Black Cat Blue Sea Award

Standard

What is Black Cat Blue Sea Award?

“This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes” – Ella

WrittenInGeek, thank you again for nominating me for an award, especially one like this. Go check out her blog, and the blogs of the nominees that I will be mentioning.

The Rules

  1. Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
  2. The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
  3. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
  4. If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

Here are my answers:

1.What are your all time 5 favourite quotes?

I tend to love the quotes of Marcus Aurelius, he’s got a lot of good ones!!  Here are just a few that speak to me! 🙂

  • “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
  • “You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
  • “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
  • “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
  • “That which is not good for the bee-hive cannot be good for the bees.”

 

2. If you had a different name, would you be a different person?

I definitely think that there is merit to the idea, since it would mean our life had changed.  As we are a product of both our environment, the sum of our past, changing something at birth (i.e. the name) COULD change the course of our lives events.  If my name was SANTA CLAUS, might I not end up growing to hate Christmas?  If I hated Christmas, then maybe I would not celebrate it and in then I wouldn’t grow up to create the next big revolution to Christmas lights which would then revolutionize the whole lighting industry!  OR maybe I should’ve waited to answer until AFTER my morning coffee!

 

3.What is your favorite music/song? Please give me a link! Would love to listen to your favs!

I love music, heck I was even a band nerd in high school and college, so my favorite tends to be whatever fits my mood at the time.  Right now its the traditional English folk tune “Over the Hills and Far Away” performed by John Tams.

 

Now on to my nominations…. well, heck I nominate anyone who wants to answer a few silly questions!  So should you choose to accept this mission and share this, please answer the same questions posted above.  🙂

Thanks again everyone for your support!
