Last week I was honoured to be nominated by Safar at Blisters, Bunions and Blarney http://safarfiertze.com/blog/ for the Sunshine Blogger Award. This award recognizes blogs that share positivity in the blogging community. I would like to encourage you to stop by her blog which covers many topics as you will surely find something that you can connect with and thank her for her consideration. I love looking on the bright side and look forward to sharing this award with other deserving blogs.

- Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions to answer
Answers to my questions:
1.Voltaire once said that a person should be judged by their questions rather than their answers – what question would you pose?
My question would be simple. It would be an honest “How are you going?
2. Mahatma Gandhi advised us to learn as if were were to live forever. What did you learn today?
This weekend through participating in Writing 101 I learnt how to add social media to a blog post. Initially this confused me however with perseverance I was able to do it and I am proud of myself.
3. Marilyn Manson suggests to be yourself and make a difference. What difference did you make today?
Working in mental health and focusing on positivity I believe I make a difference everyday.
4. Audrey Hepburn believes laughter cures a multitude of ills. What last made you laugh?
I agree with Audrey Hepburn and laugh everyday—the last time being an hour ago whilst watching comedy on the television over lunch. Humour can be found everywhere and is catchy.
5. Satchel Paige asks, “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”I am in my early fifties and most people if asked to guess would say I was in my late forties. A smile can take a few years off you and I smile a lot.
6. ‘Why?’ is the endless question of a child. What’s your why?
Unlike a child when I review why something happened I get an answer and make a plan to do it differently next time.
7. Oscar Wilde observed that we each are own devil and that we make this world our hell. What would you need to do to make this world your heaven?
I am constantly working on making my world better. There is no one thing for me that makes the difference it is a mixture of all my daily choices.
8. The UN declared 30 human rights. Was anything left out?
Not that I can think of.
9. John Stuart Mill argued that non-conformity and eccentricity is an essential service to society. Do you agree?
I think that having a unique personality, trusting your ability to follow dreams and not listening to the nay sayers is important as that is how society grows. Most successful people have broken the rules and gone against society to achieve their dream.
10. Woody Allen attributes 80% of success to just turning up. What might you have succeeded at if you had just turned up?
Giving things a go has taught me a lot over my life. I believe you have to be in it to win it so will give most things a go.
11. Think of a quote and ask yourself the question you would have liked me to ask
“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take” Unknown
This quote helps to motivate me. It reminds me to take risks reap the rewards so that as the years go by I don’t have any regrets. So far it is working.
