Answers to Kranti’s Fantastic questions

  1. One dream you are chasing to fulfill?

My biggest dream in life that I will always be chasing is to write a book someday!!!

  1. Beach or Mountain?

I absolutely LOVE the beach

  1. What is the inspiration behind your blogging?

My inspiration behind blogging is that I really want to help others overcome any issues they may be facing with living with a Chronic Illness. Living life with a chronic illness is NOT easy and it helps to have others around you that truly understand! It is great to be able to reach out to another person that can relate and even offer advice on what we are dealing with at any moment. I know that 18 years ago when the doctor told me that I had Multiple Sclerosis, I was so young and completely shell-shocked. I wish there was blogs back then that I actually knew about because it would have been SO helpful to help me process the diagnosis. I want to be able to be that person others can rely on in dealing with issues like this.

  1. What is your biggest fear?

If I am being totally honest, I would say my biggest fear is the unknown of MS. It is not really knowing if I am going to lose the ability to do all the things I can do now and possibly be confined to a wheelchair. I am so stubborn and like to do everything for myself and my family, so losing the ability to walk would scare the hell out of me!

  1. One thing you admire in yourself?

I think what I actually admire most about myself is my determination. This can be a good thing and a bad thing, but I do admire my determination to never give up on my life!

  1. One thing you wish you can change in yourself regarding your behavior?

The thing I really wish I could change about myself is my inability to stop stressing and worrying about everyone and everything in life. I know it is not healthy, but after 36 years of it I can not seem to stop that quality about myself!

  1. What would you love to watch night sky or waves in the ocean?

This is a fantastic question! I would love to watch the ocean waves over the night sky! It is a beautiful image and site to see!

  1. Which Kind of movie would you prefer to watch horror, romantic or action?

Funny question with a funny answer! Considering I am a girly girl to the tee, I would actually prefer an action movie! Romantic movies tend to make me cry and horror movies honestly make me laugh because they are too much the same!

  1. Anything which makes you happy when you are sad and nervous?

My cats playing with each other always can make me smile. Those two babies have such an amusing love hate relationship!

  1. Your favorite month and color?

My favorite month is October because most of the time it is just the right temperature! My favorite color is purple, which is probably obvious to anyone that reads my posts!!

  1. What would you prefer street food or fine dining?

I am a pretty low-key kind of girl, so I would say street food is what I would prefer. Fine dining is a little too uptight for me!

10 Facts about myself

My amazing husband proposed to me in the most amazing way I have ever heard. It was the day after my 30th birthday and we went to see one of our favorite bands, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. My husband ended up having great conversation with the singer of the band, Ronnie Winter, and it was arranged for my husband to be able to propose ON STAGE with the band before what ended up being our first day, “Your Guardian Angel”.

I have the two sweetest and loving cats. It is always so wonderful to be greeted by them after a long day at work. They know absolutely no hate and evil which is so comforting.

I love music. I must have music in my ears all day at work to make it through the day!

My husband and I go snowboarding in the winter and I established last year that I was a “semi pro” in my own division. My own division only includes me but I thought I was doing amazing!

My happy place involves the ocean, sand and sun! I would be so happy at any beach!

I love to write and one of my goals in life is to be able to write and publish a book! I even already have a start to an outline for my book!

Back in my younger days, I was Miss VT Teen! This was my very young days, I was only 13 years old and wanted nothing more than to be a model.

I find butterflies to be absolutely magical. I have always believed they can be a sign of what is right in life or a sign from a loved one that was lost.

My #1 hero from my life was and always will be my beloved Grandfather.

My favorite color is purple and if it was up to me I would paint rooms in my house purple!!

Thank you again Toni for nominating me for such a sweet award! I really do appreciate you and your writing as it is truly amazing! 

I hope y’all enjoyed reading this post about my nomination for an award for my hard work and emotion with writing! I always value all of your support and comments! I hope y’all had a great weekend! Stay strong and positive!!

Love 2

Always, Alyssa
