additions to my list of favourites. I think Martina and Lori are just the sweetest ladies around, and I also love:
–Marnie, for her companionship
–Respect Thy #selfie Project, for her compassion
–Fashion, Food, and Flirts, for her fun approach to life
–Food Like Cake, for brightening up my day with her posts
–a2eternity, for her wry humour
To my nominees above: if you’d like to accept the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, please post the picture of the award on your blog and nominate other bloggers who you love having around. (There are more official “rules” than this, but I’m not much of a rule person in the summer. Sun brings out the laziness in me.)
Here’s to more triumphs, more setbacks, more baking, and more writing from the heart. These are the treasures in my life.
