The bold and beautiful – Madeline Scribes – nominated me for a One Lovely Blog Award – HERE – please check out the blogs of the other nominees.
Thank you very much! I’ve already thanked her before but why stop thanking someone if they’ve inspired you?
The rules of this award are:
1. Thank the person who nominated you. (as many times as you want, thank yous are money in the bank of encouragement)
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers.
4. Notify the nominees.
5. Put the logo of the award on your blog.
So. I do things my way or else I have no idea what I’m doing… my way doesn’t mean I know what I’m doing, I just enjoy myself more. As I get older I realise that being selfish is a good thing for me and for others. I’ve tried being selfless… others didn’t enjoy that and neither did I.
So I’m passing this award on my way – one blog at a time, choosing blogs which have inspired me.
I am nominating – Show Me Who You Really Are – for the One Lovely Blog Award. Why? Well… where do I begin? The beautiful soul who powers this blog is so incredibly energetic, unashamedly authentic, and a kick ass femme in so many ways that I’ve fallen madly in love with her blog (and her but… shhh… that might come across as a bit too intense).
This quote, which I love too, explains it better than I ever could…
She’s the sort of free soul who has had to fight for her soul to be free and knows what it’s like to be trapped in an unfree place. She is a very generous and kind free soul, and she shares her struggles for freedom and her lovely spiritedness freely in her posts, and it shines brilliantly through her blog, and energises the reader. She leads by example… and doesn’t want followers but playmates!
Okay… I’ll stop drooling now.
She writes about a variety of things, and does so openly and with courage. She’s also super crazy which is hilarious and fun. Since I’m super crazy too… it’s like an awesome play date when we interact and when I read her posts.
We Are Each A Blazing Light of Glory
If You Think Your Poop Don’t Stink, Then You Can GTFO
I’m really going to stop drooling now… and talk about myself – the 7 things bit.
Since she occasionally uses astrology and loves it as much as I do as a tool of self discovery, my 7 things are going to be astro-themed.
1 – I’m a Capricorn Sun…
2 – With Virgo Rising…
3 – With Mercury in Aquarius…
4 – With Venus in Pisces and Mars in Scorpio…
5 – With Uranus and Pluto in the 1st house…
6 – Neptune in the 3rd house…
7 – With Chiron in the 7th house…
All the people whose quotes and images I used to go with my 7 astro things about me have the same astrological placements.
That’s all folks!
Please check out – Show Me Who You Really Are – and enjoy the energising and inspiring ride (seatbelts not included)!
Brilliant!!! Love this! Keep writing and I will keep reading ❤
Thank you 😀 Truly!
Will Ferrel is funny, isn’t he? Have you ever seen – The Landlord – video he made? It’s very NSFW, no children were harmed (but were scary to adults) while the video was made and the outtakes and story of how the video was made are funny too. He’s dangerously funny (as in peeing oneself laughing) 😉
He’s a hoot! No, I haven’t seen that video, but of course it’s now on my “Things to do” 🙂
The first thing I always think of when he comes up in conversation is Old School, were he’s streaking down the street thinking his buddies are behind him…then gets in the car with his wife and wants to go in the drive-thru, naked. 😀
By the way, visited your friend’s blog and I’m totally starstruck 🙂
She has great energy and is very forthright which is so refreshing and inspiring. Thank you 😀
Congratulations… and another engaging post… off to read Show Me Who you really Are….
Thank you very much 😀 Hope you enjoy her blog as much as I do!
😀 Love her blog!
Reblogged this on Show Me Who You Really Are and commented:
Holy hell I cannot even begin to tell you what this means to me. But I’m going to try anyways. First, I want to thank An Upturned Soul (btw, that’s not her real name ; ) for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Here’s her site https://anupturnedsoul.wordpress.com/ <— do yourself a favor and go there. One of two big reasons this means so much to me, is because I respect the hell out of this woman. If she just passed these things out like candy, it might not have meant as much to me. And if I don't respect someone, their recognition doesn't mean a whole lot to me.
