Motivation Monday – Awards

17 Jun

Seeing as last weeks goals (posted here) pretty much went out the window – apart from getting a photo with Mr&Mrs BeetleyPete 😀  I figured it was about time I got these Awards Posts done…..

I have quite a few awards to hand out today….bear with me. Its my own fault for not passing them on sooner really lol Anyhow I will comply with the ‘rules’ of each apart from the amount of nominations I need to make as that could take a while…but you never know I may get a second wind on this 😉
So…without further ado…

THANK YOU ALL FOR MY AWARDS 🙂 It’s only fair to send some back your way so see below to find out which ones you’ve got 😉 Also, seeing as I haven’t had a chance to catch up regularly I also think it’s only fair to pass these awards to those I HAVE been in touch with lately….congrats all xB

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Share the Love Award from  http://writingthebody.wordpress.com/2013/06/14/awarded-by-brigid-sharing-the-love-as-she-does/ Apparently it is similar to the Liebster Award which I have also been nominated for http://solothefirst.wordpress.com/2013/06/15/liebster-award-thanks/ and http://theclaymoreandsurcoat.com/2013/06/14/liebster-award/ so thank you all – I’m sorry though I’m going to do a mish mash of ‘rules’

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

 The Rules
1. Add the award logo to your blog.

2. List 11 Random Facts

3. Answer the questions
4. Nominate and let them know
5. Send them 11 new questions

My Facts: (There’s not much people on here don’t already know lol)
1- I wear glasses – I call them ‘me goggles’ and cant see much without them
2- I don’t like my forehead being on show…lol… I USED to cover it with a side fringe etc but more recently I’ve let it out a bit more often (saves me straightening my hair lol)
3- I am a dirty smoker
4- I have just eaten waaay too many sweets and feel a bit sick… but I might have one more anyway
5- I love watching TopGear
6- I missed the first half of the new season of ‘ONCE’ and am pissed about it
7 – I love driving…
8- ….I rarely have anywhere to drive though…or enough money to spend once there lol
9 – I am meant to be getting ready for work right now
10- My exs mum and I once stole my exs car to retrieve something the ex was too scared to get himself (wimp)
11-I cant think of anything to write for number 11

Questions:
1.  Name an enduring sorrow, something that has lasted for over a year
Does the finale of ‘LOST’ count? I was SO angry at the ending – especially as I had guessed from the first season…6 years that took…6 years!!!!!
2. Best song that captures an enduring sorrow
I suppose for me that would be 30 Seconds to Mars – The Kill…why? see this post
3.  Band with the best lyrics
Jeebus these questions are hard….I couldn’t possibly choose
4.  Band with the best music
Same as above
5. How do you relate to nature? I mean do you need it, trees, lakes, seas, mountains etc
Views and things… fine, I appreciate the prettiness but only when I can go back to the comfort of my home afterwards
6. Appliance you cannot do without.
Some kind of water boiling device…I need my instant coffee
7. Have you ever been bullied?  describe it (if you feel ok that is)
Yes, over 6 years by a group of 13 girls. Nothing physical thankfully (apart from the odd thing thrown at me now and then) but verbal, emotional bullying. It broke me down and took a long time to get over.
8.  Did you ever sleep with someone because that would be easier than telling that person or persons, no?  Describe that…if you feel ok
No…possibly…maybe. More because I wasn’t too fussed about whether we did or didn’t, I think I was more interested to find out whether we could go there and how it would be… so we did…and it didn’t really change anything either way so we never did again and remained friends.
9. is there a painter you like?  Link please…
I’m going modern on this one http://maugryph.com/2013/06/17/a-different-dragon-ipad-drawing/
10.  favourite youtube clip…link please
Oh god …don’t judge me lol…

11.  Most masochistic thing about you…..this is me after all …. describe if you feel ok.
This is me so I had to Google that lol  and I think I will leave this one blank

