As I walk down the virtual red carpet in my lovely designer gown, I feel esteemed at the fact that I’ve even made it this far. I was surprised actually, to receive a nomination from a fellow blogger who had been nominated for two of these awards, http://www.mysticalwriterblog.com. I met mystical writer through Blogging 101 University. Her blog is about crystals, mandalas and other mystical things that intrique and stimulate our senses. Things I enjoy as well. My mouth dropped open, and my eyes went wide as I thought about the first person I wanted to share this experience with and how honored I felt to be nominated.
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers, who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word and means: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. Blogging is about sharing your experiences through written word, online to a community of people who like to encourage each other. It’s about creating a community of people who love to write.
This friend who encouraged me to start writing, other than my Mother who always said I should write a book. Is a man who I met, while following his cousins documentary. He is a businessman with great advice, big shoulders and friendly manner. I have always wanted to write in the past, but never followed through with my desire. I am a person who loves to learn everything, and if I was a multimillionaire I would quit my job and do just that, study! I have published authors in my family, and perhaps it is in our genes. One of my cousins even won the Order of Canada for his published works.
When I thank my friend, he always says it was me and that’s where the words come from. Well we all need encouragement to continue and http://www.pal-fitness.wordpress.com was the person behind mystical writer blog, receiving a nomination. Encouragement is what help people reach higher and think outside the box. Well this one has been a great start for me in a new avenue.

I started my blog two years ago, while working through a lot of personal issues. Things I guess were bottled up and had no outlet. Being a journal writer, I never dreamed I would be writing on line and helping people. I have been through a lot these past 22 years, things that have brought many lessons, heartaches, joys and growth. I am a Registered Professional Counsellor, whose desire is to teach others to love themselves first. I cultivate meaningful relationships, and have accepted that I am a compassionate warrior woman. My website is http://www.lovefromtheinside.wordpress.com
