Gratitude Rocks could be a post about the benefits of positive thinking and maybe it also is, but actually it is to thank a blogger friend for an award she gave to me!
This month I got a sweet award, The Blogger Recognition Award, from the lovely BeautyMommies blog – please, check it out, really sweet! There are rules to accept it – like thanking and linking the blogger who gave it – done! I feel so honored by the award, that someone thinks I deserve it, many thanks! Hence the title now, gratitude rocks Write a post about the award, doing it now Give 2 pieces of blogging advice – OK, but next week Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to – I feel shy doing that, so I’m passing it to all my blogger friends now! Also, comment on each blog to let them know you have nominated them. And finally, give a brief story of how you started your blog – I’ve talked about it before or so I think. But it’s really a brief story and I’ll repeat it now
How (and/or why) I started blogging – For me it was very simple, nothing to do with “I wanted to share thoughts, I was thinking about life, I had a passion for fashion”, no, nothing like that. I was always very curious about the latest things in areas like technology and on December 25, 2005 – when blogs were kind of a new thing – I thought “I want to know how it works”. So I created my blog. On the next days I posted some simple things, just to know how it worked. And the blog grew a bit, I started exchanging thoughts with other bloggers, I loved this interaction and that is the whole story
Now, the question goes for all my blogger friends! How and/or why did you start your blog?
But Gratitude Rocks could also be this:
I have some of these rocks, that I myself made out of clay and painted the words – like Charity, Kindness, Peace, Gratitude, Joy, Happiness, Trust, Hope, Health, Believe, Harmony, Friends, Faith, Family, Blessings, Courage, Positive Thoughts… now I saw some stones with this sentence, that is great: “Thoughts become things”. I think more like “thoughts attract what you imagine. Good and/or bad things.” I like the rocks to remember that chooosing to think in a positive way does wonders!
This is not my recipe, but from a former foreign student of mine, when I used to teach English, who passed it to me. Sooo simple! Crush 240 g of meringues, add two tbsp. of cocoa powder and 2 cups of double cream. Mix the 3 ingredients and place the mixture in the freezer. I swear, that recipe is the best chocolate mousse I ever had! And wherever I prepare it, people say “ooohhh, divine!” As I was a year and 4 months without eating chocolate, I deserved that mousse again this month!
Last week was a difficult one, due to a person planting disharmony. So here is the answer to that
Wishing you a beautiful week with many smiles! Thanks for the sweet comments!
