I would like to thank Cindy, from https://validatingchronicpain.com for nominating me for this really wonderful award! Cindy suffers from chronic pain and the terrible issue of anxiety, but she is very resilient and keeps fighting through all the struggles those two issues impose on her daily life. Cindy shares freely about what she battles and how she continues on with her life the best way she can. Even while she struggles with her own issues, she never stops being compassionate towards what other bloggers are dealing with in life. Cindy leaves great and thoughtful comments that show how big her heart is and I definitely value her friendship! I am so sorry it took me so long to share my answers and fully accept this wonderful award Cindy. I appreciate you being patient with me taking about a month to complete this!!

Three things about me you might already know, but here goes anyway:
- If I could I would move heaven and hell for those I can about!
- I am quite often stubborn almost to a fault
- I have dreams to escape the place I live in and travel the world so I can experience as much as possible in this short life I was given.
Answers to Cindy’s wonderful questions
1. What’s the most surprising self-realization you’ve had?
No matter how hard I try, I do not have the ability to fix everyone else’s issues they are dealing with. This was a very hard realization for me because I am the type of person that wants to make life easier for everyone!
2. How do you hope you will change as a person in the future?
It is my hope that I will learn to live a little more and stress a lot less in my future
3. What is the most annoying question that people ask you (if you have a chronic illness/pain, what is the most annoying question that people ask you about your illness/pain)?
Honestly this is a very easy question for me to answer because the question I am asked way too often is, “Won’t your illness go away if you exercise or eat differently?” No matter how many times I answer this same question, it never gets any less annoying!
4. What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of and why?
I will never in my life understand why so many people are so obsessed with the playing violent video games. People tend to allow video games to control their lives and get so stuck in their house playing video games, when I feel like there is way more to life than gaming! I guess we all have our outlet to difficult times, but some games people are obsessed with are pretty violent. I think if these individuals are trying to escape the struggles of real life, violent games would be the last way to get away from life because the world we live in is already full of violence!
5. What’s the best thing that happened to you last week?
The best thing that happened to me last week was I found out that over 1,000 people are following my blog! It is an amazing feeling to know that there are so many already amazing people that enjoy reading what I write about. It has always been my goal to help encourage and inspire others that might be struggling with their lives and to see that so many really do care what I have to say is a fabulous achievement!
I know that according to the rules of this award, I am supposed to nominate 10-20 fellow bloggers for this award, but I am going to break the rules just a little! Some rules are meant to be broken, right!? So instead of trying to choose only 10-20 amazing and well-deserving bloggers, I am going to leave this open for everyone to join in this award! I know we all live very busy lives and I do not want to add any stress to anyone’s life by nominating them for this award. I do believe everyone that follows my site deserves to be nominated because y’all are absolutely fantastic! Any of you that want to participate, please do so by answering the same questions I did! I will look forward to reading anyone that wants to join this award answers! I hope that whoever wants to play along has fun with this!
I hope y’all have had a wonderful weekend and you are feeling great! Enjoy the rest of your weekend by relaxing this afternoon and getting yourself ready for another week! I truly hope you have a great start to the next half of 2018 and the remainder of your year is absolutely fabulous! Thank you again Cindy for thinking of me for this award nomination!
I do appreciate y’all visiting my site and you already know I always encourage your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can!
