Inspiration… Where do you get yours?

6 Jan

Thanks to Darling for bestowing a new award on me today: The Inspiration Award.

As with any good award, there are some informal rules and of course the promise and premise that I will tag an additional seven readers.

It is an award for inspiring, for making us stop and look and feel inspired. 

 So here are the Rules as Darling gave them to me,  followed by the Winners and the “whys” for their winning. 

BTW, Winners, this tags you to, in turn, get out there and stamp your Inspiration approval on others.   

 1. Please put the logo of the award (above) on your blog if you can make it work with your format.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate  7 or more blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

I hereby bestow this award to the following:

Byron: Read his blog for a few days. You’ll be addicted. You’ll be refreshed. You may just find your point of view shifting and changing as you read his blog. And then you’ll find yourself reading his articles online (yes, he writes for “real,” too). And if you are like me, you’ll most definitely find yourself wanting to be real life friends with him.

Liz, of Will There Be Cake?: Proof that you can have a career, a house, a husband, a dog and still be an independent woman. Her fresh, fun and humorously sarcastic outlook on life and the everday are really amusing and remind me that yes, we women can have it all!

Nova, of Coffee du Jour: Proof positive that life doesn’t always go our way, but you can’t give up. And Nova’s not throwing in the towel yet. Her blog is honest, eye-opening, sobering and above all, real. Check it out.

Darling: Give it back to Darling because she, after all, is the one who inspired me to write and to start a blog. She’s the best… friend, mother, creator and much more.

Mel, of Mel Does Grad School: Mel doesn’t get to post as much as she used to, but when she does, it’s bittersweet, funny, enlightening and intelligent.

Scarlett of Scarlett Off Course: I guess it’s because she and I clicked as internet friends, but man, I love reading her blog! I relate to many of her posts; learning to love and be loved, work troubles/successes, and the ever-changing pace of life.

BrookeM of Skrinerking Hearts: For her writing style. For the fact that if I need inspiration for a blog, BrookeM has inevitably posted some sort of new meme or idea of posting that I can borrow (and she doesn’t mind in the least bit!). Not to mention she posts adorable pictures of guys with great Heads of Hair each week, shares a bit too much with us on Thursday and doesn’t make excuses for anything she says on her blog. (Nor should she.)
