This morning I was greeted with a wonderful surprise. I saw that I was nominated for the sunshine blogger award by Kimberly Mulley. Thank you so Kimberly. I really appreciate it. You can find her blog here.

This is the first time I’ve been nominated as a sunshine blogger award, so I hope I’m doing this right. Here are the rules.

  1. Thank the blogger and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Put the award logo up.
  3. Answer questions that are given.
  4. Nominate other bloggers.

These are the questions that I was asked. Enjoy.

Upload a picture of yourself (One that you consider is your most favorite). I like this photo because it represents family which is a top priority for me. It’s also a reminder to enjoy life and to be able to laugh at yourself.

What do you think about my blog (Choose Transformation)? 

I recently found Kimberly’s blog which is called “Choose Transformation” and have looked forward to reading her future posts and watching her videos. You can find her blog here.

I love that she is a mental health nurse and the fact that she is sharing her personal journey trying to live a less anxious and mindful life. I think that this is what we all desire and are seeking. Watching her videos, it is clear that she is authentic.

Which song best represents how you’re feeling right now?

“Feel Invincible” by Skillet.

What makes your blog different from others?

I think everyone has an “IT.” Everyone has a story. Everyone has something that they have had to overcome or conquer. I share a lot of my “IT” with respect to me having an enlarged heart, an defibrillator, and still being able to stay active. Something that makes my blog a little bit different is I include a Biblical perspective as I discuss having an “I CAN DO” mindset.

Which blog is currently your favorite? 

Man this is a tough one. At the moment I would say Kimberly’s (Choose Transformation). Here’s why. Last year I had a panic attack. I’ve never had one before. It was a wake up call for me and has really forced me to consider much about myself and my life. What Kimberly is sharing has resonated with me with certain things that are currently going on in my life.

Which has been the best day of your life so far?

These are excellent questions. First, would be when I was saved. Second, would be getting married. Third, would be seeing my son born. All life changing events.

Which animal would you say you are most alike and why?

I would say a lion. Partly because I have one on my screen saver and on a plaque in my office. They are strong. I like to view myself as being strong in a variety of ways.

If you could give me one piece of advice for living with anxiety and depression what would it be?

This is a great question. I’m not an expert and I don’t know and would never say, “I know what you’re going through” because I don’t. First, know that you’re not alone. Second, know that you are loved and very special in the eyes of God.

Thank you again Kimberly for your nomination. This really means a lot to me.

Okay here are the questions for those that I have nominated.

  1. Please post a favorite picture of yourself.
  2. What other passions do you have outside of blogging?
  3. What do you think about my blog?
  4. If you could be one superhero, who would it be and why?
  5. What is one piece of advice you would give me to improve in blogging?
  6. What books have you read multiple times and why?
  7. How do you sharpen your saw? By that, I mean how to do you stay fresh and sharp when it comes to your blog and life in general?

I look forward to reading your responses. Here are my nominations.
