Can you imagine that we are now closer to NYE 2020 than NYE 2019? Are you already thinking about your new resolutions? As a rebel, I will probably skip them altogether. Like I normally do.
But before we get into the Holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, etc.), we still have a couple of months to breathe and reflect on the year so far, just in case we still wanted to complete at least some of our resolutions. Just yesterday I heard someone say that someone told them (lol) about their list for Black Friday shopping. Why do most people either live in the future or in the past? It seems to flabbergast the people around me that I choose to live mostly in the now. They seem to think that my life will end if I do not change my ways. I am either doing something very wrong (and my life will end prematurely; figuratively or literally), or something very right (and people will model their lives on mine in the future).
Enough of the ramblings.
How have you been? Have you been enjoying the summer?
I surely have. Aside from the sun outside, I have also received a lot of sunshine here, on this online platform. It might sound corny, but my interactions with you really do brighten my days. Moreover, I have been nominated for a few “Sunshine Blogger Award”, which I can only hope means that I bring some sun rays to your blog. Let us keep up the mutual work so it is always nice and golden in your part of the blogosphere.
Today, I thank those who nominated me AGAIN as well as those who did it for the first time. The first group must be insane. Stockholm syndrome, maybe? And the second one surely has no idea what they are getting yourself into.
Either way – THANK YOU!
Be sure to stay with me until the end for the crowning of this month’s “Brain Stormer” Award winner.
Side note: I nominate only a handful of people for a reason. It is not because I do not respect or like others. I do. It is just hard to choose from so many talented people. That aside, I also like nominating just one or two people because I want to use these Award posts as a networking event. The probability of you clicking on one or two names and checking their blogs out is much higher than if I was to nominate 10+ people for every single award. So please, go and mingle. See if you can find something for yourself. I am always tickled when I see people meet in my comment section and then hit it off on their respective blogs.
P.S. This totally turned into a LENGTHY post so feel free to read one page at a time, or at whatever pace that is comfortable for you. This just goes to show how thought-provoking this month’s questions were.
(No matter what I do, WP seems to blend the answers with the questions. My apologies for that. I think it is forcing me to start using the new editor.)
The awards I received in the month of July are:
