The Honor Challenge

Please check out this amazing challenge posted by Abbie!

Of A Life Less Ordinary

You Are Special print (charcoal)
What if we reached out and honored people regularly.

Treating people with Importance, Respect, and Kindness should not be reserved for “Special” days…

What if every day we treated people like it was their birthday.
Called them up, sent a nice message, acknowledged them, took them to coffee or lunch, gave a smile and/or a compliment…

How would it be if our words and actions reflected that we cared about whether or not they felt important and valued!

Challenge: Pick a person, and for an entire week really treat them special, as if it was genuinely their birthday. Do this full-heartedly, but don’t mention the challenge to them or others. The Honor Challenge
Note: This is not necessarily about material gifts but a frame of mind, words, and actions (outreach.)4447

I wonder how relationships and/or self-esteem will be affected…

Please spread this challenge and Share your experiences here with me! The Honor Challenge

A Very Kind Gesture

Curleymania has created The Getting Through Anxiety Blog Award! I think it is a very kind gesture to name an award after me. I’m going to nominate everybody that can be found under the “Blogs I Follow” widget and on the “Additional Blogs I Enjoy” page. The following quote is a description of the award and because all of the blogs I follow and enjoy fit the description, I would like to give you all this award. Every one who has and continues to support me in my fight to be free from what holds me back means so much to me. Thank you!

 Those nominated I observed have excelled in writing in their blogs.  Also the Award stands for inspiration. She inspired me to do some great things in creating awards for people. The award also stands for bloggers who show kindness towards others. I find ‘GettingThroughAnxiety’ to be very kind. Lastly the award stands for people who are just simply nice people and nice to everyone in the blog community.–Curleymania

Here are the questions asked by Dan. All who visit my blog are more than welcome to answer:

1) What is your favorite thing to write about?

Fiction. I want to be a fiction writer one day. However, through writing on here and for the site, I have learned that I am talented in writing about mental health issues as well as helping others, which I enjoy.

2) What do you think has been your best piece of writing?

Nothing in particular, though I have some works on that I think are pretty good. I’ve also written some poetry and a few stories I’m proud of.

3) What is your best memory from childhood?

Again none in particular. Though I did enjoy going to my first concert (Jewel), spending time with my Grandma, and just other times as well.

4) What is something you would like to write about but you haven’t already?

I’m working on a story right now and would love to get it published. Don’t want to say too much about what it’s about though.

5) What is your favorite book?

Dead Lines by Greg Bear. Also a lot of books by James Patterson and Harlan Coben.

6) What is your least favorite book?

Ha! This is a funny question! I’d probably have to go with a lot of classics and books I’ve read when I was in school. I’m sorry, but some where just horrible!

7) Who has inspired you most in your life?

My Grandma.
