Roll Out the Red Carpet

I feel like a celebrity as I have been nominated by Lisa May Coaching for two more awards! I’m blushing profusely. What an honor and a ton of fun! First, let me say a big Thank You to Lisa. I want to let you all know that I was only nominated in the case Lisa was first nominated and her blog is well deserving of the awards. Lisa is a very positive, inspiring blogger!

Instructions for the Lighthouse Award:

1. Display the award certificate on the blog
2. Write a post and link back to the blogger that nominated you.
3. Inform your nominees of their award nominations.
4. Share three ways that you like to help other people

Three ways I like to help people:

  1. Listening. Really listening and letting them know that I’m listening. I think people want to be heard (I know I do.)
  2. Empathizing. One thing I think helps most people is for them to know someone understands.
  3. Encouraging. Even the littlest word or smile can be very uplifting to me, so I try to do that for others.

For some lighter topics (photography, poetry) my nominations are:
