Sunshine blogger awards

I was nominated for the Sunshine blogger awards.
Thank you so much to Joan. She's nominated me, and she has a wonderful blog herself called: My best friend Adeline.
It's an honor to be nominated and here are the answers to her questions.

What 3 things (other than significant others, children or family) bring you joy?

1. My writing brings me so much joy. It's been quite the journey, and I've been very happy getting back into it. I've always done it since I was 9 years old, but have had some phases where I was not writing.
I can honestly say that it makes a huge difference to my personal happiness.
2. The knowledge that I can make a difference to the people that I serve when I do my work. I work for a group of people who have a vulnreable medical issue and the materials we offer can make them feel safe again.
3. My volunteerswork. It is so good to give back to society. This place is a one where you can just be who you are and do what you do. It allows for a great amount of freedom. Everyone there is different and more often than not have been through so much in their lives. We allow eachother to grow and learn and a lot of friendships bloom. It is the best place and I am so happy to be part of it!

What are your 3 best talents? (no modesty allowed!)

1. I have so much creativity. Sometimes I feel like I am a walking idea generator. I love being in the zone with my inspiration.
2. I'm a pretty good bus stop therapist. Somehow I attract strangers that tell me their whole life story. After we've talked, they always seem to be feeling better, but are rather confused why they told me. I always get: "But why am I telling you this? I don't know you..." I always shrug and answer: "Well, what made you?" They never seem to know why. I jokingly started calling it bus stop therapist, because it always seem to be happening somewhere at a random bus stop.
3. I'll have to go with cooking. More to be explained about this later.

Describe 3 times you have been kind to others in the last week.

I live by: do at least one kind act every day.
1. When it's quiet at work, and one of my eldery customers is obviously wanting to chat out of loneliness I take a few minutes to just talk. I could be the only person they talk to all day. Knowing that makes me sad. I am happy to contribute my enery to that.
2. I have encouraged somebody to share a story that was so personal to them. It was the first time he was sharing with a crowd and wanted to do it as good as possible. He did wonderful. I am so proud.
3.I have taken time to apologize to someone for being impatient with him and really hear what he had to say. I was honest and open. It felt good to make a connection where we did not connect as much before.

What are 3 things you do for fun?

1. I love coloring mandalas. It is so relaxing!
2. Well, writing of course!
3. Dancing around the house

What is your favorite color?  What do you associate it with?

No no, not one favourite color. But so many! How do you think I choose my blog name?
Many colors, I associate it with being open and full of wonder to the world and everything there is. We learn so many things every day.
I do seem to have preference for indigo, turquoise, saphire green and sky blue though.
If you had a large fortune in the bank, what would you do with your time?

I'd have so many projects going. I'll probably be working those out and seeing who I can work with.
No lazing around, just getting the best out of it. Helping where I can. Starting with kids, teens, young adults. Invest in projects I believe in. So many sharing to do!
I've always wondered how people can be so miserable and bored, they buy 7 cars. What in the fuck would you do with 7 cars? Take a different each day?

Describe your perfect weekend.

A little bit of writing, dancing, singing, meditation, share time with the boyfriend, netflix & relax and have some wonderful meals. At least one that is shared with friends.

When do you feel like you are at your best?

When I can allow my creativity to flow freely at all times, and I can put it into action. I have so much of that energy inside of me and it just needs to get out.

What are 3 things (other than family, health, etc.) that you are most grateful for?

I am so grateful that I have a place where I can be me without judgement.
I am so grateful that I get to share kindness with others daily
I am so grateful for the simple things in life that I feel we should enjoy.

What are you passionate about?

Cooking. I love how this is a journey of discovery, and I always find new things on it.
I learned flavour combinations, the little things that make your food go from good to topnotch.
The process of creating a meal is something of big magic to me.
I love it!

What are some of your favorite memories of all time?

It always seems to involve my travels alone. I love traveling and discovering another country with it's culture. Paris has my heart especially. The wandering that I did along the streets of Paris, sitting down with a book in a little bistro and getting a coffee, doing picknicks with locals and fellow travelers. It was the best summer of my life.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a bit more about me, and I'd like to nominate some other lovely bloggers to do this and answer my questions.