While I may (or not) seem to be over-reacting to something that seems relatively simple . . . I'm not. Not for me anyways. In fact, for me, I'm under-responding.
See this is actually a momentous moment for me in my life. This was posted early yesterday morning (my time in Seattle, USA) . . . and I've just now got my head back on straight enough so that I'm capable of reblogging this.
I've been recognized before in my life. For business things. For playing flute well technically. As in, not because of my own creativity, but because I was good at playing well like a robot. (Not quite that severe . . . but point being, it wasn't because I was some musical creative genius.)
My blog. My writing. That's something that's coming straight from my heart. That is something of myself that I am putting out there for others to do what they wish with it. In astrology, that's 5th house, Leo, Sun. And see . . . I have Saturn, restrictor/task master (stick in the mud) in Leo in the 5th. It's the house and sign of kids, creativity, heart. When you do something from your heart, it is like your kid. It's an offering from your heart. And for that . . . doing something from my heart and receiving recognition at this level . . . that I haven't had happen before.
I don't do it for recognition. I do it because I need it . . . because something in me has to. But people's responses still affect me strongly. That's my heart hanging out there flapping out in the breeze for crying out loud! How would people's responses NOT affect me? 😀
So for me personally, having Saturn in that place . . . and having put a lot of work into overcoming my fears in order to share my heart despite the terror it invokes in me . . . and then to get recognition like this . . . THAT is why this is such a huge fucking deal to me. It's hitting and soothing all kinds of fears, hurts, and damage done over the years of my life. So yeah, I'm having quite a huge response over this. I did something that scared the living shit out of me, with no expectations of ever having any outside validation . . . so when it happened, it absolutely knocked my socks off. You should see the retarded stuff I was responding with in the comments shortly after she let me know about the nomination. I wasn't making ANY sense. 😀
An Upturned Soul . . . I don't know if you'll ever know or understand what you've done for me just in the short time we've been in touch. Just by openly sharing things with me, you have showed and reminded me about more of myself in this short time . . . than I've been shown for the sum of my life. I can't even keep up with sharing back to you what the things you've said have been showing me because it's so much. Like when you said I wasn't looking for followers, I was looking for playmates. Oh! Yes! That's what I was trying to say . . . I didn't realize that's what I had been trying to say until I read that from you.
Or in a recent comment you said that I didn't forget what it's like to be a kid . . . girrrrl . . . you'll be hearing more about that in a post later. I totally, fucking, forget about that part of me. I forgot the kid part of me. I am a giant.ass.kid. And I'm trying to behave how I see other adults behave . . . and that's not me. That's never going to be me. No wonder I feel so goddamned closed tight in a box . . . I'm trying to play grown up the way other people play grown up and it doesn't work for me. But see? I couldn't see these things about me. It's these simple, seemingly obvious things about me that I haven't had others say to me . . . and so I couldn't see them. One day I'll be able to describe what I mean by that better. Point is . . . you just being you, and not trying to help me, and just being real . . . is exactly what I was needing. All it took was a couple of simple nudges for me to go OHHHHHHHH! Now I remember who I fucking am.
It's a mix of timing from the universe, and it just taking this long to run into someone else who has also put in enough hard work to uncover enough of themselves that they could see outside of their hurt too. You may not know how rare you are, but it took me over 36 years to run into one of you . . . so, it's pretty uncommon. Even though I'm sure a lot of it had to do with the circles I was hanging out in. So meeting you also marks a point in my life where I can see that I'm moving out of my old patterns and cycles and into a new life.
Thanks. For all of that, and more. Really, I'm just saying thanks for being you. That's made all the difference for me.
WOW! Thank you very much 😀
Your self awareness is a great talent and it’s something I admire. You have a scintillating sense of humour and wonderful energy. You inspire me and so I let you know. What you do with the information is up to you. You’ve just been Uranus’d in the 1st 😀
So how I have affected you, that’s how you’ll increasingly affect others as transiting Uranus travels through your 1st and interacts with your natal chart placements. Your Saturn is getting zapped in a liberating way by Uranus.
All relationships flow both ways… I’m very happy to have met you too 😀
