My third Blog Award – The Sunshine Award

I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Award by a lovely blogger!

The Sunshine Award

The rules of this Blog Award are: Include the Award’s logo in a post or on your blog
. Answer 10 questions about yourself. 
Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers. 
Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated. 
Share the love and link the person who nominated you!

So here are my question answers:

  1. What are your favorite things to do? No secret here…  Writing, cooking, meditating and doing spiritual/psychic work, uplifting people, hanging out on my farm, swimming in the ocean, travelling. Oh, that’s rather a lot, isn’t it, and I have barely gotten started.  Let’s just say I am in love with life.
  2. Where would you most like to travel to? I’m quite fascinated by Istanbul (I even blogged about it here), but right at this minute I’d be back in Thailand in a heartbeat, enjoying the food, the atmosphere, the beautiful people, and the incredible massages.
  3. Who would you most like to meet who is still living?I’d love to have His Holiness, the Dalai Lama around for a cup of tea and a chat. I have quite a few questions to ask him.
  4. Who would you most like to meet who has passed away? This is a toss up between Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Buddha and Shakespeare. I think all four at a dinner party would be fascinating. And myself from any past life – now that would be cool!
  5. What do you think is the hardest thing to do? Self work – honestly exploring, understanding and bettering yourself. But I also think it is worth it.
  6. What is your motto? Hmmm.  I would say that ‘kindness’ is my religion, and that ‘It’s all good’ would be my motto. Life is meant to be savoured in the fullest, every beautiful moment, every nuance of light and dark. It’s all good…
  7. What is your favourite charity? No favourites, although I support a number. In the end I think we all need to share a sense of compassion and kindness with those around us, including animals and the earth.
  8. What are you proud of? I’m proud of all of my wonderful clients who have embraced their heart’s calling!
  9. What ambition do you still have? To be a successful published author. (More than once… LOL!)
  10. Your favourite flower? I have two.  Gardenias remind me of my grandmother, and I love the heady fragrance of those first summer Jasmine flowers.

Bloggers I nominate (and that I hope you visit!) are:
  1.  Lorna’s Tearoom Delights – because, well, it’s about tearooms, and tea and cakes and life in Scotland and all things good.
  2. istopforsuffering – for its kindness, compassion and gentle spirit
  3. Sweet Mother – because she makes me laugh often, cry sometimes and think always
  4. Veggiewitch – Earth Mother, Veggie and Vegan Food Queen, Kind Spirit, Big Heart
  5. Nikky’s Strength and Weakness – Soulful writing about life, straight from the heart
  6. an unrefined vegan – for healthy, cruelty-free, soul nurturing recipes delivered with charm and intelligence
  7. Source of Inspiration – Poetry, pictures, heart-felt musings and wonders that uplift and inspire
  8. Onida Merlyn – for some beautiful metaphyical writings
  9. Fierce Buddhist – haiku, buddhist thoughts, philosophy and friendship – lovely!
  10. coolcookstyle – because this girl cooks YUM food, and she’s funny, cool and kind
  11. Inspire ‘Til You Expire – positive messages, lots of gratitude and good uplifting stuff
  12. LadyRomp – empowering and inspiring women

  1. I can see we don’t only share the name, but we share also the favorite flower!!! If I thought of naming another one than Jasmine, I would certainly say gardenia.
    I have been nominated yesterday for this same award, and I saw that you were on the list 🙂
    Thank you so much for thinking of me Nicole. You would certainly be on my list too if I haven’t seen your name mentioned already. I wait for your posts everyday, and always share them with my friends and on my wall so that they all learn from you the way I do. Thank you.

  2. Congratulations darling, I always knew that all that clever debating at the age of 5 about how it wasnt necessary to make ones bed would
    lead somewhere!!!!

  3. Congrats to you! Although I haven’t had the pleasure of reading that much of your blog, since I just found you, I can feel your grace, and sense the spirit you have. Now normally I wouldn’t be that bold and what some people may deem “out there” to say that! lol

    However, we’re on the same page so “it’s all good” 😉

    Also, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for mentioning my blog. I appreciate you, and so look forward to interacting with you and reading your insights 🙂

    Much Metta,


  4. It’s been an amazing couple of days here of incredible warmth and encouragement and enthusiasm from the blogging community…and now this from you – a woman who blows me away with each post. Thank you. And congratulations for the well-deserved honor to you.

  5. congratulations! I love these awards. We get to learn all sorts of things about you and check fab blogs as well!

    • Yes, they’re fun aren’t they, although they take a little extra work – but they are a brilliant way to share love around. Thank you! xx

      PS Was going to nominate you but saw that you’d already received this one – and well deserved too!

  7. Congratulations on the awards. It’s my first time here but I already think you are so much deserving of it…because my day is already brightened by your blog by providing me with gustatory delights 🙂

  8. you certainly deserve this award. And I love your answers. I’ve met his HH Dalai Lama, over 10 years ago, and it is still one of the highlites of my life…no words to describe the experience. I’ve also been to Istanbul and it is quite an amazing place. Hope you get there one day. Also love what you call-“it’s all good”…and of course the rewards of the hard job of “self work”. beautiful post…once again, so glad I found you!
    much love light and JOY

  9. Many congratulations on a very well deserved award! And thank you for nominating me Nicole, much appreciated! I read this yesterday but was having a ‘no typing’ day to give the wrists a rest.
