And the Liebster Blog Award goes to
I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Between the Sea and the Sky , first of all I would like to thank Anna for nominating me ! It is a great honour for me , thank you soooo much . You really surprised me , I was not expecting that at all . A truly lovely surprise thoug

Okay , these are my answers to Anna’s questions :
1.) What made you start your blog ?
Almost 3 years ago I became ill and had to give up my business. When your health does not allow you to keep living an active social – and business life , you NEED to find something to keep yourself motivated . To start blogging was the best decision I have made in the last year , it has given me so much self-esteem back . Part from all the amazing things you still learn , my brain food …and I’m hungry !
2.) What are you most proud of ?
Of myself !
3.) If you could go anywhere in the world , where would you go ?
That’s not easy as I am actually very happy where I am . I have travelled and seen a lot , I have not got that desire actually . Yes , there is one place I haven’t been and always wanted to go …and most certainly will go . Capri … the blue grot … not very exotic , I know .
4.) Who is your inspiration ?
Hm , there is no particular ‘who’ . I get inspired by much more than by certain people . I find Malala Yousafzai very inspiring , I find women like Waris Dirie very inspiring , but I find a lovely morning , a colourful butterfly , a kind act of friendship , life …. you can get inspired by so much . You only need to be open for inspiration !
5.) Do you prefer summer or winter ?
Easy … summer !
6.) If you could change one thing in your life , what would it be ?
There is not much I would want to change … I would want to feel well and painless , to be able to still do all things I could do a few years ago , but that’s not up to me … that’s nothing we could change .
7.) What is your first memory ?
I find that a very difficult question . My first memory …. think , I can’t remember . But when I think of early memories , pink coloured ice lollies jump on mind …hhmmmm , how I loved them .
8.) What is your biggest regret ?
Oh no , who’s going to believe me ?! Nothing I want to change and actually really nothing I regret , I think that’s just my state of mind … embrace life the way it is . I don’t have all these negative thoughts of rags and quarrels ….
9.) Do you have a bucket list …. what are your top 3 ?
No , I don’t . Another aspect of embracing life day by day . There are so many sayings , maybe sounding very trivial and meaningless , but yet so true . Enjoy each day , too many plans we make never come true , instead of longing and waiting for …. live NOW and make the Best of every day !
10.) What’s the craziest thing you’ve done ?
I couldn’t tell . I have done so many crazy things in my life , and still do . I hate being boring , I hate being surrounded by boring people and I hate being bored …. a bit of crazy goes even before breakfast !
…ooops only 10 questions from Anna ….
I would like to say a few words about my way of choosing my favourites as I really did this with best care and attention . I have chosen the following 11 nominees by Content , Style , Biography and the notable Effort . I have seen many websites strewn with solely ads and pop ups coming from all across the screen . Don’t get me wrong , there is nothing wrong with ‘monetizing’ , but if a website is nothing but an advertising pillar , that is not my understanding of ‘blogging’ ( my very own opinion of course ! ) This just as a short explanation , for not choosing a few . I would have loved to nominate male and female bloggers equal , but that was my hardest challenge . Not many gentlemen among the writing guild !