A few awards in one here but seeing as I have 2 of them and this is already a mammoth post I will kindly steal the 2 I don’t already have 😉 The hug award and the Dragon something award lol http://ethicalhedonism.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/its-certainly-raining-awards/

Hug Award

Hug Award

Dragons Loyalty

Dragons Loyalty

I’m guessing there were a lot of ‘rules’ for these so thankfully they have been merged down *phew* Saying that the questions aren’t exactly easy lol 😉

Questions:
What is the meaning of life?
42? Whatever you want it to mean
Happiness is all about?
looking back one day and crying from the good memories or from the better ones you’re making
Why did you start a blog?
To say the things I couldn’t say to my friends/family/husband, to find people whom understand, have been there, experienced life…to find people to communicate with – from a distance and not worry about isolating myself with the truth
What is more important in your life relationships or fame?
Relationships…. its lonely at the top – or so I’ve heard
One thing which you like the most about blogging?
I couldn’t choose one! Support, inspiration, encouragement, friendships; Having no worries about pouring my heart out, no pre judgements, everyone is as open as they want to be about what they want to be – yet you feel like you’ve known them forever.
What’s the best decision you ever made?
To take a chance on a few things in the past – I have faith in them turning out alright.
Do you believe that unconditional love really exists in any kind of relationship?
Yes, family for sure but I think even if the relationship failed there are still some relationships/people you could love forever, no matter what…It doesn’t mean you’re going to be walked all over though
Do you believe in Karma’s if yes then what are bad and good karma according to you?
I didn’t, but then I got kicked by a bunch of bad shit…so now I’m wondering what i did so bad lol….I’m hoping its true though because all the good I’ve been doing has to amount to something right?
Do you believe in rebirth or afterlife if yes then why?
I would LOVE to, I was raised catholic so I’m not supposed to believe in rebirth but I’m not a practicing catholic and that’s my favourite idea – as far as death goes anyway.
What is the best moment of your life?
I couldn’t say – there have been some great ones but they’ve always been tainted by SOMETHING – before, during, after…some thing that has taken away the ‘greatest’ part…because its not been pure, or perfect etc. My happy place is ‘the carrot’ (blogged here)that’s as pure as it gets

The Rose of Kindness Award http://petitemagique.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/150-followers-and-more-awards/

Rose Of Kindness

Rose Of Kindness

This amazing award is created by Tersia http://tersiaburger.com

‘Let’s all think about “kindness” and make it our goal to perform just one special act of kindness every day!  It has to be a special act of kindness that actually takes an effort. Vic was a kind and generous person.  Her legacy is one of kindness and generosity.  So I have come up with an award… The Rose of Kindness Award.  I would like to add that we need to remember that our existence here is fragile, and we never have as much time with people as we think we do. If there is someone or someone’s out there that you love, don’t neglect that and don’t put off engaging with them because death waits for no-one…  Be kind and gentle.  Cherish your relationships remember to be kind….  Pay it forward!’

Rules of the Rose of Kindness Award:
Add the  Rose of Kindness Award on your blog
Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog
Nominate 13 bloggers whose kindness you have experienced
Post why you are nominating each of your nominees
Let the  nominees know that you nominated them
Suggest one special act of kindness that the world may benefit from

        Here goes;
        1) Doing something positive for society, and being fondly remembered when you are gone.
        2) No regrets.
        3) To stay sane, after a massive life change.
        4) Relationships I suppose, as fame only lasts for 15 minutes, apparently…
        5) The company I keep, of course!
        6) To stick with a career (the Ambulance Service) after years of chopping and changing jobs.
        7) For a mother to her children, it does exist; and for a dog to its owner.
        8) No. Karma=Scmarma.
        9) No. Dead is dead. That’s it.
        10) 8th March 2012. The last day I ever had to go to work.

        Let me know when to collect my Dragon. Hope he gets on with Ollie!
        As ever, Pete. X
