Inspiring Blogger Award

In Awards on November 15, 2012 at 7:37 am

The leaves were changing colors to various hues of red, orange, and yellow. The air was crisp, and the month was October. It was exactly three years ago that I called the police, packed one single bag for my infant child and I, and escaped the clutches of my ex-husband. Ironically I left during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and strangely I began writing this blog during the month of October. For me this is a form of therapy that helps me share, reflect, and try to put things behind me with the love and support of those around me (including my fabulous blogger friends!!) I also share my personal stories in hopes to educate others on domestic violence, and provide support for those who have survived the wreckage of an abusive relationship. I never imagined that a short month or two later I would be nominated for an Inspiring Blogger Award.

I would like to give a big thank you to Jo and Aaron at http://overtheedgeofthewild.wordpress.com/ Their blog is titled Over The Edge Of The wild, and each post unfolds a chapter of Jo and Aaron’s adventures around the world. I am currently living vicariously through this couple, and I am enjoying every twist and turn they take me on. Thanks again… this nomination means the world to me, and my efforts to fight domestic violence!!

The way the award works is that I now have to provide seven random facts about myself, and then nominate seven other blogs for the award. This first part is all about ME!

1) My fondest childhood memories took place at the wooden park, and catching tadpoles at the nearby creek.
2) I absolutely LOVE Shel Silverstein, and to this day I can still recite his poem Sick.
3) I LOVE animals so much that I decided to keep a mouse in my junior high school locker when my mum said “NO!”
4) Upon first meeting me I may come across as a very shy individual, but out on the dance floor I will prove otherwise.
5) I am a hopeless romantic that still treasures love letters from my high school sweetheart.
6) I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane, and I would do it again!
7) I HOPE that you will click “Like” and Reblog to help educate others about domestic violence, spread awareness, and provide support!

In no particular order my nominations go to:

1) http://abuseandaddictions.wordpress.com/
2) http://notsosexinthecity.wordpress.com/
3) http://mountaincowardadventures.wordpress.com/
4) http://imnotdepressed.wordpress.com/
5) http://fitbellies.com.au/
6) http://jayjaysfavorites.wordpress.com/
7) http://purposefullyscarred.wordpress.com/

I included one blog for good luck! It appears that Lift Up Your Voice Speak Out is in the beginning phases of production. I wanted to offer my support and personal stories as HOPE for a brighter tomorrow.
