I can't believe it's already my 100th post!
The Lovely and Kind Marinik from Marinik's Blog has bestowed upon me the "Love YA" award! Now, she set out some guidelines in which the award is to be passed on....and, since they are only guidelines I'm going to modify them for the sake of this, my 100th post!
As I've been cruising around the blogosphere today, I've noticed that a few of the other bloggers she bestowed the award upon are some of my favorite bloggers and those bloggers have bestowed the award on some more of my favorite bloggers, so, instead of just naming and awarding to people who've just rec'd this very same award, I've decided to tie receiving this award with gifting each person who leaves a comment on this, my 100th post a little trinket.
So, if you leave a comment on this post, please pop over and email me your snail mail address and I will send you a little something in the mail......I have many talents, so, be prepared for a fantabulous little bauble!
I am very touched that Marinik bestowed this award upon me, considering me one of her friends. She is an amazing woman and her love shines soooo brightly through her own blog, it's hard not to want to send the award right back to her. I have to thank her for showing me how to be brave, strong and heroic in the face of such a powerful life experience. Mari, 'back at you sister'!
I am a woman on a mission to begin the life I have taken for granted for too long. Many changes have come in the last five years and while I have weathered them, I have not seriously taken any action to make changes for the enrichment of my life. The stories of my journey will be posted here......stay tuned for daily status of finally living a life not lived.....
To really live.....quit waiting for tomorrow....what if tomorrow never comes....what if you wake up, get dressed and head off to that job you hate and you get hit by a bus on the way.....what will you regret NOT doing? Telling someone you're sorry for hurting them? Giving your kid the 'attaboy' he or she needs to get them to the next level in their growth? Telling your friends how much they mean to you? Being there for your spouse when they've had a really bad day? Or, maybe you keep saying you're going to finally become the person you were meant to be......and you missed your chance because you didn't believe that NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME!
Been There, Done THAT..........
