I’ve been nominated by Dan over at curleymania.wordpress.com for the award he made which was inspired by Sandy’s blog, Sandycademy. I think it’s great for Dan to create an award inspired by Sandy. She is such a nice person and has been so supportive and kind to me, and I’m guessing so many other bloggers as well. So everyone knows, the award is for people who have set aside time to help others through sharing their stories in hopes to show others that they are not alone. Thank you Sandy for being so supportive and thank you Dan for the nomination! I would like to nominate the following individuals for this award:

*I can’t possibly name all of the people that have taken time out of their lives to share their stories with others and help them understand that they are not alone in their struggles. The people and blogs are mentioned are just the main blogs I have nominated. I also need to nominate every other blog that I follow and enjoy. So many of you have shared your stories and support and I am more than grateful! Thank you so much.
**Also please note that I never really select a winner. The people that I nominate are the winners. I know everyone does this differently, I just wanted to clarify.
Now for the answers to the questions asked by Dan!
1) What story have you shared on your blog that you feel was the most inspirational!
This is a difficult question to answer. I think I’d have to say the most inspirational are the posts I write about determination and the fact that we all have the strength to overcome our anxiety. I think it’s something we all have to realize. I also think sharing my progress is good because it reminds myself as well as others (I hope) that success is possible if you try your hardest consistently.
2) What blog post have you found on here to be the most inspirational to you?
I feel horrible saying this, but I’m not sure. I’m new to your blog so I can’t really pick one in particular. However, I do think you making the blog was inspirational.
3) What is your favorite blog post you ever posted?
4) What is the nicest thing you did for someone?
Honestly, I think it might be sharing my experiences with others and letting them know they’re not alone. I think that’s really important. However, I just think any gesture of kindness is important.
5) What gives you hope and happiness when you feel down?
When others show their support and kindness. Also, when I see that I’m not the only one who struggles.
6) What is your favorite song?
I have a lot of them. Lyrically, my favorite song is The New Wild West by Jewel. I also love her song, Down So Long.
7) What is your favorite movie?
Back to the Future
8) What is your favorite coping strategy?
9) What do you like most about yourself?
My honesty and kindness
10) Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hopefully writing. I’m not sure how I’ll be writing or where for, but hopefully I’ll be writing.
11) What is your favorite thing to do in summer?
12) Who is the most important person in your life?
My family, especially my parents. I think my dad is the most supportive.
13) Who makes you happy most in life?
My dad. He’s so understanding and kind. He’s always there for me. However, my family in general makes me happy as do my friends!
I’d like my nominees to answer the same questions if they’d like! Thank you!
